Just got back from a seven day trip to Myrtle Beach. The outdoor kitchen was great. I had multiple people come up and complement me on the setup. We stayed at Ocean Lakes Campground and highly recommend it to anyone going to Myrtle Beach.

We're there now. Weather is awesome. That plus the standup enclosed outside shower are a hit. What spot where you in

Like this trailer

We are considering the 8312SS but did not realize there was a couch option in the rear. Since it is the two of us, and will be camp hosting 8 months a year, we looked at this unit and our thoughts of putting in two lounge chairs in the rear, getting rid of the upper tier, putting in a small LCD for gaming back there, and converting the upper section on the TV side to shelves for storage.

We looked at a lot of trailers like this but found this one the most useful.

What is everyone using as a tow vehicle?

8312SS Towing Vehicle

You will no doubt enjoy the 8312SS as our family has. We have two younger children so the back bed situation works for us. Putting a couch in the rear is a good idea. We tow the unit with 2006 F150 with 5.4L. it pulls ok though I wish for a F250.

rvenneman I am not sure there would be enough room for two lounge chairs. We installed a small LCD in the TV spot and it has worked great for our children! I tow with a 2006 Dodge 2500 Hemi. I had some issues pulling on hills until I purchased a Bullydog chip and reprogrammed my shift points. The Hemi has more then enough power I just wish I could afford the fuel!

Went and took a tour of a 8312SS last Friday. Nice! Wonder if anyone knows about the outdoor TV mount. The dealer showed us the mount but for the life of me I can't recall if there was a cable hookup on the wall or not.
