One Out and Another In

So, the 2014 832IKBS is going back to the dealer on Sunday.
We took her to Carlsbad, Tyler State Park, Lavon Lake, Tawakoni, Durant, OK, Hot Springs, AR and a few other places.

But, that's okay. We just felt we needed something a little smaller.
We'll pick-up a 2017 21DS Micro Lite w/Murphy bed and most of the other goodies around next Friday.

DW already has a trip reserved for us.

I'm going to be joking about forgetting the new trailer is back there...

On a side note. I have been fortunate enough to pay cash.
How the heck do people finance and trade in without taking a bath or worse...

I got curious and, looking up the model numbers, discover you had the cousin to the trailer we just purchased (8329SS)!


Congratulations on the new trailer!


The new rig seems A LOT smaller, so I have to ask...you wanted something smaller and you got it...was there something about the bigger trailer you did not like or was it just a size issue?


Cheers!

Length, weight, huge, heavy. I smell those 1 ton folks nearby.. If I had a F250 or F350 (although I would love one as a toy) it would still be huge and there was no way I was going to justify buying a 60k truck just to pull a trailer.

We really looked at it and for two people that spend 90% of the time outside of the trailer for 5-10 trips a year why have one so long?

Besides, if I can get her used to a little smaller maybe I can talk her in to a Class C in the future
