We've been debating back and forth between getting a class A (like Georgie Boy 2450 Suite) or getting a small (like FunFinder 189FBS) travel trailer to go with our Class B on extended trips. We love the "B" for the tight spots that are so typical of New England and like having redundant facilities for travel. If I get the class A I still have to tow. So diregarding fuel cost, anyone happier moving from an A to a TT? Am I missing something?

We went through this, and here's what we've learned after doing a temporary full-timing trip.

Almost all configurations are only really comfortable long term for 2 people.

Overall, a TT will likely be less money up front, as well as ongoing costs.

No matter what, you're towing something.

I wouldn't use the words "tight spots" and class A in the same sentence.

It seems in your case, since you already have the class b, assuming it has decent tow ratings, adding small TT with a slideout (to me, this is mandatory since it adds so much more room) would be ideal.

Good luck!

Thanks for the replies. The Fun Finder 189 type trailer with slide is well within the specification for the tongue weight and GCWR. We're thinking that this combination will provide the most options for short and long trips. Interior room is a consideration but we really like the manuverability of the Class B for driving and with our custom heated seats its as comfortable as an A (albeit without air-ride).

I looked into a B towing a TT. The payload limitation on tongue weight means a really small trailer.
You'll get more interior living space with an A.

Yeah I would look at a small TT that your current B could pull. That also gives you more options to say if you wanted to get a truck down the road and only use the small TT.
