Which is better,wolfpup or clipper?

We have narrowed or tt search down to the 2017 wolf pup 16 bhs or the Coachmen Clipper 17 BH. I really like the aesthetics and finishes of the wolfpup. Can anyone tell me the major construction differences between the 2? The clipper is also slightly lighter in weight. We have never owned a tt, only pop ups and that was long ago. Thank you for any info. The dealership, which sells both, stated that the wolf pup is sturdier, but didn't state what makes it sturdier. Thanks.

You might want to post what you'll be towing with and its specs.

Another wolf pup question

I have not actually measured but is the box size ( not including hitch) the same as the name..16 bhs would be 16 feet? I did not measure and am curious if any wolfpup bhs owners could tell me. Also of the coachmen clipper 17 BH. With the wolf pup the total exterior length is 21 ft 5 inches but I would like to know the interior dimensions. Thank you!

16 and 17 foot interior is probably a good ball park. The naming is a little confusing from brand to brand...sometimes total length is in the model, sometime interior length. Coachman's website lists the 17BH as 21-4 end to end, so almost identical sizes. Hitch / A frame / spare are generally about 5' on bumper pulls, so that sounds about right.

Having been a dealer for many years...do yourself a big favor and look at the jayco products before you make a purchase. better quality, and better warranty

Why? That has nothing to do with his question.

I have a 2016 16bhs wolf pup. The box measures about 18 feet. I can find nothing that measures 16 feet, like floor length, without bathroom etc. The hitch adds about 3 feet. The bumper and spare tire adds some also. The specs shows exterior length of 21'5".

because one of the two might be a better fit, than the other one, for the tow vehicle the OP has.
