Camper probably weighs in around 300lbs, plus cabinet, water tank and all our gear for two months [emoji51] it still handles pretty nicely with no sway bar! We cannot ditch the camper, it isn't its own house like the usual ones.
I'll discuss trails with the other half and see what we want to do. I do really want to do White Rim but that is during the trails that sound fun....

Our longer wheelbases give us a great advantage on the selected trails. Where Jeeps and short wheelbase vehicles have issues, we just roll up and over with great stability. None of the selected trails have mandatory tip-over prone tracks. Instead those are optional obstacles, like the washtub and tip-over point on Hell's or the optional "Where Eagle's Dare" off of the Spike. I'd be more concerned about the bumper and approach angles. If you do decide to take it off, bring a chain and some locks. You can secure it to the frame of our Airstream if you would like.
We've camped/boondocked all around Moab, and the crime rate is stupidly low. Less than 100 burglaries and thefts in all of 2016. Moab itself is pretty much crime-free from the locals, and a good chunk of the folks that come to Moab are like-minded, decent individuals. They might be dicks on the trail on occasion, but they aren't going to try to steal something.
And *if* a certain piece of equipment arrives tomorrow and *if* we get it installed tomorrow, we've got your spare.
Side note, Mike and I have run most of Poison Spider, all of Top of the World, and Hell's and part of Fins on stock 33s worn to 31s and without sliders (and a bunch others we aren't running this event). We plan to run Sevenmile on Saturday to get familiar with it, and Aaron has run the entirety of Fins. Chris (PitSlave) has done the Moab Trifecta and others, and I've talked to a few Jeep friends who know the Trifecta well. I honestly think you will be fine, even with the camper. Just don't drive off the tracks on the slick rock.
And at any point you're just over it, there are options to turn back around or avoid all the obstacles. We've got your back!
