Newbie from Murfreesboro, TN

My name is Karen. My DH, Jim and our furkid, Buffy the Rat Terrier
, currently have a 2008, 22', Jayco Jayfeather Sport 218.

We tow with a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 with a 5.3L tow package rated at 6500#.

We are looking for something with a walk-around queen bed that has a roomier bath, and a little more storage. In the process of looking we came across a 2010 Coachmen Catalina 22FB & also a 2009 Spirit of America 24 RBQS that we liked very much. We liked the ducted A/C & Heat and the Catalina has a sealed & heated underbelly that was impressive. Hence, my impetus to join this group to see how you folks liked your various models and styles.

RV Wholesalers/Heartland North Trail

Thanks to all you generous folks who took the time to reply to my posting.

One of the things we are looking at is the Heartland North Trail 21FBS. HEARTLAND RV North Trail Lightweight Trailers

RV Wholesalers quoted us $16,446 with the pillow-top mattress. Anyone have any experience with RV wholesalers?
