Our 5th summer with the unit. Ideal size for a couple and a dog. The tip-out option provides enough room for all of us. The tip-out is rugged and continues to work without any problems along with the power awning. The electric tongue Jack is the best! The tires were initially filled with nitrogen and held between 57 and 63 psi for three years before we needed to add air. The tires are top grade steel belted radials and we’ve taken this unit to Florida and back. There’s about 10,000 travel miles on the camper now and the tires look barely worn. They ar holding up exceptionally well.
Shower is small however the bathroom is very functional. The water pump provides adequate pressure and is still working flawlessly. The refrigerator works well. It is a bit confusing at first with the gas, on/off electric and possible battery drain. Remember to turn the battery draw to the off position with switch located in the outside storage bin access under the bed.
Water heater is powerful and heats up the water very quickly. It does use around 10x the gas volume of the refrigerator (my estimation after using the unit for five years) but the hot water is worth the extra gas use.
Took out the manual ceiling skylight and had Camping World put in an electric unit with the auto close rain sensor. I won’t ever live without this feature on any future camper.
The heater heats up the interior space in about five minutes. The unit hold the heat in well.
The windows work well, slide easily and don’t stick. Cross ventilation is good. There is plenty of cupboard space.
The black and grey water tanks valve handles are easily accessible, have always sealed well, and the unit is easy to empty. The flush ring for the black water tank is priceless for moving all solids out of the septic holding tank.
Radio and CD player work well. Installed a 19” Furion LCD TV high on the wall at the foot of the bed that can be watched from the dinette or bed. The set up works well and should be offered as a standard option.
My four issues that give me heartburn. The bed fills the front from side to side and the person sleeping on the inside has to climb over the person sleeping on the outside. We accepted this fact as not a big deal when we bought it, but now after five years find it a bit of an issue.
The dinette is small and the seating uncomfortable. Can’t be used as a bed except for a child under 4’ 6” tall.
The propane tank is held on by two bolts with no tank cover. They should have made a tank cradle that the gas tank drops into and is secured with a wingnut metal band. A nice secure plastic housing would have also been nice.
The last thing is the stabilizing jacks. They are one leg extensions, flimsy, and can bend easily if the camper is not close to level upon extending these. It would be great to have a stronger scissor Jack option available or as standard equipment.
Would I buy it again. Most definitely I would. The towing is effortless with a 6 cyl Jeep Cherokee. The equalizer tow bar package keeps the rig sway free. No leaks in the unit and all the appliances continue to work well (knock on wood).
