Too big?

I've heard of the 2 footitis. Where everybody wants a bigger TT. My question is how many have bought a TT that was too big? Did you downsize? We bought a 238rb but while I'm happy with the purchase, I think we could've got by with a little smaller unit that we could still pull behind our Wrangler.

I am currently shopping for a used 16ft TT that I can tow all over the country. I currently OWN a 28ft TT that I love but it is way too big to use for the kind of traveling I now want to do since I have retired. I also own a small pop-up but it too small. It has no bathroom and does not lend itself to "dry-camping" while traveling.

SO, I am buying one and selling two.

Life is short trade in the one you have for the one you want!

Wellllll we had a 32 foot tt with a single slide. We thought if we could find a lighter smaller unit that had the bedroom slide we wanted, we would go that route for eventual traveling sake. We went to the show last year to see what was out there and now own a 39 foot bohemeth with 3 slides that's fully loaded and weighs in 2000lbs heavier. Funny how that works sometimes, but we hope to enjoy it for years to come.

I wanted a 25 footer but to get the features I wanted I had to get a 30'. This means I cannot camp at some campgrounds.. just too big...

I love my EXP21M Hybrid and it fits me to a "T". Great for those special small spots, easy to back up, pulling into parking lots and gas stations. Washing and waxing is doable in a day. Are there times I wish I had a hard side. yes

Same here. There just wasn't enough sleeping space. If I had to do it again, I would go a bit smaller. There's no reason I couldn't leave the dinette made into a bed for most trips. We don't cook or eat inside.

I think everyone has their own idea of what is the right size. We had a pop up for years, now we have a hybrid and my next on is going to be a 5th wheel with the living quarters in the front. That will be the camper my wife and I purchase when the kids are gone, as I call it my retirement trailer!

We upgraded from the 24' X23B to the 39' 351RLTS and I thought I'd bit off more than I cared to chew. I'm getting the hang of it now and don't think I could go back even if I wanted. Love the space!
