Viewfinders, Forest River Apex, Flagstaff opinions?

Hello all. We are shopping for a small lite trailer. In our sights are the v-nose viewfinder, a fun finder, forest river flagstaff or apex, all below 25 feet long. Coming from small motorhome, haven't towed before. Does the v-nose make sense? Anyone have any of these with input? Thanks in advance.

We also looked at the v nose but found, through research, that there wasn't really much savings on mileage. I was a little apprehensive that it might sway more. Perhaps if we could have taken it on a test drive...Loved the front kitchen!

We ended up with the Fun Finder 215wsk and are still in love. We have yet to cook inside as we use the outside kitchen all the time. I wish the stove was positioned a little differently or at least swiveled. Other than that, we have no complaints. We tow with a Ford F150 with the Ecoboost engine and get between 11-12 mpg.

We have an Apex 18bh. We love the large dinette. It has a bunk over the almost queen sized bed. It can sleep 5, but it's just the 2 of us plus the dog.The trailer is easy to tow and we can fit most anywhere. We did look a the v-nose Skylark by jayco. It's 21 ft lightweight and several floor plans. They even have an optional heat pump system. Very nice trailer but the dealer wouldn't negotiate.
