You don't mention where you are located. It might be helpful to either see one in person and determine if it's something you would be willing to commit to long term. Most TM owners love showing other people their unique travel trailer.

We look it like a second home. Since we travel cross country every other year, we have used it quite a bit and stayed overnight in Walmarts and Sam's Clubs. Most allow overnight stays. We also love that we were able to camp in Yellowstone with a hard sided camper. Before we could only stay in a certain campground while tent camping. We also camp much more than before as a family. We can go camping in much cooler weather and stay toasty warm. And it makes for a great 'guest house' when family or friends come over. Since we are near D.C., we get quite a bit of family and friends that visit and the TM is great when you need more space to house all the relatives.

It may initially take more time in the beginning to get familiar with the unit, but overall it takes less time the more you use it. Our friends purchased one and love it! They purchased an older unit than our, so there were a few more items to deal with, but just like a purchasing a new house or previously owned home, there are a few things you'll need to fix up or personalize to make it home.

Default Set up is not hard

There are several video's on U Tube that show the set up process. Our pop up takes longer and is harder to set up. I camp without DH and the TrailManor is so much easier for me.

I agree if you can find one close go and check it out. That will answer a lot of your questions. Good luck in you search.

Default Thank you for the feedback

Thank you so much for sharing. It helps to have reassurance. I am great at reading directions and have already read the user manual a few times. As soon as we can find what we are looking for I'll let you know.

Thanks again!

One should not underestimate the value of being able to store a TM in a garage or similar enclosure. RV's that are kept inside "age" much less-more gracefully so to speak-and require less maintenance. This is a significant plus if you have a garage or facility where you can keep your TM. Plus it is much more convenient.
