First one is a Casita Liberty Deluxe, with the King size bed. Does anyone have this one and how do you like it.
Same question about the Aspen Trail 1900 RB and the 1600RB, although I prefer the 1900.
google Dutchmen and stay away from everything they make. The dealers around us slowly refuse to sell and repair them.
next: don't look at trailers, where nobody knows what they are or too exotic- you need someone for repairs one day.
it's like with vehicles- it has sometimes reasons, why the majority of buyers buy only certain brands. It's nice to have a Jag, but that lady is a "b%tch". Trust me- the very few people who know how to talk to her have usually the same attitude.
With other words- go with Forest River products, Jayco products or something like that.
The question you ask is wrongfully asked.
you need to think about, what you want and aks, if anybody has them and if there are any concerns about it. Filter the ones out, who just bought it and listen to the ones, who already use it for a year or so (but not the ones who have them as decoration in their front yard). And never ask, how someone likes it- I love tater salad with habanero spices- ask me, if I like it with mayo- I will tell you: no. with other words- how do you like the camper with the king size bed. what answer do you expect?
Regardless- they all are at the end the same, because they put the same stuff in like everybody else- there are not too many different companies out there, making stoves or hot water heaters.
It's the quality you get for your money. and there I can clearly assure you- others might agree- you get, what you pay for. nowhere else it's more true than in the camping business. you want cheap- that's up to $15000. midgrade is $15- 30000 and from there, you get the good stuff.
The question is always- for what do you need it, what do you want to do with it and how much you want to spend- they all are the same within a price range. It comes down to- what design and what floor plan do you want. Because the most campers are made from 3-4 big manufacturers, all located in Indiana, you will find one and the same camper in a different outside design and they usually use their "brand names" to separate the low- mid- and upper level quality.
instead of asking all kind of people about how do you like this or that camper, what gives you zero useful information- go to - even when I hate to say it- camping world- they have the biggest selection. look at the campers you see and appeal to you. make pictures and google the specs (never trust a camping world sales guy- they all lie to you). find the one you like best and start shopping around- but not at camping world- if you don't believe it, try.
don't believe any sales guy who tell you about your tow vehicle: "It'll do it". get the specs and compare it to the ones with the camper of your choice.
you need to be happy- not gonzo, Rosalie or the Gonzalez family in the internet.
Everything else is just gossip.
when they're new, they all look good- if they are good as well, you will see after you had a few trips behind you, without bringing it back for warranty repairs.
I hope it helped a little bit- and sorry for the missing flowers around my words- I can't help it- but I can't make it sound nicer- but that's just me.
