My wife and I just returned from a little 1,500-mile trip from Wisconsin to Missouri, and back.
We tow a Winnebago 1710 “Winnie Drop” behind our 2012 Toyota Tacoma 6-cyl 4 liter with a tow package.
[Yes, I am aware that, while our camper has a fiberglass skin over an aluminum frame, it is not a “molded fiberglass” unit.]
Next year, we plan on traveling later in the Fall
(early October?), which I have concluded is one of the BEST times for empty nesters / retirees to camp.
Consider the following:
• beautiful fall
• kids in school = less tourist travel = less crowding and more opportunities
• more comfortable sleeping, due to less heat and humidity in the camper. You can always use propane
to fire your furnace
if it’s too cool, but there is no such thing as a propane-powered air conditioner
• no need to worry about bringing a generator
if you’re boon docking, because the weather is cool enough for sleeping
