Hi all. New here and am purchasing my first PU for a small family of 4, with 2 kids 9 and 3.5. I'm going looking at a used RV dealer (while also scouring craigslist, facebook sale groups, etc) hopefully on Saturday to peek around at a few models to best determine what kind of size and interior layout best meets my need. I like the theory of some bigger campers with that front cooler-style storage box, and of course the added interior space for when we need to sit inside with the kids. But I wonder about things like added slide outs, the weight that goes into that, and if it's worth jumping in a little early on a bigger and maybe more expensive model. I don't want to buy one that is just way too small out of the gate and need to upgrade quickly. But I also have kind of a steep angle driveway that I don't know about with a longer base. Right now my plan is to look kind of closely at a few: 2004 Coleman Santa Fe ($2900) 1999 Coleman Utah ($1600) 2004 Fleetwood Yuma ($2500) 2004 Starcraft Centennial 3600 ($2500) Thanks for reading, and happy camping!
