I've tried to read reviews and numerous forums about both brands and I feel like I'm not getting anywhere. It seems like people either love their trailer and advise everyone to buy it or they've had so many problems with it that they've advised no one to ever buy it.
Thanks in advance for your help and feedback!
First off, welcome to the forum! Secondly, the advice rcharrette gave is great. From what I have learned, it's better to take the SNAKEBITTEN attitude and roll with the punches RV's gives you and choose the one you like the best. it seems they all have issues and maybe some are NOT better than others (but they sure can be worse). Go with a dealer that is close, use the RV buyers checklists that have been posted here before. Ask the dealer to throw in items with the purchase (slide out toppers are really worth the $$$) and CONSIDER buying an extended warranty! there was a topic posted a few days ago concerning warranties and the one that was listed was a really good deal.
Good luck with your purchase!
