We own a Transcend, and I've found it to be fairly good workmanship so far. Zero defects so far aside from some sealant needed on the roof after a year, which is normal.

The fridge in the slideout is problematic across all of their product lines, so be sure to check the baffle inside the rear of that compartment and make sure it stays in place and rises all the way past the cooling fins. Since there's no roof vent, airflow across the cooling fins has to be induced with a cooling fan.

Hmm...I count 5 windows.
Maybe just me, but I would prefer not to have the galley in a slide.
Nice big bath.
I wonder how you keep pets in a drawer. Mine wouldn’t like it.


We want a couples trailer with a dinette on the door side to watch over the animals...
Why would anyone want to sit and look out at their neighbors camp site with most couch/dinette slides???


I agree.

Why would you want a bath at one end and the bed at the other? Will you have blinds over all the windows, or just streak?


I love my rear bath TT. It really opens up the floor plan and makes the trailer seem much more roomy. I would never own another TT without the rear bath.

You can close the window blinds easily. Or, just pull on some clothes in the bathroom. I guess if you like to sleep in the buff (and I sometimes do) it would be more inconvenient then. But, when I do that I just close the window blinds.

The major issue I see with that layout is zero access to any of the storage with the slide in, and no access to anything in the kitchen on the road. If you have somewhere you can open the slide to pack and if you don't do long travel days neither are deal breakers.
