The wife and I have been searching for a trailer for a while now. We have narrowed it down to a couple we like that fits our price range and specs. The 1st is a 2013 Holiday Rambler Alumilite 237BH. The 2nd is a 2013 passport ultra lite 238MLE. The rambler is about 3K cheaper but they are otherwise nearly identical. My question is whether or not either model or brand has any glaring weaknesses? Ive researched them to death but haven't found much that was relavent. I'm not asking for ford vs chevy type arguments but whether or not there are any known issues with either. Thanks.
The Holiday Rambler has an extensive list of options....14 as a matter of fact! The Passport has as the same list of stuff STANDARD!
Plus the Passport has NO OPTIONS at all...everything is included in the price!
The Passport has bigger fresh water tanks and better roof and floor insulation...R-11 vs R-7 HR...Passports cabinets also look more expensive and have more dimension to them...I think the HR has plainer looking cabinets.
And the Passport has a real "I" beam welded steel chassis frame.
The Aerolites have "European Style Ultra Lite stamped steel bolted together frame. Like this...

The Passports have been very popular on this forum. You won't find too many comaints. The only things I don't like about mine are the small awning and noisy fresh water system. Otherwise a great trailer for the money.
I hope the latest Aluminites are built a heck of a lot better than my Holiday Rambler 2006 Savoy LX. Insides ritzy looking, but some steps were left out outside during construction causing delamination from leaks later on down the road. JMHO
