New Forum & Forest River

Hi from California,
I'm thinking of buying a used travel trailer. I have traveled in a motorhome, fifth wheel and trailer. I'm down-sizing and would like to stay under 29 ft. I will probably buy a used rig as I'm almost 80 and travel alone (meet-ups with friends here and there) so may not have enough years left to justify a new purchase. ::feedback

Welcome to the forum from MN. We bought a Grey Wolf 23MK last Oct and love it so far. Kids are grown so we weren't looking for bunk beds, it's a rear living model. Big window in back, 1 slide, 28.8 ft, 5100lbs dry as a point of reference.
Good luck with the search.

thanks for the welcome

I have a GMC Sierra 2500HD 4WD. I know I can pull a larger trailer but don't need the hassle of a bigger rig and want to fit into some smaller spaces. Used to haul a 35' Alfa fiver - too big & too heavy for me now.
I'm goin to look at a 2007 25' Forest River Wildcat T25 w/ slide this coming week and wonder if its in good shape if its a reliable rig. I've heard good things about Forrest River products.
