After buying a 3/4 ton Chevy Suburban to tow our
travel trailer with, it was only justified to buy a
bigger camper. In 1990, we bought a 1989 Mallard
Sprinter, 29'7" tow behind unit. It was
only a year old and we were told that the former
owners only used it twice and traded it because they
were uncomfortable with it because it was so
big. We bought that story because the ice cube
trays and oven broiler had never been taken out of
their cellophane wrapping.
It fit our needs very well at the time. It
had a two-berth bunkhouse in the back for the girls
and a fold-out sofa for David, Jr.
We towed this
unit cross-country in 1993, a total of 9979
miles. Over a six week period, it rolled through
22 states on our way to California and back. We
took day trips to two other states on that vacation
and it also saw at least six other states during the
time we owned it.
