New To Us Rig! Back in the RV Saddle!
So after a catastrophic engine failure last Labor Day in our vintage Class C, DW and I had decided earlier in the summer it was time to look into another RV. We were looking for a bunkhouse floor plan (3 Kids), and something we could pull with my F150. If any of you have looked into that market, it has exploded since March. We got to figuring what we would spend on a 10-15 year old bumper pull that would not be much fun to pull with my current pickup, and were not pleased. I have an uncle who had been talking about selling his pickup and fifth wheel in the past, so we got in touch and were able to make a deal to purchase his entire rig. By the time we figure what it was going to cost for a half ton towable plus what we get out of selling my pickup, we are not out but a couple thousand dollars more, and we have a major upgrade in pickup and trailer! Now another point to this, I really have a justified need for a 3/4 pickup, so it wasn't a problem buying one to use all the time. So, enough blabber, details and pics!
The pickup is a 2002 F250, 7.3 diesel. It had 96K miles on it when it arrived at our place.
The trailer is a 2005 Ameri-Camp 300BHS. They bought it brand new. It has full perimeter aluminum framing, a bunk ROOM (as in completely closes into its own room) in the back, and it fits our needs perfectly! We are super excited and ready to start adventuring in our new rig this fall!
