I had Triton quote me a similarly-equipped trailer, less generator or fuel station.

It was $8k more than what I paid for this. I did not talk to RPM or Mirage, but I did talk to Charmac. Charmac was the only comparable make, but overall I went with Double R because they were very good to deal with during the build process, and I really can't stress that enough. They will build whatever you want however you want and are more than willing to work with you on custom details. I was really very happy with that overall. I'm sure there are a few things I would have had them change now that I look back on it, but this was primarily due to me not knowing *precisely* what I wanted and them doing the best possible way they could in lieu of that, so I I sure can't complain.

IMO, if I'd had to order this same deal again I'd have had them not build the cutout in the doorway and I'd have had them build the passenger-side front window about 3' farther back .... but, I was the one who spec'd where to put the windows in the first place, so this was of my own doing

The generator compartment and cabinets came out great. I might have had them duct the heater had I to do it over again, but overall ..... I sure can
t complain. They will build whatever you want for a pretty fair price .... I am really happy with the way this whole thing turned out

Welp, after having my trailer for awhile now (even though the only miles I've put on it go something like this ... bring it home from Idaho, 2 weeks later haul it to the local trailer shop to have a bunch of **** fixed on it that should have come working from the builder, take it up the mountain for one trip, bring it home) .... here is my review.

1.) I will never buy another product from Double R again.

2.) The $4500 Cummins/Onan generator they sold me ... they conveniently forgot to tell me, at any time, during the build process that this genset REQUIRED a converter charger to stay running. I had stated numerous times I wanted this to be a self-contained unit, that when it was in the parking lot it ran off generator power ON ITS OWN, when it was in my driveway it got plugged into the wall. Needless to say, neither worked upon delivery. The C/O genset would run for about 15 minutes before shutting off because there was no converter charger installed. This royally pisses me off, because when you consider I paid nearly $6,000 for the genset and transfer switch, they for damned sure could have mentioned "Oh yeah you need to also buy this $300 part and have us wire it in to actually make the genset work" .... seriously, WTF was I gonna do, pay them $6,000 for all the electrical hardware then balk at $300 FOR THE **** TO ACTUALY WORK?????

I had called and talked to them about this, and I was nice enough about it, I wasn't very happy they couldn't have bothered to let me know I needed this, but I was just like "Ok fine I'll install it myself".

3.) So, as a result of #2, I take it to the local trailer shop who has been doing RV's for some 25 years and does some of the best work I've ever seen before to have the converter charger PROFESSIONALLY installed, not a hack job by yours truly. The shop owner pulled the trailer into the shop, and decided to check everything out electrically before he tore into it .... the second he plugged it into the wall outlet, the breaker on the 50-amp transfer switch tripped, then blew the breaker in his shop. After several tries, same deal. Plugged another RV right next to it in, guess what, it doesn't blow the breaker in his shop. So he and his tech verify all the wiring, it is in fact wired up correctly, and its pretty obvious the transfer switch is faulty. So I call up Double R, and they at least got ahold of Intellex, after basically telling me the guy who I had look at this was wrong and being pretty stubborn about it. I told him I was having the local shop keep a separate ticket an he was going to get the bill for the labor to remove the old transfer switch and install the new one, which he balked at....I guess he talked to Intellex, and he told me that *THEY* would cover the labor to replace it, since it was their faulty product. Needless to say, when the intellex rep showed up, they told the local guy that they weren't liable for labor. So now I'm on the hook for it. The local guy apparently talked to the Intellex regional sales guy or something and 'they're working on it', so we'll see, but either way, as it stands right now I'm on the bill for the labor to fix it ..... and that labor charge will only increase, see item #5

4.) The 42k btu heater had the intake set right next to the exhaust. The return air was also not ducted to anywhere. The heater was not even mounted solid in the cabinet. I did not order a "ducted" heater from them but based on my understanding of what that meant, it meant they didn't duct the outlet of the heater into the walls of the trailer with various vents .... As I understood it, the return air, air intake, exhaust, would all be ducted appropriately and the heater outlet would just blow straight into the trailer. As a result of all this, I couldn't run the heater longer than about 15-20 minutes before it would shut itself off on high temperature. It had no air intake for which to get air through, it was basically blinded off right next to the exhaust on the outside of the trailer .... So, I had to have the local guy fix the heater as well. The intake is now ducted to the "helmet cabinet" ... lol .... and it blow a whole hell of a lot of hot air out now. This is how it should have come from them in the first place.

5.) The "fuel station". The "fuel station" also feeds the generator, but it has a fuel pump on the external side of the trailer. I tried to use this for the first time last weekend. It took us about 45 minutes to fill three sleds up with it. It has what appears to be a properly sized pump, but they ran a soft rubber hose to the suction of the pump then ran that into the TOP of the fuel tank, not the bottom, so a) the pump has very little suction head on it and b) the soft rubber hose kinks and flat out collapses, restricting the flow into it. In short, the thing barley pisses 1/10th of a gallon of gas out every minute due to the piss-poor suction setup on the pump, I'm going to have to drop the whole f-ing tank out to fix it most likely ... AND..... it didn't even come with a filter on it anywhere. I seriously dbout there is one in the tank, but I guess we'll know for sure when I drop it and see. I haven't even called them about this and after the run-around they gave me with the transfer switch, I'm not going to.

6.) The insulation on the side walls. Apparently they didn't bother glueing this, they just cut the sheet and set them in there ..... several slabs of it have already 'fallen down' so they are visible through the eTrax .... wow, a little glue was too much effort and $$$ to get the insulation to stick in place?

So in short, the construction of this trailer is really no better or worse than anyone else, and virtually every accessory they sold me hasn't worked right and I've had to have someone else come back and fix it. Keep in mind this trailer has ony been hauled home and hauled sleds *ONCE* so far .... so who knows what I'll find as the season goes on?

All in all, they sold me a $31,000 pretty looking turd. Definatley would not buy another trailer again from them at this point.
