That seems like a lot of trailer, especially full timing, for your Tacoma. You really have to be careful, and do a lot of research. I've seen RV dealers sell units to folks that had no business whatsoever leaving the lot hooked up like they were. I've done it more than once myself...
Good luck, and happy camping..
Thanks for your reply. I have done what felt like a ton of research and heaven only knows that I have probably only skimmed the surface.
My Toyota has the towing package allowing me a towing capacity of 6500 pounds.
The shipping weight of the SP-295 was 5,034# and with all the options added on (10th anniversary edition, interior luxury package and the exterior luxury package) tops out at 5600. Lazy days will not let me buy the ones I really wanted (BIGGER) as they have a rule that there must be a weight buffer zone of 750#. So it appears I will be 'in the zone' on this one.
I originally wanted the PASSPORT 3050BH, however decked out that weighed in at 6100.......not in my buffer zone.
I actually thought that the 295 was a bit small for full timing, however, I will make it work. I will be pulling the bunks on the passenger side and putting in storage there...mostly for clothing and a few miscellaneous, 'can't live without' items.
I thought that their list price for this model( $32,500) was a bit high, but we haven't begun the negotiations as of yet . In thinking about it, I paid just a bit south of that for my truck.
Any and all info you provide will be treasured.
This is a new adventure for me, and the downsizing from a 3/2 x30 years has been tedious and challenging!!
I am almost there, though!
Worse scenario as I see it, is that I buy/rent another home down the road, but somehow, don't see that happening any time soon.
Can't wait to hit the road!!
my best to you
