Generally true, but the 2nd axle often means it's considerably heaver. Make sure your TV is up to the task. Ultimately I chose a single axle is to avoid the binding when backing into tight sites with sharp angles in the mountains. The lighter weight was an added plus with the amount of time we spend in the mountains. Tandem axle trailers are often sturdier built and many also have a slide for added room. My brother kept telling me that I need a slide, but I really don't. If I'm in the camper other than to sleep the weather got bad. Go spend an hour or so in various campers that you are contemplating with your usual camping crew, at some point your going to spend some time sheltering from the weather.
