Prospective light weight owner

My wife and I are considering buying an ultra lite trailer to pull behind our Nissan Frontier rated at 5000 lbs. We think we have narrowed the search down to two Forest River products; the R-Pod 179 or the Rockwood mini lite 1905. Would welcome opinions or reviews on either, or any other suggestions for that matter.

We have previously owned a fifth wheel and a diesel pusher but want something smaller, and simpler. Our trips are usually 3 to 4 days. We have 2 dogs, the largest is 35 lbs. Both ae good campers.

The Rockwood without a doubt. You have a better bathroom and a bed that you don't have to crawl over someone to get into and out. in addition, when you are stuck in the camper due to weather, you have the option to fold up your bed and sit on the sofa opening up the area.

One other thing, i would prefer the double axles over a single axle any day.
