redline

After really enjoying our dirt bikes for a few years, last summer we decided to invest more in our new hobby and took a leap in getting something the whole family would enjoy… a camper trailer!

We shopped around for a few months, and finally decided on a used 2007 Redline 230FSE Toy Hauler. It was big enough to hold the toys (and then some), plus sleep the whole family (and then some), and had some nice comforts.

One important factor was finding something that we could actually tow. I wasn’t going to go buy a new vehicle with a big tow capacity, so I was limited by what my 2003 Expedition 5.4 Triton could handle… 8900 lbs. (weight distributed). The trailer’s Dry Weight is 5,505 lbs., so as long as I didn’t max out the cargo and fill up the water tanks, the truck could handle it (though just barely). The trailer’s Gross Weight is 9,995 lbs.

Here is what the floor plan looks like:

And the promotional blurb:

Rear Ramp Door to 8 Ft. 11 In. Toy Parking Space, Queen Loft or Opt. Queen Electric Bunks, 2 Sofa Sleepers w/Table Between, Refrig./Pantry, 3 Burner Range, Wardrobe, Double Kitchen Sink, Tub/Shower, Lav., Front Queen Bed w/Nightstand, Pass-Thru Storage, Flip-Up TV Shelf & Much More

It’s been sitting covered in storage now for 6 months. We can hardly wait to take it out again. Hopefully Mother Nature will be kind this summer and give us lots of sunny weekends.

For more info on the trailer, here is a page a specs I put together: 2007-Redline-230FSE.doc

And a .pdf I found from Fleetwood on the Redline series: 2007_RL_sp.pdf

    Hope you finally got out and had tons of fun with your Fleetwood Redline Toy Hauler. It’s beautiful! I really feel your pain about not wanting to have to purchase another vehicle, too.
