Side note: How best can I go about practicing parking the camper in a camping slot. I live in a cul de sac with a very short driveway so backing into my driveway isn't an option. Don't want to turn into the park laughing stock my first trip. My plan is to have a camper by...

Definitly not getting a fifth wheel this go round. Not instalilng the 5th wheel hitch in my bed until I know for sure camping will be done often. Thats why I am looking for a good smaller used camper jsut for starters.
| Outdoor Board|| re: Purchasing A Camper - ThatsAFactJack on 7/21/14 at 3:08 pm|
That helps. I was looking at mostly 24-28 footers because I only really need room for 5. And being I have never pulled a camper I didn't want long becaause I dont want any backing up stories at my expense. I really like the PUMAs and am leaning toward those.
| Outdoor Board|| re: Purchasing A Camper - ThatsAFactJack on 7/21/14 at 2:46 pm|
I have the 8.0 1500 HD.
How do you determine the loaded weight? Is it just a guestimate on top of the camper weight?
| Outdoor Board|| re: Purchasing A Camper - ThatsAFactJack on 7/21/14 at 2:20 pm|
I really like the Pumas I have seen online so far. Again, not really wanting to buy new. Id rather get something 3-5 yrs old and pay cash for now.

I throw my quarters in one empty baby formula can and all other change in another empty can. When they are full I go to my bank, HOME BANK, and they count it on the spot and deposit the money the same day. All within 5-10 minutes of my time. A full 24oz baby formula can holds about $300 in quarte...
