I do think that Bold hit upon one of AS's strengths that fails to garner enough attention.

Had we not purchased an AS bambi, we likely would have purchased a Forest River 22 foot type of unit (similar layout as the 22 sport; really the only other thing we saw that came as any type of serious contender).

But come on, at ½ the price you know that is is built more cheaply. And power slide, power awning, heated bed mattress, outside BBQ and TV, all of these to me were things that WOULD fail, and likely fail at inconvenient times and be a PITA to repair 1000 miles from home.

Our AS salesperson (who is probably age 30) made the offhand comment about they make them wider with slides, and then they just cram more stuff in them anyway. Then you start to realize that the huge "basements" are the only way that the SOBs come close to getting their center of gravity low. Give people lots of storage so that they load up the floor and put lots of weight on the tongue.

The non-slide simplicity of the AS is to me, a benefit that I would hope AS could capitalize and use as a point of differentiation in the marketplace. Simple can be good.

It is pretty much true, more space = more crap that people don't use.

Most people are hoarders right up to the space available.

Just true.


Brevi tempore!
