I am not sure one brand is going to be much different than another as far as quality goes.

We thouroughly enjoy our 27' toy hauler.

I guess if we wanted top quality we would have spent a hundred thousand and bought an Airstream.
Never enough camping!!

I agree with the idea that it's all in the eye of the beholder. My wife and I have a Rockwood 2304S, and we wouldn't trade it for anything (except maybe a toyhauler).

Why not start a (Perfect Trailer) Rally! You could hold it in a 7/11 parking lot and still have room to put your slides out! Youroo!!

Personally, I think the quality of smaller trailers is better. 20 to 25 feet is the sweet spot. The really small trailers and popups are built to be really cheap/affordable. The really big trailers have alot of bells and whistles to justify the higher price. Also, I think they bend and twist alot and therefore have all the problems that come with that.

The Surveyor line has some nice models and seem to be screwed together pretty well, and the prices are more reasonable than some others.

I have a 2012 V-Cross 275 fiver and I am happy with it, but I wouldn't compare it to the high end fivers that Forest River makes. I got mine for $28,000 and it has two ACs, 50 amp and a few other options. But how could you compare it to one of those $70,000 fivers. You can't. Good luck

Does FR make such a thing?
Not a TT, but for everything else on your list the Forest River Dynamax fits the bill.

How much money do you have?

The best one FR makes is the one you've owned for a couple years and have replaced all the cheap components and redone the poor workmanship on....

My experience has shown that the best TT Forest River makes, of for that matter, the best truck, house and anything else, is the one just beyond what I can afford.
