I looked at Mini Lite, Geo Pro/E-Pro and No Boundaries and initially settled on a Mini Lite because of the "build quality" and "material choice looks". This was first on-line and then in person. I listed them in the highest order based on that and of course features.

My storage options later limited me up to 20' and settled on the 16BH since Mini Lite's aren't quite that mini, and have been happy for what RVs are. I personally didn't like the styling or feel of materials on the NoBo series.

Some claim the NoBos are decent at "off-road" but I'd actually go elsewhere if you're really looking for that.

Good luck and go for what you need/want. I'd definitely look at them in person locally, even if it's not the exact version.

the way I decided on mine is I imagined I was camping for 2 weeks and it rained 90% of the time
was I happy at looking at a fridge / stove

or get a layout like a Rear living with lots of windows etc


lots of windows....Rear living won the day.


added stuff that I figured was missing....... which thankfully was not a lot
power front jack and stabilizers were top of my options list BUT pleasantly surprised to find the trailer already had them

Well its just me.. I'd like something with azdel in the sidewalls and less than 23 ft..

When you say go elsewhere about the nobo what do you have in mind?

I'd like to RV park camp, dry and boondock as well..

All three FR models have Azdel. If you're going just do the above then any of them will work as well.

If you're really going off-road then you'll typically have to go smaller and pop-up just because towing anything would be problematic. There are many other niche vendors out there if you really want to get away from others and have the cash.

Unfortunately the family and I can't take off for months at a time otherwise I'd be game myself. They also refuse to take more than a week on the road so glamping is in order.

It's a matter of personal preference, but I like the NoBo because it's got the dinette in the slideout. The other has the kitchen plumbing in the slideout and I worry that all that in/out action will weaken the connections. Looks like it's got a bigger wardrobe too, but they are pretty close.

Man all of those are great suggestions.. especially the Bruder but all are out of my price range.

I prefer that as well.. but kitchen in a slide out won't be a deal breaker
