I agree with Twisty - when doing extensive shopping for our most recent TT, the key differences I noticed in those marketed as "Ultra Lite" was the price.

A similarly equipped TT that was Ultralite would cost several $1000s higher than the same size/equipment standard version. And would buy you maybe 1000 - 1500 lbs weight difference for the sizes we were looking at.

In looking for our first TT, we didn't look at the prices...we looked at the GVWR. Because we were going to be pulling with an existing vehicle and wanted a more spacious TT, we looked at the ultra lights. We got a Flagstaff 26rls and pulled with a 2002 Chevy Suburban 1500. We love the quality of the interior, the features we got, and have had no issues with the construction of the trailer. Yes, the lite trailers only hold 1200 to 1500 pounds of cargo, but how much stuff does a person actually pack into a trailer in the first place. Yeah, 3000 pounds of CCC sounds more impressive, but how much would that be? We have since bought a 2012 Ford F150 Ecoboost. It pulls the TT like a dream, but now we are looking at longer TT's, and would go ultralites again.
