We are camping in it right now in Idaho. It is plenty big enough for the two of us, and we have taken our grandson with us as well and it works great.
    I looked up the Parkliner and it looks great--maybe I'll keep my eyes open for a used one. The cool campers are hard to find, I'm learning.

Now that we're thinking of traveling up to half the year, we're thinking a travel trailer pulled by a pickup or SUV would make better sense. There's a very good chance we'll pull the trigger on that transition this winter.
    OK, we got a little impatient and went ahead with the replacement sooner than we'd originally planned. We'll head out next week to points presently unknown to work the kinks out of our new setup. This is a 25ft Winnebago travel trailer which we'll tow with a Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

    (I just backed it into the driveway for the first time, this whole backing up thing is gonna take some practice.)

    I think that would be considered 'Decorating' which falls well outside my purview, or so I've been told. When I read that to my wife she gave me that look, the one that says "It's not the Mystery Machine, you're not Scooby Doo and I'm not Velma".

    With backing up, you will get up to speed in no time. Cool set-up so go out and enjoy.

    My wife was adamant that they had to match, I was adamant that the truck had to have the EcoDiesel engine. When we began our search, the only white EcoDiesel we could find was 100 miles away. At least last Friday was a nice day for a road trip.
