    Nice toad!

    We've thought about one, but haven't taken the plunge yet. We'd have to buy another vehicle as neither of our cars is suitable. The thought of built in shuttling capability is very enticing!

    This has a slideout for the couch/divan and three popouts (one in front and one on each side towards the rear) so we can sleep a lot of people (easily 10 or 11 if I convert the couch and dinette ) or each have our own very private popout .

    The tow vehicle (454ci 3/4 ton 4-wheel drive) rarely sees any use other than to tow the trailer.

    The thing I have grown to love most: Having a bathroom inside so I don't have to roam in the middle of the night to take care of business. I'd like to add a receiver to the rear of it so I could use my receiver rack.

    Yeah, a lack of horsepower can be a real pain sometimes. On this particular trip I had a number of encounters with irate motorists who didn't understand the difficulties one encounters while hauling a few thousand pounds over a mountain pass after an inadequate breakfast. Next time I'll fuel up on something besides Cheerios and perhaps I'll take along a Clif bar or two

    My wife had a cab over camper on her 85 Dodge pickup when I met her. We upgraded that to a used (barely) pop up trailer. After a few years with the pop up we thought about putting an air conditioner on it. We had several hot trips to Moab and other places. Once we found out that it would cost about $1000 to add AC to we figured we should just look at a fancier trailer.

    We ended up with a 24' Jayco Eagle towed by my 2004 F250 diesel. We're happy with this setup and don't want to go any bigger. With the cost of hotels and meals I think the camper option can pay for itself pretty quickly if you take a lot of trips.

    Here's our rig...

    Hey all,
    My wife and I picked up a 25ft Jayco TT last year and have had a major blast.... I didn't think I'd be the trailer type of guy, but we've had so much fun.... Here's a couple pics from last summer up here in Washington.... Check out the bald eagle we saw while riding...

    Here is my road tripper...



    Tons of room in the opened pop-up, but the convienence of not having to set it up would sure be nice!
    Grit, spit, and a whole lot of duct tape!

    I have been lusting after something just like that for the last few months. I'm sure it's in the future for my wife and I and dogs. I drive a tacoma, too, so the small size camper is just what we want. I've never thought about our cats (x2), but it looks like someone on this thread camps with them. I guess i'll have to get one and find out.

    You should check out a Casita. While they are expensive for their size, they are light/easy to pull, high quality, and retain their resale value.

    We've found that new trailers of this type start at about $13,000. Casita is a big name, so is Bigfoot (really!) and Escape, the latter two being Canadian, eh.

    Used prices are surprisingly affordable. You can find 'em for less than the price of an upscale new mountain bike, especially if you don't mind having a vintage model like ours. Funny, my Cannondale on the hitch rack in the original photo at the start of this thread is worth about double what we paid for our trailer! There have been recent E-Bay sales of ready-to-roll trailers in good condition for $3000 or even less. A good source for info is www.fiberglassrv.com, this site is devoted strictly to these lil lightweight wonders.

    Don't tell Mrs. Bigfoot I posted the middle photo...our trailer hasn't gotten its post-holiday-trip cleaning yet! Here's our kitchen. Cans and such go in the two right upper cabinets, plates, cups, napkins, etc. go in the upper left. Pots and pans, flatware, etc. go in the lower cabinet. The ice-box goes for days on just a block of ice. There's a couple of propane 'fridge models that can fit in there too, but we really can't justify the cost of that upgrage.

    The other two pics aren't of our trailer (again, she'd shoot me), but here you see the table/bed combo. We've rarely used the table, we either take our meals outside or just sit on the bed.

    I would also look at the Aliner. Google it. It has a very loyal following.

    Like many folks we started with a trailer but we have graduated to a motorhome, Class C first and now a Class A. Having the living quarters in the driving vehicle is great. You can access the fridge and pantry while on the road, passengers can sleep or do whatever they want while in motion, plus the hassles of towing are eliminated. The only time a trailer is an advantage is if you park in one spot for extended periods, which we don't do but some folks might. Otherwise motorhomes are the way to go imo. Very much easier if you have pets too.

    Ours is an '88 Coachmen, super clean, that we bought 2 1/2 years ago for under 15k. Good used RVs can be had for very reasonable prices if you know what to look for.

    Hey Studpendous Man, could you give some closer pics of that bike rack set up? Can any specs on it? I'm really interested in that.
    Thanks!

    Don't currently have an RV but I would love to get one. While I love LakeRaven's "Panzerwagon" I would get one of these because it will go with my other hobby http://www.hoseheadsclassifieds.com/...s/DSC00627.JPG They are pretty pricey so I would have to build my own on an older truck chassis.

    I have to ask, approximately where is that old "diamond in the rough" located? I think I have seen it before and just can't remember where. Thanks!

    It's so ugly it's beautiful.
