I've looked at just about everything out there, been to RV shows etc and just about every dealer in 150 miles. I found the ORV stuff pretty nice for fit and finish. They are not as light as most and more costly. Many of the issues you will run into are with components such as the AC, Water Heater, stove/oven, fridge. All companies use the same stuff so this won't change. The ORV's are very well insulated, they build their own frames and very strong, the paint, fiberglass etc is very good. Depending on the 5 models from the lower end Blackrock to the top of the line Blackstone the quality of woodwork etc gets better and you get better windows, insulation etc. They have by a far reach the nicest dinettes on the market. I'm 6'6" and hate dinettes, I'd have the ORV dinette in a minute. Very comfy and roomy. My favorite is the 280 RDSB which has a bedroom slide. Heavy trailer though. Not a 1/2 ton model at all.
My second choice in TT units is the Grand Design 313 RLTS which has a nicer floorplan, loads of storage, and is much cheaper. They have a new 315 RLTS which looks great as well but I have not seen on in person. Also heavy trailers.
I think everyone runs into some small issues with new trailers that have to be sorted out.

This is my first trailer (Keystone Bullet 248) after downsizing from 6 motorhomes. Three winters in Arizona -- no problems. Has not been back to the dealer ever--fit and finish is good. Tows very well. Price was right. So far I am a happy camper!

I'm on my first trailer as well. A used 2008 Keystone 307. We love it. It has had a couple water leaks and the graphics look like hell, but we've made it our own.

First trailer for as well in a long time after owning a new Jayco in the late 70's, we currently own a 2007 Keystone Laredo 311RL. We are the second owners taking several weekend trips in Mich. & haul it to southern Fla. every winter for a 3mo. stay, no serious problems with it so far, we have also made it our own both inside & out. We have good customer service where we purchased it with our local Camping World here in northern Mi.
