Welcome to irv2 jeweleed.
Looking at this video by mfg looks like a well constructed and finished travel trailer.
Reminds me of Newmar construction.
The light weigh will be a plus when towing.
Price wise you will have to decide and make sure the floor plan is to each ones liking.
I had a 99 Dutchman sleeper trailer stood up very well when we were traveling the country with our foster children.
Good luck in your hunt have fun and safe rving.

We've been looking in the 20ft range starting with a leftover Kodiak a local dealer had last year. it was in the back of their lot and in poor shape so we passed but went to shows, looked at other popular lightweights - we also liked some of the Keystones, FUnFinder, Jayco. We finally bought a Kodiak in December from a local dealer who is expanding their line and was able to offer at a good price with lots of options. We're no experts and i suspect most of the good brands are more alike than different but were very pleased and have no regrets.

Thank you very much. The video was helpful. We had a wrench thrown into things when the KOA we stay at offered us fantastic deals on last years models of park trailers. Canterbury 840fl and Knopf 3243. We also like the 2 others we were thinking about decisions decisions and it's hard because we're so new at this

On the park models, many do not have holding tanks and are supplied with all electric refrigerators. They are not designed fro travel.

As for the Kodiak, they are a typical entry level lite weight trailer.

Happy with ours, got a great deal from Shipps RV in Chattanooga, TN last year. Bought used and everything is working just fine (other than water problem I fixed for $0). I didn't like the lightweight mattress they used to reduce weight but fixed that for $249 (new mattress) and extended to a full queen with a piece of plywood. Added weight, about 50lbs but it sleeps SO much better.

But the true travelers are they who leave for leaving’s sake

I have a 2011 Kodiak 200QB that we purchased new in Feb., 2011.
We spent over 30 nights in it last summer and found it to be very well constructed and fit our needs well.
I had one item on my warranty fix list. It was a cabinet latch adjustment that I just couldn't get right myself.
I did add memory foam to the mattress and use two swim noodles to stretch the length from the top.
After 1 full year I would definately buy it again.

Hi - thats good to know. We're picking ours up next week from the dealer next week and cant wait. Have inspected it a few times so far looks good. was one drawer that someone shot a screw up from the bottom that missed its mark but they took care of it, not a big deal. So far, dealer and service folks have been excellent.
