My name is Eric, from San Diego, love the outdoors, fishing, hiking, camping, backpacking, mountain biking, snowboarding, cross country skiing, if its out of the house I am in. The wife Carolyn from down under and our son Raiden (just 2) are looking to make getting out of town just a little bit easier to get underway, and when we get there. I haven't bought one yet, but upon leaving the Eastern Sierras last weekend after one night of our toddler yelling in the tent from 4am on my wife kept googling camping trailers the whole way home, message received! We were supposed to go backpacking for two nights with him but after the one night we fell back to a hotel nearby and then drove home the next morning. A little research has let me know that my Outback is limited to medium or less sized pop up trailers, but honestly I love the look of them as they seem to let so much light in with all the curtains down. Since I love to camp it seems a good alternative, especially considering how much more car packing, campsite unpacking and setting up, re-packing, and car unloading when you get home there is with a young one in tow. So My car is limited to 2700 lbs. fully loaded, and I do have a tow package, but I think the critical value will be the unibody construction only permits a 200 lb. hitch weight so with trying to keep 10% of the weight on the hitch like I've read, I'll be looking for a 2,000 lb. loaded, 200 lb. on the hitch max pop up, still a lot of options out there. I'm partial to the look of the Jayco and the Clipper Sport type set ups, but anything really that can be towed by my wagon and fit in my garage (18 feet long) is on the table. I realize that most of these are made by only 2 companies now. I am going to look at a 2017 Jayco Sport on Tuesday, the pics make it look like its still in very good condition, has the normal kitchen set up with a stove and fridge and sink, a dinette and couch with a Queen and full berth which is plenty for us. It has a heater, no AC but its pre wired I believe if I decide we need, but I don't really envision much desert camping so maybe not needed. Also no bathroom but not really sure I'd use it, a solar shower outside is more than I usually have camping. Not sure if it has trailer brakes or not, I'll probably install them if it doesn't as I think the max recommended without is 1,000 lbs. with the outback. Oh I'll need to swap to a 7 pin adapter on the tow package to run the brakes, and I'll also need to install an aftermarket transmission cooler as the load will fry the transmission going up summer mountain hills out west. All fun stuff I look forward to! I may have a few (okay more than a few) questions on set up and mods to this or whatever camper I end up with.
