EVO T2050 build quality / livability
Lately I've been looking into getting back into the RV Market. I would need a trailer for a bit of a unique situation. The basics:
-I Would be living in the trailer during work, for 5-25 days a month. Work is 12 hour shifts, not inside the trailer. Would be in the trailer the other 12 hours. I estimate annual usage is 175-225 days, with time in between spent at home in my large house.
-I Would move the trailer after every job, usually 100 miles or so, rarely 400 miles
-Trailer would be used year-round in Northern NM / Southern CO
-Water and sewage are taken care of on site, with basically no propane or electricity limits (very large generator, water and propane tanks available)
-Would be towed down 5-15 mile dirt roads maybe once monthly.
-Tow Vehicle has 7700 lb rating
I love the airstreams, but have pretty much ruled them out thanks to the helpful people at airforums.com. The artic foxes are just to heavy.
So the most suitable one I've found so far is a forest river Evo T2050. It's got 2 slides and is well within limits for my tow vehicle. The local dealer has one and I can work out a pretty decent deal. I like the interior space, although I'm concerned that it's "to good to be true" if you know what I mean.
My main concern is build quality. In the past I've owned an Excel, which was great, but again, I don't want to buy a bigger tow vehicle. I'm familiar with the winter living stuff (insulated and heated hoses, etc) and propane and electric is provided on site, as it black / grey water management.
Any advice or insight on how the FR Evo T2050 will stand up to year round use as much as 200 days / year ? The company provides a per diem of $70 for RVs, so it'll have to last more than 345 days to pay for itself.
