i agree with bill gibbs. Cardinals are not all they are cracked up to be. they are a nice camper, but fall victim to the same problems, much cheaper, lesser trailers do. a nice used one is often more value for money than new. in my opinion.Also agree, teton make a nice trailer, if not a little on the heavy side in comparison, but well built coach, although really to get the good quality with teton, I have seen it more in their 5th wheels.Airstream. although no where near the quality they used to be, since thor took over, still a nice trailer. I personaly HATE working on them, its like working with dynamite, just waiting to mess up. but they are a nice trailer, over priced i think, but you also buying a 'status symbol'. and structurally, pretty well built. they hardly ever leak anyway..
:dont accept this answer, it is merely adding to what was already said by Bill.:
