in reading different rv books, the authors have mentioned a basement travel trailer, but i have never seen one at an rv show or at dealers.

if anyone knows of one, please give me the manufacturer's name.

thanks

I'd be interested, too. Problem with travel trailers is the weight limit - hitch is mostly limited to 10,000 pounds. Some larger TT's hit that limit w/o any added basement storage space.

I like the full, flat, floor of TT's. And one advantage of no basement is easy access into/out of the trailer unlike the long climb into/out of most 5th wheel units.

Are there any trailers out there w/o those $*(^*# rubber roof's?

Ya pays ya money - ya get ya choice.....

I would suggest the Citation from Thor America. I have a 33M that has front and rear basement storage areas. THe front is about 24" x 8' and the back has 3 doors and covers an area of 8'x 4' of storage both front and rear are about 16" high. check them at www.thoramerica-rv.com.

Don't know about bumper pull travel trailers, but one of the Newmar 5er models (Kountry Aire) has basement storage.

I have a 2002 Jayco 300FSS with basement storage. The older Jayco's used a "stacked" frame (two 6") on their slideout models, which amounted to a 12 inch frame all the way around. On the 300FSS model, they moved the floor of the storage area down to the bottom of the frame, plus in the 300FSS model they put it under the queen rear bed. This gives you a huge storage area about 50" wide, 70" deep, and 36" high, with 12" of that height below floor level. It looked so big before I filled it up with lawn chairs,etc that we jokingly referred to it as our "second bedroom." I know they have discontinued the 30FSS model (too heavy at 8000 lbs), but they may have incorporated the basement storage concept in other current models.
