Question Info/Opinions needed re Gulfstream's Brands of trailers

Hi everyone new here. Opinions wanted on Gulfstream's Brands of travel trailers. I'm looking at buying a travel trailer in the next year and GS has several smaller models with floor plans I like. I'll be a first time buyer with zero experience with travel trailers. What's the pro and cons of aluminum vs fiberglass exteriors? What are the must have features? My height, 6'3" is a definite limiting factor. GS offers the ones I like with Queen beds and 80" interior heights. There are other models with floor plans that would be great except for their 74" beds and 6'4" interiors.

I also really like some of the smaller Lance trailers but they are really expensive compared to most other brands. Are they that much better.

Thanks in advance guys.

Uh huh. I'm making sure the beds are 80" queens. The short queens don't work for me.
