Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.

We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

2016 Hwartland North Trail 31BHDD - Any Pros and Cons?



Getting at dealer store. Before I planned to buy Heartland Prowler 22lx (I mentioned that on this forum already) but I changed my mind and now want something spacious. Is this one a good selection?

Compared to your previous pick the Prowler22LX....More space, yes... but cargo capacity is lower than the Prowler. Less freshwater capacity. Neither of these may mattter much if you are only using for a few days at a time since it is probably unlikely that you will be hauling a ton of gear etc for such short trips (suggested by your comment on the other thread you started). I could, of course, be wrong and your load out might test those limits.. everybody has their own needs after all. Higher tongue weight and 2000 extra pounds of trailer may require a sturdier tow vehicle than you have currently or are considering. Considerably more expensive.

My other comments on your previous consideration still apply. Knowing how you plan to use it should be your first consideration in order to narrow down the rigs most suitable to your needs. Everybody is different in this area and what might work for any "advisor" on this forum or elsewhere may not work for you. 

Again FWIW, Brian

The North Trail trailers are apparently popular up here in the Texas hill country at the state park where we are hosting. There were two of them here last weekend and the families seemed to love them. One was about 24-25 feet long  and the other about 30 feet long.
