Walmart is always close by, you don't have to take enough food to last a month. You don't have to take enough clothes to last a month, there are places to wash your clothes at in near bout every campground.

Buying our first TT and can we tow this

Lady asks a nice question. The trailer is too heavy for truck. Especially with a year long trip. The truck being older and small V8 will be stressed not to mention the transmission.

You need room for a year long trip. Finding a alternative truck would be the best bet if finances allow.

I used to have a F150 with a 4.6. Great truck and great engine, but wasn't much for towing. I wouldn't have wanted to tow more than 5000 for long distance, and much less if hills were involved

My opinion is to find a truck to fit the camper you want. Once you're ready, you'll be able to get the Evo. I wouldn't settle for a camper your current truck will tow... It's an older truck, and to be frank, no matter what TT you buy, you'll probably wish you had a better TV. Take it from a guy who had to upgrade his tow vehicle because of the TT I purchased (twice!&#128563.

TWICE???? Thought I was the only one that did that. Learned not to take my wife to the dealer when taking a camper in for service.

Thanks, but we can't do both a truck and TT. We will not be working so we will have zero income. Everything will be done with the cash we have. We really like the rock wood mini lite. We will probably go buy that Monday.

You will be very happy with the Mini Lite series, we have its sister series the Micro Lite and they are great trailers.
We only have a small 4.7l V8 in our truck and it pulls our ML23FB with ease.
