  1. 2020 Ram 1500 Classic Tradesman Crew Cab, color RV Walnut Brown MetallicLess than 3 months old with only 192 miles in new condition5.7 V8 Hemi, 3.92 rear axle ratio, 5’7” bedTrailer Tow Package (max towing 10,789# max payload 1,614#)—Class 1 hitch, tow mirrors, brake controller, etc.Tinted windows, wheel locks, all weather mats and carpet mats, door edge guards. See window sticker and Dealer tag in pictures for full description.Kelly Blue Book “used” prices on this is $34,242--$36,771.Contact me for more information or photos.***Why selling? Planned on buying a travel trailer, but 10 days after buying truck, wife (now ex), said she wanted a divorce. Have no need for a truck.
  2. Thinking about going fulltime, but wonder if this is the right time because of all of the Newbies now. How much harder and/or stressful is it finding campsites now? I have heard of people reserving a year or more in advance. This is not something I want to do. I don't want to be on a schedule to be at a certain place on a certain date. That does not sound like fun to me. I am sure some will recommend boondocking, which I might do a little here and there, but I would prefer to have full hookups or at least electric. Like to hear from those fulltiming now. Thanks
  3. Not sure why you are skeptical. I have a 2020 Ram 1500 Classic Tradesman Crew Cab with the towing package. Mine is rated a 10,790# with 1,615# payload. My Rockwood 2205S is about 5,000# empty and 7,000# loaded. Now, I haven't done the Rockies yet, but with over 50% more towing capacity than the loaded trailer, I don't think that I will have any problems. I doubt that you will either.
  4. I am in a similar situation and asking myself the same questions. In fact, I have been trying to think where or how I could get some answers/directions. About me, 74 in relatively good health and shape: Also younger wife who for many years expressed an interest in traveling. Our marriage has been more one sided--me loving her a lot more and me trying to make it work. So for the last two months or so, I have been talking about getting a travel trailer and doing some traveling. We visited some dealers and went to the Tampa RV Show (we live in the area) last month, January, to look at trailers. I found one that I like, Rockwood 2205S (23'10" length), and put a deposit on it. I am not a truck person, so, I needed to buy a truck to tow it with. After much looking, I bought a 2020 Ram 1500 Classic Crew Cab on Jan 29th. On February 10th (just 12 days after I bought the truck), my wife tells me she wants a divorce. So what do I do now? Do I go ahead and buy the trailer (approximately $27,000), sell the new truck, which has less than 200 miles, for a loss, or what? Traveling and seeing places that I haven't seen and doing new things sound interesting, BUT I do NOT, repeat, do NOT like doing things on my own. Of course, I do things on my own, but they are not nearly as enjoyable as when I am with someone. For me, it doesn't matter what I am doing--watching TV, shopping, or whatever, it is nicer doing it with someone. That said, if I did complete buying the trailer and went traveling, I am afraid that I would be extremely lonely and not be able to enjoy it. I might as well stay home and be lonely. What I haven't mentioned is that I am an introvert. Meaning that I am not outgoing, and never have been. Meeting people is very hard for me. Trying to figure out what to do and the best, is very difficult. Good luck to both of us.
  5. Our "plan" is to travel 2-3 months at a time and then return home for a month, and do it again. IF we stick to our plan, we will be camping 7-9 months a year, and not being rich, we thought about buying a camping membership. If we end up not liking it, most plans can be resold, and might not lose much. With all of the other newbies, camp sites will be hard to find, that is why we are looking at a higher level membership that you can reserve further in advance and have more camping days.
