New Campers

My wife and I want to get started with a travel trailer. I want to try to stay under 25 ft and have been looking at a Micro Lite 25DS. Anyone have any advice? I'll be towing with a 2008 F150 with factory tow package and 5.4.

Not knowing anything about your truck I would suggest avoid being at the very end of your towing range. Keep in mind dry weights are useless in determine towing numbers. I will let the experienced members guide you on this matter if you need help.

Once you find the right travel trailer many wonderful memories will be coming your way. Get out as often as you can or like and enjoy the journey.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I have a Rockwood 2304 and love the floorplan. I tow with a 4.3L V-6 Chevy without a problem. Good luck with your search.
