^^^ I purchased my first one in 1996, still own it and was the first "NEW" big purchase I had ever made. It's a 1996 Silverado 11 foot camper slid into a 1997 1 ton 4x4 extra cab dually Chevrolet. It mostly see's trips to the coast being driven by my wife on her " girl" trips and serves as the base camp for them to cook from. It's former tour of duty was a 30,000 mile a year road trip machine hauling a 28 foot enclosed trailer and 3 watercraft that I raced semi-professionally from Canada to SanDiego and trips to World Finals at Lake Havasu
The second is our 1960 Avion full polished and mostly all original 20 foot trailer. A boondockers paradise. Air pressure water system, 4x6 1/4 wall boxed frame construction for off road camping, 1" steel water pipes and electrical
panels, fuses etc you would find in your house, all factory. They were built like tanks, but really beautifull. They said back in the 60's that the Airstreams were the Cadillac's of trailers and the Avion's were the Rolls Royce's.
The 4th and maybe 5th are 1987 Toyota turned rock crawler that has the rear end compartmented for extended camping and is like a mini RV that will clime a cliff. heated leather seats , A/C, power everything, 12v ports, on-board heated shower, on-board air, on-board water tank etc and was great to escape
in for me and the dog. Now that I am married, we purchased a roof top tent www.rooftoptents.com
and now keep the pooches down below while we enjoy the balcony views from above.
And last but not least, the 80 Burro
. Recently remodeled, upgraded and our newest escape
We LOVE to camp. It's now more like "we love to be outside cooking, walking, bicycling, skateboarding etc and away from traffic, noise and just breathe some fresh air every chance we get". last year we camped 29 weekends and 19 of them consecutively. The roof top tent attaches to multiple vehicles depending on what our weekend holds for us. The rock crawler, the 1950 suburban for the distant car shows/cruises or one of the newer rigs for a quicker ( 70 mph vs. 55 mph ) trip to the sunshine. We live in the rainy NW but escape
to the high desert or northern Calif. for a blast of vitamin D when needed after a long work week.
