I came across this forum while searching for bunk options/ideas. Seeing pics others have posted required signing up, so here I am. Just spent the last hour combing through posts and have definitely learned a lot.
The trailer is a 2007 23 Classic. Technically not mine but my parents hadn't used it for about 5 years and didn't want to store it anymore, so we brought it out to our property. So far I've found a couple surprise plumbing leaks that developed over the years in storage, but nothing that's caused too much damage. Other than that, the trailer seems to be in pretty good shape and just about everything is working.
We've done a few day trips down to the beach and one overnight at Doheny State beach - first time camping with our kids (2 yo, 4 mo). I was always a minimalist when camping on my own, but appreciated having the trailer with the kids there.
We're definitely pushing the towing capacity with my Ram 1500 w/3.6L, but adjusting the WD hitch to my truck and adding airbags has helped a lot. Pretty happy with the 15 mpg while towing.
We've considered buying our own newer, small bunkhouse trailer but the prices are just insane and I hear so many bad things about quality. Considering just remodeling what we have and maybe adding a bunk setup.
Anyways, I'm glad to have found the site and look forward to learning a lot.
