If I recall from my previous research the 3030 and 3250 is a 10" beam and the others are 12".

Each have their positives and negatives. Both use aluminum frame 16 on center . If you go on the Cardinal website it shows the different components used in construction R factors and floor plans. I don't think one is better then the other . I have seen just as many problems on either. Most are just the usual new trailer fixits.

I just love it when people talk technical.. LOL

Hey turbo max, I'm sorry if I offended you. I was just making a joke. That's what emoticons are for I certainly was not trying to disparage your post or knowledge. I just had to look up a couple of words to figure out what you were talking about. Sorry man, don't leave because of me....

My Cardinal has rounded steps going to bedroom and two tone trim on the inside. I think the quality is about the same on both but that is just from reading up on both.

Sorry, we have no reps here from Cardinal nor CC, let alone any FR engineers!
