Does This Camper Make Me Look Fat?
I was looking for a pop-up to pull behind my Honda Element. Now the Element has a towing capacity of 1,000 lbs. This leaves me with a choice of a few HOT WHEELS size models. If only it could tow 300 lbs. more I'd have a choice of pop ups with full amenities. This Alite model seems pretty nice.
A couple of years ago Dodge came out with a new van, the Sprinter. It has a 3 liter Mercedes diesel that gets 22 mpg. I thought that would make a great camper. A company in California beat me to it. The Sprinter van with the conversion costs about $58,000. I'm thinking if Obama wins this may become an option. No more pesky real estate taxes to support the failing school system. In a couple of years Fed-Ex and UPS will be selling off their used Sprinters; ooohh project!
Now I have to convince CP that all three of us would be happy living in a van.
