We did the same last year that you are looking at this year. Last year we bought a used Cherokee Lite 28A from Pleaseureland in Baxter, MN. Two years earlier we bought a older used Suburban. We only paid 2600.00 for the Suburban and use it only to pull the camper. The insurance is cheap so it was a steal for us. The camper we bought sleeps 8 and it is usually just my wife and the grand kids that go camping also. It is a bunkhouse with a queen bed a slide out for the couch and dinette which both tun into sleeping area. Before this we had two different pop ups that we loved but got tired of setting up all the time.
Think about what you are going to do when it rains out as our grand kids are 8 and 12. We have had rainy camp trips and glad that the camper is the size it is. The oven is a plus since last year was the first year that I had pizza when camping. The grand kids loved it also.
This works for us and we are even leaving to go camping today up by Lake Mille Lacs.
I hope you find the right combination that you are looking for but like somebody else said buy your 3rd camper first. I wish I would of done that.
