Thanks for the warm welcome. I am looking at a new Travel Trailer, and the top contenders at this point are the 26BH or the 28BHS. My wife and I have two boys, ages 10 and 12. We are boaters also, so we are used to living "small". The simplicity of the 26BH appeals to me. I always worry that systems (like the slide) will fail. On the other hand, I like the counter space and roominess of the 28BHS. I wish the slide would even "slide out" a bit more!
I am optimistic that the Avalanche is up to the task. I am looking to add a heavy duty transmission cooler and brakes to the Av. I am talking to my mechanic about mods this week. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. We are looking to put some miles on this next year, going out to the west coast and back.
