We have a 186BH, there is just me, the wife and our toddler. We wanted a trailer (this was our first) that we could tow from one end of Canada to the other with little setup, one that was not going to be to big to tow for 10 hours a day and setup and take down, as well one that would not take up a lot of space in our driveway. We decided pretty early on that we wanted a Jayco, then I discovered the Autumn Ridge and spent months trying to find a used one. I found it Oct. 2012 and we got a 2010 186 BH Autumn Ridge for $10K inc. tax. The only issue so far has been a leaky toilet valve and last summer we had a storm that was bad enough to drop a tree branch and tear the roof in four small spots. That was easily fixed with a patch kit but would have happened to any trailer.
We took it out East for two weeks last summer, towed like a dream and was just the right size for the three of use to use as somewhere to sleep, eat and shower in comfort after camping in a tent for years.
Love it, and cannot wait for the snow to melt so we can hook it up and get going our our next trip.
