Good Grief, Sam!
Cyclone toy-hauler, but at 44' long and very nearly 16,000 pounds empty weight it was certainly not anywhere close to what we wanted to see.
Landmark 365 models. It was beautiful, but was very nearly as heavy and large as the Cyclone, and was essentially unusable with the slides in. So much for overnighting at Wallyworld. Many of the trailers we saw had this fatal flaw. An amazing number had residential 110v. refrigerators. So much for economical boondocking!
Wildcat Maxx because it was a "compact 5th wheel." The smallest one they had at the show was over 31' long. It did have some nice features but wasn't available with thermopane windows, and it was still significantly larger than what we wanted.
Glacier Peak Kokanee by Outdoors RV. The layout was very nice with a large dinette at the back, leveraging the potential view. Thermopane windows were available, but in a package that included the massive TV and fireplace. The trailer was accessible with the slide in, but the fridge was located in the slide which suggests it may not vent well.
Fox Mountain 235RLS and the Arctic Fox 27-5L - both made by Northwood Manufacturing. The Fox Mountain came closest to our target size at 27 feet, but the shower and sink were incorporated in the bedroom. The Arctic Fox was 29' but you had to go 4' longer to get a rear living room in an Arctic Fox.
Less than four hours at the rally was plenty for us!
