Okay, first want to thank those who chimed in their advice/opinions on questions regarding pickup campers.
After further thought, I'm thinking a 20-25 used travel trailer may be a better option for the following reasons:
1. more space (accomodates more people, storage space, comfort)
2. seems to be a simple operation to "park & leave" compared to a cabover
3. a little more self-sufficient/self-contained (thinking larger propane tanks, water tanks, etc.)
Of course a big factor is a place to park it and it looks probable that I've got use of a friend's lot for that.
I'd appreciate any comments from those who've had these trailers and/or campers on the pro's/con's of each.
Also, curious how these are typically heated and what about power? Seems like to run a microwave or other electric stuff you'd need a generator of some sort or can battery power run the electrical items? I think the refrigerators, stoves, heat would be run on propane?
