Nice instrument and modestly priced. I'm not going to actually start installation of any of this sort of thing until I have figured out how to cleanly route wiring. What I have discovered so far of factory wiring and plumbing is not particularly set up with maintenance and modification in mind.
Craigslist. buy used. My camper cost 38k new I got it with two years of use for $20k You can probably find one in great condition for about the same markdown %
If I got a toy hauler, I would not be wanting to haul the toys exposed to selective theft and the elements.
The wife and I have been looking for a while. We originally were looking at some pretty big ones, but with my daughter being 16, it will likely be the 2 of us 90% of the time. We want something small enough to tow with my truck now, but big enough to live in for a week without killing each other. The goal is to drop somewhere in the gorge as a hide-a-way but be able to take it places when needed.
We are looking for something slightly larger, but now the wife is considering a mobile office/get-a-way so we could end up with a toy hauler with removable dentists chair, or just get rid of the dinning area with a slide out side.
<edit> This one is close to what I want. With either a fold up rear deck for motos, or the front deck.
This rig has monolithic insulated floor and shower is over fresh water tank.JBP on a lot of these rigs you work on the underside stuff by dropping the bottom skin for access
I always secure the latch closed with a padlock or a hairpin clip.My trailer came off of the ball hitch going over a frost heave. Horrific sound. Did surprisingly little damage...but let this be a reminder to close that little safety latch, kids! Luckily I was alone or wifey would have freaked out...
People that don't do this are the same group that shouldn't have a license in the first place.I always secure the latch closed with a padlock or a hairpin clip.
I tried to astroturf my tailgate once. Couldn't get a clean wipe so I had it removed.the astroturf on the tailgate is a nice touch.
everyone knows hosing it down is the only proper technique. c'mon man!I tried to astroturf my tailgate once. Couldn't get a clean wipe so I had it removed.

YES. I can't even imagine how slow that must be.
That is awesome.Deyv & Isa have a sweet new 4x4 rig! (Safari sprinter long)
Yikes. Awful proud of them for sure.
That is sweet. Earthroamer is just up the interstate from me, iirc. Similar ideas.
Yeah their pics on facebook gave me total camper envy!Deyv & Isa have a sweet new 4x4 rig! (Safari sprinter long)
And it STILL looks like a bargain compared to an Earthroamer.Sale Price: $128,900
If it's geared right it would be very kick ass. I know the diesel Hilux's I checked out in AU straight hauled ass and with the amount of torque they put out, even with a full camper I met it would still move. A petrol version would be painful, though.YES. I can't even imagine how slow that must be.
That is awesome.
