184BS Compared to 199MBS Micro

Yes, I am a NOOB. Letís get that out there from the get-go. Not about life, cars, guitars, food and such mind you-just the ubiquitous travel trailer.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what is so different about the two TTís listed above that there is just about twenty thousand dollars separating them price wise after options and buildout.

Is my 184BS so poorly built and outfitted that the 199MBS with basically an identical footprint truly that much of a better rig?

Thanks JayLo.

Probably the outfitting . The 184 may be more lightly built but we had its bigger bro the 195 for five years.

We hauled that thing from Maine to Florida five times and back The map on the signature is real.
Maine to Alaska once
Maine to California twice

We traded it in for a little more room. We were falling over the dog and I wanted a sofa and a bigger table. The 195 was not falling apart.
No matter what you choose your TT ought to serve you well. I would look at the extras on the Micro.

Also go hound your dealer. If they are honest they can address any differences in build and frame. If they are defensive...run.

Flight vs Micro?! Um…The answer is a lot of things. Aluminum frame, laminated Azdel walls, the ladder, the spare, the under, the cabinets, bed, the width, the sink, the shower, the bunks, the storage, the tanks, the awning, the TV to name a few out of a hundred.

I watched a very comprehensive video about your trailer JayLo, and see what you are saying. It seems the build from the ground up is geared more towards an off the grid, off roading bent. Now I understand how they market it as a more upscale model. Bigger wheels(on mags)brush guard bars all around, grill holder, outside shower. Very different than my 184BS. Thanks again.
