    its a used 2000 rockwood freedom This thing is in perfect shape:D I was the first of 4 people to flash the cash! originally agreed upon $4900 with the generator but the fan on the power converter quit working so they knocked $300 off and its a $125 part I haven't tore into it yet but It might just have a blown fuse:rolleyes: still converts but the fan doesn't blow to keep it cool so they gave me a little 4" 110 volt fan that will work until I tear it apart

    Everything else we looked at used in this price range was trashed and none of them had a bathroom:D

    We did look at those as well as the Starcraft RT which was our favorite and the Fleetwood evolution didn't like it. But there aren't alot of used ones we did find a used Jayco and it was 10k we wanted to stay under 6K

    Cool. Something like that would be perfect to tow behind My Dakota. The 4.7 V8 has good power it sure wouldn't pull a big trailer.

    Very nice!

    the wife insisted on us getting a camper after Memorial Day's camping trip (rain & snow all weekend) and gave me a $500 budget, so Just a couple days ago we brought home a '72 8.5' slide in :D Nothing says "classy" like a $36k '05 CTD Dually with a 35 year old $500 camper on the back :D

    But any way you look at it, camper>tent. Way to go

    Looks nice, brother. I remember when Kim and I decided that tenting was no longer fun, and started looking at trailers. We started off with a 21' Rockwood TT, and now own a 35' Terry TT with a 12' slide. My point? In a year or two you'll be upgrading to something bigger and better with A/C and an actual bathroom. And you thought building your truck was costly!!! :rotfl:

    Anyhow, there comes a time when a man has to realize that enjoying your time away from work and the daily grind should be as fun as possible. I just came to that realization about 4 months ago, and for the first time in my life I am spending my money on fun stuff. Life's too short.......

    Nice find. Take care of it, keep it clean, and in a couple of years you'll be able to flip that sucker for the same as you paid for it.:thumb:
