Time to Upgrade!!

First post here and excited to join this community. A lot to learn and take in! I have always dreamed of owning my own little trailer and now is the time. I've got me, my fiancÚ and our 3 pups wanting to explore the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

Thinking about getting a Passport Elite 23RB. Can't find it locally though. Thoughts?

You may want to look into this company. I used to have a Nash 22h and it was really well built.

I know several people who have driven cross country to pick up a trailer when they couldn't find one locally.

Keep looking, the right one is out there just waiting for you two to find it.

Thank you for the link. I'm not familiar with that brand but will look into it!

As far as people driving across the country, I guess that brings me to another question. Do dealers only get specific models? I just assumed if they sold that brand, they can get all the models but I've only seen the style we want on the east coast.

Nash and Artic Fox are built here on the west coast so people who live in the east have trouble finding them.

Keystone is built in Indiana so it might be easier to find on the east coast.

Just a local site about 30 minutes away from us. The first weekend will just be camping in the driveway. We do have plans to hit up Crater Lake and Redwoods next year.
