We like our Dart. Big bath, loads of storage, walk around queen, 2000# cargo capacity. We went to the Asheville RV show and didn’t see anything we would replace ours with.

This is not for everybody: we have a very small trailer (a Fun Finder X-139, with an 11 by 7 foot box!), precisely because we want something that can fit into tiny campsites, in between trees, when we are boondocking out in the national forests, like this:

But in order to make this work, you have to get along really well with your spouse, and preferably one or both of you are very small! [emoticon] (I'm not, but she is.)

My 17' Viking is perfect for us. All we need is a comfortable "hard sided tent w/bathroom." It fits where we want to go and can be easily pulled my my F150 3.5l EB. It was also in the price class where financing was not needed. We have pulled it into many isolated areas where many MH & TT can't get.
It really does help that my wife is small so we can pass each other without someone having to sit down. We like the windows in the dinette area, the walls are basically giant windows with great views.

Nash 17K


I wanted one....and I looked up here in Canada.

Only one available, at the time, 2500 miles away and the salesman was dicking me around.

Then I found my Pacific Coachworks 22UDBH used and love it.....and for $24K less.[emoticon]

I still pine for the Nash, though.

Skyline folded, was taken in by Evergreen, who folded. Ours is a hybrid of both. Trailer says Skyline, paperwork says Evergreen.
The same model was called Joey, EcoCamp, Nomad, and Layton.
There are used ones available.
Best floor plan in this size we have seen.

I gotta admit, that Viking 17 floorplan sure is nice. A full time dinette, so that you don't have to put away the bed every time you want to eat a meal. Luxury!
