Our first TT was only 14'. Had to make the dinette into a bed and had to crawl over the other person to get up in the night. Had a v6 ranger for a TV that limited the size.
We now have a 2011 F-150 Super Crew and doubled the size of the trailer. We now have a 2014 Palomino Puma 25RS. Like you there is only 2 of us (plus 2 kitties) so we didn't want a bunkhouse model. DW demanded good wardrobe space which the 25RS has. I wanted ducted a/c and heat which we now have. We wanted a walk around queen bed and got that. I wanted a stove/oven which we got that but is sometimes an option. Two door frig which I got. Power awning standard (19'). All interior lights are LED standard. It will sleep 6 if necessary but not in my lifetime. I wanted 2 entry doors, (for safety reasons) if the there is a fire in the kitchen I didn't want to have to go out of a bedroom window and same if there is a fire in the bedroom. Lastly, I did not want a slide, simply because I wanted easy setup and breakdown and limit the water leak problems. And without a slide I have more options on camp sites.
A little off subject but years ago (I'm 75) a guy I worked with said never call on a married girl that lives in a trailer with one door. I don't have to be concerned about that now after 54 years of marriage.
It is at the max length I would accept, 28'. Dry weight is 5,100# so adding another 1,000# it is well under the max towing capacity of the TV. It tows well and I know it's behind me but not being taxed to the max. Price was reasonable at slightly over $15,000 where I purchased (plus tax).
DW is very happy with it and keeps telling me about it. I didn't know how she would adapt to RVing since previously her idea of roughing it was a black & white tv at a Holiday Inn. If mama ain't happy ain't no body happy.
I took it back to the dealer for a little warranty work a couple days ago. A couple drawers would not open, dinette table was positioned to close to the window blind and we couldn't raise it so they move it over a couple inches. They said they have been selling Pumas for 10 years and of all the manufacturers they sell for the Puma has the least problems and said they seldom see them again (what else would they say to a customer). But I studied manufacturers for quite a while and also felt that the Palomino Puma seemed to the best built of that style TT. I know no manufacturer produces a problem free product, just wanted to keep it at a minimum.
