- I've been having camping dreams for several years now. I was unemployed during MOTD 2009 and my wife told me to get myself out there at the last minute, so I found a campsite to share, borrowed a tent and solidified the camping bug.
I've been trolling the eBay trailer listings since then and stumbled across this trailer for a price that I never imagined that I'd see for these units, so I drove from Dallas to Tennessee to pick it up. It had 1 year of previous ownership on it and it doesn't even look like it was used (the mattress was still wrapped in plastic!)
I wanted something that was a bit more lux than camping in a tent. I also wanted something that was easier to deal with for regular use... a kit that didn't have to be assembled and packed up every time you wanted to go out. While growing up, my parents usually had a class C motorhome (20-ish feet long with a bed over the van nose/motor). I wanted something like that, where you could be a bit spontaneous. Something that could contain all of your camping gear and be ready to go in short order... just pack a cooler and go!
