Award RV Travel Trailers, Any Good?

#1
I'm looking for a light towable trailer and recently saw the Award RV Travel Trailers. They seem to be well built and have a unique styling. Anyone have any experience with them?

Although the company A.B.I. is no longer in existance, the Award trailers were a pretty good product, extremely light weight. Well cared for should provide many years of good service. I do have a problem with the way they mount the a/c on a slant.

I have not had any personal experience with the Award trailer but have heard mostly good things about them. Here is a web site that you may be interested in. It seems that they are still being manufactured, but not by the original company.

Also, you may want to do a Google search for "Award Travel Trailers"
Hope this helps you out.

BSmith,

Thanks for posting the link. I've actually found 4 used ones in my area since I started looking. One had SEVERE fiberglass delamination problems (run away fast!!!) so that was out. The others looked decent but were more expensive than new models of other trailers. I'm not sure if they're that much better or not. Thanks again for remembering and posting the link for me.

I have an Award (classic 30) which I bought used 2 years ago from the factory in Dunville. I had problems with the brakes and it turned out to be a defective axle. They replaced it no charge and have been really good with general service and follow up. The majority of the parts are easily obtained and the level of craftmanship is very high.

I tow it with a 318 V8 Dakota and get good mileage (average 12 but sometimes 15 mpg) at about 60mph. It handles so well sometimes I don't bother to use anti sway bars. Just for fun you might want to consider checking out what the factory has in used units and driving over to take advantage of the cheap Canadian $.
