Poor Geoff. He has gone off to the dark side. We will miss you buddy.

oh Jeff...

Seems like all but the lightest trailers would be pushing the 2000lb tow limit once you load them up with gear. But I really like the looks of your trailer.

It wasn't too bad hauling home. It hauled very nicely. I don't know what the tow limit is on a Cherokee is, but the previous owner of the trailer hauled it all a Cherokee with no issues. But thank you, it's a decent little rig.

Hey Cons. Cool camper man. My wife and I camp in ours all of the time. Granted, mine isn't a retro canned ham trailer, it's a 2008 20' Fleetwood Wilderness, but we have the greatest times in it. In fact we are going to my favorite campground the weekend of October 28th - 31st. It's called Thornhill Broome in Point Mugu State Park. It is an awesome place that is right on the beach. Seriously, you step out of your trailer onto the sand and you have 100 yards of private beach right in front of you to the water.

PM me if your trailer is ready and you want to come along. I can make the reservations for you online or you can do it yourself. Campgrounds and Camping Reservations - ReserveAmerica and search for it under Point Mugu SP. They label it as Thornhill Primitive. It's $25 / night if memory serves me correctly.

You will get very used to that website now!

Here Geoff, just incase you are thinking about it and need a little convincing, here are a few pics of Thornhill. Disclaimer: I suck as a photographer and my camera was a cereal box prize.


Here is a picture of what all of the sites look like. Each with their own table and fire pit. Dumpsters and port-a-pottie huts (for those who need them) staged every 20 spots or so.

Here is a view of how wide your spot actually is. My old truck was a quad cab long bed and my overall trailer length is about 23'. You have that wide of a spot for at least 100 yards to the water. The hills just behind the PCH is in the background.

View from closer to the water looking Southeast. It is a rocky beach, but the rocks stop at the waterline so swimming and bodysurfing is still cool. When the tide comes up at night, the sound of the rocks being pulled back is really cool.

You got it bro. The unspoken rule of owning a camping trailer is that a veteran pays your way for your first outing. That is if you show up with them at their campground on your maiden voyage. Give me good notice on your first outing and I will gladly return the favor that was shown to me in '08. Two or three days worth that is, I ain't fronting you the skrill for a month in Yellowstone or anything!
