Feel like a Rookie after 50 years camping

Hello All. Glad I found you. After 50 years of camping, last 10 were in a pickup camper. Took the plunge and picked up a 2020 Endurance 3506 G Toy Hauler. Boy, is this a big rig compared to what we were use to. Decided as we get older, we wanted to be able to carry our kayaks, bikes, fishing gear, dogs easier and the garage seemed to be that answer, had no intention of going this big, but hubby did really like the garage idea. Now hoping to go somewhere, set the camper and go touring around in the truck if we want. Hope to get on the road and see more of the U.S. in 2021. Thanks for being here and am looking forward to reviewing the posts to help us get thru all our adventures. Thanks Sandy/Gregg of Colorado.

Gregg/Sandy, Welcome we have been camping since 2000, We started with a Lance Truck Camper, the biggest 1181, which we still have and use in winter, but we also have a 3895 Toy Hauler, we use the 3895 for long trips, we take a side by side, Dogs, etc, we love the garage space, after removing the UTV, we set up the garage for eating and also use the ramp for the dogs....Yes sometimes its hard to find a spot with 43 ft of RV, but just plan ahead, we use the Truck for both RV's ...Enjoy your Toy Hauler
