Hello Andrew,
I've towed my 2012 210UDS on gravel and dirt roads. I've towed it on logging/mine roads. It tows great. Yes-things bounce around and slide around inside but good planning helps. The trailer is very durable and I'm pleased with the unit.

Hi thank's for reply much appreciated I used to own a 2001 Mercedes sprinter motor home but sold it to purchase a Travel Trailer as you call them we call them a caravan the only problem with the motorhome was if you had to go some where you had to take your home with you when returning someone would have taken your park so now I can parkup and go fishing in my truck and come back and my park is still there.
