04 Safari 28 W
Picked up our '04 Safari 28W 2 weeks ago. To read my initial post, search "Guess what followed me home...."
Although it's my first A/S, I feel that the floor plan is ideal for my growing family. As far as I can tell, it's the "smallest full-on" A/S (other than the 28 CCD), meaning that it has a separate bedroom, bath, dinette, and couch. Smaller models force a decision between these four. All 4 of these spaces are really important to us.
The 28 W, I believe, comes with most acoutrements standard. The only options available are trim upgrade package, a spare tire, second fantastic fan, electric hitch, sky light, and LCD TV. I believe it is the only Safari with a standard No Fuss Flush system as well. The solar and stone guards, LP Gas cover are all standard. I think that a trim upgrade kit like my Amarillo adds a lot to the overall interior; it gives you black countertops which looks much more contemporary than the standard white countertops. It actually makes the unit resemble the International A/S series. Unfortunately, there is no place for a microwave so it is not offered as an option. However, I'm pretty sure a small unit could be placed in one of the storage bays above the L-couch.
Regarding the combined 70 gallon black/gray tank, I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. The advantage would be not having to empty as often obviously; I would have to fill the fresh water tank at least twice before the combo tank would need to be emptied (I suppose this would be helpful for a growing family). On the otherhand, I wouldn't be able to dump gray water any where I wanted it; I have since heard that many RV parks prohibit this practice anyway because of the possibility of harsh detergents and such ruining their property. So far, all I can say is that it is easier to dump one tank than two.
I'll be posting pictures soon.
