I have a unit picked out and I can afford it. Im just worried of the unknown expense that can come along. I keep going back and forth in my mind. Can someone convince me to take the plung......thanks! First trailer purchase.
When we picked out our trailer last May, we "thought" our vehicle would pull it no problem as we were within ALL the limits of our tow vehicle....We could afford our trailer no problem...After a year of towing(twice through long mountain passes) we realized our tow vehicle wasnt sufficient and we wanted to have more truck than we really needed to keep our family safe on the road. We then purchased a 35,000$ tow vehicle. Just make sure your tow vehicle is going to do what you need it to do, safely, and make sure you are within the capacities of your truck or whatever you are towing with. Dont let the dealer convince you that your vehicle can tow your trailer, check our the specs of your truck and the different weights of the trailer! I would recommend taking the trailer out for a drive with your vehicle first, you want to make sure that your vehicle will comfortable tow the trailer. Just my 2 cents!
Lol...im just being ultra conservative....how much to get a camper stocked and ready?
That depends. What's your budget? I would strongly recommend that you have dedicated equipment in your trailer. You dont' want to have to move a ton of stuff in and out every time you take a trip. You can get everything you need at Walmart, prolly cost you over $100. Or you can do what a lot of us do and hit up the local thrift store. My first set of TT pots & pans,crockpot, 3 comforters, 3 sheet sets, and towels cost me about $50 at the thrift store. I did pony up for some good folding camp chairs. Once you spend the weekend in Camp Driveway, you'll figure out what you need to buy.
