Pros and Cons of Shadow Cruiser vs Trail Sport R-Vision

What are the pros and cons of a Shadow Cruiser S-185FBS and a Trail Sport R-Vision TS22QB? We like the floor plan for the TS22QB better but it might not be worth $4K premium. There's only 2 of us and we're going to tow it with a Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Thank you!

I owned a Trail-Lite once and will never have another - the actual wt of the unit was just a few # less than the GVWR - without any water. The construction was poor and prone to leaks - one little one cost 2K to repair. I can also think of two other reasons for going Shadow Crusier - length and width. At 18' long a 7' wide your FJ will be able to tow it better and give you better fuel milage. I can see why you like the floorplan of the TL - after all it is 6' longer and 1' wider. Perhaps the only drawback to the Shadow Crusier is the sofa table vs a true dinette - my wife and I like to play card games and it is nice to be able to sit accross from each other instead of side by side. Good Luck
