New Light Weights

Frustrated

Hubby and I just got back from our first RV show in over 5 years. We are looking to get a smaller lite weight trailer. We found two that we liked.
The first one is a Surveyor SV 249 by Forest River, It's kind of odd with the bed folding up half way to create the couch. Does anyone out there have this model?
The second one is a Veiwfinder by Cruiser RV. The dealer didn't even have a pamphlet on it, he said it was too new. I came home to research this trailer and cannot find anything on it other than Cruiser RV makes the Fun Finders. I would really like some history on Cruiser RV.
Anyway both units seem to meet our needs for camping and corgis. If anyone has some insight I would appreciate a comment.

We are on the road with our Fun Finder 189fbr. Great unit. I tow with a F150. Well built and we are pleased to own it.

I also recently attended an RV show - just looking - I love my Arctic Fox. I did see lots of lightweight units and was impressed by the North Trail by Heartland www.heartlandrvs.com and the Springdale line from Keystone. I think that the North Trail units are a bit better in overall construction. Both offer lightweight models that are "1/2 Ton Towable"
