This is my tow vehicle for my Bigfoot 25. I found and delivered this Scamp 13 to my inlaws last November.

Hi Steve
I've got a 6'8" Northern Lite molded fiberglass camper that I carry with my Toyota Tacoma. I've had it loaded up quite a bit and have had no trouble with it being top heavy. I'm sure if you had one of the super large campers top heavy would be a problem.

Cheers
Greg

I currently have a 16' Scamp which I enjoy immensely. The problem I am having is that I bought a drift boat that I enjoy as much. I have been thinking of selling the Scamp and buying a camper since that would solve the camping and boating issue. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what brand of campers don't leak and are a good buy?

Thanks;
Steve
On the practical side, if you need to go to town to get milk or beer, you have to pack away everything in the camper, and leave the rest of your family without a base, unless they want to go with you.
I once loaded the canoe on the tent trailer and realized when I got to the campsite that I had to move it to the truck to open the unit and to get the canoe down to the put-in.

Is this what you call a backup plan? I believe in redundancy, but this goes too far.

The [b]Panther Campers are great for lightweight camping. I have actually camped in one in April on our annual fishing trip. The Sierra model is simplistic, but I do know they let you customize the interior abit, and they are stretching the nose out for a larger cabover. I was most impressed with the craftsmanship and the ... warm, comfortable feel of the inside.
