15K miles of on and offroad use have not turned up any faults with our R-Vision TRailLite 8263-S. It's everything you could expect in a super lightweight 8x26' all season trailer.

This is a favorite question of people in many forums, and it's not limited to one particular company. Like cars, you will always find people who dislike or rave about a particular brand. And, some manufactures make a consistently better line of products than others. Despite that, quality control is a problem throughout the RV industry, and you will find issues, sometimes severe with all brands.

R-Vision has their problems too, largely with customer service, a lousy website, and some quality control problems. I'll stick up for them and say that overall, R-Vision makes a good product, especially for the money. I've had experience with them. It's important to buy from a reputable dealer who will stand by their product and service what they sell. That way, you will hopefully not have to deal with R-Vision directly.

A good source of information on R-Vision products is the http://www.r-visioncamping.org/ website where you will find a cross-section of owners/members who are honest about their trailers, sometimes brutally honest. The site is friendly and much more helpful than the R-Vision company site, and it is not supported by the company.

I had a trail lite. Took it on several trips, one that comes to mind was from Mt clemens Michigan to Fellsmere Fl. During that trip one of the Axles broke Not in half or anything but the rubber suspension. The length of the trip wore out one of the tires,down to the chord. replaced the tire and continued back to Michigan. Found the problem to be the Axle. Notified Trail lite and the axle has a 5 year warrenty, Ordered a new one $250 had it installed $150. sent the old axle, and copy of repair bill back to Trail lite and about 2 weeks
later got a check for $400 bucks. Only problem is that I had to put the money up front first, but the camper was 2 1/2 years old and had about 8-10 thousand miles on it.

We bought a used 2003 Trail Lite 211 B+ last May and so far have been happy with it. We have a larger DP but bought this for weekending and short trips. Our thoughts on it are: The appliances are quite nice for a small unit. The bathroom could be larger but it'll do (You can sit on the Jon and shower at the same time lol) Some of the wood work is rather cheaply made but will do. We're planning on taking it on a trip out west in June so will have a better idea of how it is after that. As other have said I wouldn't plan on too much support from the company.
