    Who else tows a trailer, boat, or camper? What do you have? What type of toys do ya'll got?

    I usually haul my 2 place snowmobile trailer...it gets used for everything. But I am also looking at getting a small camper.

    The Suburban or Tacoma pull a 24' bumper pull car trailer and a 19' Glastron ski boat. I have a 42' Car Hauler that gets pulled by the Silverado dually.
    I'm in the process of selling my motorhome and buying a camping trailer.

    Dan how comfortable is that camper in the cooler months. Jayco pop outs are one of the ones I'm looking at but I didnt know anyone that owned one until now.

    Good to hear. Prices on the Jayco's are reasonable, I was worried there was issues that the sellers werent disclosing. I like the fact that a mid 20' trailer extends to over 30' of living space. They also have sturdy aluminium frames and fiberglass exteriors.
