My wife and I have bee talking about getting an AS for the last couple of years. It looks like this year we are going to take the leap. First a little about us:
We are in our early-mid thirties, no kids but may have one in the next year, three large dogs. We have been tent campers but have started to outgrow that. I have always loved AS and my wife has now decided that we should get one.
We are of the smaller is better mindset. The size that works for us is 19-23, with the 23 being the absolute limit.
We were looking at 20' Safari SE as they seem to be a good value and have depreciated enough that we shouldn't take a bath if we decide to have two kids and need to upgrade. I posted that one in the 2007 Safari forum and a lot of people thought that I should be looking at a 22-23'.
I found this '10 22FB Sport that is local to me and is priced around the same level. Obviously, you lose some of the niceties and farkles found in the higher-level units but it is a better floor plan for us. Our favorite floor plan is the 23FB with the 22FB a close (and cheaper and lighter) second.
Any thoughts on this unit or any suggestions of other similar units that are for sale that fit what we are looking for around a $30k price point? If this one checks out, what would be a fair price?
Any advise or comments are welcome.
