Default Best hi lo

HI--New to this forum. Am kicking around the idea of purchasing a Hi Low trailer. I did a search for "Best HI LO" and nothing came up so am starting a new thread. I've had several pop ups, travel trailers and motorhomes. Did a lot of time in tents also. You might say that a guy my age would look for something bigger and less work to set up and such. But i'm looking for something to get the wife and myself into the woods further. I only have a couple needs when purchasing a rig. I'm 6'-4" tall and I need a bed that I can actually sleep in. I also need a little head room to move around. I think this limits me to the 24' models but not sure. Be nice to find a model that is less likely to leak--ha. Weight is no problem. Durability and functionality are pluses. So, if you can steer me in the right direction here that would be great. I can travel for right deal. Oh yea--The wife is picky so cleanliness is desired. Think I've covered everything here. Glad I found this forum. Sure can't find any forums for the travel trailers I've had in the past. Thanks much

hunter100, Welcome to the Hi Lo forum. At six-four your head WILL scrape on just about any Hi Lo. And the roof A/C shroud will be a head banger for you. I'm an even 6'er and I still duck under the A/C. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think the 24'ers have a queen bedroom. My 27'er does and those bigger also. BUT, these are RV sized queens, meaning they are just a bit shorter. My IS fitted with a full sized queen, and we have no problems. You can check the floor layouts on the net I'm sure. Also there is a link in the "reference" section of the forum.
That should get you started.

I am shrinking with age. Maybe one will "fit" someday--ha. I even hit my head on the AC in our current motorhome. I've seen some Hi Lo's with 77" ceilings--just not around here.

hunter, Back again. Also under the "reference" section, the is one labeled "Hi Lo owners manual". These are about 32 short videos describing the need to know systems of the Hi Lo. Pretty good info for the Hi Lo beginner with questions.
Please be patient (sp), as this is non-camping season for most of the US, people aren't real avid about checking the forum daily. So any questions you have will surly be answered soon.

hunter, BTW, 2019 Hi Lo Rally will be in your state this year, June I think. We went to the Branso, MO this passed June. Wonderful seeing old to new Hi Los. Prior to this, the most we ever saw at one time was three at St Andrews CG, Panama City, FL. These are truly RARE birds.

I see your eagle/flag and Andrews, NC address. Were you at Andrews Air Force Base? I did 2 month at Lejune way back when before going to Nam. I look for things to buy out of season hoping to get a better deal. Tax time coming up soon and people need money. I'll explore the different sites here soon. I did find a wanted section so far. Thanks

Hunter:

Check the Library section on the homepage and look for the "Hi-Lo Brochure" button. The brochures will give the specs for the various years and models. I believe the Classics have more interior headroom. For example, in the 2004 brochure, a 24LT interior height is 75.25 and the 24C (Classic) is 78".

Welcome

Default Welcome to the forum

I really can't add anything. You have been given some good advice. What will your tow vehicle be?
