Don't mind me...

I'm just here to do some research.
We are planning to buy a travel trailer in a few months, so I'm tying to learn as much as possible beforehand.

What kind of travel trailer are you looking for?
We had a tow- trailer for the longest time while the kids were growing up. Then just before we retired we got a 5th wheel to go with my old dodge 2500 diesel. It has a great lay-out and is a 'light' model. I still had to get the upgraded drivers lisence as the gvw is near 10000 lbs.
Had lots of 'breakdowns' with the new unit and found out that the quality in production is pretty much gone for every brand name unit being made. There are always up-sides and down-sides for each model.
I recommend that you find a good layout that will allow you to live comfortably for the length of time you want and don't worry about the brand name.

Wife likes the "quad bunk" layout.
We've been looking at some Forest River Wildwood models. My decision point right now is "regular" or "X-lite" model...

Markyb,
Like youself, i searched and read forums for months before i purchased my trailer.
I must have visited every rv dealer within 500 miles.and looked thru hundreds of models,brands,floorplans etc.
I always ended up back @ the nash, i loved the layout of the nash 23b, however with the kids, i ended up with the 25c with the rear bunks.

Hope you enjoy whatever you end up purchasing.
Good luck.

Question about Camping World:
The local CW doesn't carry the trailer I'm interested in. (Keystone Hideout). Can they pull one from another CW when I'm ready to buy?

To answer my own question...
Not really...
There would be limited circumstances where they could, only for brands that the local CW already carries. i.e. My local CW can't get the Hideout I was looking at because they don't normally carry Hideouts.
