It's more about finding the smaller trailers with multi slide!

How many companies actually make them?

So in other words what are my options to choose from, in companies that make multi slide trailers in this size range!?!?!
Obviously Keystone does as I posted a video example of how they are available!

Let's pretend I never mentioned the floor plan, once I find some options on different MULTI SLIDE Travel Trailers, I'll then look at them all to see what floor plans they offer in each & go from there.

So I'll ask again!

MULTI SLIDE UNDER 30 foot options?
If you are looking at other brands of trailers be sure to check out Lance, you are probably familiar with them from truck camping. Build quality doesn't get any better than Lance. And for fun look at Riverside RV, which offers models with retro decor.

So far te Fun finder dual slide looked real nice except I don't need a bunk house model.

It's just the 2 of us and 100 lb dog.
No kids.
But Wow a huge 11 foot fridge!
& great big storage doors big enough to get genis in & out of.

Now I'll go look at some shadow cruiser models then visit their web site & likely call to see about options if I order new?

You asked about quality. The shadow cruiser is probably built a little better.

My truck camper is a Lance, & I did look at a couple of lance trailers.

The one your showing does look very nice!

I can't remember what we didn't like about them?

The same lot had Outdoor rv TT's & maybe it was just that we like those better?

Seems like the ones you are most interested in are not Keystone or Thor Industries products. Have you checked the websites of these non-Keystone brands for info?

My thought exactly. I googled the criteria by the OP and there are lots of things to look at. Keystone may or may not have what he wants but many are from other manufacturers. I'm sure the OP can do the same thing.

Never heard of Thor?

But I am very interested in Keystone & have seen few different version in person.
I have no clue you came up with your assumption?

Forgive me for not being insightful enough to determine this . But do you mean 30' centerline "ball cup to back of bumper", or just the "box"?

No it was just that you were asking questions about non-Keystone brands that few on here may know anything about. Your best bet on those models is a forum about them. That way you would get first hand information.

Thor Industries is the parent company of Keystone and they make several different trailers.

30 foot maximum total.
Ball mount to rear bumper.

Only due to the awkward restricted angle I have allowed with space to get the trailer into its storage space.
A friend of mine dropped by to day that pulls a 35' total length trailer 90% of the time for his work & we at work place equipment like this in places you would never imagine.

I've been doing this line of work for about 20 years & yet wanted a 2nd opinion & asked him to take a look.
At 1st he said NO WAY!
Until I explained the angle & opened up my gate to show him & he agrees probably at the very most would be a 30 foot trailer bumper to mount with a electric dolly to drive it into the spot.

Once I clear the tight turn, I could store a 53 foot trailer back there, Its just clearing the turn with my neighbors wall in my way that restricts me.

But he gave me a great idea I can use my open car trailer & use wood or what ever to play with the length & see what I could back into the restricted curve.
Now to find a Rentable Electric trailer dolly to try this?

Thor is like General Motors: lots of brands under one roof. You'll have to look at the individual brands to see what is made.

THOR is an RV conglomerate that owns multiple RV manufacturers. There are some 18 different RV manufacturers, many of which produce multiple RV lines. Keystone, for instance is one of the THOR manufacturers and Keystone produces some 15 different brands. So given the 18 manufacturers, if each produces 5 or 6 brands, then THOR would be the "parent company" for over 90 different brands of travel trailers. Plus them manufacture several motor home lines.

There is a list of the "manufacturers" (not the brands) here: https://www.thorindustries.com/get-t...the-companies/ You would need to go to each manufacturer's website to see which brands they produce.

To answer your question: Might they have stopped making them" No, THOR is the biggest manufacturer of RV's in the world. If they stop making trailers, we're all in some "deep trouble"......

They are likely the same company that makes many freight trailers for the commercial trucking industry?

I don't believe THOR is involved in much other than the RV industry.

Good luck in your search. Enjoy! Even if you decide on a non-Keystone product let us know what you decide.

Why don't you try looking at all the MFG's web sites. Google travel trailer MFG's and you should have all the links you need. Much easier than expecting everyone else to do your leg work.

I have actually started calling the manufacturers directly to learn what they offer & the from the will talk to dealers & tell them what I want!
