Hi there.
I'm new to the forum and have been researching the ins/outs of MH vs. TT. I just recently saw the new TT by Trailmanor -- it is not a pop up -- it is a traditional TT but very light weight. Does anyone have any information, opionion, etc. on this new TT? Any help would be much appreciated.

HI ! Welcome to the forum, so glad you joined us :D I don't know anything about the Trailmanor but did look at them on line and they're very neat looking ! Small to tow but then they turn into what looks like a nice roomy space ! Are you going to be using it for occasional trips or are you looking for something to live in fulltime ? How you're going to use it would make a difference, but I'm sure you know that :D Good luck with your search and keep us posted !

Thanks for the welcome.
Yes, I will be using it for weekend trips. I thought that a TT would be a good idea for a little while. I did not want to commit to a MH just yet. A TT would help me get my feet wet. I have rented a MH several times for local travel and had a terrific time. So, I thought I'd get my feet wet with a TT and then graduate to a MH later down the line. I wanted to be able to travel a bit and still have my car available for excursions while vacationing.
The TT I'm looking at is a new 2009 -- it is their first ever non-pop up travel trailer -- light weight for an SUV to tow but a little more roomy than the the other trailers that my car can tow.
I'm hoping that someone out there might have a bit of insight about this new TT. Just looking for some information before I make an investment.

I did a search using "Trailmanor Travel Trailer owners forum" I came up with several hits - you may want to try that. On a different note - you have your PM access turned off (PM = personal message / we're able to PM one another so info isn't on the forum) I was going to just send you some of the links in a PM because we aren't suppose to promote other forums here on this forum - I couldn't so hopefully this is OK with RVA :D Trudy, Molly & Murphy 37' Montana 5th wheel - "be the kind of person your dog thinks you are"

Welcome, Julie! It's nice to have another So. Cal. member here!
I just looked at the Trailmanors. I'm assuming that you're referring to their new ultra-light "upright" trailer -- the 23' model. While the weight looks good, apart from the dinette there's nowhere to sit. Also, if you're thinking of pulling it with an SUV, something that long might become a case of "the tail wagging the dog" if your SUV is on the small side. While the trailer is lightweight, it's still got a high profile & could really get caught in the wind -- and you know how windy it can get here in So. Calif!
I'd look at what your car is capable of towing and go from there. There are several options for smaller SUVs, if that's what you've got.
Glad you found us! Hope to hear more from you in the future! Laura & Jed 19' Shamrock Hybrid

Welcome to our Forum, Julie! So happy to have you join us.
I think you've made a good decision to get your feet wet to RVing with a lightweight trailer. Makes sense to me to try on the idea before investing in a motorhome.
Keep on coming back, and letting us know more about you and get to know you better. We travel in a trailer, taking two little dachshund sisters along with us.
Have a wonderful day...and again --- WELCOME!!!

Well, once I figure out how to turn on the IM, I'll let you know and you can send me the info. Of course, if you know how to do that and can help me out with it, I'll work on it. Thanks for the help.

Thank you for the welcome note. Any help is more than appreciate.
I drive a Honda Pilot. It is a medium sized SUV and capable of towing 3500 lbs. According to the literature on the trialmanor TT -- it weights in at 2500 minus all the bells and whistles. The one that I looked at near me comes in at just under 3000 which I think is what I can handle. We'll see. Luckily, I have a couple of friends who own MH and of course, have tons of info as well as opinions for me.
Until I purchase, I'll be doing the rental thing -- love this one particular model Class C -- bath in the back, dinnette and couch with bed overhead. Works perfect for Lola (Chihuahua/Terrier mix). :)
