New Fiberglass travel trailer?

I was on I-80 today and I saw what appeared to be a new Molded fiberglass travel trailer. It was sorta tallish and around the high teens in length. It appeared to be gray gelcoat with a single word name which, although I was determined, I have failed to remember...
Maybe something like "Advantage" but I doubt that was it....
Anybody know something about it?
I was sorta squarish, but still shapey, with interesting recessed areas.

Can't think of any but I have been fooled a number of times the ALU framed ones with molded fiberglass front and rear caps. Like Keystone Vantage. Google that one to see what I mean.

No doubt it was a 19 ft Vantage! There was heavy traffic and I just got a glimpse, but that shape at the back is unmistakable! Thanks Ken!

Yowza!!!

Now if THAT was only a real egg instead of a sticky (and if you seal up the bleepin' slide thingy!)

I might stand in line to get that 29RLS in a real egg!

That 19' is shockingly heavy ! Almost 5000 pounds shipping weight.

Great looking trailer and all that storage and if only, it was not made by Keystone. Having followed the RV industry for about 30 years, I would avoid Keystone like the plague. Sure is pretty though. Starcraft has one that is silver and very pretty but, again, not a good product. I even know some "interesting" facts about the high end trailers and the realities versus the ads. Leaks and all the pressed/glued together wood scraps? Not again. Also another major issue are the weights that are, well, played with and when you get BIG and start fudging, not good! So, that's why I am here!

The 19 is actually 23'7 overall. The look nice, inside and out, but go way beyond what I want, and that is to pull with a V6. One reason Bigfoot was ruled out for me.

Wow, that makes our 'wide body' Burro look a bit more narrow!
