I pick it up Friday, and get registration, tags, insurance and my towing ball setup so I can take it to its new home base.   I sold my property of 30 years (47 wooded acres with a log home) and downsized considerably.  Having a large wooded property sounds like paradise, but it is lot of work and it ties you down.  I am now free to move about and explore elsewhere! 

I had purchased a new to me 2008 Dodge Ram Diesel 3500 last fall in anticipation of getting a truck camper so that I can explore and camp anywhere.  I also wanted a nice pull behind camper, so that my male companion and I could travel together comfortably.   This truck is a great platform for any type of camper I want to use for the rest of my life.  So while perusing FaceBook market place, I ran across this 2014 White Water Retro 177 and had to take a look.  It is exactly what I am looking for in a pull behind camper!   

I have been reading your forums and may be doing the lift kit and increasing the size of the rims/tires as some have done, so that I don’t bottom out.  That was one of my concerns as I looked it over.  My friend has a T@B she pulls with a Subaru Outback and she has that issue at times (I think she is overloaded).   I am going to be looking at a generator too, to bolt into my pickup bed.  Otherwise, it is move in ready!   

I live in Iowa, and my girlfriend has a large cattle farm, so I’m going to “camp” at her place for a shakedown to check out everything. Between me, her and her husband, we should be able to fix anything that may crop up.   Then perhaps a road trip to North Carolina to visit my sister, who happens to be an electrician.  We will consider putting on some solar panels.  🙂  It’s good to know DIY people! 

Thanks so much to the Forum creator!  I understand the hours of thankless work put into website management.  I was a Systems Analyst for 30 years and now do genealogy as a hobby, work on folks computers for gas money and keep up a website for the East Iowa Ski Club.   Computers are fun, but so is the outdoors!
