New trailer

Wife wants a new trailer! What should I look at? Current TV can tow around 6000lbs. Trailer goes to one place from May-October, so not a lot of towing. Share a trailer you have had experience with
Thanks

What type floorplan do you like,, do you have kids or just the two of you, do you want a slide, etc, lots of variables here.

Have you perused the Jayco website?
Many floorpans to take a look at. Simply click on the VIEW SPECIFICATIONS tab and you'll get the weights.
Happy shopping!

My suggestion is the White Hawk line. Our first TT was a WH and we were very happy with it

23 MRB. With your weight restrictions this model will give you a lot more room due to the Murphy Bed. We bought one last year and love it!

Love our Whitehawk

We are on our third year with our MRB 23 and it is a great choice for a couple. We tow it with a 20-year-old half ton GMC and as long as we don’t want to go uphill fast, it does just fine. The Murphy bed is a great solution as it allows a nice living area during the daytime. We live in it full time for about 5 months and don’t feel cramped. The only downside is the Murphy bed takes the space most trailers have a pass thru storage. We have a full Leer topper so the truck carries all the “stuff”. Good luck

Just a side note. I know several people who have seasonal sites that don't own a personal tow vehicle that can handle their trailer. They hire someone to move their trailer from storage to the campground and back. Not saying that is something that you would want to do, but it would open up an entire size class of trailer if indeed you are going to leave it in one spot all year.

Very smart idea, and can actually save money in the long run if you don't need a big truck for other things.

Check out the Jayflight/Jayflight SLX line-up on the Jayco site. If they don't have a floorplan that interests you, it's time for a new hobby! Check out the 265RLS in the SLX line or 28RLS in the Jayflight line-up. Great floorplan, plenty of space, storage, and got to love the 2 chairs in front of a big back window!
