My 2010 long bed dually with 409 cubic inch Cummins diesel hauls the 4,000 camper so easily you almost don't know it is there.
The camper is comfortable for one person and my two dogs on my trips from SC to NY and
I have had my girlfriend spend a few weekends
in the camper.
Even though it has a slide out it is still a bit cramped,
I am amazed they can fit all that stuff in the back of a pick up.
I haven't seen a slide in used in a short bed but I have a feeling it will be very cramped for space.
The slide in offers a lot of advantages over a pull behind but,
I don't think I could handle living in it for a month or more so I am planning to get a 5th wheel for a two month trip next summer.
I honestly don't think I could handle living in a T/C for a few weeks or a month
Maybe if you are going to be out hunting all day
and are just looking for a warm place to sleep and are moving up from sleeping in a tent it will be a big step up
The seats and table slide out, the picture was taken
with the slide out extended.
The table converts to a bed so you can fit 4 people but even two adults and two small kids would be crazy.
