Very nice. You will enjoy it. Mine is similar except it has flip out beds. It's probably a little big to pull with a two door though.

Congrats on you new camper.

Here's mine.

I want one! jealous of you guys but sometimes the ol' tent is nice too.
I hear ya. I've always done the primitive type camping. My wife thinks we're crazy for trying to bring as many conveniences as possible (laptop to watch movies, coffee maker, satellite radio, etc.) with us while pitching a tent in the middle of nowhere. She went one time with me...got poison ivy on her ankles and that was it for her. Now all of a sudden, these campers are looking pretty nice.

I did all my "primitive camping" when I was in the Army. Something about continually freezing your ass off for months in the dead of winter, all while enjoying everything that scenic Hoenfels Germany has to offer (OBTW - Hoenfels has to be the armpit of the universe)... Well, that pretty much killed the joys of camping for me. This looks like a much better way to do it. :smokin:

Can you rent these thing? I'd love to try before I bought.

Very nice- I looked at those when I bought mine. They also make that trailer in a 13'. If I remember correctly, the 16' was about 2900lbs, and the 13' about 2500 dry.

Yeah- they have everything! Head has a black water tank that can be emptied. Plus a fresh water tank, and a grey water tank. Kitchen sink, 3 burner stove, micro, fridge, a/c, beds, dinette table, heater, etc.
