Default What model to look for?

Hello all!
Looking to get a TrailManor- preferably used- but don't know what years/models to look for. We want at least a queen size bed, shower, not too long (less than 23'), light (preferably 4K lbs or less), most reliable years
Any and all help greatly appreciated and any prospective sellers with models that meet these requirements happy to hear from!
Thanks!
Kirt

Less than 23ft closed I assume? If that 23ft can include the swing tongue swung, then you could go for any model other than 3326. If you want less than 23ft towing length, then you’re looking for a 3023 or smaller. Note older models with the spare tire on the back bumper add a bit of length.

As for at least a queen bed, that’s any model other than a 2619 (double beds front and rear) or a TrailMini/SportDeck (only one double bed). Every other model has a Queen or King bed out back.

They all have a “dry” weight of under 4,000lbs but I recommend looking at GVWR (max trailer weight including cargo) in which case they are all right at or over 4,000lbs GVWR.

If you want reliable then avoid the Nebraska years (2014-2018). Other than that, they were all pretty well built but all rules would apply for looking at a used camper. Also you really want to have one with aluminum framing in the upper shells (2004+ for sure, but there are earlier units out there with aluminum framing) and absolutely make sure the camper you’re looking at has a clearly visible crown to the roof. If a seller tells you a flat or sagging roof is no big deal they are lying through their teeth and there is no way to repair it short of replacing the entire shell.

Hopefully this helps…
