Best trailer I ever bought. Forest River and XLR are outstanding to deal with after the purchase as well. Just a great outfit all around. The trailer is heads and shoulders above everything else we looked at as far as standards and options too. Plus they did all kinds of customizations for me too. Even painted it to match my truck!

I just might look into that. Been looking at 5vers and toyhaulers.

If you're after a toyhauler, I can't say enough about XLR's Thunderbolt lineup. I shopped heavily. Every brand and every option was considered and I honestly feel we made the best decision. If you have ANY questions, please feel free to PM me. We just went through the process of ordering and buying. Got a great dealer too. We had to travel but 36% off the fake MSRP on an ordered rig was as easy choice to make! Hope I can help.

Size depends on how you want to camp. The canyon where we go camping a lot was built in the 1930-1940's. So the sites are small. We have a 22 foot FW we can put anywhere. A 40 foot would have struggles. But to each their own, that is why there is so many different floor plans out there. Find what you want and be happy.

What limited my trailer length was my driveway at home. I did not want to overhang the driveway and have the 5 re overhang when parked in the driveway. So we are at 37ft long which to us is a perfect length for extended stays say a month or more. We tow a Cedar Creek 34RL.

If I went by the length of my driveway I wouldn't be legal on any road without a pilot car!

44.5' can make an otherwise large truck look small!

I hear you. Mine is close to 500 feet and I have to back down it when hooked up.

I know it. I'm not in the big boy club. Do love my truck though. Would you believe I hit the scales today and found with my ark in tow, I'm under on all my weights except GCVWR? Can't wait until the next time in the towing section when I'm told I need a 450 or MDT so I can post my weight ticket...
