New from Kansas

Hello, I'm a new member from Kansas. New to the site and also new to RVing. I just purchased a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country minivan and had a tow package installed on it. I can tow up to 3600 lbs. I am very pleased with the wide selection of ultralights available now. It seems it will be just a matter of finding which one best suits me. I'm retired and I hope to spend my winters down south and perhaps part of the summer either up north or on the coast where the temperatures are cooler.

Welcome Vivian to irv2.
Good luck in your search for RV of your dreams they do make some small but functional models.

Welcome Vivian and greetings! Whereabouts in KS are you? DW and I are in Douglas Co, and headed out next week. If you're in the area, I'll let you know where we will be, and you can come check out our new TT so you can start getting an idea of what you would like. Ours is a little bigger than what you can tow, but at least it will give you a starting point.

I'm in central Kanssas. There are some RV dealers at the State Fair this week and I looked at a couple of ultralights while I was there. The micro Tracer travel trailer looked good. I'm really impressed with the selection of ultralights that is becoming available.

You'll find that some of the RV manufacturers have ultralight versions of some of their more popular floorplans. We started looking at the Jayco 256RKS (we had good luck with our Jayco PUP and a good experience with the 'local' Jayco dealer), but found the build quality was not quite as good as its heavier counterpart, the 25RKS. We ended up with the heavier one, primarily because of the build quality, and secondarily because of the price. I think some of the mfrs use the ultralight label as a marketing tool to increase the MSRP a little.

Anyhoo, just a little food for thought. Keep an eye out for those things, and whatever TT you choose, it will be the right one for you.

You are right about that, the ultralights are as expensive as a larger model. They say it is because of the special light weight material they put in them. I'm pulling with a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country minivan so my limit is 3600 lbs. I wonder if anyone on here has every used a minivan to pull? Would be interesting to find out how it worked for them.
