Welcome to the forum, lots of good info on here. We had a Palomino PUP that we traded in for a used tt this past January. I still go back to the other forum that I belong to that had mostly PUP info, I read and make comments. We have found out that when you go from tent camping, to a PUP and then to a tt they are certain things that are a little different.

just found this site as well.....cool.
We bought our 205MAC after the sky rocketing fuel prices and didnt want to lug a heavy 5th wheel around.
Great camper and with my wifes Dodge Journey and the trailer fully loaded we are still getting 16.5 MPG in the hills of the Ozarks.

We have a 228D model and love it. It tow well is roomy and is a piece of cake to set up. The only draw back may be taking it down in the rain. the slide for the dinette is great as it gives you so much more floor space. Enjoy
