I'm new to the forum this week. The information here is great! Thanks to all who have been building up this great community!
I have been looking at Teardrops for a while and am leaning strongly to a [email protected]
320 of some sort. The [email protected]
400 is also a contender, but would require me to find a different storage situation than I currently have and I'm not sure I need all that space and weight.
Of course the 320 leaves me with enough other decisions to keep me occupied for the rest of winter: clamshell or not, and if not clamshell, Outback/Boondock or not. On the clamshell debate, having the extra area on the bed sounds nice, but sleeping in the same room with a running fridge and the leftover scent of dinner, maybe not. And the storage in the front of the CS looks very practical. Inside bath is working its way to must-have status.
As for Boondock, a few destinations I have in mind involve some unpaved driving, and I’m not sure it requires the extra clearance, but the peace of mind may be of value and the changes to the tongue box and front platform are nice. How useful is that Yakima basket for additional gear when it has the spare on it? Do many folks find a need move the spare to get more out of the Yakima rack?
The local dealer has a number of CS models that are puzzling to me, having looked over the pics on nucamprv.com. The fridges in these CS units look like that in a [email protected]
, lower and top-loading. The counter surface is all one level as in the [email protected]
Is this a new design?
I’m sure I’ll have more questions - just beginning to poke around at things like solar and other ways to charge the battery. I don't care if the video system gets used, but CPAP will extend my warranty by a few years.
