Re: Important

We have camped twice this year, normally we camp twice a month. This summer has been stupid busy. Looking forward to camping a lot in October and November.

I honestly don't want to go there, cost too much money, it is cool but I've been many times. T and the kids never have been there. I'm making T happy by leaving my mistress at home for the first time in almost 8 years.

Earlier this year we camped w/o the jeep, but that was for a baseball tournament.

Re: Important

It would have to be cheap. This camper is too small, but better than a tent.

Cold beer in the refrigerator

Re: Important

Depends on what you mean by cheap. After owning 6 campers I have learned not to buy cheap ones.

Like it surprises any of you I have had multiple campers

I think I still owe $6k on it. 2006 Aerolite 26QS. 4 bunks, queen bed slide. All the usual amenities.

Re: Important

having one is great at WF, but we haven't used ours enough. after towing it with the flex for vacation the flex had to get the trans rebuilt and new rear hubs. i don't know if the camper was the cause of that or not...

Re: Important

I certainly don't need a bigger camper, this one works out great for us, but since I have a 1 ton truck now...
