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.Just a recommendation, if at all possible look for something in that size in a 2 axle trailer. You'll be happier overall, for several reasons. When I first bought my little popup in 2009 like everybody else I started planning for and looking at my next camper. For about 5 years it was going to be the Jayco X17Z, the more I learned about that model and travel trailers in general, the more I moved away from the X17Z. Yes, it's lightweight but also doesn't hold much load capacity, for example it's probably not great for a family with 2 adults, 3 kids, and all their gear, etc. Also the dump pipe for your tanks is very low to the ground which means you need to be really carful with bumps etc. Also, generally speaking, single axle trailers don't have things like an over, or larger refrigerator. They tend to have a wet bath rather then a bathroom. When I finally did upgrade to a travel trailer 10 years later, I had moved away from hybrids altogether, but that was more a personal preference for a regular bed. Mind you being empty nesters we only need to sleep 2. I ended up buying a Grand Design 17MKE, still in the same overall length range but a much sturdier trailer offering much more comforts. Basically what I'm saying is try to get as muck camper as you can within your budget.
