When PirateJohn sees those Wanderlodges, he'll be in here too. That's what he lives in.
I bought a new Lance camper in 98. For jeep'n and motorcycle riding with kids it worked well. We payed around 12k for it and even lived in it for 5 mo's during a stretch we used the holy shit out of it.


We sold in in 05 for 7k. Not bad for 7 years of enjoyment. Funny thing is you cannot find one of equal value today for under 7k.
It is still worth what we sold it for 4 years ago.

Campers and motorhomes interest me because although I love looking at trailers you cant pull anything in Washington behind them.
Tent trailers are completely useless and I just don't fancy 5th wheels. Although we have friends that haul their Race Jeeps in them and like them fine.
Just not a good use of space for me. But having a separatable pull rig would be nice every once in a while.

I also like these.

I've seen several in the $1500 to $2500 range, the damn things really hold their value. A new one goes from 12k to 16k.
