In September, I easily fit everything I needed for a two-week trip (hunting gear, sleeping bag, camping gear, coolers, clothes, dog food and dog water containers, etc.) into the Space Trailer 6500's bed, with plenty of space left over. I then loaded up the dogs and headed north. In a word, the Space Trailer performed flawlessly. On the highway the trailer pulled behind my Subaru like a dream. I literally bounced it over hundreds of miles of rough dirt roads in Nebraska and Montana and never had a lick of trouble with it. As happens with anything you tow, my average mileage did drop a bit (in this case by about two to three miles per gallon) but it was still far better than what I'd get in my truck, and for the first time I was able to match my short-bed truck's gear-hauling ability.
