Our Heartland North Trail 22FBS has felt like better than typical quality (when we go shopping in other brands). In spite of what the model number implies, the box is roughly 25' long.

Ours is a Caliber Edition, which includes a number of upgrades. The main kitchen counter is a solid surface (like Corian) and has an under-hung stainless steel double sink. Really helps with the quality feel. I also appreciate the glass neo-angle shower. And it came with a comfort height ceramic toilet.

We've found that small modifications can enhance the feel. For example we swapped out the privacy glass in the door for clear smoked glass. What a difference!

Best regards,
Chris

Artic Fox 25Y or if you don't have an HD truck than Lance would be the other.

We have a Forest River 2306 and seems to be tight and fairly well made. We've owned a variety and this is by far the best. We like our murphy bed.

Any one have any advice about Pacific Coachworks? I am looking at a 2015 Tango 20 UL. It seems that almost all TT's have bad reviews?

I have a Coachman Freedom EXpress 192rbs which is 22 ft . I love the camper and have to say I havenít seen any glaring issues with it for the year I have owned it .

Just bought a new Dutchman Aspen Trail 1900RBWE, it is almost 25 feet. All of the manufacturers are about the same, exceptions are Air stream and Lance. You just have to find the floorplan you like and look at the individual trailer. There are books on line that can help. Research the dealership's reputation! They are the liason between you and the manufacturer. There are always problems with every brand, how they resolve the issue is the key to being a happy camper!

Hello Sailorman,

Iím new to this forum but wanted to share my experience since you mentioned your looking for a quality trailer in the 20 to 25 foot range. We were in the same boat. New to owning a travel trailer and we looked for over a year to find one that was well built, smallish in size, and lightweight. We love to visit CA state parks vs private RV places, as weíve been tent campers for 25 years. In any event we finally found the perfect well built trailer that met our weight and size restrictions itís a Lance 1985. If you havenít looked at a Lance before I would recommend checking them out. We just love ours!

Lance

Welcome to the forum. Iíve heard many good things about Lance and definitely want to check them out. Unfortunately not many available here in South Florida.

Thanks to everyone for all the great recommendations. I now have some good leads to follow. I do like the layout of the Lance if I can find one locally.

Sailorman,

You might want to check the Lance Facebook group. Often times folks mention they are upgrading models, so good place to find leads in your area

Sadly true ! The industry standard roofing material is EPDM (or some other "rubber" roofing) that does not hold up well against ultraviolet (sunlight) unless it is washed (mild soap and water) and treated with a UV inhibitor a couple times a year. Even then, massive amounts of caulk/sealants are used that seem to fail far too soon.

There are better solutions and yes they would cost more. Would you pay an extra $2K-$3K for a roof that was guaranteed against leaks for 20 years ?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Taylor Coach. You'll never look at an American made RV the same way again.
