I always try to steer folks looking for their first rv to seek out a good used unit. There is so much depreciation, immediately, on a new unit. Another plus is that often, not always, a lot of the bugs and issues have been worked out on a unit just a year or two old.

If you have a certain campground in mind for a seasonal experience, contact the manager to see if he knows of anyone wanting to sell a good unit. You might even find what you like that is already set up on a suitable site. At a bargain!

Between the 32bhds and 30kqbss right now! Thanks for the reply.
A 3/4 ton should be fine for any travel trailer. Just to be clear, it’s not about “towing” capacity (i.e. the weight you can pull). The “payload” number (i.e. the limit for weight your truck should carry) is always the first spec you’ll exceed when hitching up an RV.
