      2005 6x12 Haulmark "Camper" It has a cabinet, a table, and a propane heater big enough to heat a garage. The previous owner used it as an ice house for fishing.

      We plan on using it for camping, but as of right now, we use it for storage and stuff, as we are displaced from our house due to it being flooded, and the basement collapsing. :(

      ^^more info on the car!

      Here's my trailer. It's a 1996 Jayco Eagle 10 popup camper. It tows pretty well- going up some mountains at 8,000+ feet, the SOHC motor feels a little asthmatic.

      Just bought it this spring and have taken it on 5 camping trips this year so far. It's fun.

      Car is a '92 325i with "M" bumpers. Powered by a Chevrolet LS1 350ci engine and t-56 6 speed out of a '99 camaro. I drive the car almost every day, all the gauges and A/C are fully functional and it gets 25+ MPG!!! I have been 12.2@114 so far and I feel it still has an 11 second pass in it as the weather cools off.

      Here's mine

      2000 Jayco Eagle 12 UDST pop up camper. 3,000 lbs GVWR.

      2TimingTom, Don't feel too bad, My Expedition with the 5.4 liter struggles above 8,000 feet. At 8,900 feet pulling a 10% grade I was floored going 35 mph. No horsepower at those elevations.


      Pulling with the Expedition here.

      Thanks! lol, it dropped to about 11-13mpg, mostly city driving to bring it home.
      Post 200mi trip - 10mpg; Mostly 65mph, no problem running up to 70mph.
      RV center added the WD hitch, since the trailer is only 3k lbs, some say you don't need it, but it supposed to be a lot better with while on the highway. Its a pain to setup, once i get there if i have to move it i'll be using the std hitch.

      I just got mine regeared and uh........ problem solved. Just took it out this weekend up near Pikes Peak and had no issues. It still works hard, but the speedo needle can go upward with the elevation now.

      3.55 to 4.56. Not exactly cheap ($850 installed), but it made a world of difference.

      And nice Jayco. Before I read the description I recognized it as a Jayco.

      We were talking this weekend about maybe upgrading to some kind of travel traveler.

      Our 16' 1963 (Model 16S) Yellowstone and the 95 Quest we used to tow it with. The Quest got totaled a few years ago and I have been without a tow vehicle until last Friday when I picked up my 1999 Explorer.

      Believe it or not, we towed the trailer with the Quest (carefully) for many years with regular hitch and no brakes. Then we finally got a proper 7 way connection on the trailer and van and had P3 brake control installed in the Quest along with a weight distributing hitch. We then took a trip out to MI for the annual Tin Can Tourist Vintage RV Rally.

      After the Quest was totaled, I salvaged the P3 and will have it installed in the Explorer. Too bad the 1999 Explorer is not pre-harnessed for the brake controller.

      I'm sure towing the Yellowstone with a 5.0 L V8 Explorer will be cake compared to the V6 FWD Quest.

      That sir looks damn fine.:thumbsup: Complete the look down the rear tailgate and that Is one damn good looking light set up there. I would love to see some full top to bottom LED brake lights. Expensive as hell but they look the part.

      I would like to do that but the LED strips are about as bright as brake lights. So I don't want to cause confusion and/or get pulled over. Thanks for the compliment too! :)
