You should also look at the R-pods. 11 different floor plan configurations! They can sleep up to 4 adults. Several models have slides which give you additional room. This line is Forest River's high end small TT. It has all the amenities one wants; toilet, shower, full kitchen with Microwave/oven, A/C, multi fuel water heater and fridge, large dinette and nice entertainment center and some plans have outside shower/kitchen!

Also forgot the extra canopy that doubles the floorplan and allows you to picnic ouside in any weather.

I didn't read each post but some state and national parks allow only hard side (no canvas) campers due to bears getting inside the rig. Happy camping

The max towing weight is 8500lbs but I have read that I should be looking to stay 10-20% under that as a general rule.
We're not sure about new vs used but don't want to get too crazy on price either.
I prefer quality over fancy.
Looking for advice. The more I look on the internet, the more I get discouraged.

Help please....
We have been happy with our 2005 Rockwood 2601 towed with a 1999 GMC Yukon. I tow at 60 mph in third gear. Trailer GVWR is about 6500 but actual towing weight is about 5500. We do not tow with fresh water but fill up at our destination if we don't have a water hookup. One of these Rockwoods, or a similar trailer, would pair nicely with your Silverado plus give you tow capacity to spare. It has bunk beds too!
