Looking to buy an RV

I am at the point in my life where I want to do some camping and relax...

I want to buy a New RV , I want about a 16footer but I want it to be super light.

Looked at scamps and Catista on the internet and really like those and would like to see similar brands to these.

I have a V6 Explorer with the towing package , I am very experienced obviously at pulling very heavy trailers but thats not what I want... Just want something light in the 10k-15k range I can pay cash for.

I've had luck with Hi-lo's. They're easy to tow, make maximum use of space and are fairly comfortable.
Look into them at least, you may be surprised. My parents had a 16 footer and it was really nice. They traded it in on a 30 footer and have towed it at least 100,000 miles without a problem.

Lance makes a really nice camper, the 1575, that is really light and seems to be high quality. Saw one at a campground on our vacation last week and was really impressed. It's got a slide and good layout and is about 16ft long. It's also a four-season trailer with insulated tanks. The downside is it's about the most expensive trailer I've seen for its size. You could maybe get a used one for $15k.

The America-lite trailers are nice too and more in your price range. I like them a lot and have been thinking about getting one as I have a hard time justifying the price for the Lance.

Good luck, and let us know what you end up getting.

I really think you'd get maximum use out of your $$$ with one of them. I know the company was recently sold or went bankrupt or something but you should be able to get parts, (the only thing my dad's needed to buy is a new awning and one hub, I think the parts are fairly universal except for the hydraulic lift system).
Let me know if you have any questions.

That is a ****ing steal right there.
Like I said, they are so much easier to tow over a big ass camper and you get way more amenities for the buck.

This is the model my parents have. You may be able to find one this size in your price range. Keep in mind, they're about as heavy as a regular RV this size so I hope you have a strong vehicle if you go this big.

How long does it take to raise/lower one of these? Is the hydraulic system run on battery or what? I've always been curious about these, but never thought the low profile was worth all of the hassle of setting it up and taking it down every time you want to get in.

Well I am tired of having to find a place that will allow dogs , and my dog is my family too so he goes...

Very Nice camper your parents have...

I emailed the person about the camper, it has been posted a couple of days, hope it's not gone.

Thanks for the help Gonzo

Well as far as the hassle, you will improve the MPG and the trailer will not float around as bad the lower the weight is too the ground...

Yep, just depends on what you prefer. Good luck with the purchase.
