Started around 1973 in a converted 1965 Chevy Suburban 4x4 with the wife & two little guys (real little). In 1977 we moved up to a 71 Chevy pick up with a 1971, 11' wolverine slide on camper. thought we were in high cotton! Drove that rig till 1997 when we moved into a 1997 24' motor home. For the last 2 years the wife & I are alone in a 34' Montana 5th wheel, we think we are in a palace.
2010 34' Montana 5 wheel, pulled by 2009 dodge 3500 diesel, 4x4.(gone), 2016 Ford F-350, SRW, 4X4, Diesel.

I am towing a 35' 5th wheel with 2 slides. It is a 2005 Jayco Eagle being pulled by a 2001 Ford F250 Diesel crew cab with 185K miles on it. Pulls like a champ!

we got into camping 2 yrs ago. Our first 5th wheel was a 27ft larado, Nice unit but we wanted more room.The following year (FEB) the wife fell in love with a 34wck silverback by forest river. After 2 weeks in Florida, I wasn't 100% happy with the Silverback. When we got home, we traded it in for our 36re cedar creek. NOW we are 100% happy to say the least!!!The family just shakes their heads "3 units in about 1 year". We pull our unit with a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 diesel.WE ARE HAPPY CAMPERS!

We got our first TT this past summer a 2003 skyline 303C 31ft. We love it. Camped in tents for years, so this was a big step up for us. Did have to go buy a new truck to tow it with, did not realize how heavy it was. So we have a 2008 Chevy 2500 HD to tow with. Can not wait to head out this year!

Puma Fulltime

We bought an '08 Puma 29RKS last year and love it. We looked at a 5'er with the exact same floorplan and layout.......there was $15K difference in the price ! So, we went with the TT / straight pull. We live in it fulltime, travel about 7 or 8 months of the year; heading to Ohi in the spring and then down to Myrtle Beach. Towing with a 2004 Dodge 1500 with a hemi. Many warned us about "not having the bigger truck"; however we pull with "zero" problems. Last year we even pulled up out of Palo Duro Canyon (10 degree incline ) with no trouble. This is a truck with 126K reading on the odo. All in all, we're having a ball...........a new 3500 and a large 5'er sounds nice, but what we have is paid for, so that translates to more road trips.....happy camping ya'll. When not traveling, we stay on the river for less than $300.00 a month; and that includes utilities !

We're towing a 28' North Trail w/one slide. We tow with a 1500 Dodge Savannah. It's the perfect size for 2 people and three cats.
