Default Travel Trailer / Pilot review

This is 3 years old, but I didnt find it here...

Lance?s New Travel Trailer: An Exclusive Look at the 1880


What I'm buying is very similar to this, but 3ft longer, 300lbs heavier dry weight (yet apparently the same 3800lbs wet) and a LOT more aerodynamic.

Those looking for lightweight & aerodynamic TT's for the Pilot to tow:

Nice unit. I had a good experience towing the trailer below for a couple years with my '03 until we upgraded to a larger one. Yours will surely pull better at highway speeds with the improved aerodynamics.

I've seen your picture pic on here! Very nice!

I think I'm paying more than the average 19-23 foot TT to get the light weight and aero advantage, so I expect good things!

More posts/pics will come when I have actual towing miles logged.

Nice campers - we have a 2011 Jayco SLX Swift 184 - have had it for a year and towed with our 06 Pilot 2wd - just upgraded to a 2012. The 06 towed it like a champ - no problems at all (we camp within a couple hours away at the most). Here is ours for another lightweight option - about 2600 dry - nice layout:

Your TT was one of the top 3 on our list! Nice trailer and great value.

Thanks - first time buying one - we loved the bunks with our 2 year old and 6 year old girls. Wife and I thought we better start now before they get too cool for us. Had a blast our first season and getting our new Pilot tow ready this week...
