That's great Rick. I hope you get to enjoy it for many years to come. The 30" will feel like a mansion after a truck camper. We tried a truck camper many years ago and it was so cramped I had trouble crossing my legs to tie my shoes. It went back to the dealer.

We found the bed in our trailer to be uncomfortable. We were not alone (in finding the bed uncomfortable, not in the bed itself).

We bought a foam topper and that made the bed much better to sleep in. Try out the bed (take a nap or whatever) and see if you want to get a topper before you leave. Natural latex ones are better for you (chemicals), but cost a lot more.

One of the first things I did after getting the trailer and trying out the bed was head down to Costco and buy a 3" memory foam topper. Based on advise from this forum I also bought an electric carving knife to trim the topper to fit. That worked great and I now use the knife for carving turkeys and roasts so it was a double bonus! A couple years ago my wife said no more 2 week trips in the camper! The nice thing about a camper is that I can tow my drift boat behind it. We spent many years all over Idaho and Montana fly fishing those great rivers! I now have a two person pontoon boat that deflates and fits under the truck canopy some we can still fish with the AS. I still have the camper for guys trips to hunt and fish!

It's a beautiful drive up 395 with the snow covered mountains. Well worth the drive. Check 395 highway conditions for snow, and observe the speed limit in the small towns. If you like to snow ski, Mammoth Mountain is worth a stop. 395 is clear all the way... today.

I've done 395 from Bend to Reno, but not beyond that-I will check it out! Rick
