SS or FB. Get the FB

This our opinion after going back and forth between the two at the dealership

SS, Same bed and bath as our old 19 footer.
Bed too small and too hard to make.
Bath way too small and NO knee room. Shower small too.
Dinette, Your back is to the sofa so when you entertain someone always has their back to others.

FB. Big bed.
Bath has roooommm and the shower across the hall is larger.
Floorplan, When you entertain you can fit in more in a more sociable setting.
T.V. Viewing. If you put your T.V. up against the fridge and put down the table and pull out the couches you'll have more room than you can believe.

Of course you can tell which one we got.

Go to a dealer and go in both and run back and forth between the two. Go sit in the baths and stand in the showers. Both of you hop in the beds and sit around the lounges and have the salesman drop the tables and pull out the sofa's. That way you will know exactly what you are getting.

I'd rather be boon docking in the desert.

Having owned a SS and currently a 25'FB there is a larger pantry and closed space in the SS. The shower in our SS was much larger than the shower on our current FB. Tollet area on the SS was cramped as compared to the FB. In the SS the TV was mounted on the bulkhead behind the dinnett. I used computer speakers mounted behing the sofa to enhance the sound level when viewing fronm the couch. That was the only problem I had with the SS. Without the extra speakers from the TV the sound level was kept to a minium.

The SS is a great package but not for more that 2 people and I believe that is true for most of the AS's.

Either way you go is a good decission. Both have advantages and disadvantages.
