Arctic Fox models

I'm new to this, so...
Looking at fulltiming in an older Arctic Fox TT. I originally planned on a fiver, but chose a TT in order to leave my truck bed available to carry a motorcycle, etc. In addition, TTs are relatively cheaper for comparable models.
My first choice would be a 27T model (RL layout) at about 29-1/2'. Problem is very few ever show up for resale. The 30U model at about 32-1/2' has a similar layout, is more readily available used, & for some reason priced more reasonably than the 27T. Been around longer for one thing.
My concern is maneuverability. A TT is inherently less maneuverable than a fiver and I'm concerned the additional 3' will be a problem, both in parks & in remote areas, where I hope to spend most of my time.
I don't want to go smaller than something like the 27T as the trailer will be my home for a few years & reasonable space & comfort are important.
Any advice would be appreciated, as well as comment on Arctic Fox, particularly firsthand experience with the models in question.

I really doubt you will notice any difference in most instances. I have backed a 30 foot TT into some really tight places. It all comes down to practice,practice,practice.
BTW I like Northwood products except that to me the interiors seem rather cheap. So be prepared to upgrade seatings and cushions and such with better stuff.
