Forest River Flagstaff??
Hi guys, I'm new here and my wife, kids and I have been looking seriously at trailers. I've towed vehicles before but never a TT, this will be our first. I know we have lots to learn.
We started out looking in the $10K range but wanted a slide out and newer model, well... that got us looking even higher. We looked at a 2010 Flagstaff 831rkss. We love it, the outdoor kitchen almost seals the deal alone. It's set up the way we wanted, three rear bunks should suit our 4 and 6 year old tyrants fine. Plus lots of room for friends.
So my question is for around $25K how's this trailer, model and brand? It seems to have good construction and the fixtures and peripherals seem to be upgraded as well. Our worries in buying a less expensive trailer is we may want to upgrade sooner than later and don't want to lose money that fast. I think this is a unit we could grow into rather than out of.
My only other concern is the length, it says 33ft but also says 31ft, I'm guessing 33ft tounge to tail. We started looking at 26 footers but couldn't find the floor plan we liked so the 30 footers came into view. Is a 33footer that much harder to move around than a 26 footer? I know the longer the trailer the easier it is to back up but still...
Our tow rig is an Excursion with airbags so we should be fine there. Thanks for all your help. Like I said, we have alot to learn and will be here absorbing all we can.
