new member middle GA

Hello from middle GA. We are thinking about getting another travel trailer. It has been 9 years since rolling a 33 footer with an F150 due to a fish tail sway from a semi. I have learned since that I was sold too much trailer. I now have a Ram 1500 and would prefer to stay under 26'. We are considering hybrids but are concerned about the longevity of the tent material. My family consists of my wife and I and an 8 and 11 year old.

Hi from a fellow middle Georgia Irv2 member. (Milledgeville)
Can't help much with your questions but hope you find what you need. Be sure to check your towing capacity of the truck before making a decision and deal with a reputable dealer.

Welcome to the forum. You have to do what feels comfortable to you. Personally, I don't like the hybrids. To me it seems you still have part of a tent. Good luck with whatever you decide.

My son has a 30' TT and a Dodge 1500 and is now hoping to get more truck....
