What do yo have for a tow vehicle? That will also detirmine what lenght and weight of trailer your looking at. For your price range it is quite feasible to buy a good used unit and still upgrade TV. I own a 24 foot model and it serves us well for short periods of time (my wife, daughter 2 little dogs and I). It pulls easy, I don't even use an equalizer hitch. If we were full timing, I'd buy at least a 31 footer longer if I could upgrade vehicles as well since I drive a half ton truck. For anything longer I would use an equalizer hitch. Pulling around local area with no hills is no problem but the challange comes driving through Tenn. or out west, you don't want to burn out a transmission. I've heard it said,"Buy the biggest Airstream you can handle because you're gonna like it and want a bigger one soon afterwards anyways". I think it's true becasue I want at least a 31 footer in addition to our 24 footer.
