I'm posting this here because I had a dream that I had done so, and my VR buddies here have never steered me wrong. Grandfatherbear and I are talking about semi retiring, and now that he has a bionic hip he is open to thoughts of camping again. We are discussing the possibility of a lengthy trip (North country, including Canada and Alaska) before moving to our cabin on the lake - (ETA 2006ish) I am a ultra lightweight fanatic who doesn't mind roughing it, but he does need to be comfortable in his sleeping and sitting arrangements. We don't have a van, our 2 cars are compact and lightweight. I saw a motorcycle pulling a small camper once at a campground, so I have done some internet research and will post the links. I would appreciate your well thought out comments, and/or actual experiences. 1. www.trailmasterinc.com - The Aspen compact. For an actual video of the 7 second set up, see the video at www.leesurelite.com (which is similar but apparently doesn't have a sewn in floor) 2. www.cozycruiser.com ; the trailer, not the truckbed. There are smaller models at Quicksilver, but they are verging on claustrophobia for me. We are of course on a budget, but with a long lead time we can look for gently used etc. Also, on 12V appliances, can I haul an ordinary 12 V battery and recharge at campsites with electric, or must I use the car battery via the cig lighter and how do I keep from running the charge down too low??. Thanks for any comments.
