RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

Is everyone towing their 21BHS with a V8 powered TV? I'm pulling mine with a v6 3.0Supercharged ... tows very easy. in fact the 21 BHS is more narrow than my old PAlomino Stamped S17 and is lighter too, so this 21' trailer is easier to pull than my 17' old one. Checked out the Q7 on the Audi site. Very nice tow vehicle!

RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

Thanks for the calculator information. I figured worst case scenario with the trailer at maximum 5000 lbs and a 20% safety margin. Tongue weight, Gross Combined Vehicle Weight, travel trailer Gross Weight, are within Nissan's recommended capacities. The 21BHS @ 5000 lbs Gross Weight is too heavy for my pickup with a 20% safety factor. Not in a hurry, so will continue to camp with current rig while deciding the next move. Guess I'm spoiled towing a 1500LB 11RD CampLite camper with the Frontier. If I'm on the interstate & blocked when trying to get in the right lane, have plenty of power on hand to pass if needed & maintain a good speed going up mountains. The wind has not been a issue yet & towed in windy situations, too. MPG so far with this rig is around 16MPG @ 55MPH. Some of the camp sites in the mountains & on the beach work well with the 11RD. Maybe we don't need the extra room after all! :) Thanks Again,

None of that came on my 21BHS. They would probably add it as part of an order. They are good at accommodating special requests. Nice looking rig!

RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

When we move up in size from the 11RD, decided to go with a 21BHS. Like the bunks, dinette, and 60X80 queen bed that has room on both sides to get on & off. At first we were interested in the 13QBB, but decided to go with a larger CampLite. Thinking our 2013 260HP V6 Frontier with a 6300lb towing capacity will be sufficient to tow the 21BHS with empty weight around 3600lbs with GVW of 5000lbs. Is everyone towing their 21BHS with a V8 powered TV?

Paid $10,000 for our new 11RD from a dealer. Ours is a basic camper, but the more we look at campers this camper is the one for us. PM sent.

Used to tow a 1000lb 2004 LTW Chalet A-Frame pop-up (low wind resistance) with a 1987 Toyota 2.4L 4 cylinder pickup getting 22 mpg @ 55MPH non mountain areas. Towing the 1500lb CampLite 11RD with a 2003 2.4L 4 cylinder Tacoma @ 55MPH gets 16MPG non mountain areas. Towing the CampLite with the 2013 4.0L automatic Frontier @ 55MPH gets 15MPG non-mountain areas. Fuel economy drops to 13MPG @ 65MPH with same TV. It's easy to get into small sites with the CampLite 11RD or small pop-up that larger campers cannot get into. This morning when leaving a small site on the ocean front @ Hunting Island SC, the easiest way to pull the camper out was to turn the camper "manually" 180 degrees on the site. Used two small pieces of plywood under the tongue wheel/jack. Took about 15 minutes to turn the 1500lb camper 180 degrees on sand and pine needles. That would be difficult with a larger and heavier camper. Have been looking at larger CampLites & Fiberglass campers. For now will be keeping the CampLite 11RD. We started transporting two bicycles inside the CampLite: http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1321_zps407a00cd.jpg http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1317_zps2bf68fda.jpg Best fuel cost this week $2.99 per gallon in SC.

RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

We bought a Camplite 21BHS TT. We are extremely happy with it. Very comfortable, easy to tow. Took it to Fort Wilderness at Disney for a week in September and had several people come over to look at it. The only issues we have to get taken care of are a couple of scratches on cabinet doors, and a mis-cut refrigerator panel. There are no functional issues at all. I also like the aluminum roof and floor. Are you towing with a 1500 or 2500 Dodge Pickup? Nice looking rig! We checked out the Camplite 21BHS and 21RBS at a dealership. Really like the 21RBS since it's only two of us. Learned LivinLite offers optional spray on insulation on the bottom of the floor. Just got back today from a camping trip @ Hunting Island State Park SC with the Camplite. Had several visitors looking at the CampLite this week. Took this sun rise over the Atlantic this morning: http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1415_zpsa1e4a026.jpg Took this shot out of the CampLite window yesterday before sun set: http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1416_zps1eea897d.jpg

RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

Yep, The Bearcat is neat looking. LivingLite is charging ahead, even with a new 5th wheel design. We're thinking about moving up to a larger CampLite TT. Camping with the CampLite last week at Hunting Island SC.

RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

Saw a aluminum unpainted truck camper for sale a few weeks ago at an RV dealer on I40 between Morganton & Marion NC. It was all aluminum and looked 20 to 30 years old. Not sure who built it, but a neat looking camper. Just got back from another camping trip today with the CampLite. Got two camping trips in during August, Stone Mountain SP NC & Bandits Roost @ Wilkesboro NC. The traffic in front of me made an abrupt stop today when towing the CampLite. The Frontier/CampLite rig stopped easily. Been getting around 15MPG @ 55MPH in the foothills and 16 MPG @ 55MPH in non mountain areas towing the CampLite with the V6 Frontier. http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1293_zpsa4f80896.jpg http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1291_zps849e5d7c.jpg http://i657.photobucket.com/albums/uu299/vstromklr/2013/IMG_1292_zpsb6c4896b.jpg

RE: Livin Lite Camplite owner - review/comments

Yep, we like them, too. If we move up in size, will probably buy a LivinLite CampLite 13QBB.

RE: UK travel Trailer

Like windows in the front. Does it also have rear windows? Nice looking TT.
