Venture 343 VIK Touring

I am looking to buy a 2019 Venture 343 VIK. I have had no experience with this brand I know it is a KZ parent Company and a subsiderary of Thor.

Does anyone have any experience with these units (towing, construction, maintenance). I have owned five different 5th wheel and a class A diesel pusher. We decided to go a different direction. I am thinking TT so I can haul my side by side in pickup.(not legal to pull behind 5th wheel in Oregon)

I watched a video on the trailer. KZ builds ok trailers. I actually like the KZ Durango Gold 5th wheels.

There are about 2 dozen other manufacturers that build a trailer like this. I like the Flagstaff Classis the best so far of what I have seen. Flagstaff uses a laminated roof. I think that is a good thing.
Rockwood is basically the same as Flagstaff. I would look at Flagstaff Classic or Rockwood Signature trailers to see if you like those better.

The Venture VIK is kinda dark for my taste but is probably built ok.

Problem with many of these really big TT's is the really low CCC.
Really small tanks as well. This is pretty much a power pole princess. Great to tow to an RV park or any CG with full hookups. Lightly load it and use it for a rolling motel.

I've looked at several of these at RV shows. They seem really well put together but when I check the CCC load sticker on the door almost all are way to low for me.
