With that question you will get more answers and opinions than you will have time to read.  You need to be a little more specific, ie. will you use it year around, will you be staying just overnight or for longer periods, do you want lightweight or big and spacious, are you looking for affordability or high quality...the list goes on.  I would suggest give as many more details on what you are looking for as you can.

 

rl_sd beat me to it.

The two questions that will help narrow this down quickest:

 

1) How much do you want to spend?

 

2) What kind of lift system do you want?  Crank? Electric? Hydraulic?

Thanks guys!

I have 2 kids in hockey for 1 more year. So maybe will get out twice this year. But next year I plan on every other weekend. And stay overnight in it. Probably only 2 nights at a time.

 

As far as camper we use ours now on maybe 2 out of town trips. Other wise it stays at the in-laws cabin on rainy lake all summer.

 

I only have 1/2 ton pickup and don't want to go to big with fish house. 16- 18 seem to be fine for the 4 of us in our family.

 

I want to spend the money now and get one that will last a while!

If 4 people is a regular occurrence, you'll find the 16' gets really tight.  Especially if there are any taller people.  The traditional dinette/top bunk in the back is fine, but its a struggle to get good length on the secondary bunks in the 16' houses.

 

Knowing that price isn't the #1 concern, here's my recommendation:
-In a 16' house, I'd go Yetti/Firebrand every time.  The all aluminum construction is sweet, and there's a bunch of these out there, with very few problems.  

-17' will get you into an Ice Castle RV edition with hydraulic lift and galvanized frame.  

-With 4 people, I'd suggest looking into the 20/21' models.  This opens up a ton of options.

way too small. 6x12 is the biggest they make

 

For $12,500, if I remember right.  That's at least a Yetti shell.

 

Edit.  $18k.  Wow.

    • Light Beer, pffffft! Kind of like the fat lady ordering 4 Big Macs, 3 orders of fries and a diet soda. 
    • So what's better? I suppose you are going to say Coors light or Miller lite?
    • Pair of loading ramps. Weight capacity is 700 pounds each. Very good condition. $50.00 for the pair. Live near Elk River MN
    • ....said no one ever.....😁
    • You want to read High Speed 1 at pins 6 and 14 of the DLC. HS CAN 2 is on pins 3&11. Some fords have Medium Speed CAN on pins 3&11. Keep this in mind when shopping for your reader.
    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
