The wife and I are looking at medium sized travel trailers for our family of four's growing camping addiction.
Found a pretty good deal on a 2011 Tracer Micro 225M camper locally, and I'd like you guys' opinion on it.
It's a 25' tandem axle (w/ electric brakes) with a dry weight of 3145 lbs. It seems pretty nose heavy though with a tongue weight of 525lbs.
That's my biggest concern. I'm getting the dealer to throw in a weight distribution hitch, but I'm not sure if that buys me enough room on the tongue weight.
My truck does not have the factory tow package, but I do have a Class III aftermarket hitch, a transmission cooler, brake controller, and Firestone Ride-Rite airbags.
My Class III hitch has a tongue weight limit of 500 lbs, and 550 with a WD hitch.
Seems like cutting it a bit close maybe?
Note that we never camp anywhere without hookups, so the tanks will always be empty.
