No question about it, I'd look for a used Bigfoot 17.5' trailer. Great build quality and easy to tow. They're being built again!

I have some of the greatest friends in the world.

Ms. Sugarfoot from AIR is going to drive out to take a look at 3 trailers for me next Wednesday that are about 90 minutes from her. She says that it would do her good to get outm but regardless it is really helping me out.

Don't know what will happen with them, but we will find out.

Steve

Steve,

Tell Sugarfoot hello. We've missed her presence and her bread pudding.

Our backup is now our primary. A 73 Avion Travelcader.

Our Bambi II is kind of our back up (Well, it was the third camper purchased) as we are going strong in a '61 Scotty and also have an old Chevy camper van.

We are looking forward to getting the Bambi in shape for camping (1-2 year restoration ahead of us) as the Scotty is tiny- 13'- and does not have a firdge or full bath. We have done well for 14 years with coolers, Coleman stoves, and porta-potties. Scottys (the small ones) are just tents on wheels. Their motto: "Travel right. Travel light. The Scotty way." I have changed it a bit to: "Built from scraps. Built like crap. The Scotty way." I love all Scottys, but they were cheaply constructed! You cannot beat the swoosh wheel well trim, though. Too cool!

We got a big surprise when we stumbled upon the 1964 AS for sale- and it all worked out. Then we got the surprise of our life this past Summer when my wife of 12 years got pregnant. Baby is due in 5 weeks! We can make it this Summer in the small Scotty- but future traveling tours will require more space. The Bambi II ought to fit the bill to a tee!

Ben

Our backup is utility trailer, a wall tent and stove from these folks. Cots and a camp kitchen we setup 30+ years ago round out the system.

Tents

With this combo behind the Jeep we can get into some pretty remote places.

We started out, and still have a 13' Uhaul TT. I use it mainly for hunting trips and the rare over night trips with out the wife & dogs. It is very lightwieght, and cannot even tell it is behind the tv. It takes me longer to pack clothes and the cooler, than it does to hook up.

Steve good luck on your search

I've been looking for over a year now since i sold My 29ft er. Man do i regret that sale, I usually don't get to attached to things but there was something about that A/S it need a little work but man i liked working on it even if i did complain about it.

I've got a 09 Nissan frontier now, So it narrows it down on size on what to get. I would love a newer 23' international with a queen bed but its a bit to big, so 19ft er about as big as i think i can safely go but it will be a few year's before the price's get in to my purchase range. Unless i find a nice vintage unit that i feel I'm up to restoring.

But i think a earlier post said something about renting one? I don't know how much camping you guys do but i might work in your favor to rent something a few times and save the bulk of your money towards your new or new to you A/S purchase?

Just a thought

Steve,
Our back up is a '54 Empire (canned ham) it was made in El Monte, Cal. It some how made it to Michigans UP where it sat until a couple of years ago. A summer storm and a large maple tree had their way with it. The owner suggested that if I didn't take it home, it would go to the dump.
The inside is all curved birch, with stove, ice box, front dinette and rear bed. We love to travel with it! We have put over 15K miles on it.
It was this trailer that lead us to our AS. It's first trip is coming up soon.
Tim
