A 30' trailer is a big trailer when you start trying to find a site to camp on. My brother has a 32' TT and his step daughter now lives in it at his house. He bought a smaller TT because there were only a couple site that it would fit on at his favorite campground. There are some sites his 27' TT will not fit on. I've seen many large TTs damaged trying to get though the camp ground not to mention the even more damaged trying to get into a tight site. Careful digging your heals in with your wife, it usually isn't worth it. PUPs do handle T-storms pretty well, we've ridden out some really nasty ones. A Trailmanor is probably going to be the best compromise for your situation. When the grandkids are grow we're getting a Trailmanor. We want either a 2720QS or 2720QD. They offer less sleeping room, but more living space. There's only going to be two of us and a queen bed is plenty big enough for us. If you must have a king bunk you'll have to step up to a 2922 series.
