When my wife and I started looking at campers we were totally not going to pay 145k, it just seemed to be ridiculous for a trailer. Then we started to look at what was available in the us. The quality and what we wanted was not made in the US. I came to the conclusion that I was not going to buy something I did not want, and would not give us what we wanted. The more we looked, the more that the price was palatable. If I were to buy a equal van with these features, I would spend 200k, and that would still left me with a van. With this set up, I can daily drive the tow vehicle, I can set up camp and have a capable off road truck to explore, I can tow my jeep when I want ETC. I think that in the long run, Crying once, and not every-time I look at what I bought is worth it.
