Travel Trailers Info

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone.

Currently we have  Heartland Landmark 40' fifth wheel. 

We have been talking about leaving the Landmark here in FL at our snowbird location.

Talking about getting a TT to travel around the country in. Thinking about maybe a 24' or so in length.

The reason, we want to be able more easily to get into state and federal parks which usually have smaller spaces. and to be able to travel the back

roads and stay off the interstates.

My Sweetheart does all the driving, since I am nearly blind. I want to make it as easy as possible for her to get us places.

Not looking for a brand new TT. A used one will be just fine.

Ihave been looking online at some tailers. Holiday Rambler.

My question: What are the names of the brands models that were built in the 2000/ 2015 time period. I do not know mch agout TT brands.

I have only had truck campers, motor homes and fifth wheels.

What are your experiences on which brand/model that you have had over the years.

We are really excited about doing this.

Thanks for any info that you can share.

Bill

Lots of decent options for you; many of them would be familiar names from fifth wheels.  For what you're looking for it really depends on what you want to spend.  I've heard good things about the Winnebago travel trailers.  Of course there are others that you would recognize like Heartland, Lance, Jayco, etc.  Best bet is search the floor plans and see what seems to suit you and then VERY carefully inspect the trailer.  A lot depends on what you want to spend.  An Airstream is VERY nice but also very expensive.

My wife and I travel around in our Camplite 21BHS which is excellent for us.  Unfortunately, Thor bought out LivinLite the manufacturer of Camplites and took them downhill and out of production.

Our daughter and hubby have a Winnebago Minnie Plus, travel trailer and it has been good to then aside from a few trim issues.  Seems to be better built than most in that size range.

Lance and Arctic Fox get good reports compared to the Thor and Forest River products.

We have seen a couple Olivers and Escapes.  They are pricey, but seem well built.

The Olivers are really interesting.  I'd like to tour their factory in TN some day.
