Default Got a new family toy :)

We are wanting to go camping a bit more, and to make things easier we went with this little setup. Found it locally, they were the second owners but never used it It actually smells new still.

It's a 1985 Palomino Shetland XL, just a little guy. Partially hard sided, pretty cool, sink, heater, battery, stove. I think we are going for this or next weekend.

Cool. It will look better once you get the 35's under it.

Yeah it's needs a lift and bigger tires. My 37's make that camper look REALLLY small.

I can actually sleep in it not too cramped at all...No worse than any bed under a king size. It's just barely wider than the 80.

I haven't mentioned 35's to the wife.....yet right now I can pick up the front and push it up the driveway into the garage by myself...thats pretty nice

40 will haul it, the 80 will...mostly the 80.

I think small 33's will be perfect

hopefully we'll have lots of good times in the ol camper. Growing up we did in our old school camper.
