Considering Full timing in new rig

While we have been happy living in our 16' Scamp for 4+ months every year to escape Mich. winter, we have been a bit cramped.

Just saw this and might consider moving to a bit larger rig. It has the side dinette as well!



Well... my wife thinks our Scamp is a bit more snug, so we will stick with what we have.

Cheers

We actually saw a couple traveling in a rig like that on Route 101 in California. Gas mileage was great, pace was slow.

Not much horsepower... two, maybe? Wonder how many mpb's you'll get (miles per bale)? Emissions could be a problem.

There was plenty of grazing along the sides of the route 101. His rig also had an internal wood stove. Emissions were low, proportional to the horse power. He had no paranoia about being passed on hills or for that matter on the flat. He did not have a convertible but rather a hardtop like the hollowed out redwood tree RV.

Slower pace = less sway
And it's a tandem axle
Another bonus

Can anyone see the date code on those tires?
Also a safe bet they use are using a composting toilet.

Canvas pop-ups like that are known to be drafty & leak.

The tires are steel "belted". But it is a nuisance having to carry two different size spares.
