You should look at a New Horizon. They will build to your design and are rated best by RV Consumers Group. They will make TT's on request.

Smaller travel trailer...look at Arctic Fox. Then ther is also Air Stream, but you need to plan to spend many $$$$$$...like $50k for a new 23' trailer.

Evergreen seems to be getting a good following.

If you really want quality, look at the Avion silver trailers from the 1970's and 1980's. There are still a bunch of them on the road. Some interior rehab, brakes and tires and you are good to go.

After selling our Winnebago last spring we purchase a new 2011 R-vision Crossover 210QB , So far we are very satisfied, light weight only 3,000 pounds so it can be towed with a mid-size SUV like my Chevy Equinox.

Here's a second to TXiceman!!
A previous owner of an R-Vision, Palomino, and now an owner of a Cougar (Keystone), The best would be Airstream - hands down.. I also like the Arctic Fox and almost bought one, or should have.. The Cougar is nice, but the mid price range trailers are all sort of the same.. Cheap, which is frustrating..
I would like to find a nice older Avion or Airstream... They just do not have the space with slides.. (Air Stream does have one that I have seen).. Would probably love it!!
I think trailers come down to paying a awful lot of $$ or becoming patient with faults and learning to fix these..
Dan

The last couple of years that the Avion silvers were built, they built a basement mode. They are few and far between..I believe it was a 34VB. We had a 1989 34B that was a fantastically well built trailer. Much better built than the Air Streams.

Look and you can find some good deals on 1980's Avions. Here are a few
san antonio all for sale / wanted classifieds "Avion" - craigslist

There is also a Yahoo Silver Avion group.

IMO, the Surveyor Select is a pretty nice ride for the money.
There would be a custom built Earthbound RV at the house if money was in excess here.
