I like the couch as opposed to cushions on plywood that separate and move, the opening kitchen window, the tinted window protector around the panoramic window for privacy and insulating properties, the open floor plan of a convertible dinette and the galley counter not protuding into the walkway, the size of the bathroom with his and her closets inside the bathroom with wooden pocket doors. I like the entrance door being more central to the unit and under the awning. The location of the heating ducts and the position of seating in relation to outside walls will make for warmer lounging and it is easier than scooting and contorting to enter the booth. The outlets are located under the table and the dinette storage is awkward to access and you must crawl under the table on hands and knees. The couch storage is easy to access. The FB dinette made into a bed is much higher in the middle than at the foot and the head, whereas the couch makes a comfortable and large bed.

We may be taking more work camping positions and a larger more comfortable space will be more condusive to relaxing and spreading out with two adults, two dogs and a cat. The unit itself is also another foot longer and has twin beds for additional storage, extra walk room, another day use area and large rear opening exterior storage door. It will fit my ladder and much more. I also like the carpeting and the formica tabletops more than the lino and beautiful hickory wood that I worry so about not scratching! I have also heard that the rear bedroom is easier to exit from in an emergency than the side window would be.

Carol, it looks like a good find and a lot closer to home. It also appears it has 40# lp tanks instead of 30#. Am I correct? Certainly we are biased but the amount of room in a 28' twin is amazing. I know you will enjoy it. And remember, time and money can fix anything so if you want vista's and sky lights just drop by Jackson Center!!!!
