Clipper 17bh

Hello everyone. After a lot of debate, we chose to buy our first camper last week. We decided on the 2014 clipper 17bh because it seemed like a good size for a beginning camper. We stayed one night at a local state park this past weekend to test everything out. We will be going out for 3 nights this coming weekend. I haven't seen much feedback or reviews online, and was wondering if anyone had opinions, experience, feedback, helpful tips regarding this trailer.

Very nice starter trailer. I looked on youtube to see what it is all about. Post some pics when you can. I started with a popup. You are already a step ahead from where I started.

Congrats. My family just looked at that model today and we decided that we will purchase the same model. It's perfect for us and sadly we won't be purchasing for about 6-9 months.

Good luck!

We bought our Clipper 17BH in August and have gone on three trips so far with a fourth upcoming.
We have enjoyed it thoroughly thus far.
As mentioned earlier, it is a great starter camper and is light enough to be towed by many of the smaller SUV/crossover SUVs.
Kids love the bunks and momma loves her queen bed.
Here are some pics from our last trip mid september.

Clipper 17BH

We just bought a 2014 Clipper 17BH a few weeks ago and love it. I'm pulling with a 2013 Honda Pilot Touring.i needed to install an ATF to bring tow ability to 3,500 lbs. also got WD, sway bar and brake control to be safe. Kids love the bunks. Just bought HD Digital antenna (75 mile range) from amazon. Any experience with these and curious if it works better than factory installed antenna on trailer.. Gonna use on oct 13 at JD Park in Hobe Sound to watch game.
