Its a 95 Skamper model 072s, the base foot print is 38" wide and 88" long so I have to have the tailgate down for it. I only have 10lbs of air in the bags and it rides like its empty.. Can't wait to get out this weekend with it.

I like it but the wifey wants a small travel trailer with a potty!!!

You can probably make her happy with a Luggable Loo and a Trekker Fold-A-Privy. I've used a LL for years, and bought the tent a few days ago. There's a trick to getting it to collapse properly, but it's not that hard. My pop-up has an external shower, so I'll also use it for a private shower space, with a inflatable kiddie pool to collect the waste water.

If you don't have a heater, a Mr. Heater Buddy will warm up that camper quickly.

Being that the OME were double walled was the decision maker for me

Bought out the truck at end of lease. Also replaced the Bosch Icon wiper on the driver's side (old one was streaking).

Congratulations on the buy out ! How long did your Bosch Icon wiper on the driver's side last B 4 it started streaking ? My driver's side started streaking and I'm not too happy considering the $$ - they sure ain't cheap.

Mine are a year old OEM replacements and already need replaced with barely 6k miles on the truck and garage kept. Lame. Glad I didn't pay for them. Best blades I have used are the high-end Valeo ones and I plan to source another pair to replace these busted ass ones.

Think I'll check out Valeo. Looks like I'm not the only one not happy with the Icons.

I have gone through two winters with them. The passenger side wiper is still working fine. Driver's side developed an inch-wide streak directly in my field of view.

I had bad luck with those, the RainX ones and a few others too. Colorado can be pretty tough on wipers give the swing in temperatures.

I've had great luck with the Trico NeoForms, both for winter and summer.

Regarding what I did today. Swapped out my K&N for the clean one in my shop. Cleaned and oiled the old one and bagged it for fall.

Oil change, Castrol GTX dino oil and Toyota filter.

Tomorrow I will rotate my tires. (all 5!)

160,000 miles and going strong!

I forgot to mention, paid it off 2 months ago!!!

I've had bad experience with the rainx and the bosch icons as well. So I got sick n tired of spending $30 for a set of wipers and went with the el cheapo wal mart ones. For $8, they have out performed and lasted longer than the expensive brands.
