It's official, I'm travel trailerless.
Sold the Safari on eBay last week and it was picked up today. Sad day.
But time to move on! We need room for our family of five. Typically someone is using the laptop, other kids are watching TV while mom and I are making dinner. We also want a full time bed, seperate shower (not a wet bath), and dinette. So these are the space and layout concerns we need to address.
What we disliked about the '71 was the lack of space for stuff. We constantly had to move this to get into that. Or something had to go back into the tow vehicle because there was no room, etc.... My kids bring, DVDs, iPod's, toys, CD players, etc... all kinds of kid stuff.
I think I narrowed it down to a late 90's model to early 2000's six sleeper. I'm thinking of a 25' Safari SS, or a 30' Classic. A 28' - 30' Safari would be ideal but I have not seen them in the classifieds.
I personally like the look of the Safari interriors over the classics. The classic just feels heavy when standing in it. Makes me a little dizzy
If you have any leads, send them my way!
Help me think this out.
25' Safari SS Pros
more modern design
Get to keep the name Safari Tim
not a lot of space
might be moving junk around again like in the '71 Safari
nice layout for family of 5 (we sit around the TV at night watching DVDs)
quality cabinets and countertops
lots of storage
old fashion interrior (IMHO)
We typically tow to the CA coast, Yosemite, and Lake Tahoe from the bay area. The hill up to Tahoe has me concerned about the 30' Classic.
We will probably start traveling out of state with the new trailer.
Please give me your feedback or obervations. Keep in mind my tow vehicle listed below.
