    And, with either one you'd need a equipment trailer with a lift kit!

    If I was setting up a trailer
    It would be 7 foot wide 7 foot tall inside 16 to 18 foot long It would have heat and air Well insulated led light and would have a generator
    Probably the best answer is a small camper and all you would have to make is a loading bench

    2 of the most efficient loading trailers I have seen were gooseneck car haulers. they both had living quarters in the front and room for several guys in the back. they did not have a wall to separate the living space which made it great for guys to sit and yak in the evening.

    a seven footer can get cramped fast-get one 8 foot wide, you wont be sorry.

    after you panel the walls you wont have 7 ft left.

    You can get pretty creative when customizing an enclosed car hauler. I think to have one with sleeping quarters and reloading bench it would need to be at least 7' wide and 16' long. AC and heat are a piece if cake as RV AC units mount in the roof vent openings. Heat is just as simple provided the roof is insulated. If not, condensation will cause dripping and a mess for the reloader. I could easily mount a press and reloading equipment to one of the 2 bunk shelves in my hybrid if needed. Being 6.5' tall inside, I could actually add another bunk shelf for additional storage. Mine isn't big enough for comfort but just for last minute sleep quarters set up. The camper in my truck bed would cover the comfort part while the trailer offered room for gear.

    see if you can get chris harris from bullet central to send you pics of his. after seeing loading trailers of every style over the years, his is the absolute best set up ive ever seen. it even has an air compressor on board

    Anyone ever see or have any pictures of the setup that Jim and Sally Bauer use at 1K matches?

    Nope. Simply shooting standing once in a while seems to keep them far away.

    Someone sent me a link to a great trailer setup. Sadly I cannot find it again.
