Here's a great camper I'm looking to buy. Actually I'm on a budget, so I think my budget will fit with this vehicle. Lance 5000 with Aluminum roof (VS Rubber) A/C, Generator, and electric jacks. The floor of this camper measures 9' 10"

I'd be all over that.

I'm on a pretty tight budget myself.

When I started looking this was the only Lance camper listed with a built in generator and that was tops on my list.

I'm under budget and I'm into the camper more than I could sell it for but it has ended up being exactly what I wanted.

There's that added countertop right below the pantry, you'll really like that too.

Life up the mattress and open the front window shade and look closely for any water damage.

Keep us (and me) what you end up doing.

Awesome rig and trip reports! I miss my ATV but the tendinitis in my shoulders told me it was time to quit, saving my pennies for a trail sized side by side now.

There used to be a poster on here that went by the name Rubi-Ranch that had a rig like the one you posted above, I always liked that setup.

Thank you.

I'm rubiranch. [emoticon]

Years ago when I first joined I went by my current username. Years later I couldn't remember my old password so I re-joined using rubiranch. Then I figured out what my old password was and so I'm back using my original username.

Out here where I live the best trails are limited to 50" machines. That's what I always recommend people to buy.

My other camper died and this one is its replacement.

In the description it said that it fits Lance 1172 and 1191 campers so I looked them up and they are really close to mine size wise so that's what I went with.

It actually fits pretty darn nice.

I am quite happy with it so far. [emoticon] But its only been one day. LOL

I do like the looks of the older trucks a lot better than the new ones.

I thought mine was ugly the day I bought it and the 2020 trucks are soo butt ugly its pathetic.

I think its part of the new bold "look at me" generation. [emoticon]

That's a nice looking setup you have there and I do have to agree with you, your cover might be one size too big but it sure beats getting one too small.
