    My small RV. I can boondock awhile and fit most anywhere. Perfect for my wife and I. We are planning a trip to Grand Canyon, Bryce antelope and Moab next June from PA.

    I had a truck bed camper once. It was a pop up style Skamper. I really liked that camper, but the wife didn't. Should have kept it come to think about it....LOL

    This is the one that my wife and I think would be best for our first travel trailer. Has all the amenities we are interested in and is dual axle. It can also be optioned up really nicely. (Solar, bigger generator, dual propane, entertainment center, self leveling, etc..) I like the idea of boondocking but Mrs. Chef probably would prefer a campground. We'll see. And an F150 (my preference but any mid-level truck would do) would haul this quite nicely even at altitude.

    The way they photograph these things they can make them look as big as Biltmore.

    Nice unit.

    All the Best,

    It's got everything that you need.

    My wife is a bit like yours. She prefers the RV Resort type of places with all the amenities although she seldom, if ever, uses them. I can get by with a lot less. When we had our smaller Class "C" I used to like camping in State Parks, COE parks and the like. The latest rig is a bit big to comfortably get in to many of those places. We've never really boondocked for more than a day or two.

    I've met people who camp for months in a small teardrop trailer. My problem with smaller units is getting enough storage space for all the "stuff" that I inevitably drag along. A lot of it is not actually stuff that I need but rather stuff that I want to have … just in case.

    Most of our camping is boondocking with close friends We don't have a tiny travel trailer, but we surely don't have a large one either. It's a 2013 StarCraft Autumn Ridge 245DS. We bought it "used-in new condition" when it was three years old. The people that had it decided the couldn't handle it because of faltering health. We got lucky.

    Back in the day when we purchased our first 5th wheel (25 foot) we had more fun with it than lager ones we bought. We purchased a 32 foot 5th wheel and a 32 foot motor home. However we still enjoyed the 25 foot more.

    To each his own!
    If you're comparing costs, unless you're traveling full time you're right it's cheaper to stay at motels and hotels. The thing that interests my wife and I about a toy hauler though is having the same bed every night and knowing it's a comfortable bed, no bedbugs or roaches, (we've found them even in supposedly 4 star hotels) knowing when the sheets were washed, not having to eat at restaurants 2-3 times a day, etc. For us we would want to take our MC and the truck burns almost the same amount of gas hauling the MC on a trailer as hauling it in a toy hauler. Of course a MC trailer is much cheaper than even a used toy hauler. I guess it depends on how much travel my wife and I want to do when we get the chance to do it. At the moment travel is on hold due to an elderly relatives slowly declining health.

    All of the above and the fact that you only have to pack once and unpack once. But, he's right. There's no way that you can logically justify an RV if you are not full timing … except that it is just so much friggin' fun.

    This is SO important to us. My wife worked in the hotel industry for years and has related some of the horror stories to me. Besides that, my career... Let's just say I know how disgusting people can be. I don't want to bed down in a room that is cleaned by a minimum wage housekeeper after most of the people that have stayed there.
