Looks like A/S changed the site yesterday since all the stats were still TBD as of the last weekend.
Interestingly enough this trailer is a full 29' long. So much for calling it a 28' model. Its also seriously heavier. It must be a much beefier frame since its GVW is over 9,000 lbs. Hitch weight is 1,040 so from a towing standpoint we aren't talking about the same class of vehicle that can pull the rest of the Safari line.
Personally we really did like the 25' unit but didn't like the corner bed, and the smaller storage space so we went with the 27'.
This new Safari looks nice and as much as my wife would like the dinnette, it would mean a new tow vehicle. My 27' Safari comes in at a little over 6,000 lbs. with our stuff in it. Unloaded weight on the new unit is 6,600 lbs. so you could be approaching 7,000 lbs. once you load it up.
