Towing a Bighorn

It's a 2009 3670RL model - 38'. Just returned to Colorado from Alaska and the Bighorn was flawless.

Off to Alaska

Back about 1986 of so I started towing an Apache popup.. This was an old trailer that had seen better days but which still served me for many years.. Then I moved up to a Scamp 13' hard sided trailer (I call it a little poly-styrene bubble).. I last towed it with a 1992 Lumina APV.

I now tow a 1992 Lumina APV
Home is where I park it!

Thumbs up

We started out with an older model Cossair 26' and then we found a 99 Prowler M-24Z 26' Queen & Bunks. We now have a 2009 Jayco Flight G2 31 BHDS we really like it. I stay in it full time working construction out of town.

IN the Mid-1970's I had a 16 foot hard sided trailer (no longer remember the brand) that I took from central Kansas to central Colorado & back with 5 people with no problems behind a Chevy Silverado and LOVED the trip, and forever since wanted to do it again.
Fast forward to 2008 when I bought a Gulfstream Amerilite 24 foot and Dodge Ram 2500. I think if I were to full time I would have to get a slightly bigger rig but this one is great for extended weekend trips, and once I retire I plan to take a few longer trips. Half the fun is in the planning you know?

We bought an 83 Vanguard 17' fiver just for grins last summer and thoroughly enjoy the freedom it gives us. Went small because of the truck we already had, a 4.0 Ranger, but it is not up to the task. Now busy looking for a truck suitable for the 25' we want for our retirement Come on spring.

Roughin It !

Started out with a tent, then bought our first 5th wheel a 24.5' Timberlodge with no slides. Everything was good until the wife myself and two small dogs spent a whole month in it on Vancouver island. After about 3 weeks in it we were getting on each others last nerves bumping into each other tring to go from one end to the other and tripping over the dogs. Anyway last spring I traded it in for a 36' River Canyon with 3 large slides and a king size bed. We LOVE IT ! It travels better on the road, there is more storage in it than I will ever need. Nice big bathroom, lots of room in the kitchen area. And if the wife gets mad at me theres lots of room in the lighted / carpeted storage area in the front compartment, theres even a pluggin for TV
