We downsized to our Jayfight 23rb and I think it's worked well for us this summer. It's just the two of us and we have a bigger bathroom which makes things there easier and the walk-around bed (although not to our comfort-liking yet!) is much better than the bed in the corner like we had before. There's also room for some of the grands if they decide to go with us. All-in-all, we're pleased!

We have been pretty happy with the 26BH but as the kids grow older the TT is starting to get a bit cramped. I took the family to an RV show this spring and the DW saw the benefit of a slide and she is on board with an upgrade to a larger TT when our finances allows it.

I checked upgrade tow vehicle although I'm not sure if I really want to. I keep looking at the new silverados though. The colorado is pulling my new trailer just fine and gets great gas mileage when I'm not pulling anything. It's always nice to have more power though.

We thought the 23rb would be big enough when we got it but it turned out to not have enough room for us. The sunset trail with the slide or a similar unit is what we should have bought in the first place, but I didn't think my colorado could pull it. I was wrong.

In time we would like unit with no bunks, but with chairs, larger slide, more living space, stand up shower instead of tub/shower. The 28RLS would seem to fit that without getting too big long or heavy....

FishAr; I like the layout of the 23RB with the walk around queen bed. If the 198RD would be stretchable I would turn the bed the same way.........lol. Well if the 198RD is gone I'm sure I will find one.

Love both our truck and TT. Have made numerous small mods to improve it. New faucet in bath sink, Fantastic Fan in bath, digital thermostat and wired EMS and quick disconnect power cable.

Wish it had larger tanks like the Jay Flights and larger diameter wheels. Comparable Jay Flight is almost #1000 heavier than the White Hawk, so we will keep what we have. We intend for this TT to last the rest of our camping lives, since we are in our 70's.

Generally, the 19RD and the Tacoma are a nice combination. They fit what we like to do.
However, we are planning on making my F350 (standard cab) into the tow vehicle to reduce the wear & tear on her Taco.

If the right pieces fall into place (money for the correct replacements), I would remove the dinette and j-couch and replace them with a nice set of folding table and chairs that could be easily moved outdoors.

We really enjoy our 23B hybrid but as I get older I am finding I am getting tired of crawling over my husband and the dinette to get out of bed. A walk around bed would be really nice. I would also like a larger bathroom. I am 6'1 and showering is a little bit of uncomfortable. But the storage is remarkable and is hard to give up. Maybe when we upgrade the TV we can upgrade the RV
