Need suggestion for TT

Parents want to get a TT now. They want it to be:

-1/2 ton towable (ball hitch only)
-sleep 4+
-have good sized beds (actual bed and fold down bed or dinette bed)
-no inflatable couch beds! (we are not kids lol)
-no pop outs but slides are fine.
-decent bathroom (shower, sink and toilet in a good layout)
-one bathroom
-as many convinces as possible (power awning and jacks etc)

so anyone got some good suggestions??


Edit: forgot to mention no bunks.. sorry!

I'd recommend checking out the Prime Time website. I'm sure you've seen the reviews on here.

Also check out the Windjammer line by Rockwood. Some very nice units. We have a 2008 3001w with no major issues. We have towed this unit from Ont. to BC and back. We averaged 10.5 miles per gal with the F150.

I think they should first understand what half ton towable means to them.

Are they looking for a wet weight of under 5000lbs, under 7500 lbs or can they tow 9500 lbs?

Depending on the truck, engine, axle, etc, a recommendation would differ.

im guessing somewhere around the 7500lbs mark based on the guidelines mother gave me. no way something like we looked at would weigh in under 5k

I recommend...

The Rockwood Mini-Lite 2304.
The bathroom is awesome, larger than many more exspensive units. Sleeps 4. My unit weighs 3750lbs. I tow with a 4.3L Chevy 6 cylinder truck no problem. My unit has lots of extras and even more can be added. I like it. But everyone has their own criteria. Good luck, Happy Camping.
