Sport vs. Flying Cloud vs. International

Newbie needing education. What are the differences here? It seems each has similar sizes in the 16-23' range. Is it the build out quality? Extras? I know this must me in some archive but so many forums not sure where to look.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

First off, welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us./

The Sport is the Chevrolet.

The Flying Cloud is the Buick.

The International is the Cadillac.

I think that the build quality is comparable. The difference is in the features and upgrades.

Brian

Thanks Brian. Very nice and simple reply and I appreciate it. I just asked another simple first question on a Toyota forum about the tow vehicle I just purched and was insulted by some "senior" member because it was too basic.
It is refreshing to have such a gracious answer. Thanks. I think I will like this forum.

I got the answer. It had to do with bed liners. I am going with Line X spray on liner. Thanks again.

Just starting to look and educate myself. Something in the 20' range I think but still learning the models and layouts. Much to take in.

The 17' and 22' Sports are 7' 3.25" wide while the other models are 8' wide. Curiously, the 16' sport is listed as 8' wide.

Why cant it be:

The Sport is the Ford.

The Flying Cloud is the Lincoln.

The International is the Bentley.

Check out the specifications for each. Luxury comes with weight penalty,

and you need a stronger horse to move it down the road.

BUT - you get some different options and features.....

My "Classic" vs the same size "Flying Cloud"

Disc brakes vs Drum brakes
Solid Wood vs Veneer
Corian vs Laminate
Porcelain vs Plastic

So - the weight might be a little more (my 25 footer Classic weighs 457 pounds more than the Flying Cloud - but I think for the components its a penalty worth every pound) but the tongue may be less (my tongue weight is 780lbs empty vice the Flying Cloud tounge weight of 837lbs empty)

Finding such a good deal on the "Classic" made that the trailer of choice for me (the lower tongue weight was major bonus as was the disc brakes) - an extra 457 pounds is water weight for me and I'm fine with that...

It's all about what you need in a trailer - for me I found my best match and willing take the extra few pounds of weight...
