I just pulled the trigger on a 2016 Wind River 250RLSW. Traded in my 2015 20FQ. ORV made a midyear change in the Saddle Ridge interior that is awesome IMHO. From my experience with the 20FQ I plan on the tongue weight loaded, to be around 1000lbs for the 250RLSW. The new TT LED HD television was wired standard definition because the Jenson player was not HDMI capable. Upgraded the player for $150.00. The attached picture shows the difference in the interior (bottom picture is the old interior). The new TT will be delivered by mid December...Can't wait!

I pull my Arctic Fox 31D (36ish feet) with a Ram 3500 DRW (Husky Center Line hitch) and have no problems. I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive at first, pulling such a long tt, but found it to tow and maneuver surprisingly well.

We pull a 26' tt with a double cab Tundra....We do mostly state parks, involving access over narrow rural roads of OH. Northern PA. and VT. Some of the parks a 32' or larger tt's might present issues, especially backing into some sites.

We had a 24' 6" tt before this one. The new one is only 18" longer BUT...This one the tandem wheels are set back more towards the rear of the trailer. So I have to watch a little more on my turning radius which is larger now..

We have a 30 foot Jayco Eagle RLDS with a Reese hitch and sway bars towed by a 2014 Ram 2500 6.2 gasser. The trailer maxes at 10k and the entire combo tows like a dream. We've done several thousand miles this year and many more last year. We've done mountains and narrow local roads. I don't have any complaints about towing at all. Would I buy the same thing again...yes.

As long as you learn to drive a with a TT and properly park and maneuver it they are no problem at all.
