It has the two things my wife said were must haves, a walk around queen bed and a bathroom she could showers in and dry herself without leaving the bathroom door open. The first I understood but I didn’t see any problem with her having to leave the door open after a shower[emoticon].

It keeps the bugs out.
AC.
It sleeps 5 comfortably.
Fridge.
Today it was the fact that it blocks the light, got home from the ER at 7:30am, great to be able to sleep till 2:30.

Definitely a step up from the tent we used for the first 16 years of married life=)

Perfect size 21.5 feet 3600 lbs loaded and does not tax me or the tow vehicle, big rear bunk 41 inches and I flipped the axle it will go anywhere like Gibson Reservoir in MT where we went this weekend. We have an Aspen Trail 1700BH. No one goes there and it has a truly beautiful campground. There were only like five people in there and the reason? 19 miles of dirt road keeps everyone away. It sits on the edge of the Bob Marshall and is stunning. And its only two hours from home. It was our first dry camping and everything worked great. Dutchmen sells a tricked out version called the Kodiak 174 with torsion axle, black wash tank and nicer amenities but I didn't want to travel to get one or spend an extra few thousand bucks.

Awning. Sort of serious - having that big awning. Provides shade in the sun, protects you from rain.

Otherwise - bathroom. Having your own toilet. Speaking of which, get trailer with a bathroom that is large if possible. Our bathroom is "usable", but pretty cramped. Make sure you have enough room to Comfortably sit on the toilet - sometimes the toilets are positioned oddly to create more room.

Air conditioning is wonderful on hot, humid days.

Bed... our TT has rear bunks, with the bottom bunk being larger than the top, pretty common layout for a 20ish foot travel trailer. I'm 6ft 1 inch, though, and sleeping on that back bed has my head hitting the back wall and my feet hitting the closet or hanging over the edge. It is not a comfortable place for me to sleep.

So... our TT also has the U-shaped dinette, which we wanted because it sits 6 people. Turns out the bed feature was even better for us. It drops down to make an almost Queen sized bed - it is wonderful. We added a 2 inch memory foam topper and we sleep great. YES, it takes effort to drop the dinette to make up the bed, but many trips we eat outside so just leave the bed in place. Otherwise, it is worth it for the massive bed - at least I think so.

For us, it is a perfect couples’ trailer
Walk around queen bed with storage system under
Large rear bath with lots of storage
Pantry and 6 cubic foot fridge
Oven
Small slide with u-dinette (didn’t really want a slide, but like it now)
Easy access storage under dinette seats
Fantastic Fan
16’ awning
Large pass through storage
Ready to go weight of 5000 pounds
We have no complaints about our camper other than I would prefer not to have an enclosed belly. I will rectify that at some point.

Build quality, crew that put mine together did a good job. I can’t blame crew for poor quality materials

At 16-21’ your gonna make some compromises on bathroom & bed

I wish you luck
