Just my opinions, the Vibes are (were) a bit more expensive than other TT's in the light weight class. In part, due to the aluminum frame and laminate/foam construction. Compared to the Jayco Swifts (conventional "stick and tin" construction), which looked to be of equivalent fit, finish, and equipment, but sell for thousands less than the Vibes. We bought a 6501 just before Christmas on a closeout deal ($14000) and could have purchased the same size/equipped Swift for $12000 before negotiations. The Vibe looks like a reworked horse trailer-people are not always comfortable with something unconventional. We bought the Vibe for specific reasons; the huge, pass-thru underbed storage-which necessitates stepping up into the bed (a common complaint we hear when camping is how much folks hate climbing up into bed), the large fridge (for this size camper), the 80" ceiling height. Plus, I can tow it with my discontinued Toyota FJ!
