That's also a Toy Hauler, where 5200 lb axles and 15" Tires are necessary to get the weight rating to haul toys around. The OP is looking at a 27ft TT that has a Max weight of 7700 Lbs and an unloaded weight of 6200 lbs.

After our researching and purchase we found grey wolf to be a respectable entry level camper for the price point that we would have gotten, but liked the use of space (flush with floor slide and pass through storage) and features of the Cherokee limited a little more. Plus we found a dealer with an awesome price on the Cherokee.

Not to argue but OP had said something about entry level, then I gave my 2 cents
in what I thought was entry level as to look for. Don't get all wound up in this stuff, life is too short.

I really like our Grey Wolf 23DBH. I think they are well made. Would love to upgrade to a bigger and lighter TT.

Choosing the TT

Spend as much time researching the dealer as the TT. I did and it has paid off. I bought a Grey Wolf 26RR and have towed it 5,500 miles since March last year and have lived in it for 3 - 4 months over winter in FL and been on several other short trips. Very little trouble but it is the dealer who makes the difference between good and bad experiences. My dealer has been excellent so far.
Good luck to you.

This is our 6th season with our 26bh. We spend 30+ nights a year in it, including local camping and vacations. Been to Yellowstone, Myrtle beachX2, GettysburgX3, Rehoboth beach X2, etc. Have had 0 problems. Keep things maintained like tires, and wheel bearings and you should be fine.

The sales guy said the floor was very thin and that I should consider other lines. I tried to find some information concerning Grey Wolf construction on the web but not luck. I did call Forest River and only got voice mail. Any ideas on where to find what type of construction these are made up of? Thanks for any guidance you can provide.
I read this as a salesman looking to upsell you to a more profitable model. Most salesman are not going to steer you away from a sale unless they have something more profitable in mind. Camper quality will be mostly the same at similar price points. Higher the msrp the more quality and also the more potential profit. Also never fall for the 120-240 month low monthly payment finance plan. You will regret it.

I had/have a Cherokee first one was a lite 28A then we bought the bigger 32B. Both were/are very nice trailers. I consider hen mid level trailers. Lots of standard features that are optional on other trailers. Very solidly built. Some other ones we walked through I thought they would break once it was on the road. Floors hat weren't well supported, walls that were very thin and springy. Bed platform with no hinge or lift struts, etc. etc. etc.

28BH grey wolf

We bought a 2012 grey wolf this spring and absolutely love it. Even though it was pre owned everything works on it like new. Not disappointed with it at all. Much better made than the trail sport we had before it! Good luck.
