Our latest Shasta

This past weekend we pulled the trigger and are downsizing our 25BH to an 18BH Oasis. Our new tow vehicle didn't handle the 29' 25BH like I hoped, so we've elected to cut off 7' and get the 21'9" 18BH. We're getting it through Mount Comfort RV and they have one currently at the Indy RV Expo in Indianapolis that runs through this coming Sunday. Looking forward to getting back to my roots and getting smaller!

Thanks Laura! I checked out the two at the dealership we have to pick from, and I found out the newest of the two has a beefier axle on it. So instead of 546 lbs of cargo capacity, the one we're getting has 1403 lbs. Shasta is putting the heavier axle on the 18BH and 18FQ because the Flyte is coming out with the same floorplans this spring and they had to put those on the heavier axle, or else their cargo capacity would've been in the 200-300 lbs range. Instead of carrying two different axles, they decided to carry the one and also put it on the Oasis.

What a great upgrade. That makes these TT's even more of a good deal.

Just bought my Shasta Flyte 185FQ at the RV show in Ocala Fl this weekend. I'm getting an enclosed underbelly put on it so I can stay in Yellowstone early spring to early fall. Can't wait! It is the perfect size. I had the Shasta Revere a few years ago but got tired of dragging around a step stool to reach into the cabinets. It was crazy tall. First thing I did was make sure I can reach into the cabinets in the Flyte!

Congrats on your new Shasta. Very Nice!

I couldn't help myself. I seen a Cruise Lite sitting next to it in your pictures, so I went to the Dealers website ( Mount Comfort RV ) and took a gander at both TT's.

We recently purchased a Cruise Lite 171RBXL ( same as on the dealers lot ) from a dealer here in Illinois. In comparison, of the 2 TT's, other than we have the dual axle, we have the same size. I really enjoy this size, it works well for us and not a great burden on our tow vehicle. Easy road handling for those longer trips. A definite plus!

You will definitely enjoy the feel of towing this TT much more, compared to your other.

Once again Congrats., and Happy Camping!
