It does kinda make the Durango look small. The trailer is 31.5ft. The durango did alright pulling it though with the weight distribution bars set right. A few times going down hills the trailer tried to push its way past the durango. I just compensated by adding a bit more trailer brake pressure with the control box. It was definately a fine balancing act of throttle and brake to keep it going straight in the wind.

With the 5.9l engine, the Durango had more than enough pulling power to do the job. I was able to hold my own on the hills when climbing and barely lost speed. If I was going on a long trip I'd definately look at a different hitch setup with the sway control shocks.

We aren't planning any big trips this year with the camper. I plan on upgrading the durango to the newer version sometime in the next year. I don't like the latest version of the durango but the 2004-11 model is nice. I took one for a test drive a couple weeks ago. Went to the dealer to get a wiring harness for mine and found myself going for a test drive. It had the 5.7 hemi. Lots of power and very smooth. Ride was very nice.

We plan on building a storage shed and laying down some patio slabs then grassing whats left leaving room to park the boat and atv's and vehicles.
That's great. It means all the sites won't look the same. There's so much potential with a site that size. As I said before, "I love it".

We picked up a very nice used patio set for cheap yesterday to bring out there. I'm heading out for the day tomorrow to work at setting it up with the bbq, patio set, and some other odds n ends. Wish we could stay out this weekend but we have something in town going on sunday morning.

I just picked up a 12x8 ulitity trailer with ramp built on so we can haul the quads back and forth. I'm looking forward to going atving right from the camper this summer.

Score!!! We were looking for a fire pit to bring out to camp! Most of the city slickers that go out there are prim and proper and think that in order to have a fire pit, you have to go to a place like home depot and spend over $100 for some fancy metal thing that barely holds more then two split peices of wood. Not this guy. I called up one of the local tire shops looking for an old truck rim from a highway transport. That will be plenty big enough to make a nice size fire and contain it to a small area.
Best part of all...it's free!!!!

Congrats. Good score. That fire ring will outlast all those store bought 100 dollar ones (with the exception of that one that squerly's wife got him as a gift ...but it was a lot more than 100).

It's coming along nicely. I plan on doing a little more leveling of the ground in some areas then lay down some sod and build a little shed for storage.
