So my SUV can pull up to 5000 pounds and I am trying to see if any other company sells this floorplan. This one works but there aren’t any available within like 2 states. I like that the bedroom is in the back, all solid walls, and the couch and dinner is table all face the tv area. Does anyone know of anyone else?

More importantly what can your SUV carry? (Payload) That TTs bedroom isn’t in the back and I’m betting it’s way over 5k loaded and wet.

Bedrooms in the front.
That one will be too heavy. 4468# UVW per brochure will be more when you add propane and batteries.
Big concern even if you could tow it is the scary low CCC of 740#.
Minus propane and batteries you'll end up with only 600-650# for cargo. Thats doable for some folks but then you'd be maxed out on the TT which is not good.
If you only have a 5000# tow rating then your receiver is probably rated around 500# as well. With a 5000# TT the recommended TW will be around 700+#'s.

While on paper it may seem doable I think once you actually load up it's probably too much.

Don't confuse empty weight with GVW or loaded weight. Empty weight doesn't take in account, batteries, propane, and fresh or waste water, spare tire or any options. my SUV is rated to pull 5,000# I am looking at trailers in the 14 to 17 foot range with empty weights under 3,000#. I've been doing this for over 40 years and know what a bad experience it is to tow more than you should. Takes all the fun out of it. Smaller trailer or bigger truck. No other options.

Dry weight is only 3800. I was thinking with a propane tank and batteries maybe 4200? That’s not bad right?

What is the payload of your SUV? You can find it on the tire sticker on the driver’s door jamb.
This is usually more important than the tow rating.

Try rvtraders.com. Using the filters on that site and you can find the exact model you are looking for. It lists one at Family RV, which is out of California, but I don't know how close that is to you.

Good luck!!!

Only 3806 dry with a GVWR of 6000lbs which is over your tow capacity. You need to look at your payload capacity most importantly too as others have said. Also what is your SUV??? How many occupants will you have in the vehicle while towing and what would the total weight of they be? Being a 5000lb capacity I bet its a smaller SUV with a 700lb cargo capacity and towing that trailer you would most likely be over all the SUVs capacities......we need more info!!!!

Payload and receiver ratings are typically exceeded well under tow ratings for (assuming) mid-sized SUVs. Just pay attention to those also. RV veterans, can you move on and also answer OP's questions about floorplan and similar TTs?
