Hello I am a Newbie

Hi I am Karla I have been lurking for about 6 months. First post........

I am sorta new to the RV world. I live in a 5'er pt and I work with a lot of workampers. I work in a national park (when they are open lol) so I see and get to touch lots of RVs. I have lots of questions.

I will be alone a lot of the time my husband and I have opposite work schedules I work in vacation industry and he is a teacher full time. I
am in the market for a towable not sure if I want 5'er or TT today I went to a huge RV show and saw lots. OMG I am more confused than before I went.

Is there a good place to UNBIAS rating about trailer quality. I know all rvs have problems at points but I am not looking for the cheap I want quality that will last.

Are there brands that are better?

I'm thinking you have asked a unanswerable question once you mentioned "unbasised".

Ok maybe impartial? This year at my job we got a new workamper couple. They were nice I was able to ask them lots of questions but soon found out they are independent RV sales people. They work 100% commission at shows during the winter. They were pushing me to brands that suit there needs as 100% FT and there need for stuff.

I have not been able to find a consumer reports type for towable RVs. Is there anything like that?

Hi Karla! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I suggest that you search the 5th wheel and TT areas of the forum and ask questions there. Lots of good info available for the asking!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Maybe what Joe & Annette suggested, I have no experience with towables.
