I recently brought home our first TC - a Six Pac D650. We love it. I don't see them mentioned very often, and wondered if anyone else here had one. It fits our "family" great (2 humans, 2 canines), even at 6 1/2'.
Just curious.

We got it in N. Ca. in Woodland. Saw them first at a Sportsman's show in Sacramento in January. Had everything we needed/wanted, at a good price. We ordered it in Feb. Received it in April. Have camped twice for 4 nights total so far.

Hello RR,

We just bought a new 06 D650 and spent 4 days and nights in the high sierra's. We love it except for the cupboard above the bed, we bang our heads on it easily. Do you have trouble wih yours? I called SixPac to see if they could remove it for us or put a small cabinet on each end. We still can't believe how nice this camper is considering it's on a short bed truck.

Hi SixPac1 - Yeah, I was getting really "good" at hitting my head! My husband laughed each time, until he did it. He doesn't laugh any more! :D :D But, we also don't hit our heads anymore. I'd say I stopped after the 4th or 5th clunk. Now I'm much more aware when I'm lying backwards!!!!

Glad you like yours, we enjoy ours a lot. We're heading off again tomorrow for an overnighter in the Sierras. I'll have to check my journal to see how many nights were at now. But we haven't done as much camping this summer as I'd like (thus squeezing in a one nighter)

Do you have the micro? That's one option I wish I didn't have. The cabinet would be very valuable.

I love having everything I wanted in a shortbox TC. Full size Queen bed, fridge, bathroom, etc. We added a generator, and our next purchase will be an AC. While we don't usually camp where it is needed, the few times we did, it would have made my life much happier!

Hi RR Hounds,

I hope you had a great time in the Sierra's? We are going to Bishop Creek for 7 days/nights on the 12th. of Aug. We are going to take the SixPac instead of the Itasca to give it a long term test. We will have hook ups so that will help. It"s incredible that SixPac has a fresh water capacity of 40 gallons, bigger than most of the competition! We also have A/C and it was so nice on those hot days! My wife found a nice 24" spice rack that not only holds the spices but the silverware and utensils as well. Attached is a link to our SixPac pics.

I hope we don't hit our heads on this trip, we are considering turning around and sleeping the other way this time!

PS RR Hounds,

Yes, we do have th Micro because my wife uses it a lot. We have a 2000 Honda generator that runs the micro and the A\C but we haven't tried both at the same time. We agree, the SixPac needs more storage space, we put a lot of things behind the seat of our trucks ext cab area. I had Helwig rear sway bar installed and it really makes the whole package handle well. Do you have overload springs? I had been considering those as well just for extra safety.

We were only 60 miles from home. Not bad! We went to Fuller Lake this morning to fish (2 Browns and 2 Rainbows in 2 hours). Just relaxed yesterday at Spaulding Lake. Great for a quick getaway.

As for the truck, we run stock. Handles fine so far. However, for the weight police, we weighed the rig for the first time ever in Oregon at a closed weight station and it came in at 9200lbs (8600 GVWR) with 5200 rear and 4000 front. That was with a FULLLLLL grey/black and a 1/2 freshwater and 1/2 tank of gas and no dogs (who weigh 90 each). So we're over, and now I'm thinking that in addition to the AC I'll also need to look at airbags and/pr timbrens. It's funny that once I "know" I'm over, how it affects my thinking while driving.

This is a link to some of my SixPac pictures. http://s35.photobuck.../d193/klordier/ I'm going to send your link to my father-in-law. He's wanting to make us a spice rack. I like the idea of holding utencils, too. Currently I have 3 tupperware type containers in the cabinet over the dinette. One for plasticware (much easier to throw away then clean), one for cooking utensils one for misc supplies. Then I added portable shelves to be able to add more storage. I've organized the over dinette and over bed storage as much as possible!

Hi Kathy,

We just got our SixPac back from the shop, we took care of the problem of hitting our heads on the overhead cabinet over the bed. We had SixPac take the cabinet out of the camper. I tried to send a picture to you here but even though it is not a large pic, the attachment was still too big to post here. We really like the room we have now! The cabinets offered such little storage space I am sure we won't miss it. We are both fairly tall and appreciate the extra space we have now for sleeping. We had SuperSprings in addition to the Helwig sway bar so the rig handles very very well now. Have you guys gone anywhere lately?

To RR Hounds

Here is a link to the picture of the sleeping area now.

Wow, sure looks open up there! You can't even tell there was ever a cabinet there. Not bad.

I don't think I can do without the storage, for us, though. We have "long term" things up there. (bottle jack, tool box, documentation, etc)



We just came back from a 2 night stay at another local lake. Left work early on Friday and spent the weekend fishing.

yeah, we fished. Ken caught. I didn't. But then, it was my first time fly fishing since I took a 3 day clinic in June in Idaho. I've just gotten myself a nice fly setup and needed "practice" yeah, that's it...practice. I'm going to need practice again next weekend too! ;) :D but that will just be a day trip. sigh..
