Looking for suggestions for a new TT. A few years back, we owned a unit from Outdoors RV. It seemed well built but was too large for the places we like to camp. We camp as far in the back country that we can in CO/WY/MT. I need a trailer that can handle rough roads/forest service trails/etc.

-need something that can sleep 6 WITHOUT using the eating table for a bed.
-24ish feet box
-outdoor kitchen
-Our budget is only 30k or so.

Recommendations to look at?

Lol. There has to be something out there that is decently built.

A regular bed up front and two bunks (doubles) would work. My old Outdoors RV would have done well if it was shorter (getting rid of the couch and sitting area).

How are Lance TTs? Built tough?

Disappointing. How about Northwood units? Nash?

Heck, my little 26' TT cost $26k and it ain't no "off road" rig by any means. Well, I could take a dirt road maybe... But ain't gonna be getting where it sounds like you go.. And mine only sleeps 2 people...

Even those little 15' tear-drop "off road" rigs can cost way over that $30k figure...

No idea what this is or what it costs, but seems to be a pretty big off road rig..

X2 in Nash. Same chassis as ORV, but they offer smaller floorplans.

That's a Black Series trailer. They're an Aussie designed, US built trailer. Since their bigger popups run $25k I'm not sure if I want to know what the trailer would cost. That said the classic double popup might be exactly what the OP was looking for.
