looking to up grade after 4 camping trips

well after having company with us for 2 of the for nights we have came to conclusion our grey wolf 25rr is to small. with 4 people sleeping and one wakes up they really have no place to go in the camper besides outside. So the hunt is on for a 5er toyhauler. looking at the XLR hyper lite. I know my 3/4 duramax will pull it and stop it after I change brake controllers

we got ours last September so it hasn't been a year for us lol. when we got it we weren't thinking about people staying with us. we are shooting for a camper in the mid 30ft range with a actual garage. its a pain having to take the cushions off the couch move the table just to put our rzr in the back and when its in there all the tie downs are in the wrong spot

My stepkids liked camping until they had to break down the dinette, put their rooms up, etc.

The new one with a fold out queen size couch, yeah that's acceptable. Problem is, now they're too grown up to go silly camping.

fortunately my family likes camping. it doesn't bother my bother and his g/f to help set up/pack up camper when we go out. but they agree on the bigger camper for more space

We've had our Salem since October of 2011, but the DW decided that we need to take the bikes along, so TH shopping we went, and an XLR Hyperlite is on its way to our dealer. I liked the 30hfs5, it's 9081# empty with a pin weight of 1611# (all empty/dry, of course.) Totally towable with a 3/4 ton diesel. Can't wait to bring it home!

nducker: For me the XLR Hyperlite 29HFS fills the bill, but the 5er is still tempting. The one I am getting is supposed to be a 2015 from RV Wholesalers... but will look at a left over, new 2013 5er when I go there in a little less than 2 weeks. For your information, RV Wholesalers in Lakeview OH has a 30HFS5 (maybe 2) that can be bought for less than $30K if you finance for a year.. how much less?... the latest thing I saw is "make offer" on their website. The discounted price is about $34K, but I had a $30K quote. Your Duramax should have no problem hauling it, as you mention. Go to their website and check it out.

And I have the XLR Thunderbolt and wish I had something smaller! lol Have only used it twice and haven't really added our personal touch to it yet because it's "too big" to park at our house! I think once we can get in there and do our decorating and arrange things the way "I" want them, then it will be ok. Sleeps 10 though!!
