Well folks, we set out in our maiden voyage for the year and in the new Camper today.

Here she is

The tundra with the new airbag system did GREAT! No I wouldn’t take it cross country, but for 25 miles to the local lake, it’s fine.

 

I didn’t have time to stop by the scales and get a weight. Hopefully in the way Home. Should be around 10,500 for the trailer.

 

And here is our view for the weekend

Haven’t camped here before but is looks promising. Big playground for the kids 20 yards away and it’s full hookups which we have never done before. Should be nice for my soon to be 6yr olds bday tomorrow night.

 

Today was the first day we hit 70 for the year so things are looking up.

 

Caleb

What is the length and GW for the camper?

38 feet. Empty weight is 9200. Max weight is 11,500. Im guessing it around 10500 with all of our stuff. Ill know for sure hopefully Sunday on the way home.

 

 

 

Yes G, shes huge. Every time I pull it I think its too big. Then I stay in it and LOVE IT! Honestly just need a bigger truck and I wont mind it at all. But I know that going in. My truck is 10 years old and Im ready for a new one.

 

Here are a few interior pics. We love the space especially in the bedroom

Surprisingly it wasnt hard to get into the spot at the campground. I nailed it first try.

 

 

Also for you camping guys. You need to check out the Anderson levelers!

I have a set of those just not a pair. Also get you a set of the plastic plates that go under the stabilizer feet. They will almost double the surface area of the feet and help with settling.

 

How are you not overloaded with 105 on that truck? What’s the max GVW marked inside the drivers door?

Dang, that's so much bigger and nicer than the trailer the wife and I lived in while in the Army.

 

Good for you. Getaways are important in life.

Never said I wasnt. Payload is what kills me.

 

Max towing is 10,300 for the tundra. So Im close or a little over. But payload is the killer. The airbags make all the difference though.

 

Like I said. No way am I going on a long trip with it. Ill borrow dads 350. But 20 miles to the local lake. Flat ground and 50 mph, it does fine.

 

The tundra has amazing power. And the brakes on the trailer are crazy good. It was just the suspension that was too weak. Hence the bags.

 

Ill be truck shopping come Christmas time.

Nicer than my first house too!!!

 

 

The wind is crazy. We are in a stand of huge pine trees. They are 100-150 feet tall and the tops of them are moving a swear 20-30 feet easy. Kinda spooky hearing them smack each other.
