Also with most ToyHaulers you really need a Dual Wheel Diesel as most are Heavy and Pin Weight is higher then most Single Axles can handle if you load a toy in the garage.

I have a 2016 F350 PSD Crew Short Box and my max is 16,000 and Pin 3650, so Small TH's are like 2800 Hitch and 14,000 dry, doesn't leave much room. I just bought my truck so trading for an F350/450 Dually, wouldn't be smart for me, and I really don't need to pay more for something I don't really need right now.

All of the prep for a fifth wheel, let alone a toy hauler, made our decision that much easier. The 3200BHT Tracer is basically a fifth wheel style floor plan without the height so it works perfect for us

We just bought a 2014 Prime Time Avenger BH. We are very new to trailer camping our only other camper was a 1963 Shasta Astrodome that we used one season but it had no water or gas so it was really just rolling beds. Looking forward to picking up our camper in a few weeks!

It helped that we had a trade-in and our youngest son works for them. I really like all the extra storage and larger frig/freezer. We also have a king bed, but this makes the walk space very tight in the bedroom. My husband is on the large side, (the result of 47+ years of my cooking) so he almost has to crawl in from the foot of the bed. There are pros and cons, nothing is perfect. Over all we like it. Just trying to make it past the "break in" period. Trying to figure out how to organize all our "stuff" and our three Siberian Huskies comfortable with new sleeping arrangements. They all think they must sleep real close to Dad and Mom. It's making for some challenging nighttime trips to use the bathroom, tip toe thru the huskies.

Are you having issues or you just don't like that model? Curious not trying to pry bc we just bought a 2013 Crusader 295 RST Touring Edition and I was looking for one of these for 2-3 years and we love the layout. Had to do some minor repairs and did some upgrades and Maintenance but overall decent.

We like the layout of our rig with the rear kitchen. We got a 2016 model in 6/16. First trip out the underbelly filled with water. During manufacturing they did not connect the shower drain to the grey tank. Got that fixed and on the next trip out the inside flooded twice and the underbelly filled up again. By the time we got home from vacation the floor in the den area was getting soft spots. About 6 weeks later FR PT replaced the trailer with a new 2017 model same floor plan. First trip out the underbelly filled with water. Shower drain not connected to grey tank. I now have a warped wall and a warped floor. Between the highest spot in the floor and the lowest I can stack about 5 quarters under the straight edge. FR PT refuse to repair. Told me since my slides go in and out and the warped floor and wall don't keep me from camping just use it!

Had one of those before I got the Crusader. I had towing issues with it. Advertised as half ton towable but my F150 ecoboost with max trailer tow package would not pull it. Plenty of power but all over the road. Tried two WD hitches but still had issues. No major issues with the trailer except the TV went out on the first trip. If I had to choose I would take my LaCrosse back any day over this bucket of bolts I have now...especially since my Tow vehicle is now an F250 power stroke

We sometimes realize the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the block .

I made that mistake trading my Shasta in for a Hybrid albeit not like issues you had but after I did that it was a 🤦*♂️ SMH moment
