Hello all! We are about to take the plunge on buying a new 2021 TAB ([email protected]
:-) 320 S. Here’s what we are thinking and would appreciate any comments that people might share, especially on options if we are indeed able to build what we want:
We are buying without trying - there are no units near us, especially 2021, for easy access. After searching for what would fit for us, we think the nuCamp 320 would be the right balance. We did look in person at camper vans recently so have at least been thinking about kitchen, sleeping space, storage, overall size. Yes, I know this might sound a little crazy but we’re motivated :-)
CS-S vs S: We had been leaning toward the CS-S, like the outdoor more social kitchen, and the thread here about choosing between the two was really helpful. We live in Northern CA where it can be pretty cool/windy in summer evenings or near the ocean, so the S option, cook indoors w/outdoors still available via our current camp stove + fire seems like the best choice. We also are concerned about storage and sleep space (I’m 5’11 so would appreciate the option for sleeping either direction) and think the S may be the best tradeoff for us there.
Boondock package: We are buying the 320 because it is one of the few non-popup campers that will fit under a 97” carport. The Boondock is spec’d at 96” - I’m interested in it but that’s too close for comfort. I have not been able to get any info on how conservative that spec is - whether it’s actually a little less or could be a little more. Absent more info, we will get the non-Boondock version and add solar as an option.
Other options, if possible
• No microwave - doesn’t feel useful and would prefer to have the storage (mini pantry :-) … downside of resale value issue?
- Upgraded fan - rain sensor, more speeds
- Lighting - checking what’s included and if can add any eg “porch” lighting
- Battery - plan to talk to the dealer re a higher capacity battery
If you have suggestions of other things you know the factory can do, I’d be interested. I am excited by all the customization work I see people doing and will want to explore that over time, but start with a base that meets our needs.
Looking forward to being part of the nuCamp community.
