Hello all,

I'm new to the whole thing, and joined b/c I'm shopping for a used TT to tow with my '09 Tundra 5.7 w/Tow Package, and thought it would be a good idea to join a forum and learn while I shop. Have been at it for about a month, and as you guys likely know already, it's pretty overwhelming. But I've narrowed it down to a 26ish foot BH, trying to keep the weight around 4200 to 5100lbs, plus or minus. I'll tow it locally as well as cross-country. Opinions vary so drastically on quality, so I ordered a book that supposedly gives real ratings on all new and used from '06 to '15. So anyway, just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks in advance for any help.

PS- one thing that really surprises me is one or two new ones that are extremely inexpensive...I'm looking in the 10-12k range for a used one, and the dealer is showing me a brand new FR Wildwood X-lite 201BHXS for 13k. How can this be? Is that a really cheapo low quality unit? Are the 2010-2011 Durchmen, Jayco's, etc. just really good quality? Seems crazy. I'll likely post the same question on the TT forum.

Again, thanks
