Thank you! Yes just picked up camper last Friday, going on first camping trip this Friday, I cant wait.

Truck, no camper (plus me + full tank diesel, with tailgate) weighs 9,520lbs (pre truck camper frame mounted tiedowns and pre airbags). This is 5,340lbs on front axle and 4,180lbs rear axle. The truck weight with camper (with tie downs, no tailgate, with airbags, with 2 RV batteries, full propane, with 3/4 tank of water (no clothes or food) is 14,580lbs. This arrangement is 4,940lbs on front axle and 9,640lbs rear axle. I estimate ready to camp with wife and son, weight to be 15,147lbs and with boat tongue weight to be at 15,600lbs GVW total. I expect rear axel to be at 10,200lbs (at our heaviest carrying boat) which is slightly over the 9,900lbs RAWR. No boat we will be just slightly under the RAWR 9,750lbs. FYI boat and boat trailer weight is approx 4,500lbs ready for lake. Now to answer your question, per the numbers above, this means the camper ready to camp full water, clothes, food, etc. is approx. 5,250lbs.

That is a fair sized boat. Would the tongue weight be in the car trailer range?

It's amazing how much these slide ins have grown in size over the years! All camper types have sure but my lord.Amazing.I can spend upwards of a quarter of the year in a tent,comfortably,like I did last winter.Sure it's nice to come home too lol but I just think things are getting a bit carried away with these camper sizes too.

I sure do.I'm all smiles right now remembering back.It's good for the soul to get back to basics from time to time.
I think wherever your sleeping for the night is far more dependent on your gear and supplies than the form of shelter your in to be comfortable.For cold camping,you must,must,must start with a great foundation.An insulated air mattress,topped with layers of thick sleeping bags and you can rest so comfortable it's crazy.
Awesome camper though! I'm glad your taking your boy out to the real world.This is how I was brought up too.With a slide in.

You'd be surprised.

Amazon Amazon

I was in here on one,snug as a bug in a rug.



R-value of 11.4 Tent or camper,this sucker is awesome! I've been between here in Maine and California with it twice now.I blow it up nice and firm and sleep better than I do at home.
Blow it up firm,lay on it,then to reduce your "sleep number" simply reach up,turn the valve to find your level of firmness and it's morning before you know what happened.
This sounds like an ad or something for thermorest lol! I just love this thing.It really took my camping comfort to the next level.Even though it's heavy and best suited for car camping and of course campers too,I don't even care.I do take it in to camp in the woods with my back country pack too.I've been spoiled and don't go without it anywhere anymore.To me anyway,it's weight to comfort level is worth packing in.

How do I switch my view of this thread so it shows one page at a time?
It loads the entire thread into one page now and is pretty slow.

Thank you! Now I can read this thread.
I have no idea how that happened but when I logged in one day that was the way it was.
