XLR vs Wolfpack

I am looking at purchasing a Toy Hauler, my thought is that if for some reason I need to travel for work I will already have a place to live and can be easily mobile if need be. This of course is worse case scenario. Other than that I want a trailer for Sturgis, Hunting, and just trips.

I am really interested in the Nitro XLR 305 and have had it optioned and priced out at what I consider a decent price. However I just stumbled onto the 285wolfpack toy hauler that has a larger garage and seems to be cheaper. What are the biggest differences between the two that one might not be able to see by looking at pictures and spec sheets.

I appreciate any and all information and even opinions that will help me with my decision.

Respectfully,

When we looked at the two we ended up with the 305 XLR. The wolfpack had less cargo capacity and only 6 lug axles (6000lb). The XLR has 8 lug (7000lb) axles, I do not like the idea of being so close to max on the axle ratings. The wife liked the interior on the XLR better also.

Having had a couple of campers and looking at hundreds of them, the deciding factor for me is this: what is the best floorplan for what I plan to do? Go see them and walk through them, thinking of yourself camping and road traveling.

Exactly this. We looked at all of them including the exact ones you listed. We originally had planned on getting 5er (we've had them in the past and love them) but when we saw the Stealth floor plan we fell in love with it. Happy searching!
