We traded out "hybrid" in on a new leftover 2008 Pilgrim International Cirrus 21 CRB. We were going to go with big fifth wheel since my Titan will tow 10,000 lbs without a problem but we went with convenience of a smaller trailer for ease of towing and gas mileage. We travel quite a bit and mostly just weekends. When we get to the site we are usually out sightseeing etc all day and do not spend much time in the trailer. This was perfect for us. Big Queen bed with room around and wardrobes and a very large bathroom. No room for kids which was right up our alley. Time for the 21 yr old to "go it alone". LOL. The Pilgrim is great with its "green" construction. All bonded aluminum frame and laminated panels. Love the two way hot water heater . gas/electric. Use the camps electric to heat water instead of our gas. Was the perfect set up to take us to retirement in 5-6 years when we get "the bus".

Congrats on the upgrades on the Jayco. Sounds like a lotta hard work, and a lotta fun. Enjoy.

Pulling a '04 36BBHS Cedar Creek fiver w/ a 06 F350 King Ranch Crew Cab Dually. The trailer has 2 slide-outs and 2 bedrooms. Scaling in at 11476k. Combined I'm at about 20,567. We've been Rving since 2001. I have no plans anytime soon to trade up. Love what I have, hard to find anything worth trading up for that it would be worth sinking the money into in this economy.

Speaking of Bighorn's.....got a 08' 3100RL we picked up back in Nov 07.
Of course it weighs twice as much as the truck so I just recently added a Pacbrake exhaust brake to the tow rig.

2008 Bighorn 3100RL, GP-RV110 110 watt solar panel, 2000 watt Triplite inverter, 4 batteries (2 8D's and 2 GP 27's), Olympian catalytic heater.

We just completed the purchase of our 2009 Dodge 3500 4x4 dually to pull our new to us future home. It is a 2004 Newmar Mountain Aire 38rlpk, and we plan to go fulltiming next year after the home is sold. This is our 3rd rv, but it has proved to be the best so far. Looking forward to meeting ya'll on the road.
