We're looking for a TT for retirement. Just DW, myself and the dog. We've enjoyed the TC on the beach but we're ready for more space. TV is a F350 PSD SRW so 14k lbs is the max. A rear living is our fav but without a good rv show, like Hershey, it's hard to pick one. We like the Jayco and Keystone units, Airstreams not so much, but any recommendations are appreciated. We want to stay around 35' (ext length) to be ok in state parks.
What RLs do you own and why?
TIA

Have you considered a 5th wheel. Lots of RL options there and within your truck tow and payload rating if it is a reasonably new truck.

We had a 2011 Jayco 33RLDS. Rear living room with 2 slides going out on each side. The living room when open was 14 feet wide bt 12 feet long. Big and really nice. The one we had there was storage under both couches. A Jand and Jill bathroom. The newer 33RLDS had a third slide in the bedroom which was a closet if I remember right. GVW was 9950 and came out of the factory around 8225.

We have a 38’ Keystone Outback with rear living room and opposite slides and love it. Our TV is a’20 f250 6.7l diesel SRW that pulls it wonderfully.

I just sold my 2014 Jayco Eagle 338 RETS. We loved it for Lots of room. 3 slides, huge closet, washer-dryer hookup if you want one. The interior was very nice. Two swivel rocker recliners, couch table and 4 chairs. Storage, lots of storage. You can look at the floor plan on line.
We thought we would go south more in the winter, but do not. We pit about 35,000 miles pulling it around the country with no issues. Really, really liked it but sold it for a smaller one we can get into state and national parks with.
ld it for a smaller one we can get into state and national parks with.

I second the 5th wheel option. Easier to maneuver. Weight is less of an issue.

We looked at 5ers but we still want to keep the TC and do the beach thing. Maybe if my truck had the pucks in the bed we could go gooseneck but with only 3500 max payload we're still somewhat limited. I really want a F450 but we lose the beach camping. And we're ready to roll, now's not the time to buy a new truck. We've got a good truck with a good engine, according to Blackstone, and a tt is the way to go for us. But we may not find one for a couple years anyway.

We had a Keystone Passport Elite 31RE with opposing slides and loved it! We loved the kitchen too. We decided to go to a fifthwheel or else we would still have it. Perfect for the two of us.

Couldn't beat the living area in that trailer.
