Hi all, I was super jazzed about potentially purchasing a used Travel Lite 700 built in 2015 as it will fit well with my 2004 Tundra. However after perusing this forum now I’m doubtful about moving forward with the purchase. The issue is I don’t want a pop up TC and everything out there weighs too much or is at the top of my limit ~1,800lbs. The 700 floor plan is great, I don’t need much, no bath etc. The guy who is selling it spent a month in it with his grandson and no issues so I’m surprised by the comments here. I really trust him as he is a long time RVr and clearly hates to sell this one but must due to health.

I like the Lance 650 but it’s wet weight maxs out my truck. I’m not crazy about that. I have been considering a Capri which I could customize to my own desires but I live in California thus making pick up in Texas difficult even with most of my family there. And I also like the Alaskan 6.5 and its weight is good, but pricey! Anyone think my Tundra would be fine with the Lance? I’m anxious to get on the road :)

Thanks for any suggestions!
Marty

i do not know what weight you want/need , etc. but check out Northstar Trucks. they seem to have a good choice of different type and sizes.

BTW pop ups are a good choice since you are  concerned about weight.

Personally, with the limited weight capacity of that truck, I’d be looking at a light weight aluminum framed Four Wheel Camper Hawk or Flet model.
I have been a tent camper since my Boy Scout days long, long, ago. Now I need to get up off of the cold ground to get a good nights rest, a truck camper seems to be the best choice. I am here to learn as much as I can.

Hi Stan. FYI. I made it by 4wheel and was very impressed. I really didn’t want a pop up again, had a trailer. But this thing is impressive! Seriously thank you for pointing me towards them!
