Of course, “my” list is my list. So, you are just wrong again, but why not list your list instead of being wrong about mine?


The title says "What are the top 5 advantages of a TC? "
so obviously it is you, who is wrong.
In my list I would put
- it is allowed to park at tent sites in some jurisdictions.


Maytag, you have issues, man...

Geez, way to pee in his Cheerios.
Someone trying to post why we like TCs and he gets shot down.
I’m on a trip now and it’s nice to be able to park in the car spots at rest stops away from the noisy trucks.

Feel free to add your list of the top 5 advantages of a TC. Here are mine.

1. Able to pull a significant trailer.
2. Can park in many parking lots, so it travels well.
3. Have my kitchen/bed/bathroom/bed with me.
4. Easy to get campground spaces due to short length.
5. Good for winter since it is on my 4 wheel drive truck


I'm good with all 5. Someone either has a bone to pick with you or can't understand plain English.

1. I always wanted a TC. I had a TT and TC are just more versatile.
2. I like having my ATV on a trailer instead of in the bed of my PU. Makes it easy to unload to check out places rather than getting caught in some tight place where you can't turn around.
3. My current TC is PERFECT for me.
4. I like it.
5. I like it.

1) My HOA can't say a thing about me parking it in my driveway (like they can about boats and other types of RVs). It is considered part of the truck's load.
2) Insurance is covered under the truck whether it is on or off of the truck.
3) I do not have to pay license fee every year in Ohio like I did with other campers, trailers and boats.

1-Able to get into places other RV's can't.
2-Parking in parking lot's is a plus.
3-Just pull over anywhere and it's home..
4-Pull my ATV trailer with a UTV on it which is to big for a pickup bed and TT..
5-Just drive down to the river for lunch and it's all there.

I could go on and on about TC's and why I have owned all the types and choose the TC for backcountry use..

1. Nimbleness - on a "tour" of the fun spots in Portland OR (following my daughter in her car), there were many places we could NOT have gone with a more conventional RV (our TC is a popup)
2. Allowed on length-restricted highways and National Parks
3. Fun camping sites, including some pretty rustic ones
4. Good mpgs, everything considered
5. Fits in our storage barn with 10' doors

Granted, we had all those advantages with our converted Transit van, except that it didn't have a kitchen, and with Covid, I wanted to be more self-contained. For $3300, I have what I need and it's probably not depreciating near as much as the Transit did....LOL!

My list comparing to the Motorhome & 5th wheel I owned.
I like TC's because I can camp in small campsites.
Being able to take Camper off truck and use the truck for hauling. (gravel,firewood,etc)
Able to replace the Truck and keep the same camper.
Easier to park.

1. Ground clearance
2. Tow different kinds of trailers
3. Ease of parking, such as near El Indio in San Diego
4. Warm in cold weather
5. Don’t fall apart as rapidly as towable RV’s

We’re all different. That’s why we can choose from truck campers, motor homes, trailers, tents, etc. it’s all about what works for you. My 2 cents.
