    I'm buying my first RV and have a few questions.

    My tow vehicle will be a 2010 F-150 SuperCrew 4X4, short wheelbase, 5.4L V-8, 3.73 rear end, max towing package. Ford shows a max loaded trailer weight of 9,600 lbs.

    I'm looking at a ViewFinder V-24SD from CruiserRV: Length: 26' 5", Axle Weight: 3615 lbs, Hitch Weight: 795 lbs, GVWR: 6395 lbs, Cargo Capacity: 1985 lbs

    My Questions:

    (1) Is the ViewFinder durable, reliable, etc? I know the ViewFinder has been around a few years, and CruiserRV makes a few other lines (FunFinder, ShadowCruiser), but I've had a hard time finding any reviews or opinions from owners of ViewFinders or other CruiserRV products.

    (2) I've also looked at the Rockwood Windjammer. I'm a fan of the V-nose design. But the Windjammer is made by Forest River, which I see does not enjoy a great reputation. Am I correct in removing it from consideration? Are there other V-nose TTs I should look at? Or other conventional style 24' TTs which are especially well built?

    (3) Considering my tow vehicle and assuming I do buy the 24' ViewFinder, will a standard Class IV hitch work well, or do I need to look into load distributing hitches, sway bars, etc? Any recommendations?

    Thanks in advance.
