We've had everything from pop-up campers to a 40' diesel pusher. We finally sold it because it was just too big for folks getting just a little too old to handle a beast like that any longer. Still wanted to travel so we bought a Ford truck and after a lot of shopping, chose the Forest River Wolf Pup 16FQ. This is a great little trailer and just right for us, with a lot a features packed into a small package. We see a lot of folks making a laundry list of petty complaints but these frustrations most often come from people who are first-timers or haven't been in the RV travel game all that long. Literally all RVs, even our diesel pusher, had its share of quirks and issues. It's part of choosing to stay in an RV instead of hotel rooms. With an RV motorhome or towable,learning to become handy is an absolute must. Make sure that you learn about RV electrical and plumbing and inspect those features so if you experience trouble while on the road you can make the repair if necessary. There's typically not an RV center around every corner. Be certain to put together an RV first-aid kit for your rig as well, ie fuses, washers, fittings, heavy duty tarp with tie-downs and a tool set with what you need to make repairs. Don't expect to purchase a lightweight 16ft. towable and act as though it should have been crafted by artisans and ace technicians. It's just not reality, folks. The manufacturing plant is churning out these trailers as fast as possible and if you're lucky, you'll get one without any hiccups. Just don't become frustrated because you bought a $15K trailer and begin inspecting it for flaws. Hook it up, get on the road and forget about the small stuff. It's why you purchased it in the first place. We went over our trailer when we first purchased it and it's built like any of the others on the market so don't forget that you're using it to get away from it all and not bring misery with you on the trip. Did we see imperfections and lack of attention to details when we inspected it? Sure we did. If you're expecting perfection, stay clear of purchasing an RV. If you want to simply buy an alternative form of recreation, get to meet new folks on the RV circuit and kick back with more privacy and self-sufficiency than hotel rooms, then go get yourself an RV rig and have fun. If something breaks, learn to fix it or take it to a dealer while you're on the road or when you get back home. The Wolf Pup 16FQ is perfect for a couple, with or without a couple of small pets or kids. Plenty of bathroom space for such a small package but very functional. Kitchen is just right for the rig and the murphy bed/jackknife couch is ingenious when it comes to function and space utilization. The electric awning is a real treat for a low-end package and perks like the backup camera, outdoor refrigerator and entertainment features, the 4-jack stabilization and storage capacity all make this small RV trailer an excellent choice. Don't forget, however, that regardless of what you're using to tow this rig to invest in a proper weight distribution/anti-sway hitch system. It will be the best money you've ever spent and provide you with the towing safety you will be glad you installed. We'll give the rig a 5 in all categories. We haven't yet faced a warranty issue with this new rig but have done so many times with all of our others. It's just part of the RV world. You work with them to get the issue resolved and move forward. Best advice is to stop all the complaining, get yourself a rig if you want to have some fun and go hit the road. At our age, we're here to tell you that life is indeed short so don't waste it being so negative. Nothing is perfect. RVs are no exception by any means. Go get yourself one and loosen your hatband a notch or two.

Took 2 big trips. Baltimore to Des Moines Iowa 4 a week 2021. Then Florida keys for 5 weeks in Jan. 2022. Only problem was Check valves in both Sink faucets Stuck closed. towing trailer was a dream. Very easy to set up. Overall very happy with layout and functionality. Have had trailer for a year now. Spent about 9 weeks camping. Just found out the solar panel is not charging the battery. Hoping it's something simple. Love this camper.

I really like the Murphy bed/sofa combination layout because this is a small trailer with no slide out. The space is good for a couple or couple with a small child or pet. My husband and I brought our two kitties and they thought it was purrrrrfect. The awning with lighting, refrigerator and speakers made a great outdoor space to hang out and listen to music while enjoying your campsite. And the sofa/Murphy bed made the indoor space useful and versatile. We would lay on the bed and watch movies or play Uno at the dinette when it rained. Both the bathroom and kitchen size for this trailer is great and functional. This is our first trailer and is great for short trips but even with it’s short length I never felt comfortable pulling a trailer so we are going to upgrade to a small class C RV. Looking at the Jayco 22A as it’s short and has a great layout as well.

Wife and I Travelled 2500 miles up and down east coast twice and lived in our Wolf Pup a month each time. Strong points: The Murphy bed gave us great comfort when sleeping and more living space when made up. The bathroom with sink vanity mirror, toilet and shower across back end was great, Full sized battery operated solar charged refrigerator, 2 burner attractive stove, deep sink, dining area, ease of cleaning, lighting, large windows, awning, outside convenience lighting, phone charge outlets, tv adapted locations, rear rack, ease of towing, water , black/ grey storage tanks ample, We modified by removing panels and adding access to upper shelf over dining table and installed holding latch, replaced poor original tires after SEVERE blow out on US 95 near Richmond, upgraded tv antenna and modified rear carrier for generator box, A/C does great job but very loud, need more access doors instead of panels to shelves over Murphy Bed and draw for utensils underneath sink, improvement for difficult storage compartment locks. We felt very comfortable and confident towing into Smokey mountains with our F-150 2.70 engine. Rating for service at Gander Bartow Fl. And fort Pierce Fl. POOR. I still have an issue with a factory call back for shore line connection box which I intend to take up with Mr Lemonis President of Camping World.

Size and layout is great for two people. Good sized bathroom and walk around queen. The main problem is the Murphy bed design causes a two to three inch drop between jack knife sofa level and the hard surface when weight is applied making it impossible for anyone with back issues. Could not find any good remedies. The dinette cushions will not stay in place when used. I have heard that they may have worked on the design problem with the bed in newer models.

We ordered and took delivery of our Wolf Pup 16FQ in the fall of 2020. So far the quality of the trailer is very good. This model has a tow rating @ 3200 lbs which was a big concern for us. This small trailer is loaded with some great features: full dry bathroom, big windows, glass door, large refrigerator/freezer, murphy bed, large windows, solar panel and out-side refrigerator. We have added a rear camera, extended an auxiliary gas line to the back, stabilizer supports and a power tongue jack. My wife and I spent 30 days traveling and are very happy with our purchase.
