One big slide and the weight for a quality aluminum frame and fiberglass trailer will be a little over 5,000 pounds.
I like Rockwood, Nash, Outdoor RV, and Arctic Fox in that size. Good storage.
For a long trip I will be using my shower as a closet.

If you'd ditch the 2nd slide then you have all kinds of options.

I actually like the way you think as the wife and I are ready to retire, we simply don't want a GIANT trailer for pulling out west or navigating the beautiful state parks in VA and WV.

We are also looking at several trailers and 28ft will be are absolute max, bumper to tongue even though my truck can pull 18K. Lol
My family is getting bigger (kids aged 7 and 4) and we already downsized from a 35ft TT to a 24ft TT. We wanted more ease, more boondocking and less stuff. It's hard to enjoy the State Parks when they can't accommodate a larger trailer.
