    never be afraid to low ball a travel trailer salesman. The mark up is extreme, if you look at msrp.

    I came from a big trailer and a diesel truck...never thought I would enjoy a smaller hybrid camper. However.... In the smaller trailer...beds eat up alot of space. My little trailer had 2 queen beds....and the dinette folds into a full if needed. Me...the wife...my 5 year old...and a 135 lb great dane got plenty of space! Set up is equally as quick as my 32 footer with the slide!! Tows like a dream behind the little taco with a andersen weight set up and a curt brake controller

  9. It’s a Jayco X23b. We like it a lot. Slide out makes a world of difference on inside space.

    Bumped you can look on rvshare.com and rent one like your thinking of buying. Then you will know how it pulls and how it sleeps. Just a idea

    Nice set up. You think air bags will fix the drop? Not sure if that’s even a option just thinking out loud

    I saw that yesterday seemed to be a good idea to kinda test drive a camper lol. I didn’t even know you could do it.

    I’m hauling a 2017 22BUD Launch Starcraft with weight distribution and sway control. Picked up the whole package for under $17k in Paragould, Ar. I already had air bags and it pulls just great.

    I pull a Flagstaff Micro Lite, 4200# dry, 21'. Truck pulls it but in the mountains of Tennessee you hear it, that's about normal i think.

    Came out of a F250 Super Duty. Needed smaller truck for a variety of reasons. Picked the Taco. Tow rating just about maxed with my 25' Rockwood Mini Lite trailer.
    Keeping my fingers crossed that it wont be a bad decision. Question for the group - anyone try the Curt Manufacturing Wireless Break controller? I really dont want to add a bulky unit under the dash, knee room is tight enough.

    What break controller are you using? How is it mounted?
