      Is this thread really nearly 4 years old?

      Anthony, have you looked into these any further? I have my travel trailer for sale and am trying to decide my next step. I thought about this idea but was concerned that many of these slide-ins cover up the receiver on the truck so you couldn't tow. I'm sure some don't. Also I think these would require a 3500 if towing a trailer.

        I'm definitely still thinking about it. I backed off for a little bit but I'm passively shopping. I've got automatic craigslist searches going, but I'm not in the best place to buy right now. If a really good and cheap one comes around, I would have a hard time saying no. I think it would be hard to lose value on a well cared for used example.

        My new favorites are the Four Wheel Camper Hawk. Lightweight, good quality, custom built, and made locally.

        Northstar 650SC is my runner up. Good quality, good design, but a little heavier.

        Buyer's Guide:

        I would have bought 3500 SRW if this was my end goal when shopping for a truck but I think lightweight truck camper and race trailer can be done safely with a 2500.
        We also just got a dog so that might be more of an excuse to do domestic camping vacations instead of international vacations.

          Just install couch/bed, AC and TV on the enclosed trailer. No need for those camper.
          Add a Generator and you good for the weekend.

            ^^That makes sense if you only want to go to the track. A truck camper could be good for other trips too. I don't think I'd want to pull a car hauler off road. I haven't made a decision, I'm just exploring ideas.
