Wolf Pup 16FQ

I have tried searching a couple of different ways but have not seen any information on the Cherokee Wolf Pup 16FQ. I am looking into getting one for my wife and I so the smaller one will work fantastic. It looks similar to the 16BHS except a few of the options. I am completely new to travel trailers but we share a spot with some friends that have had one for a couple seasons now. I figure its time to turn in the tent and get a camper for ease of use. We will leave it parked on location and have access to electrical. Just thought I would register and start looking through these threads just like I did for my Toyota and work from there.

Congrats on your decision. We just got our Wolf Pup 16bhs and we really like it. I pull it with a 4door Jeep Wrangler with a harbor freight weight distribution hitch. It pulls and stops great. We really liked the fit and finish of it compared to comparable floor plans. I recently saw on the forum that someone got a Coachman Clipper 17bh which almost identical to mine. The clipper 17fq is similar to what your looking at with an additional 5" in width. I'd give them a look. I can share more info from my shopping if you want. Just ask.

Thanks for the information bakwoodj. I noticed that as well. It was finally warm enough to check out a few in person this past weekend and I think I am sold on the Clipper 17Fq. It has a really nice vanity in the bathroom. We have a trip coming up soon so I will make our decision after that.

I really like the outside of the Wolfpup but the inside of the Coachman RV clipper is nicer. Plus its a 16' vs a 17' so I am leaning the way of the Clipper right now. Plus Camping world just showed me a Coleman 21' with a couch and dinette option that I can pull with a tandem axle. It's a bit more weight but I only need to pull it twice a year. So many decisions. I like them all but just trying to get the most for my money.

What was nicer about the clipper? The Viking I think it's similar? We like the Wolf pup because of weight but I keep seeing complaints of leaking issues. Red flag? I like you are trying to decide. I have a Ford escape XLT V6 tow cap 3500. I appreciate your input. We are new to this, we had a Little Guy teardrop.

So to further answer your question: Pros: Wolf pup is a good trailer with great amenities and very cost effective for what you get. Cons: Its single axle so if your pulling it a lot a blow out can be a fun experience, its shorter than the clipper for same price range, the clipper has an awesome vanity in bathroom(big deal for wife). We are also new to TT so research to the fullest and read through these threads. Even the ones that don't apply to your brand. Some of the complaints or concerns are universal and do apply.

The clipper has the extra foot of length, it might not seem like much but you feel it. The stainless steel appliances are really nice. 3500 lbs is not much so you may not be able to look at the Coleman that I referred to. Its dry weight is 4600 lbs or something like that. The Viking just seemed like not much for the money when compared to the other two in the same class. I'd rather get a clipper or a wolf pup for the cash.
