Welcome to iRV2. Asking about what everyone considers a good trailer is like asking what do you like to eat. Are you talking best in entry level, mid level or high end trailers?

Its hard to recommend a certain brand of rig to anyone. most folks will recommend what they have because thats what they liked. I have been on iRV2 since the beginning and I alway tell everyone the things you want your rig to do only you know, you may like going to the sand dunes and dry camping a lot. We have a quad, but the main reason for the toy hauler is we also have a Goldwing and take it when we go camping. We have a generator with a gas station. These are needed if you want to boon dock. So not knowing what you want to do makes it your decision. As far as finding a nice one with at least 2 slides a garage, and all the extras in your price range will be tough but not impossible. You want the slides for the room if your going to spend more then a weekend at a time in it. The garage is great if your spending more then 1 night on the road between stops. With the way things are there are lots of hardly used ones and even some dealers are willing to sell cheaper with less profit. You need to decide what you want more then what brand. and take your time finding it. Look at different brands, floor plans and also think about how many people will be camping with you and where will they sleep. Let us know what you decide.

if it is going to be just u there are many 5er THs that will work great. some have smaller garages that are perfect for a motorcycle rather than 12' garages that eat up alot of living space.

also r u wanting to buy new or a good used one?

what are some features you would like to have? 1 bath i guess

how man slides? r u wanting smaller 30' or like a 40' triple axle?

there are many great ppl on here and we will help you out w the choice
