    Re: Camper Van Suggestions in 2021

    We owned a top of the line Leisure Travel Serenity. Vaughn you saw the rig, it was beautiful. It literally spent more time in the shop than on the road. Frustrating as hell and it was brand new! Had to sue the company via the lemon law. Lost a lot of money and learned a valuable lesson. Now I'm building out my Toyota Sienna. I'm a woodworker and it will be built better than the van I bought and a hell of a lot cheaper and more reliable. Plus my wife and I are not big people so it will work for us. It took a while to find the right layout and when it is done it will be just what I need for the cameras and have plenty of comforts for my wife.

    Trailers are an option, if the tow vehicle breaks, stay in the trailer, get the TRAILER towed somewhere good for the duration

    Many are making custom heavy duty off road versions, small and light

    This is just the first one i found today https://www.trailerlife.com/rv-gear/...tiny-trailers/

    My wife's idea of a camper is a king-size bed at a Marriot.

    We’ve had this truck camper and truck since 2005. We’ve had very few maintenance issues on either and we’ve been all over the country and to Canada. Comfortable in winter cold and summer heat.

    We owned a Casita Enterprises fiberglass 17-ft Spirit Deluxe from 2003 to 2019. About 2200 lb dry. Initially towed with our Toyota Siena. Later, towed with the Toyota Sequoia. Very few maintenance matters: re-packing wheel bearings; broken PVC drainpipes due to flying gravel on Alaskan Roads. 11,000 trip to Alaska; several 4,000 mile trips to fishing locations. Three 5,000 trips MI-CA-MI. Easy to tow; only as wide as the tow vehicle. Sometimes I forgot it was behind me. Did I say easy to tow?? With a changing bag I emptied holders and re-loaded. Never did any developing in the Casita.

    If you find a pleasant place, you just set up for as many nights as you want and uncouple. Then explore!

    I do NOT recommend going over the Nascimiento Road to the Big Sur Coast towing the Casita! But that's another story.

    Jim -- have a pop top put on your van!

    Below is my kind of transportation -- except I have had recent trouble with my suspension and frame recently. A bad knee for 6 weeks followed by my back going out. Fortunately the bike is good for both of them (once the knee rested up) and I am now ready to hit the road again. And I can squeeze the bike in the van.

    Some TD are very nice, beware of any used trailer

    These look nice if you wait a year or 2 https://timberleaftrailers.com/

    Read this https://wholepeople.com/best-teardrop-trailers-brands/

    There are so many new ones being made right now, I can't keep up

    a lot of people make their own here is where to look at that http://www.tnttt.com/

    I prefer to cook outside with no WC, the more crap built in the crazier they get

    Get a heavy duty new one with torsion bar suspension and 15" tires
