Age and a bit of hard use, along with plenty of water intrusion (already problems when we got it) made it impossible to lift off the truck in one-piece, so we had to do a lot of the disassembling still sitting in the pick-up bed.

Sitting at Amana Iowa / Frogtoberfest right now ... maybe can post the images from dismantling when we get back home. It was an interesting study in how RV's, and TC's in particular are assembled. We harvested a lot of parts from it ... wore down more than a couple #2 square driver bits in the process ... not sure which half of the equation is more remarkable, as we compared the construction of a 1994 Model (assembled Fall 1993) Veri-Lite 1130 Truck Camper, with what we have now in our 2015 FR Tracer TT, in that there are a lot of changes and improvements, but there are a lot of fundamentals and a bit of smart design/engineering that remain unchanged.

The guy who took the Bagsters, said it was the first TC he had picked up.

In shopping, we only saw like two up-close, but overall very few on the dealer lots. We were going to New RV dealers. Right before we pulled the trigger on our new TT, we gave it one last consideration ... but our real medium to long term plan, is for extended (month-plus) excursions to a fixed spot, and our fixed spot is accessible for towing and parking the TT into pretty easily. Or maybe, an entire Summer in the TC (and that with two large dogs) was just a little too close. But ... we did NOT regret that opportunity at all.

Hey ... apologies to those enduring these long-winded posts ... maybe goes to support SidecarFlip's assertion, TC'ers do have a unique passion. It's a little different from towing, for absolute certain.

But in the end ... hey ... we are all out camping !!! And in this mode, we are all lucky ... it is about the journey AND the destination, many others can't say that.
Interesting read. My lifestyle requires a slide in. I cannot use a pull behind or even a MH because of where I mostly camp at. I have to have a 4x4 and a slide in, to get in and out. When I pull my quad trailer behind I'm always cognizant of how little clearance there is between the axle and the ground and what I run over...logs, stumps or whatever.

Old TC's make dandy on the cheap hunting chalets...

During times of non-use, my TC stays inside a heated / air conditioned building. That, I'm sure really adds to the lifespan.

I do find it amazing that some folks buy TC's with slide outs and side entries and in board genny's and pay way more than the cost of a nicely equipped TT or fiver and cannot go anywhere off road because the truck is too big...

I don't get that at all. If I was only going to camp at a campground, I'd never have a TC, however, thats not the case with me,
