I did the internet search and found the tc in the Quad Cities area and at a dealership in Michigan, both with good prices compared to Lance. Then I saw one parked at Menards and it really looked good. All the necessary bells and whistles. After many tc years, we want 3 burners, an oven, N/South bed, double sink, electric jacks etc. Of course, looking at one from the outside on a parking lot doesn't tell you about loose screws and a leaky roof. I like that Forest River now makes it. I'll let you know.
Looks like the "best" value in new campers right now is in the above unit. Do any of you have a newer one that you can tell me about. They all look good at the dealers, but I'm interested in how they hold up over time. Seems like the older units don't, but if the company's ownership has changed, things might have improved.
I'm sort of in the market for a new truck camper and maybe a new truck. I'd like to start pulling a fishing boat or cargo trailer behind my rig at times. I can buy a camper that ends at the tailgate of a truck or one that hangs over. If I buy the maximum camper, I'll have to use the extension. I'd like to hear from those who have had experience with the extension. Would I be better off getting a truck with the 8' bed and then buying a camper that had no overhang or is the extension manageable as long as I observe the reduced weight/towing capacity that is necessary with them?
