TAKE A LOOK AT THESE NEW IDEAS FOR YOUR HOME AND FAMILY · BY PETER DRYDEN CAMPING TRAILER: Here's a new fold-down tent trailer ("above, left) that can sleep 6 to 8 people and features a rear louvred dropdown panel that gives you access to kitchen services--including packing the ice chest, filling the water tank, or having lunch--without need to unlatch and raise the top. Low road (closed) height of 46" and width of 78" allow complete driver visibility to rear and sides. Opening quickly and easily by crank, the unit has a 14' x 11' living area, space enough for comfort on a rainy day. Details: Nimrod, Dept. PP, 500 Ford Blvd., Hamilton, Ohio 45011.
