    In the market for a camper. Im thinking I need to stay under 4000lbs, dry. Probably around 20-22 ft, maybe a single slide, queen bed, couples camper. I looked at Rpods but dont like how the bed runs sideways, Im 6'3. What are you towing?

    Did you look at a Winnebago mini? I saw a frontier pulling one of those. Look like 18 or 20 foot

    Not what you are looking for, its an rPod. But, at a little over 3,000 pounds and about 330 tongue weight it does pull just fine. No need for a weight distribution hitch, but do have 300# Sumosprings, just to level the ride.

    Bump I remember hearing something about how much the front of a trailer catches wind. I would look in to that also. I know trailer brakes would be a for sure need.

    The Launch is nice, but Im thinking a hybrid wont work for us. Nice looking though, and has a nice layout

    I do like the e pro, and no-bo. Seems like a really popular one is a wolf pup. We want a queen bed that doesnt face sideways, so my big feet can hang off. I already have a 7x14 for motorcycles, so I really dont need a toyhauler. Keep em coming!

    I looked at so many yesterday that I was damn near rving. I’m going to to look some more but there are some nice mini campers

  13. About 4500 with all of our stuff in it. Using an equalizer hitch and it pulled it fine. Has to work a bit on the hills, but nothing that is working the truck to hard.

    Bumped I know you’ve been researching the TT. Have you looked at the Colman’s? They look reasonably priced. Not sure of the quality. I saw one that was 20 ft with a sideways queen bed. 13500.00
