Brand new to the TT world

The 2023 NoBo 19.5 vs the Flagstaff e-pro 19FDS

Which is the better travel trailer? I'm new to this endeavor and have plans to make a purchase within 6 months. All perspectives welcome.

If I had to choose between the two, I like the NoBo 19.5 better.

Flagstaff - I would not like the murphy bed. Having the kitchen in the slide out means a lot more moving parts (plumbing, gas, etc) that could fail. Not saying it will, but its a factor for me. Bigger bathroom is nice.

NoBo - Walkaround bed is a plus. Fridge location makes it easier to get to when loading and unloading. Also, there appears to be more counterspace in this model, even though it is on top of a taller cabinet. Bathroom is smaller, but that's something you will have to decide if it works for you. Slightly better carrying capacity on this one, which is always nice.

Lots of other factors, but that's my opinion...to each their own.

A walk around bed will be priceless. I rented a class 'C' from Cruise America with a corner bed. You could not give that corner bed. 2 nights and I bought a travel trailer with a short walk around queen bed.

I appreciate your feedback.. I don't mind a slide out but my apologies for not being clear from the start...I'd like to have a TT that can run the AC off of the batteries and these 2 have optional paower pkgs that will allow this.. and these 2 seem to be the least expensive as well as I'd like a TT with the least amount of wood in the structure...

As far as the bathroom, I'm 6ft 240 soaking wet and could use the extra room.. for some reason I just have the fear/phobia of too much wood in the structure.. The Ember solves this but its $$$$$$$

Before you put too much stock in running the AC from batteries ask how long and how do you charge the batteries after that. There is no free lunch in the energy world. The need for a generator instead of a plug is real. Maybe one of the new trucks with built in power is in your future.

Yeah, I'm highly skeptical that you'll be able to run the AC for any length of time; the roof would need to be nothing but solar and you'd have to have a massive lithium battery bank.

The Keystone Cougar can be ordered with the OTG (Off the Grid) package which will allow for a few outlets to be live but will not run the A/C. You will need expensive lithium batteries and an inverter to maybe run the A/C.

I should have been more clear, I do not expect to run the AC all night long.. I just want the ability to run the ac and not use a generator

My intention is to not run it all night long... just some in the evening before going to sleep.. I have a CPAP machine so its hard for me to sleep at night in the heat

Still not enough information, how long is the key number. Then it basically a math equation. How many watts are stored and how many do you need. And remember to include enough power to run your CPAP.
But enough have shared these numbers and the answer is no unless you spend a wad on batteries. Still if you share some numbers many here will help you with the calculation.
