    Hello all !
    Been a long time since I've posted anything, but I've been lurking here and there. My wife and I have been talking today about the amount of work our PUP needs (rebuild roof, cabinets,etc.). I just don't have the gumption, And '92 Coleman parts are running thin.
    I've been looking at 17 or 18 foot HTT's, and I like them alot.
    My TV is an '07 Nissan Armada - pulls 9100 lbs. (non-issue).
    I'm thinking of these little guys because it's just the DW and I, and we don't need a ton of camper. I had a 21 foot TT years ago, and I really miss the bathroom, and not cranking it up and down, loading and unloading...

    Who's had or has one of there little ones? Pro's and cons ? Would you go a different route, or are you pleased with your purchase ? Thanks in advance !

    I have one and enjoy it. If I was buying today I'd buy a 17' bunk house TT.

    I have an HTT that is 21 ft, 3 popouts. We love it and have camped twice as much as we did with the pup. We have 3 kids. If it were just my wife and I, we may opt for TT instead. Less hassle with drying/airing out the canvas when we get home.

    We moved to a travel trailer and love it.
    Coachman Clipper 17FQS at 3178 dry. Pull with a Toyota Tacoma. Limited space sometimes but worth it.

    If you want something that size I would personally go with something like a Roo 19. It is smaller but still has the double axle and has a sofa (to me this makes a big difference for some reason). I have seen them pulled by Ford Escapes so it should be fine behind your Armada. Good luck with your decision, happy camping!

    We found a Jayco X23U which has the slide out wall where a queen size hide a bed resides, it is a bit heavier at 5K but still a Jayfeather. Loads of room and storage except outside, only about a 12" area across the front. End of the season you should start finding deals on last year models. New model would be X23B I think.

    I love the X23B & X23U both! Very nice floor plans and tons of room!! Have looked at both but don't think the pooch and I need quite that much camper!

    I totally agree on going with a double axle. It tows much better, offers some safety and security if you blow a tire, and you don't need to stress about every pound of cargo you put into the trailer as you have more of a buffer.
