My wife and I have 4 kids and we spent about 4 years looking at 33 - 35 ft trailers. She was worried there would not be enough storage or space with anything shorter. She finally agreed to a 30 ft model that we took delivery on last week. We have spent a few days packing it up for us and the kids and she told me she was glad we did not get anything longer. Our model has a super slide, so we got the room by going wide, not long.

FreddieMac, what model did you end up getting? A deep slide is a definite must. I want either a 80" long queen bed or a 74" without anything against the foot of the bed.

Prothos, we've looked at the Mini Lites and although I like the 2503S, DW doesn't want a murphy bed.

We are now considering the Rockwood 2608WS (or its twin Flagstaff 26FKWS) and the Surveyor SP-275RBS, but we really wish we could figure an option to have the Rockwood 2703WS (or its twin Flagstaff 27RLWS).

Fondly remembered:

2009 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew, 5.4L, 4x4, 5'6" bed (2012 - 2016)

There is a lot of room for a family of 6 at 4k lbs and 30 feet.

I pull ours to a truck wash, the kind that washes those big semi trucks and trailers. They do our 5er top to bottom for $40.00 including wiping it down, worth every penny to me. All the work / mods I do to it gets done at the storage lot. No power there for my use so my generator does the trick when I need power out there.
