See these files in the SCA-CAMPING section of the Florilegium:

The second file includes the plans to make a not-very-difficult  
firepit which Duke Federick has made popular in the West Kingdom and  
elsewhere. If you don't wish to build it, I think there are also some  
references there to folks who have them available for sale.

"a small trailer". Does this mean you are following the usual  
progression I see in SCA vehicles? :-)

When folks start out in the SCA they often have a small, compact car.  
They then start playing and decide they need more carrying capacity,  
so they get a bigger car. This later moves to large car or mini-van  
or to a full-sized pickup truck or van. Somewhere along the line a  
trailer gets added. Sometimes the trailer itself gets bigger. (We  
will be looking for a 5x8 box trailer to tow behind our Honda  
minivan, to replace my low-slung box trailer once I find a job). I  
have seen this progress to small buses.  In Ansteorra, large horse  
trailers are now getting added to the mix.

I did wonder whether this push towards larger vehicles would be  
halted in the rising gas prices last summer, but gas is cheap again.
