Skyline Koala Super Lite 2013 24 foot

We have never purchased a hardside camper - we have had pop up tent camper, so I'm not real up on the camper world. I really liked this particular camper as it seems to have everything we need and is light; however, I'm not sure if lite is good going down mountains with a lot of cross wind. And, I'm not really sure if the Koala Super Lite is built well or not - does anyone have one, and can you share any problems you may have experienced: pulling the camper, any of the inside features or outside features? Thanks so much!

As far as pulling, if you get the proper hitch and tow vehicle, you'll be fine.

I looked at the Koala. It has a very rounded front cap. I really like the 24' model with the outside kitchen and U-Shaped dinette in the slide.

I think that areodynamic front cap will help a lot but if you have a small tow vehicle you will need a weight distribution hitch with sway control.

We looked at a Koala when we purchased our travel trailer and it got horrible reviews including comments that Skyline did not support any warranty repairs. That was a show stopper for me. A lot of the comments had to do with leaks.
