What made you choose your camper?

We have a grey wolf 26bh.We chose it because we love the floor plan.When we first started looking we were dead set on a least one slide out.We went from 5th wheels to regular travel trailers and back and forth even looking at rvs because our budget allowed it. But our camper is perfect proof that you don't have to have a slide out if you get the right floor plan. We love our camper it has everything we need and more. Due to the money we saved we got a nice 2013 Toyota tundra crewmax to pull it. We are so glad we made the decision we did its only 3 of us and the camper is a great way to get away and camp without "roughing" it.

What made you choose your travel trailer fifth wheel or rv?

We love the v-nose trailers and when we found the front kitchen, we knew that was the one for us. With the kitchen up in the nose the living space is really open and with the atrium windows, lots of light. It's just the two of us 95% of the time so we have plenty of room but can accommodate company on the queen sofa bed. Easy to pull and sets up quickly. Can't think of needing anything more.

for us it was floor plan, exterior look, bathroom, price, fireplace, floor, furniture, windows, door, exterior colors/decals, drawers under bed.... there were so many things that we liked (and we weren't really shopping for a new one) Still after the first season ..... not much to it that I don't like!!!

Weight was a huge factor when we originally looked then look plan. Now that we purchased 3/4 ton pick up the future is wide open!

I'm on a modest income and didn't want payments so budget played a big role. A close second would be the TT weight among with fitting my needs.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

For was the construction, weight, floorplan and the fact that it had bunk beds for our Grandchildren. The size is perfect for our needs..

We also did a LOT of searching and research. In the end it was floorplan, contruction and company's reputation (i.e stand behind their product and give great customer service).

For us, it started with weight because of the limited capacity of our TV. Then moved on to options and floor plan. Wasn't until we actually picked our pop up that we realized how good the floor plan was. Now we have a new TV and the DW wants a different TT! Can we wait to try and pay this down please?
