Hi everyone,
Does anyone have a Travel Lite Idea travel trailer? I'm considering the i15 or i17. I can't find any reviews from other owners anywhere on the net. The information on their website is a little thin as well.

It looks like a very nice unit in person and the fit and finish looks above average too, but I'd like to hear from owners on their experiences with the trailer.

Thank you in advance.

I believe they are all new for 2012. Can't find much info on 'em!

They run $15,000.00 for a brand new model i17 travel trailer from a company that makes truck campers, and has really simple interior. They are a very small company that has been building Truck Campers for 15 years.

But the stuff included "standard with a custom-molded gel coat front cap, high-gloss gel coat exterior, 13' awning, 14" aluminum mag rims, window style air conditioner, molded granicote kitchen counter and table top, dream dinette, and MUCH more."

But what they don't have that most other brands in this price range include as standard.

And note that the i17 model can only be loaded with 575 of cargo. Period! That includes water, propane, food, clothing, camping stuff, kids stuff, etc. Then you've overloaded it.

I'm just thinking there are better buys out there. Like the Jayco Jay Flight Swift 184BH, same 3500 gross weight, but cargo increases to 820 lbs, yet it's longer with much more interior room, 5" lower for better towing, standard microwave, better Jensen stereo DVD, IPod/MP3 stereo, and more.

And it's built by a 43 year old family owned company, the 3rd largest RV Company in North America, and the Jay Flight has been the #1 selling Travel Trailer for 7 years running, and the icing on the cake is the 2 year warranty.

And on RV Trader the 2012 Jayco's run $10,000 to $14,000.00 on dealer lots.

Look for that unsold brand new 2011 or 2012, the 2013's are coming out.
