It is a Starcraft 14RT, a picture of it is on page 1 of this thread.

Electric lift is a very good thing especially for the larger models. Air conditioning is a good thing especially if you hang curtains to contain the cooled air to the center area during the day - the pull-out tents on either end don't retain much cooled air. A roll-out awning on the door side provides a lot of cooling shade also. About size: "Sleeps 8" is a different proposition from "8 sit inside comfortably during a day-long rainstorm"

I inherited one from the inlaws several years back, an 8-person that fit us 4 very well. We took the kids camping probably 40+ times over the 10 years we had it, it was great (except when we had 8 people in a day-long rainstorm - that was a little tight). Lots of good memories. Never took it more than about 500 miles away from home - probably should have. Fairly simple maintenance, easy repairs. Pulled it with a 1986 Ford Ranger (2.9 L V6 - a little light for the trailer), and a 1997 Ford F150 (4.6 L V8 - just fine). Sold it before I had a Tacoma. A V6 Tacoma would have had no problem whatsoever. That storage deck on the front of the one in your picture looks convenient...

Thanks, so far I have had your comments very specific and helpful, currently we are 5 on our family, 14 yo, 10 yo and 4 yo kids, I think we all going to fit, but this is my very first "complete" experience on a travel trailer. I have enough outdoors experience (you never ends learning), I expecting also a lot of experiences I hope all of them are just great. My truck is a long bed v6 4 door truck is going to be as long as lent... but only time will tell. I'm also planning for short trips no longer than 500 miles (Laredo-Dallas), but confidence will tell how far we can go (and kids).
