    I am new to the RV world and love it.
    I am thinking about buying a 28' or smaller travel trailer (pull behind) that I can pull with my 1/2 ton p/u. I have been doing my homework regarding weights and hitches but I need help with knowing what brands are of a good quality. From reading this forum I think I should stay away from Forest River, but do they manufacture under other names? What is a good unit and what should I stay away from?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Also... I am thinking of buying in the 4-8k range and I am seeing lots of options in age from 1980's to 2006 models.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance,

    First of all, the very best place for an inexperienced RV buyer to get quality information is to join the RV Consumer Group.

    They will supply a great deal of information about quality and how to judge them. There is a very wide range in budgets but if you are looking at the lower end of the marked, then I suggest that you start with Keystone as they are reasonably good quality for a pretty low price. As you go up the price line you also increase in quality, as a general rule. But just to be sure, that is where people like the RV Consumer folks come to play.
