I think Norm raises a good point. It's hard to tell from your original post whether you are experienced RVers or novices, but many people go through several trailers before settling on what really works for their own style of travel. Rather than plunk down $40-$60K for a brand-new trailer like Oliver
or Airstream, it might make sense to purchase a used Scamp
, or whatever for $10-$20K, use it for a season or two, and then reevaluate what you really need.
Because FG trailers generally hold their value well, you would likely be able to sell it for close to what you paid. And if you do decide in the end to order the brand-new trailer of your dreams, you'd have something to use while it is being built. Most of the fiberglass manufacturers have wait times of 3-10 months for new units.
