We have really come full circle the last 20 couple years. When we first started, all we did was dry camp. Then we felt we needed full hookups all the time. I am back to the original version now so if I ever buy another, it will have the biggest tanks that I can find. In an earlier life, I added both fresh and gray water tanks to trailers that did not have them but I want it already done for me now.

I wonder how well a "dry camping package" would sell? Take an existing floorplan, cut out some of the frills, bump up the tank sizes, add a couple hundred watts of solar and extra batteries.

Great idea Lyle,,,,

that's probably why they don't offer it, because its a good idea,,


Like importing Aussie off-road suspension systems to handle our cr@ppy freeways...

Strange numbers.

Simply swap feeds on grey and fresh. [emoticon]

You'll get big tanks in the toy hauler segment, but that also has it's drawbacks on living space, etc. I also think that weights are calculated with propane and full fresh water, hence the smaller tanks.
