Buy your TV with a eye towards your next camper - and trust me, if you become addicted to the lifestyle as most of us have, there WILL be a next camper

So, in your case, look toward a SUV/TRUCK that can tow, say, 7-8K of trailer or 5th wheel. That way when your wife, daughters and their 2 BFFs crowd you out of the Roo and into a larger trailer, you will not have to upgrade your TV as well

(In case you haven't figured it out yet...yeah, been there, done that! )

I think a lot of us find this out the hard way lol

Tylor,


Since you mentioned a Tahoe, I'd encourage you to consider a Suburban/Yukon XL. Marginal cost/mpg difference and a world of extra space for gear and passengers. The longer wheel base is better for towing as well. Best of luck.

Welcome! My wife and kids have been weekend "camping" in our trailer now that we have a property to park it on. Odd for January, but there you go. It's Orlando. That's You may find yourself using it more than you thought. It's work, but it's fun work.

Thanks. If you don't mind me asking what unit do you own and where do you store it?
