First question to ask: Do you have any used units for sale? Second question: do you have anything cheaper?

If you haven’t done much or any camping, you may not like it and you sure don’t want to be upside down with long term payments on something you don’t like.


Yes, It seems to take about 4 different campers before you decide what it is that you really want and like. By a used camper used first!! Then if you decide that you like camping you can then purchase a new one.

Not to discourage the OP but your actually correct, it took us 4 trailers to be 100% content. Lol
Unfortunately 4 different tow vehicles, ouch.

post your payload (off your door sticker) and we can help.

example for my truck and trailer

1850 lbs payload
- 400 lbs family
- 250 lbs in the bed (wood/bikes)
- 100 hitch
=1100 lbs

1100 /0.15 = 7333 lb traler fully loaded.

^ the dividing by 0.15 goes from tongue weight (15 percent is good estimate) to gross weight of trailer. don't pay attention to dry weights they mean nothing.

im well under this and comfortable for what its worth


Q: Whats brown and sticky???

A: A Stick....
