From "Jaws" and one of the most famous quotes in movie history, "We`re gonna need a bigger boat". Well this may be "We`re gonna need a bigger trailer! :hihi:

I just hope it's warm enough for them to tent it overnight. It was one of those conversations where I said what we were doing and she said that sounded fun and said they'd like to come. Next thing I knew, we're going together!! I did have to tell her that her hubby couldn't chew tobacco in the camper and they'd have to leave the Golden Retriever outside. I love dogs, but with 9 people, plus a huge, hairy dog would definitely put me over the edge!

Thanks for the info

We ended up buying the one with without the elite package. I agree about the buying a mattress topper plus we have a fridge in the outdoor kitchen and we are keeping our camper on a permanent camp site so we have a fridge on the deck.

My 32BHDS has a yellow sticker stating with full 30 lb propane tanks, battery and all accesories installed at the factory it weighs 8605 lbs. Ready to camp it weighs almost 9500lbs. Its a big camper. I just wish my Excursion had a tow rate greater than 9600lbs.

Do you have any problems with the way your Excursion handles it? Mine feels like it's hardly there.

Only when going up big hills. All the way to Disney and the way back I had no problem keeping up with traffic.

This will be our second weekend camping with our 2012 32bhds. we love it! we're currently towing it with our 04 Ram 1500 w/ 5.7l. we're in southwest Michigan so it mostly flat with small hills. mileage is crappie, but tows fine. no intentions of pulling it through the mountains until we get a bigger truck.

My yellow sticker said 8300lbs from the factory, but that didn't include propane or battery. I weighed it last summer on the way to a three day trip, and it tipped the scales at 9620lbs. The F250 pulls it well, but you definitely know it's back there, especially with a head wind!
