interesting, thanks, but I quickly ran it up to over $20,000 similar to the 4 x 4 camper I priced out. but like it, no place for a port a pot.

Leaving tomorrow morning to pick up my first truck camper! For the time being, this will serve my purpose of having a weekend get away camper and get me in the truck camper ball game. If the retirement plan all works out in four years, I'll take a look at a new configuration with a regular cab over pop up or hard side. But that will require a new truck and that is not in the plans for now.

Can't say enough about working with the Pete, one of the owners at Capri. Incredible customer service all the way through. Always has time to talk and discuss whatever was concerning me at the time.

Using www.postimage.org - not sure how the pics below will come out.

Most of the window style 5,000 BTU A/C units slope down in such a way that all the condensate water runs outside the camper to the ground. The Rayzr has the A/C mounted horizontal and all the condensate water collects in a pan beneath the unit. So where does all this water go ? According to Travel Lite, it just evaporates. Since you can't see it, how do you know it's evaporating faster than it's collecting ? The only place for it to go in this situation is down between the walls. Just one of my concerns for selling ours after a very brief ownership. If you don't have the A/C option, then not a problem [emoticon]

In your scenario, I agree with Grit Dog as well. You aren't going to be hauling around a barge camper anyway (like a lot of folks on here do)....lol

I'd get LT tires and check your rims to make sure they can carry the weight as well.

My Palomino SS1500 pop up weighs 1790 dry, 2300 wet and ready to roll and it's loaded. Palomino makes a couple lighter models (with no wet bath) in the 1300 range, well within your capabilities. So does 4 Wheel Campers and NorthStar in their pop up line. All depends on what you want to spend and what you want inside but a gutted shell, you can get by without going that route. There are pop up campers out there with everything inside that will fit your weight criteria.
