It has been many years since we have owned a trailer but now that "R" life has settled down a bit, we thought it would be a great time to get back into it. We decided on a 2020.5 195 with the starlight interior. "R" plan is to bring it home the first of the year and spend a few months getting things ready. Likely we will take a few small local trips between the new year and spring. Joining us will be a couple of pups and of course Karen and I. Once of the biggest reasons we decided on this unit is the still small size, however packed with the items we felt we need as we go many adventures. We will be pulling this with a 2013 f-150 with the 3.5 ecoboost motor.

You will love that camper. I got mine last june and camped its ass off till the end of october. More than enough storage, I actually keep my clam screen house (about 6.5 feet tall folded up) in the camper full time. It fits right under the overhang of the bed, with my flagpole, so it's not in the way if we dont set it up. I might get the 196 if I were looking again, or the 192 if they add the slide out, but i'm super happy with my 195.

Thank you for your reply. I was most interested in the 192, but not having a slide was a deal breaker to me. I would imagine that a slide will be added at some point. It does come in at a little cheaper price point not having the slide so that might be their angle. I was tossed up between the 195 or 196, however I believe the 195 will work well for us. I do like the sofa style a lot that the 196 has.

I have a 196 and really like it.  I had a 179 before.  Towing with 2016 Dodge Durango V-6 and at 60 with no headwinds and in 7th gear I get 14 mpg or better.

We had a tough time deciding between the 195 and the 196......finally went with the 196 and our first outing will be this weekend.
