We started out with a 26' Overlander and used it for about 6 years before moving up to a 31' Sovereign
. I remember looking at a Sovereign
before I bought the Overlander and thinking that I wouldn't want to pull something that big, but when towing I don't even notice the difference.
It's inside that the difference is significant. The Sovereign
seems much more than 5' longer. Several people mentioned the bother of having to make up beds, and one of our goals in getting the Sovereign was to sleep 6 in permanent beds. We now have three sets of bunk beds, and we don't have to convert the dinette to a bed.
We still have the Overlander. The goal is to eventually restore it in 1964
style for traveling for two, but for now, traveling with 4 kids, the Sovereign is a good size, although I do have my eye on this old Spartan...
