Question In the market...

Well, our trailer got totaled by the insurance company. We brought it in to have the water damage repaired and they totaled it. So we're in the market for a new one.

We'd like a travel trailer and the following things are a must:

-Oven
-Two door/full fridge
-Couch
-Outdoor speakers
-Full bath with a tub
-$15K or less

I know that price is subjective to one's location, but there are SO many brands out there, and a lot of those brands aren't carried in our local area. Most of the dealerships have a lot of the same things.

Like Gulfport - I dont think there's a dealership for those around here. And Starcraft, the only place to get those around here is Camping World.

So if you have a trailer brand suggestion that has a model that meets our criteria, please let me know so that I can research them.

Thanks in advance!!

What was the cause of the water damage? Leaky roof or broken water line maybe?

Are you looking new or used and do you have any weight or length requirements? As for the double door full fridge, those are rare and usually only in large 5th wheels. Most have the standard RV fridge. Also full bath with tub, are you looking for a full tub or the small RV tub? Hopefully you will find a nice unit that does not leak.

$15,500.

It was $16,692 with TTL, so our projected payment was only about $17 higher than we planned on.
