If you pull a camper ofany size, let me hear from you. Just curious who camps and what they camp in. I will start. We camp about 6 times a year mostly at the beach,and we pull a 26 ft prowler fifth wheel.

I try to get the wife and kids out at least 6-8 times a year in our 26' 2000 Wildwood bunkhouse 5vr...I prefer beach camping to pad camping anyday..Glendo, Gernsey, Big Mac and Enders are our favorites....

I pull a 40' featherlite car hauler that has the front 22' made up for living quarters and my Jeep fits into the back. I try to get out at least once a month even if it's close to home. We live in a pretty good area for camping since we are only minutes from the Gulf coast and an hour away from some of the best bass fishing lakes in the US. (Sam Rayburn reservoir, Toledo Bend, Lake Livingston, etc.) So there are lots of camping options to choose from. My trailer isn't quite as modern as the new toy haulers but, I can take just about anything I want with me. ATVs, motorcycles, bicycles, golf carts, you name it have found there way into the back of it. Here's some pics, sorry for the mess, took pics right after getting home one day. Let's see what you guys roll in too. It gives me ideas on how I can add to my own setup.

We try to get out at least one weekend a month. Usually it's to the Ocean beaches here in WA state. Once a year we head back to the mid west with it to visit family. We pull a Holiday Rambler 33 ft 5th wheel.

Pull a 30' toyhauler (Fleetwood Tracker) and camp about 10 times per year. We camp a lot at the Mark Twain Forest (Chadwick, MO) and ride the atv's. Also go to Waynoka, OK about twice per year to the sand dunes. Other miscellaneous trips in between. BTW, owtcast that rig looks nice. Looks like plenty of room for the toys.

You all don't camp. You have hotel rooms on wheels. I camp in a tent, bath in a river near my camp site. When I camp there is no electricity, or running water. That is camping, some times I don't even have a tent.

I have a 27 foot Ragen Toy Hauler that we take just about everywhere. I love fishing in the high Sierra's and going to the dunes in Glamis, CA.

I know and what it boils down to is I am jealous because as I am getting older it is getting rougher for me to camp in the style I do. I just keep dreaming of a toy hauler.
