Possibly buying 2014 Aerolite

Hi Im new to RVing and new to forum. My wife and I are looking at purchasing a 2014 Aerolite, either the 250kbs or 282 dbhs. Anyone have any problems or thoughts and concerns on this line and models. Thanks

I've been through the 282 at the rv show in Toronto last month. Lots of room, the king bed is a nice treat. I like the lift system on the rear bunk. Good for storing bikes when your travelling.

I see dead people (really, I do!)

Welcome to the forum from another Islander.
I can't help with this particular trailer but if you haven't been to Arbutus RV you should check them out. Choosing a good dealer is as important as choosing a good RV. We highly recommend them.

I am in talks with them about a trail lite sport possibly. I intend to use them as much as possible for repairs and accessories but the wife and I really like the aerolites. Going to check out a couple in Vancouver after checking out model at arbutus

Welcome. Sent you another PM.

The king bed is not a true king. It the width of a California King and not as long. I am actually thinking of putting a couple of pool noodles in the front to push it out a couple of inches as others have done.
