We wanted to make sure our new trailer had 3 things:
-room around the bed and to be able to change in the bedroom
-a garden shower
-dining table and chairs
the walk in closet was a bonus
Happy Camping!!

Before pulling the trigger on that 8312SS, take a look at this thread ( Need help picking a tow vehicle )talking about tow vehicles and overall trailer length......the 3212SS is almost 34 feet.....that is 1 long trailer.

for us, the extra counter space would be nice.
i would like a rear view camera. each time i back up, it's like the first time. would also like to be able to see cars right behind me.
a heat pump. put one in on mine abt 4 yrs ago. works well when the outside temp is above 40. below 40, it uses a heater strip.

My post #13 did not previously include the link that I intended....I have corrected that oversight.

That is a lot of trailer for a 1/2 ton truck. Take a hard look at payload and tow capacity and make sure it will work for you. I think a trailer that large would be happier behind a 3/4 ton.

What engine do you have in your 2011 F-150 ?? V-6,Eco or V-8,5.4 or 6.2 you'll be Ok pulling it! Yes its a long trailer, but drive carefully and take your time you'll be ok! We pull the Rockwood Windjammer 3065,its 34'+ with a 2010 F-150 5.4 V-8, Equalizer-4PT-Sway control hitch with 1200lbs bars.w/Prodagy 3P Brake controller. Pulls great....sweaking all the way!
