Could you recommend a specific folding trailer like this?
« on: September 22, 2014, 03:21:36 AM »
Hey Guys,

I'm looking for folding trailer exactly same as Jayco 14HW Select which seems to stop production.
My requirements are below:

  1. slideout (U-shape preferable)
  2. Hard-sided shower room with cassette toilet
  3. 2 king beds
  4. Single axle
  5. Storage box in outside
  6. Another convertible bed except 2 expandable beds.

I have 5 kids so we're 7 in total.
1,2,4 are mandatory for me.
I'm going to move into Austin TX soon from another country.
So, I've been looking for appropriate camping trailer for my family but I couldn't around TX.
Please give me an info about which trailer would be adequate for my case.

One more question,
Is it easy to get a number plate of a trailer? (I'm asking about registration procedure)
Actually, I'm not good at English speaking as you may guess.

I'm not up to speed on the available floor plans, but can point you to some of the popular makers (in no particular order)
http://www.forestriverinc.com/PopUpCampers/
http://www.jayco.com/products/camping-trailers/
http://somersetrv.com/campers/
http://www.coachmenrv.com/CampingTrailers.aspx
http://www.palominorv.com/TentCampers/
http://www.starcraftrv.com/camping-trailers/

I'm probably forgetting some.....

Having just sold my popup (in favor of a motorhome), popups are fresh on my mind.
I'll comment about two of the items on your list.
I had a much smaller camper, bought when I only had 2 kids and they were very young.  I had the outside storage trunk on my must have list.  We ended up getting a Rockwood Freedom 1910, that has the front trunk.  I ended up coming to realize after owning it that I was pulling around a camper the equivalent size of a 12ft or 13 ft box, but only had the interior living space of a 10ft box.  I would have much rather had the larger box without the trunk, and with more seating space inside.  There is always storage under the seating, and some of it could be accessible from outside....
The trunk is nice in a way, but not as necessary as I once thought.

I would suggest that you reconsider the single axle requirement.  High Wall popups are BIG.  Finding one large enough to comfortably fit 7 people makes it BIGGER.  Finding one that also has the slide outs makes it even HEAVIER.

Oh, and if you really like that particular floor plan, why not search for a used one for sale?

Good luck!

slayerr,

I encourage you to look a bit more for dealers around the Austin area as there are quite a few within an hours drive from there. 

I know this because my wife and I have been looking around the Houston area and have found quite a number of dealers from outside Austin.  In fact, we just drove from North Texas to Houston this summer and we lost count of how many dealers we saw just from austin to outside of Houston.

Thank Brad for your advice.
I have a few reasons for single axle. I'm planning to bring it back to Korea in a couple of years and in Korea, it is crucial to have a single axle.
I'm seeking JAYCO SELECT 14 around TX for a several months but I couldn't find it unfortunately.
In case of storage space, that's the reason why I insist to have JAYCO SELECT 14. Because it has a storage box outer space.
I don't see the point why JAYCO stop making SELECT 14 model.
It's very brilliant and convenient.

Thank tsubeta04 for your info.
I keep my eyes on dealers around TX on the net.
But I couldn't find JAYCO SELECT 14 so far. I wish I could get it as soon as possible though..

I'm very curious about the Jayco a frames that are new this year.

I've gotten a few hits for some possibilities on this site:http://rvs.oodle.com/used-rvs/for-sale/?q=a+frames&oldq=a+frames&o=45&inbs=1


happy hunting!

I want to reiterate one point....
That outside storage might seem brilliant, but having owned a popup with one, it's not the show stopper I thought it would be.  In my opinion anyway. 
I really wanted it, but came to realize that i would have been better off without it....
