So I finally received my MORV (Manley ORV trailer) on May 22nd, 2013. Upon first inspection it was the perfect size for the Jeep Wrangler TJ and it was flawless. The packaging was done with attention to detail and to keep the trailer scratch free. During the assembly process Josh Manley (owner of Manley ORV) sent pictures at different stages of assembly. Once completed it was a few days shipping to Florida from Ohio.
It came ready to be towed home and one can't really feel it being towed behind the Jeep, its light yet very sturdy and solid. After a week I took it to Lazy Springs Off-Road park where I planned to test how rugged it really was.
While at Lazy Springs the trailer (or MORV) went thru mud holes, Hill climbs, lose dirt, sharp turns and it handled everything just fine.
For carrying your gear for a day at the park or a long term road trip this trailer is perfect particularly for the smaller chassis TJ.
In the coming weeks I'll be working on additions to the trailer to make it a self reliant off-road camping rig with propane, electricity (to charge electronics), water, and fuel. If you drive a Jeep I highly recommend adding this to your equipment as it doubles as a utility trailer as well as an off-road camping rig.
