Hello all, Seriously looking at the Nash 18FM as my next RV, down sizing from a NUWA 5th wheel. I would appreciate ANY comments on good and bad of this model from 18FM owners. I previously owned an AF 1140 TC, before the NUWA so understand and respect the quality of Northwood products. I thank you in advance....happy trails.

Heavy and tall compared to many TTs. Good fresh, grey and black capacities. Excellent quality reputation.

You can't go wrong with Nash products. Had a 22H for 10 years and never spent a penny on any repairs. Only costs were tires every 3 years and water pump every 3-4 yrs. Wife wanted to buy something bigger and I have regretted selling it to this day!

We considered the same model after selling our AF 27-5L and downsizing. The biggest thing we had an issue with is the Murphy Bed. Was also concerned about its weight with our Yukon as the tow vehicle.

Nash 19b owner here. Bought new in 2000 and running strong today. Two things sold us on Nash over other TT (including our 1st choice, Airstream): Insulation--when salesman was showing different brands, all the Nash's were significantly cooler. And for a TT in the 20' range, it had the most features and comforts. Water and holding tanks are larger than most TT of larger lengths.

Negative issues: The upper bunk above the couch conversion was, well, more for show than functionality. I modified it and it is now a 2 shelf storage area--as there was a shortage of space for folded clothes and towels. Nice to be able to roll our memory foam mattress pad and store it on the top shelf and there is enough width and height to store our clothes in medium sized plastic totes on the bottom shelf.

The couch conversion bed was between "double" and "queen" size bed, and the pull out design was kinda hookey. I added 6 inches in width (now queen size) and the pullout with heavy duty ball bearing "drawer slides". I now have the beautiful option of using the couch cushions for the "bed", or best yet....lay a real full size queen mattress on top of the cushions. Of course with the mattress, losing the couch sitting space area is no biggy for the two of us, as the dinette is where we usually sit. Sleeping on a nice queen size mattress (and not having to convert the bed back to couch) is nice, almost like sleeping at home....lol, but will never compare with our California King Temperpedic in our bedroom at home.

Would I buy this model and brand again? Yes.
