We have camped for many years in many different things. Now that we are in the last 5-10 years before retirement, we decided to go back to a regular camper trailer. Didn't want something too big, yet we had some basic wants. This trailer meets it all. The bed being sideways is the only real drawback. I will admit that up front. The best part is the seating in the back. The table was too big, so I replaced it with a shorter one. That makes it easier to get around. The galley has everything we need. We cook mostly outside and have only used the microwave for heating up breakfast one day. The sink is fine where it is and works as expected. The bathroom across from it is not too small. It is pretty normal sized. I can stand straight up in the shower, but barely. There is room to close the door when sitting on the toilet. These are the important things! The front storage is a bit too deep given that it is not a pass through. I built a "creeper" with a flat wide piece of wood and some trundle bed wheels. It makes it easier to pull stuff out from way in the back. I wish the panels for the water tanks, hot and fresh, were more easily accessible. They are both hidden in another storage hole, making getting in them an acrobatic challenge. Nothing impossible, but more of a challenge than I will want 10 years from now. The trailer pulls great. The light weight makes it very nice. I have to mention that I added an Autowbrake brake controller to the trailer. If you want something that works great and is not dependent on the tow vehicle, take a look at them. I will mention that the tow wiring is not standard color coded. Watch out for that! The dump tanks are separate making dumping take longer to move the hose from one to the other. The black water is too far under the trailer. I cannot see and reach it at the same time. I really don't want to get on my knees at a public dump station! The other change I made was to add a second step. The single step it comes with is about 16" off the ground. That is a bit too much. The added second step is just right. Worth the effort. Although, it did require some cutting of the mount. Not a big deal, and maybe a different brand of steps would not have had that problem. I used what I had! Other than personalization's like wall hangers and spring bars to hold stuff in place, everything else is working without modifications. Just a smaller back table and 2 steps. I added a USB powered BlueTooth Transmitter to the "zone 2" RCA connectors on the back of the radio. That will let us have a speaker outside the camper. I don't consider that so much a modification as an add on. There are no outside speakers, so this is an easy way to add something like that. However, in doing this, I found that the inside front and back are not "stereo" on one channel. It is wired as zone 1 and zone 2. That means the volume for the back connections are also zone 2 and increases the volume inside the trailer. I need to re-wire them so they are stereo on zone 1 only. After a couple of months, I have found that the antennae wire has a short in it. I am not sure if it is inside or outside. I will take it back in a couple of months for warranty once I find out what else may be wrong with it. If I pull the connector half way out, disconnecting the shield ground, the radio works fine. If I leave the connector fully connected, or even let the shields touch, the radio loses signal. If it is the inside connector, I could fix it easy. If it is the one outside the trailer, that is a lot more work and I will let the shop fix it under warranty. For the next 10 years, my wife and I will enjoy it a lot. It is not big enough for anyone else to spend the night, but the back seating is great for 5 or 6 people to sit and talk, drink, play games, or whatever.

I bought in April in Albuquerque NM and knew going in the would be issues that needed to be adjust by the dealership. That started before accepting the RV. A few minor issues were noted. Than came driving off the lot. Awing locked up the first week, now under entry door and detailing bubbling and starting to separate from the siding. Than it takes over a month for warranty approval, shipping of parts, and to get back to the dealership 500 miles round trip, a total of 3 times. End result - They shifted the bow under the door to the right, drug the new replacement awning arm across the concrete work floor damaging it, slipped with the caulk gun causing 3 dents in the siding, and removed detailing on the front of the rv where the sun had heated the siding up (on first warranty visit it was indicated that the remainder of the detailing was doing the same thing). Found out that the detailing was applied with heat, no glue/adhesive was used to adhere it). I live in the SW and it does get warm, so if heat adheres it than heat will remove it. NOW MY new RV is sitting in Texas waiting repairs. In 4 months of having this unit the only time I have been able to hit the road and semi use it was the two trips back to Albuquerque attempting to get issues corrected. Who knows if the unit will be available and finished for the weekender planned and than the trip trip to medical appointments starting the middle of September. I do love the interior layout except insufficient closed clothes storage in sleeping area, location of the AC unit (does not sufficiently cool down seating area) bedroom window not being a functional window. When a product is made to be distributed nation wide more thought should be put into climate issues across the country.

Lots of Travel trailer for the price. Able to sleep 6, which is great for the price range. Very spacious. Lots of storage. Easy to tow. We have had no complaints about our experience with this travel trailer.
