Candidates to Become Our Next RV

We went to the “Florida RV Supershow“  on Saturday and looked at dozens of trailers.  Most were either too big or too small or had bunk beds etc.  Felt a little like Goldilocks trying out the bears beds.  Then we saw two trailers from Coachmen that we liked, both are Freedom Express Ultra Lights, models 248 RBS and 246 RKS.  Neither fulfills every one of our desires, but both would be acceptable.

The current version of our “wish list” is:

  • Travel trailer with empty weight under 5,000 lb
  • Both a dinette and a couch
  • NO bunk beds
  • A propane oven (NOT just a microwave convection oven)
  • Prefer no kitchen appliances on a slide (just my preference)
  • Accessible for use with slides in
  • Good shower & bathroom config (prefer separate toilet with door, but unlikely on this size RV)
  • “Large” Fresh and waste tanks (in this size trailer would love to have 50 fresh/40 each black and gray)
  • Good storage inside and out

One plus that the 248 RBS has is an outside kitchen complete with small refrigerator, grill, sink, drawers and a cabinet.  We think that would be great!

    We saw a neat design by Holiday Rambler in small travel trailers. They have a Murphy bed option. The base for the Murhpy bed is a jacknifed sofa. When you raise the bed you just pop the sofa back up and vice versa. You don’t have to add overall length to get a couch, but then you don’t get underbed storage.
