I looked that one up and saw a 2012 for sale..Very nice TC and I love the floorplan..I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

Nice unit.


When are you picking it up or did it sell already? [emoticon] Seriously though, there are a lot of nicer TCs out there. I’m just not feeling enough gain to sell/buy a different one.

Thanks for everyone's replies about the Chalet campers.

I'm still in the looking mode right now so I haven't decided on any one camper.

If I could swing it I would LOVE to have a Host camper and am watching a few used units right now. Of course I would love to get a NEW unit but the Yukon camper I spec'd out was just over $90K. That shocked me......[emoticon] But I had all the bells and whistles on it also.

It has been a few years since I have looked but I was not overly impressed with the Eagle Cap campers I looked at compared to a Host.
If I was looking at a Eagle Cap I would go for the 1165 floorplan over the 1200 floorplan.

I've pretty much decided I am getting a triple slide unit no matter which brand I get. And I know that I want the side entry style over the rear entry.


Here is the TS116 that is currently for sale.

I hope you have or are willing to buy a truck that will handle the load. Depending on accessories the wet weight of that camper is well over 4000# and could easily hit 4500#. Add a couple of passengers and gear and the weight is going to be in the 6000# range. That is way beyond what I would want to carry for a 350/3500 dual wheel drive.

I have a truck that will carry the weight. I wouldn't be looking at these campers if I didn't have a rig that could carry it. But thanks for your concern.
