Yeah but it's pretty obscene. I had the same thing happen and ended up downloading my whole album from PB. When you download the album it reduces the quality down to 1024x768 size which is perfect for forums. Not like you are printing pictures off of it.

yeah I got pretty lucky. I eventually want to upgrade to something a little bigger. Maybe in the 23' range. For sure something with 2 axles. I can't haul too much inside the TT on just one axle, and backing up is a little more sensitive with one more axle compared to two.

Great job on the trailer rebuild. You got an awesome deal if the roof doesn't leak. About 10 years ago I bought a 1973 Terry 23' and spent the better part of a summer scraping the roof back down to the original aluminum and resealing it, replacing the old ceiling & putting in a new furnace. Once I got it in order I was the envy of my hunting camp!

thanks!

yea the roof doesn't leak. with the pile of receipts, I think I saw a roof reseal sometime in 200x so not too recent, but not as old as the trailer.

I only use it in the summer months, and I cheat during the winter months. I cover the whole thing with a 10x30 tarp.

Just saw this thread. My advice is to keep the smaller trailer. If you go bigger it is so much harder to pull, harder to park. Especially if it is paid off and you have a place to store it without a monthly fee. I had a nice 19' 5th wheel, it pulled pretty easy but we had to pay $50/month to store it and ended up only using it a few times a year. Sold it before anything needed replacing. Got enough to pay it off and a bit extra, but no more monthly storage fee. Sometimes small is good.

Really nice for hunting trips as mentioned previously.

Sorry I didn't see this before. But yea, we decided to keep it. At least for now. But no plans at all to sell and get a bigger one any time soon. When we start having kids, then maybe, but that won't be for a while

I actually haven't brought it out much. This past summer I only took it out once. And this summer is looking really busy too, so I'm not sure if I'll even get it out. I've been camping a bunch, but I've been going by myself and I just sleep in the back of the truck. btw, I wouldn't take this thing wheeling. It's not set up like those TTs in Australia with suspension upgrades and sliders.
