What do you have for a holiday trailer or camper
« on: May 12, 2011, 08:31:15 PM »
If you have one that is. I bought one last year, an Open Range, it's not bad, built pretty cheap, but they aren't expensive. I took it elk hunting last year and we went camping to BC with it. Has a double slide and power awning and loads of storage as well as an outside kitchen. I like it because it has proper bedrooms front and back with real doors, not those accordion sliders. That's what sold me on it, it's good for the kids, they can sleep quietly and has a separate bedroom entrance in the back, so me and the wife sit outside in the evenings and relax and just use the back door when we go in.

Just purchased a unit last fall. 1984 chev 24ft motorhome. 350 with a turbo 400. Can't wait to tally up the fuel cost to go to the coast and back this year. Luckily I have a fuel allowance through my company. The thing is mint for it's age and we (wife, kids) can't wait to get out in the thing. Gotta like hot water and a toilet.

Can't post a pic on the phone. I'll be back!!

Here is our trailer, its a 26' Frontier. Works well for the rough stuff we drag it into. I lifted it myself and have taller tires for it to put on this summer.
Cant wait to get it out.

you would be supprised what you cant get into with a low trailer, I dont camp in maintained camp sites so it does go through some good holes and ruts.

My unit is Springdale.  Fairly inexpensive but good enough for the bush camping we do.  Like Pauls, it has the seperate bedrooms so makes well for the family camping.  Bought 5 years ago so the kids are getting bigger so its nice to have a little more room.

I have an old 14 foot skylark double axle trailer that I have been using for the last couple years but finally picked up a full sized truck so I traded my hunting bow set up for an older truck camper. Now I can head out camping and tow the boat all with one vehicle. I used it last weekend for the SAWT tourney at chin and it seems to be really good. I just need to get my folding steps installed or figured out how to be able to remove them when they are not in use and also need to set up the wiring to run to my deep cycle battery so when I drop the camper off of the truck for the weekend I can still have power in the camper.

A big kudos to Chris in the service dept. at canadian tire in Hinton.One of his mechanics did a fark up on our old motorhome and not only did he fix it free of charge but he knocked $400 off the bill for other work that was done.He will get more of my business in the future..:)

This is our little 19ft



It's the perfect size for the wife and I, but I can see myself upgrading to an Arctic Fox one day.  Well, maybe a number of years from now....  I'd like to use the trailer for year-round camping trips.

Here is how the poor people like me roll.... :-[
I lifted the axle and will drag it into a lot of places that many will not take their 4x4s.
I much prefer wall tent camping though.

Nothing wrong with that Axe, it's a thing of beauty as long as you are out doing what you love, that's all that matters.

I bought it second hand, but I believe they are flipped.  I've got 23" of clearance, the lowest point on the trailer will always be at the hitch connection.  I haven't taken it off road per se, but have gotten into a few random sites through ditches with no problems.  My only complaint is that the bed is a little small.

Axeman, that's a sweet setup!

my 2009 arctic fox... 35 ft long... fully equipped for winter use...it has 2 slideouts and toy hauler with flip down ramp in the back... kind of overkill for what i need and im in the market for something smaller... (hint hint) if anyone has something newer?? i do alot of pipeline work and live in it for 6 months of the year so its gotta be nice..  kind of a bad picture but that is my boys yamaha warrior and its for sale... 1000 obo

Well, rather unexpectedly, I came across a TV ad for Bretz RV down in Missoula.  They had a used 2007 arctic fox 22H for sale.  I've wanted an arctic fox for a looooong time, and I made an inquiry on Friday afternoon.  Sales negotiations  on saturday morning.  Then picked up my new (to me) trailer on Monday and traded in my Puma.

Super happy with it!

Jeez, Axeman, I was going to post a pic of our hunting trailer, but upon seeing yours, well if that green stripe was blue it could be mine, right down to the tarp porch!  I raised mine 6" though.   ;D

Corners on ours were finally getting rotten so this spring I opened all four corners up, replaced and reinforced the wood, new wheelbearings, some general maintenance, and she's good for another decade of hunting.  Ivory capping alum. by the roll is the same color as the tin, so wrapped all 4 corners and the old girl looks all dressed up and ready to bounce down the trail.

Last year I put in one of those big buddy heaters and ran the hose to a tank holder on the back of the trailer.  Nice and toasty warm, even with the heater on low it's almost too warm on a cold night.  The factory, "furnace" could be replaced with a 40w bulb, haha.
