I'm 71 and lost my bride this summer. Just switched from a 36 foot fifth to the 28 Crossroads so I could take my HD Dynaglide with me on a Rampage mc lift in the truck.

1999 18' European (danish) Windmill 345 travel trailer dry weight is 2.5k empty, 4k loaded.

As they do not sell these units in north america, quick run down:

Sleeps 4 with convertable bed & bunks for the girls. dometic 3 way, fridge, thetford cassette toilet with the removalable dukie box, LP heater, & stove. I added the following: 2kw inverter/charger, 4 - 100 a/h batteries and a yamaha 2800 watt inverter genset & a japanese made splitpack a/c

2001 F150 Lariet Supercrew 4 x 4. 33 x 10.5 tires on stock rims, swapped the front and rear ring and pinion from the stock 3.55 to 4.10's added a ARB air locker for the the front diff, lifted 5", all the usual a/v stuff to keep the terrorists busy in the backseat. with a front bumper carry rack for the genset.

I thought it was funny to see a 0 - 18 range (sorry, I'm a little OCD), then I realized I started towing back in 74 when I was five. I had a weebles popup camper. Pretty certain I was towing overweight then too. Four weebles, plus picinic set on the roof of the car, and the boat on the camper roof. It is a wonder I didn't wreck into the weebles treehouse.

Sorry made a mistake while guestimating between kilos and Lbs. dry is 1000 kgs (2200 lbs) loaded with all my junk and checked at a local scrap yard scales 1500kg (3300 lbs) but I stand by my estimate of the cats, I think they are honey badgers i disguise

I feeling like a big time youngin! I'm 23 and bought my 2006 Fleetwood Pioneer 270FQS almost a year ago. I was towing with a 1994 3/4 ton silverado but recently upgraded a 2010 silverado CC 5.3L with the tow package.

The trailer set up for camping


Cant wait for spring to come around to go camping!

If you fell like a youngin that because you are one. 23. Wow. Oh how I wish I was 23 again and was in your shoes. I was tenting when I was 23.
Have fun but, not too much fun. Did that when I was 23 but, I don't want to talk about it.

72 and feel good. Not touching DW s years. Just went from 35' 5 er Cardinal to 30' Holiday Rambler Savoy
TT . Hope we like it, least no steps up to bath or bed. Tow with 02 F 250 CC 7.3 diesel. Son 20 yr ford service director keeps telling me to keep it as it is best or most reliable diesel ford has had for years. Everyone has their opinion i guess. Looking out at snow and ice here in central Ia, looking forward to camping weather so we can try out the Savoy. Happy camping. Jack & Judy
