Please note:
It’s important to note that with all brands you are going to find loyal fans of the brand and also detractors of the brand as well. No one brand is perfect. Where one brand excels another brand may not be so good. We can’t stress enough the need for you to research the brands you might be interested in. Talk to other owners, visit the models you might be interested in. Ask questions, lots of questions.

When it comes to travel trailer manufacturers you are going to come across quite a few of them in the industry. Many build multiple types and styles of travel trailers. A few of the larger manufactures own or operate other brands. For example Dutchman owns 8 different brands of travel trailers and each brand has its own unique selling point.

Like any other purchase you make often times you get what you pay for and buying a travel trailer from any manufacturers is no different. The more expensive ones tend to have higher quality material and features and the less expensive one use lower quality material in order to keep cost down. Do your research prior to choosing a brand and model and you should be just fine.
