Looking to purchase a new to me TH. My question is, which TH can handle off-road driving, I've heard certain frames can crack. Would like to be able to fit a jeep in the garage. 5th wheel/GN is preferred. Weight isn't an issue, just looking for something that will be more durable, we have a Ram 5500 truck.

Also are full sheet aluminum roofs better durability in the long run?

Brands I've considered FR Work&Play, ATC, Sundowner.

Look up millennium trailers. They are solid trailers.

can you tow a fifth wheel with a 5500? Is it flat bed or pickup? Might be too tall unless trailer is lifted.

Yes you can, there's an aluminum flatbed on the truck with removable sides. It's on air airbags so the ride height can be adjusted to the 5th wheel.

If you want quality gooseneck look at Sundowner toy haulers. Very well built although quite a bit more simple than the other RV mfg’s who put a bunch of fancy features in their TH’s.

I would think if you want to haul a Jeep you would need more of a modified car hauler with living quarters rather than a typical toyhauler trailer.

Curious what issues you've had? I looked at a tornado damaged 222. It was tipped at a 45* angle against another trailer while it was new on a dealers lot. I have a Jayco TT but really not that impressed with the brand.
