I had a KZ Sporstmen 14FTH, which is identical to the 16FTH except a couple foot shorter. We hauled a motorcycle in it ONE time. Rest of the time it was a camper only. I think it's a great idea. Only reason we didn't like it was because the bed/dining table were combined. It was a pain to make the bed, then take it up and use a table, then make the bed again, etc. Of course we ate outside most of the time but sometimes indoor use was necessary but it was a big hassle when the "table" was a bed covered with sheets, blankets, pillows, clothes, etc.
It was a fun camper, and easy to get around in. Tongue weight was really light for a toyhauler. It's also nice to have a dual-purpose trailer. It's a fully-functional camper but also a functional cargo trailer. We used it to move a piano, etc. It could be used to move someone from an apartment, etc. Like having two trailers in one, instead of just a camper. The ramp door and open cargo area was very practical.
We use ours for camping with no toys, I race karts, so it comes in handy for that, and we also sometimes use it for a spare "apartment" for guests as we have a small house.
I did originally buy it to haul my SCCA D-sport racer, but that has gone to a more afluent home.
I especially like that it sleeps 5 grown ups comfortably, no 26' TT I've seen has that many beds, when we put the back door down, we get a GREAT breeze blowing through there.
When I take my wife and daughter camping, I love to hang out on the top back bed with the remote and relax at night.
Yes it is heavy, and we could get a 30+ footer with slide outs for less weight, but say down the road my daughter gets into quads or something, I am all set.
Plus, fixing all the f**k ups from the factory is fun! Had this thing 3 years and still re-a-Ragin' it. HA! I made a funny.
We use are TH for many things. Sometimes to haul our motorbikes and sometimes to go to family events for the weekend. We took our twin boys and friend up to the mountains in May so they could go snowboarding. They had lots of room for playing games,watching movies and moving around. While we entertained people in the front with the door closed. If the weathers bad my DW works out in the back using the TV in the back to play fitness video's. If the weight is not a issue a TH is one of the most versatile rigs out there.
The only toys we have in ours are Thomas the tank engine, and Mickey Mouse clubhouse.. With the random sand toys for the beach..
I think of it as a 12' playroom that converts in to a bedroom with 2 REALLY big bunks..
We purchased a 32ft TH so the boys would have a place to play. We also can carry a canoe for fishing, bikes, and still have the bed of the truck for dirty items like fire wood. We use it for a spare bedroom as well and when I work on one of my rental homes 4 hours away I can load up the tools in the back and not wish I had something like the table saw.
....Only reason we didn't like it was because the bed/dining table were combined. It was a pain to make the bed, then take it up and use a table, then make the bed again, etc.
That is the one aspect that might not make it practical. This model does have the beds that fold up to the wall giving you all that space. But then, you have to set them up every night. Still will keep thinking on this....
