We've decided for sure.

After looking and looking we've decided on the Tracer 3150BHD. It's as big as we could hope for and exactly what we want in a floor plan. We'll wait till spring to make the leap and we can't wait.

We bought ours at the end of the summer and have used it only twice. I am sure you will love it. The bunkhouse is great, as is the outside kitchen and the second door to the bathroom. The only downside at the moment is the length. I knew going in it was going to be big but it's REALLY big. Be sure you pre-plan your gas stops/have an exit strategy for everything you drive into.

Have fun!

Congrats!
We've seen a lot of these on the road and in campgrounds and the owners all seem to love them!

Congrats. You will really enjoy the outdoor kitchen. Happy trails next year.

FYI, I would ask you to look at the tongue/tow capacities of your Tacoma and hitch if that will be your tow vehicle. Your Tracer is heavy at 706 tongue and 6955 dry weight.

I have a 2011 Tundra. I've talked to several Toyota service techs. They agree it'll be no issue. I can tow 8200lbs with a tongue weight of up to 1000lbs. I tow a 31' boat trailer now and I drive firetrucks for a living. Big doesn't bother me. I also have Firestone Ride Rite airbags on the way to help with the spring sag.

You'll like that floorplan and plenty of sleeping accomodations...we took delivery of a Salem Hemisphere 346 QBUD the 3rd of July and love it, similar floorplan but 40' fifth wheel with 1/2 bath from outside and full bath up front. We love it and can't wait to pull out again next spring, right now it is winterized, although it is a nice 70 + degrees outside today. Six more years then I retire and can travel anytime I want.

Sorry, long day. Thought I saw Tacoma earlier in your signature. Tundra is no issue for that rig. Heck, one even pulled the space shuttle
Enjoy. Your floor plan is a really nice one.

Waiting till the next trip is the hardest part....
Mine is also put away and winterized now
