Bigger may not always be better but I can tell you I much prefer the bathroom in our C to the bushes or the long trek to the shower house in the middle of the night. It's also a lot nicer on a rainy day. I canoed a lot, hiked some, and had a camper shell with a kitchen built into the passenger side when the kids and I were younger. Now as an old guy with joint replacements I really like both my comfort and the easier setup and use of a real walk in camper. ;-)

It was something I did until my mid 20’s more to do with economics than preference. I have not felt limited towing a trailer or carrying a truck camper to where we could go. Our wants and expectations have changed over the years but our camping continues increase even though I still work full time.

We did it for awhile, but at 60 I wanted more comfort...hence the TC. We still can go pretty much anywhere we want even with it.

The Wilderness

I guess the main attraction for us is access to the wilderness, we spent a lot of time in places you simply canít go unless you have high clearance and 4 wheel drive. We enjoy the solitude and beauty of North Americaís last wild, untouched places.

There wouldn't be any problem with a 4x4 dually and a TC going there....

If you're going to get REALLY crazy off-road, make it a short one.

We have a travel trailer we camp across the nation with and tow with a Tundra.

Like the shell Vermontbuild has with rear vertical door.

Also have a 2003 Tacoma 2.4L with Leer shell I've camped in with air mattress and towed the motorcycle on an open trailer. Use this rig for NC mountain camping in the summer when it's hot in the lower elevations.

The pickup bed gate will leak during heavy rain. Could use a canopy covering the rear gate for the motorcycle, too.
