"Beware when the great God lets loose a thinker on this planet." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson US essayist & poet (1803 - 1882)

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Well, since Mike's not going to post anytime soon, I will. He opted to take the time we would have spent at Jimmy's baseball game tonight that got rained out to go for a run instead. How dare he!

So, I'm going to ask for a little help and advice

I went camper shopping today. This weekend I got the go ahead to and buy the family a camper. This basically came after the realization that our Cubmaster and his family rent the exact same camper that we do from the exact same place (they had it last weekend when we went up to hang out for the day). Now Mike can't wrap his brain around sleeping in the exact same spot as someone he knows...so I finally get my camper.

While I started out looking for something used I found out the exact model we've been renting, but in a 2008 version (the fabric colors may be the only thing different) is really not too much more than any of the used campers I've been looking at. This one comes with an awning so the free one I've been using the last few years can be retired, duct tape and all! Here's the floor plan:


Now while at the dealership I also decided to take a peek at what they call the "hybrid style". I came across this little beauty for only a little more per month than the above model.




Isn't it cute? But it gets better, here is the floor plan.


Yes, it has a bathroom (though I'm not in the market for cleaning out a camper toilet so it would be only used in extreme emergencies...and no poopin' in there either EVER!). It also has a stove, an oven, a microwave, A/C, an antennae jack and an AM/FM/CD stereo with outside speakers. What more could I ask for?


Here is the link to some interior pics

There is also the option of going right down the middle with this floor plan in a pop-up style.


I don't have to make a decision right away. All of these models are in-stock and can get to me pretty quick. I think I'll take Mike up there in the next couple of days so he can see them for himself.

So, I know someone out there still reads this blog. I'm looking for some feedback. Please! Help me help Mike make the right decision!

You know what I'm going to say.

Option #2

with the shitter.

well I'm just leaving a comment to let you know that I still read Mike's blog.
I don't have an opinion on the camper though I don't think the one with the toilet is practical if you're never going to use it. I'm assuming you can only use the thing when you've stopped, but if you're stopped, you might as well do your wee wee on the side of the road in some bushes like marathoners do. Just my two cents.

Having to deal with a crapper seems like more work than its worth if you always stay at a park with commodes. However, they also tend to have more room. I'm all for more room in the camper. Also, don't forget to consider where you are going to store it during the unused times.

Lisa, I'm all for #2. It was the best thing we ever bought when we bought the motor home, with a place to "call your own"!! and it's not THAT bad to dump and with kids...it's been fabulous!

I am an experienced camper...went from a tent to a 42 foot RV with slide outs, etc.
I say #2. For one...pop ups are nice, but the canvas wears easily. Hard sided campers hold up better. Plus, many times with pop ups, the extenders will fail.
Two, the bathroom is a lifesaver. If you stop at a place that has sewer hookups, you can crap and pee..and it's easy to clean the toilets! And hard sided campers hold in heat better, wasting less propane.

If you choose a pop up, the extendable dinette area makes the pop up really roomy...it seems to have alot of floor space.
