Question What to buy in a TT.

We have looked at a number of tt and are having difficulty sorting our the good and the bad. We want a 27-29 ft. with a sitting area-recliners and couch. Any knowledge about the Tracer Executive Series.
Thank you.

Were also looking in the 25' to 29' length, but a higher quality trailer. Looked at some Highland Ridge Light's yesterday. For a premium priced RV I was not seeing what would justify paying $5k to $10k more. Traveling out west next month we will stop at a Northwood (Outdoors RV) dealer to compare to.

Have looked at the Winnebago's, but really no floorplan we liked. Did look at Arctic Fox last year. Kind of liked the AF 25W, but by the time you add another 300 lbs for dual pane windows, your pushing 7000lbs. dry (29' 8"). We didn't get as far as closing the slide to see if the bathroom was accessible. Looking at $40k to $43k.

You don't say how many people or what you have for a tow vehicle which can make a difference. Take a look at either a Rockwood 2604WS or a Flagstaff 26RLWS. They are both made by Forest River and identical in floor plan and in fact made at the same plant. About the only difference would be interior style and color, maybe a few other options. The reason it is my choice is for several reasons. They have 2 entry doors, I have a desire to get out in an emergency and little emergency windows don't fit my body. We like to spend 2-3 weeks on the road when we travel and need space for clothes and they have a wardrobe slide out to satisfy that, shirt wardrobes beside the bed don't have enough space. Nice shower and the bathroom is accessible with the slides in. There is a choice for a dinette or free standing table and chairs. And what you are looking for, recliner chairs and a sofa, just under 30' in length. I'm sure there are other RVs similar, just that this is what I have found after a lot of research, looking for the same thing you want. Now if you want to kick the length up another 2' take a look at a Rockwood 2815VS or a Rockwood 2811VS. Good luck in finding your wants.

We have a Jayco White Hawk but it's a bunk model. The 27DSRL is what we would have gotten if we didn't take our grand children with us often. They have a theater seating option. We like our rig a lot... especially at the price we got it for.

We love our 2015 Greywolf 26RL. Dual chairs/ rear living was a must ! 2 years now, and many trips , 5 days max so far, but DW retires next week !!! But the slide out wardrobe sound great !

I know it's not considered high quality , but we love it for two Geizzers !!!!!

Just be sure to shop around ( Internet ) before you buy, we saved $4,000 from our local CW to one 200 miles away, both CW, on the identical TT, worth the trip !

What to buy in a TT.

We are looking at a Cruiser MPG 2650RL that sounds like what you are looking for. It is 31 ft full exterior length. We are hoping to live full-time beginning in the fall. This unit has full insulation including underbelly allowing year round camping. [ATTACH]158856

A lot of trailers are advertised by sleeping capacity so they have fold out sofas instead of chairs. If you can't find one you like with recliners, it is pretty easy to remove most sofas and replace them with recliners. That's what we did. Just make sure there are no tanks built into the sofa bottom. I heave heard of some like that.

Very simular floor plan as our Greywolf, but we are not 4 season. Plan on some Hosting in the future also, but not in the Great White North !!!!

We found what works for us in the Prime Time Tracer 3175rsd. It has opposing slides, a large living room with fireplace, table and chairs, and a nice sized bathroom with a big shower. None of the TT's built today are made worth a hoot, so after shopping for a long time we bought the Tracer and we bought new so we didn't have to buy someone else's trash. Basically it had the floor plan that works for our family and since we've been camping a long time we know what to do to fix anything and actually like working on the rig. In a couple of years it'll be way better than new and it'll last for a long time.
