I'm interested in any experience anyone has had with the Aerolite TT's. We are looking at a 2006 24RB-SL that is new. The good and the bad please.

I have a 2005 Kodiak which is the same as the Aerolite. I love the layout of our trailer. If I had it to do over, I would make sure it had an awning over the slide. We had a leak and if we had had an awning, we probably would not have had one. The slide has since been fixed and is secure. Our trailer tows easily and we don't need a large truck. It is great with our TV. We camp 12 months of the year in Florida and have used ours extensively. You can't beat the value for the price.

My experience with Aerolite was good, but was a few years go. My 1st TT was a 1997 25' Aerolite. It was great for the the two years we owned it, but we outgrew it and wanted something bigger. we replaced it with a 1999 30 Aerolite, which again we really liked. We also owned that for two years before replacing it with a motorhome.

Certainly they were lightweight trailers, but they were fairly well made, didn't leak, and were a very good value in my opinion.

Good luck with whatever you choose.

I've got the Kodiak 25QS. It has a rear queen slide and a sofa slide. So far I have had no problems. Tows great and it very comfortable. Good luck.

By my signature you can see I have a 30 foot bunkhouse (Aerolite). For the price I paid ($14,000.00) it is a great trailer. Its layout is nice but the interior is a little cheap but you can't expect a Caddy for the price of a Yugo. Its my second Aero product and Dutchman has been great while my dealer (service area) has not been. Only been in for minor problems. No leaks, no major issues and not too many minor ones (tv antenna didn't work right but after a couple if trips to the service bay, they finally replaced the electronic connection).

Thanks for all of your input. We signed the papers today and the Jayco 186 is being replaced by a 2006 Aerolite 24RB-SL which we will pick up next weekend. With heated tanks I'm thinking we'll be in the woods for valentines day.

You might want to visit the Aerolite/Dutchmen forum.
www.dutchmen-rv-forum.com. There are a lot of knowledgeable folks in regards to the Aerolite family.

Congratulations on the new trailer. You will really enjoy it. We looked into the Aerolites also, but ended up with the Cougar. We will be heading up to the Skagit River the first weekend of Feb. for the Eagle Festival. That has been a long time dream of mine and now that we don't have the tent trailer (you know--heated tanks, hard sides, all the luxuries) we are ready to do it.

Again, congrats. Maybe we'll see you around the area sometime as we are practically neighbors.
