    IMG_1275.JPG Well, advancing to 60, wanting to tour more and work less we decided to sell the Cobalt and get a off road teardrop. The Cobalt is great for destination camping, but way too much effort for daily set up and tear down. Now we basically have a bedroom and kitchen on wheels. Very simple, but that's all we ever wanted. I'll still be able to get out and chase elk, boondocking is still on the menu, but we are looking forward to more travel and easier set up.

    Nice Expedition Rig, Dana. I am jealous as we have moved to a small offroad 5th wheel. Lets meet up and do some boondocking in the spring/summer.

    Easier set up is definitely a plus.

    Nice and simple, very cool! Never heard of this line of teardrops, I'll have to check it out.

    We saw quite a few of these this year, also similar ones. Maybe that has to do with the areas we camp.

    Its not PUP roomy, but there is more inside area than you might think by looking at it.

    There is a lot to be said about teardrops. Heck you can get away with just backing it in without leveling if you don't mind sleeping on a slope.. my friends don't even bother unhooking their car. Just pull in and perhaps set up the ez-up and done. So quick and easy.

    That is quite a teardrop, looks tough,even looks like a small tank, I'll have to check the manufacturer out as we only live about 15 miles from Dothan. Hope y'all have many great adventures with you new unit. The setup and breakdown was the main reason we went from PUP to a small TT after 2 back operations my body just could not preform as well as it did when I was younger Good Luck and Happy Camping
