TT for full time living or negatives of trailer brands

Hello all! This is my first post, so I appreciate all of the help and input. I am getting married soon and my fiances education is going to require us to move around often, so we are looking at living in a trailer full time. What brands do you have experience with and what brands should be avoided? (personal experiences preferable). Any tips or input appreciated, thank you.

Much fewer travel fulltime in travel trailers, compared to 5th Wheels and Motorhomes.
Suggest you find a floorplan that works for you and your tow vehicle. Then find the brands that have that type of floorplan and THEN list those brands, for feedback.
FR probably has 50 different brands of travel trailers.

LaCrosse 338RKT

I have a Lacrosse 338RKT. This TT is designed for people that want a triple slide travel trailer that has the amenities of a fifth wheel without the height. We love ours, 50" tv, fireplace, glass walk-in shower, Residential SS French door frig, and king size bed! I do use a Hensley hitch to pull this and love the setup! I do own a diesel truck though! My 8' bed covered with a shell and installed bed slide is way better and usable than a fifth wheel basement storage! I stayed with my brother-in-law for a week in his fifth wheel. In the middle of the night I came out of the bath room and forgot about the steps going down from the bathroom! Wasn't pretty! No desire for a fifth wheel!

There are A lot of brands that donít do warranty if youíre living in the trailer full-time I know this is a Forest River site but grand designs have trailers that you can live in full-time and will warrantee them and you donít have to take it back to the dealer for warranty work they will come out to you wherever you are

Forest River has fulltime rated RVs, like Cardinal.
