Talked to Phil yesterday to discuss the different types of campers that might fit my needs. There is one commonly known as a "tear drop" that is just an adorable little thing that might be able to be pulled behind my car. It has no bathroom or shower, but in all truth, I am not sure that would be important to me. When I travel now, I have no problem stopping at rest stops along the way and I imagine longer trips would be the same way. Showering, however, might be a different thing. How long can you go without bathing?
Phil was nice enough to take the time to answer some of the questions I had in my first post. Apparently I do not need "muscle" which is a big relief to me, but I do need to make sure I have a AAA membership. I have actually been thinking about getting that anyway, but it certainly would add to my comfort to know there is that to fall back on.
I also did some research on vehicles on my own. I looked at Craig's list to see what independent seller were asking, and then to dealerships for used vehicles. I thought going with a dealership would be a good choice, because they would be in better repair, but the prices were staggering. I did find out what a "fifth wheel" is. It's a trailer with an extension of the pickup truck where you can put a mattress for extra sleeping space. Not something I would use. I am leary about buying anything from an independent seller, because I think these things can hold a lot of hidden problems that a novice such as myself would not see.
Well, first things first. I have to find out if my Scion would be able to pull something like a teardrop.
