First RV- recommendations for small bunkhouse TT that's boondockable?
We're looking to move up from tent camping. We have 2 boys, aged 3 and 5. We're interested in a smaller bunkhouse trailer with a queen up front. It will be used for short weekend trips, hopefully to boondocking areas in national parks, or even visiting friends/relatives that don't have the room to sleep us for a couple of nights. I don't envision using the living area that much, but mostly sitting outside around a campfire ring or off hiking or biking.
We went to an RV show, which is why we think the right layout will be front bedroom, rear bunks. Tow vehicle is a F250, so weight isn't too much of a concern, we want smaller just for the sake of parking space and upfront cost.
I found a website that recommended a composting toilet for boondocking, that might be an upgrade I would do, and a solar system too. I also have a Honda EU2000 that can charge up the batteries if needed.
Looking at Forest River, Keystone, etc websites, it's mind boggling how many lines of trailers there are and no mention of really what the quality differences are. I don't care for "foo-foo" features (TV's, stereos, etc), expensive gimmicks, or even an outdoor kitchen. What I don't want to do is skimp on build quality, or materials that will rot or fall apart in a few years.
What should I really be looking for? Insulated floors? heated holding tanks? fiberglass vs aluminum sides? What other "great to have" features should I be looking for?
Finally, what are some quality models to look at both new and on the used market?
EDIT: After readying all morning, I'm really liking the Nash 23B. Small, simple, 4 season insulated, and no frills (TV, outdoor kitchen, etc).
