I said I had some ideas of my own.  This was one of them.

I tested the idea by using some aluminum foil loaf pans I got at the dollar store that happened to match up to 1:6 scale for a bike trailer with a 2' x 4' (60 cm x 120 cm) footprint to make a crude mockup. The loaf pans have been hanging around the apartment for almost a year now, and they have gotten a little battered and bent, but they are still good to put together for some photos.

An 1:6 scale action figure I've nicknamed "Dave" will stand in for scale.

The design would consist of six lightweight boxes.

Four of the boxes would be 2' x 4' (60 cm x 120 cm).  The other two boxes would be 2' x 2' (60 cm x 60 cm). 

One of the boxes, hereforth referred to as the "main box", would be more heavily built than the others, and would be permanently attached to the trailer bed.

Each of the boxes would be built with a slight draught angle, allowing them to be nested together.

Each of the boxes would have connection points along their edges, allowing them to be connected together with pins or latches.

When in travel mode, the trailer could be packed up in one of two ways.  The most compact way would be to simply nest all the boxes together with the small boxes together on top, like so.

This configuration keeps the trailer compact at only 2' to 3' (60 cm to 100 cm), which is good, has a big disadvantage.  Any cargo and supplies you bring along would have to be stored in the two smaller boxes when travelling, and would have to be unloaded every time you stop to camp.  It also leaves your cargo and supplies exposed.  You never know when it is going rain.  You also never know when your bike is parked if somebody might take an interest in your belongings while you are away.

The other possible configuration while in travel mode would be to invert to two small boxes and place them on top of the main box like so ...

... then stack the other three boxes on top.

This is less compact than the other way, but provides more protection for your belongings. (It's still pretty compact though.)

In camping mode, the boxes are seperated from each other, then reconnected to form a living and sleeping space.  The two small boxes extend the length of the trailer to provide space for hed and feet, two of the larger boxes widen the trailer and become side walls, and the other box becomes the roof.

One of the two sidewalls would be hinged with the roof at the top, and double as the door.

Inside, a lattice of boards is used to create a sleeping platform.

The two sides can slide together or extend apart, covering the cargo in the main box, ...

... but still allowing access to it.

It can also be reconfigured to create a chair back for seating.

Good night.

The design is not perfect.  Seperating the boxes and reconnecting them into camping  mode would be a bit slow and frustrating, especially if it is raining.  It does make a pretty good sized space for sleeping in that is a little less coffin like than other designs however, and still remains compact when  on the road.

The aluminum loaf pans are a little crude, albeit effective, for a mockup.  The next mockup will a little bit better.

That will be the new health fad--inhaling coffee.

It's supposed to cure cancer and make your lungs look 20 years younger.

Chex Quest Discussion / mod compatible chex quest 3 wad
« Last post by amdcrash on February 08, 2020, 01:50:00 PM »

i would like to play my favorite mods such as russian overkill and trailblazer but when i play it with chex quest 3, none of the weapons spawn and sometimes they have enemy's in the mod that does not spawn. hence my request for a chex quest 3 mod that removes the old enemy's and the old weapons and returns them to their doom counterparts.

thank you in advance.
