Impatient camper lover cheating on her camper

Some of you might know me from the yellowstone My Totally awesome older camper

I'm trying to get the title for but I've grown impatient and found this:older truck camper
I know nothing about Truck campers. I have a 1991 ford ranger manual its a 4 cyl I don't even know if my truck can handle something like this
Do these need titles? you guys know I'm all about free talk me out of this! how hard can these really be to fix up?


I found this and got excited as well but no stinking title
17 foot camper


Oh and my dream Camper: 1972 Yellowstone Vintage Camper

And this which apparently this guy has been trying to get rid of this since the summer 1970 Streamline classic aluminum camper


A discussion on why a 22 year old really doesn't need a vintage camper might need to be in effect.

You need to do a LOT of research on your truck capacity. I don't think it can handle much more than an aluminum boat.
Here is a link that might help you understand what you can (or cannot) tow.

Good Luck finding something that will work with a 4 cylinder Ranger.

Ha that website, in summary, basically said HA you can't tow anything
the newer rangers have like a 1,260tow capacity that little yellowstone is 1,800 from my research

Honestly, a truck isn't the problem I'd just like to avoid borrowing my dads truck! ha.

some states require titles for campers, some do not.
and unless you 4 cyl is a really big one, prolly be ok for short local trips, but going anywhere too far it would prolly run out of power pretty fast.. and get really poor mpg..
I hope this helps.

The Strealine trailers were very well built and expensive in their time. That one looks pretty tired and has been sitting in weeds. My concern on this one would be rust on the frame in the under belly and where the front A-frame attaches.

Normaly, thay did not leak at the roof, but a through check for leaks would be necessary.

Check out Tom Patterson,s site fro the Streamline and Silver Streak trailers.

Thats the first thing I ask with any of them hows the floors inside and out and hows the roof?
I'm not getting anything that needs more work then my yellowstone. I'd rather wait for a title then pay for a camper that needs more work then the yellowstone
