I'm back after some hiatus. We didnt and I certainly dont plan on getting the HILO 15T. Too much for a camper that heavy and I was overly concerned about my truck. So that is out unless I'm shot an outrageously lower price (more $ for maint. on my truck
So, I'm back to the Scamp/Casita decision fiasco. The problem? Wife
. (I have to be careful as I know she will come along and read this.) BUT, I cant be comfy pulling an over-sized rig for my "4-banger" and she has to be comfortable with the 13-16'ers. She also doesnt like "carpet on the walls". What do yall say about that? Is it a problem in the long run- glue showing through, getting dirty, turning loose?
Well I ran some conversions on Ron's figures. 100km = 62mph 90km = 56mph 80km = 50mph (Win 7 has this conversion in their "calculator"...very nice!)
I'm going to look at a used 16' Scamp
with no A/C. 2004 model. It's layout #6 (Dinette). Do yall have any idea as to what it would be worth? I'm hoping to get to test pull it....FINALLY!! Test-pulling an "egg"!!
I'll stop here for now. I love the super posts on this forum.
Darral from Tennessee still driving the Nissan 4 banger!
OK to drive at 100km/hr, but more comfortable at 90Km/hr. Always in 4th gear (avoided the over drive as per instruction manual). On big hills would drop to 80km/hr and maybe 3rd gear.
It was definitely a more tedious way to drive, but was tolerable.
Now I tow the same trailer with a Jeep Patriot, which is rated at 2000lbs. It's very comfortable at 100km/hr in all situations.
