If you are willing to us an east-west bed and the Neo shower like the MM. A Lance 1475 might be worth a look as well. The seats are much more comfortable than a dinette. Storage is very well thought out and it has good payload. Ours weighs in at 2850 with a 3700 GVW. TW Camp ready is 430, dry tanks. It is just so usable.

You will find 2 versions of it as they just did an update of the model but the inherent goodness is still intact.

Also, keep in mind that all trailers aren't built the same:

Check out these folks RV trailers. Small company and been in the RV industry since the '60s. Bought our 1st truck camper from them in '72 when the kids were big enough to look forward to each weekend on the lake.

I appreciate all the inputs. Thanks!

To answer some of your questions in no particular order.

TV- 2016 Colorado Z71 crew cab long bed w/tow package.
Wheelbase - 11.7'
GVWR 6,000. GCWR 12,00. Max Trailer Weight 7,000. Max Tongue Weight 900. Gross Rear Axle Weight 3,500.

As for budget - I really want to drive off with TT,tax,title and license for $25Kish or less. The Springdale would come in well under that , the Nash and MiniWinni would both be on the hairy edge.

I looked over the Lances at the Seattle RV show. Very, very nice. I don't know that the 1475 would do it for us, the 1575 looked more appealing. In either case a new one would blow the budget! Probably say the same for a late model used one. I went to the owners site, but you have to register to even look at the for sale listings. I may go back later and do that.

I did look over the Starcrafts at the show. Not the one posted. We may have to make a trip out to Snohomish to take a closer look.

Will, do you have a buyer lined up for your 17K? Let's make a deal [emoticon]

These are some of the current listings from LOA:

2013 1575 $17,900
2012 1881 $22,000 (this model doesn't have a slideroom)
2012 1575 $15,000
2016 1575 $24,900
2016 1575 $25,900
2016 2185 $29,850

Seems that most people selling their Lance's are buying more of the same. Remember there is always room for price negotiation!
