Hey what are guys here haulign for small travel trailer, or big? We were watching for a slide in truck camper but I had a salesman ask me our plans and he suggested a truck camper is just not enough room for us........................... damnit he was right. so we started looking at lightweight travel trailers but need sleep for 2 large adults, 2 teenage girls 5'6 and 5'7 and our 9 yr old son. really liked the NOBO by forest river but the 16.5 only slept 4 and felt tiny inside. have spent a few days checkign out floorplans and weights /options and I think we are stuck on a coleman 17FQ single axle with a queen, dinette double, and single over double bunk beds. If we get it I will switch to soemthign other than a 14" wheel, probably a larger axle as its gvw is 350lbs more than its 3500lb axle. I could pull a much larger trailer with my diesel crewcab Ford, but we are going to be on some serious back roads and I don't want the trailer to steer me. will probably be close to 1500 miles total of gravel/soft surface roads. any experienced here with lightweight travel trailers? I think this might be a done deal as it was the only trailer this size that had beds for 5/6, wife and 2 of the kids just loved the layout, all I saw was where it would fail first.I'll have to dig up a photo.
