1st question... the old girl didn't come with a spare tire. Would a bumper mount holder be advisable? With the rear kitchen and front stowage I'm not sure about toung weight as we haven't been loaded to camp yet. Maybe I just need to throw it in the truck bed ?

Welcome! A bumper mount spare tire wouldn't be terrible, it isn't that much weight. It was pretty common to do that on most Sunline models from the factory. I'm sure you'll always have more weight up in the bedroom to offset the tire anyway.

I would recommend choosing the location of the carrier wisely- the bumpers aren't the strongest when the tire flexes. AKA toward one side is better than right in the middle. That said, don't block the water heater or license plate. I prefer going to the right side, as close as you can to the bumper mounting bracket as you can, without having the tire block the right taillight.

Welcome! Yes going from a tent to a camper is a big step and a much more comfortable one. Heads up, camping in the Sunny is addictive!

And to the purchasing things... Welcome to the club!!! Let's see if history repeats itself. You have a mental image of what you think you might need. You go out and buy a bunch of stuff. Come camping time, each campout you or the dear wife finds, gee I forgot that and another thing (generally another $20 something) works it way into the camper. By the end of the first year, you are pretty much set, but... there always seems to be something that keeps coming for the next few years. Come year 5, gee I have not used that thing in the last 5 years, need to take it out...

I'm right there with ya on looking for the green grass!! We normally winter camp, but this year we have a few too many project on this go. May not be until spring before.

Have fun with the camper!

John
