First: I agree with FCStreamer " expenses for enjoyment"
We purchased a 2016 22FB and several factors were considered in addition to cost. The tow weight of the SPORT vs the Flying Cloud, we are towing with a 2014 Jeep GC and the lighter weight and narrow width makes for easier towing ( although a bit narrower inside). We are satisfied with the overall value and quality of the SPORT and were not interested in the upgraded finishes. ( we were coming from tent camping).
We traveled over 1500
miles this summer through Maryland, WV and Virginia and the tow was comfortable, even with the 6 cylinder Jeep. Backing up is a breeze and we were able to find some great secluded sites in Gambrill State Forest and Rocky Gap State Park.
Most important don't skimp on the hitch setup:
get a good quality WD Hitch ( I won't get into brand names here, that's reserved for other threads) and a brake controller on your TV.
I'm sure whatever your choice you will be happy with your AS. Enjoy!
