Have a 2014 model 3010 and love the floor plan. Did not have the recliner option at that time so I replaced the sofa with lazy boy reclining love seat. That sofa was the most uncomfortable thing to sit in plus terrible to sleep in. Good luck and enjoy your sun seeker.

I wanted to consider the Class A, but my wife was not comfortable driving a "Bus". She drove our old Class C, so we just went with a large Class C. I was OK with that because I can have a beer (or two) with lunch and she drives. We also like the overhead for quick storage.

I have a 33' TT. DW won't pull it (which is ok) but a back up driver is great when one wants to relax after 400 plus mile's with a couple/few cold ones. Good part about a class C

I do believe that SS intends you to drink a lot. Why else would there be 4 drink holders in a cab with 2 seats? 《insert picture of little guy holding frosty mug here》

2014 3010ds

I purchased my 3010DS in Feb, I especially like the wide open living area , large fridge and long counterspace. Mine has a huge Tv and cabinets overhead and I thought I would miss the storage/ sleeping space but it has tons of storage. Haven't had others sleepover yet but the couch makes a nice bed and in a pinch can use the dinette too. After looking at a number of other Class c's this model has the best windows, when camping by the lake I have great views in every direction. The other feature I love are the little windows on the bedroom slide that open. Best of luck to you whatever you decide on.

For pricing you can spec out a Forester at RV wholesalers and a sunseeker at RVDirect. Both will get you a quote in seconds that will be tough for any to beat...

The FR3s I haven't seen carried by those guys yet though.

Wd have a 2015 3010ds but not much has changed since then. We often take 7 people and it's a floor plan that works well as long as you are all friendly! With 7, the large kitchen and fridge are great. As was mentioned, the dinette is large enough to sleep a large adult or two kids. Very few dinettes are long enough.

The pullout couch makes a nice size bed...but one word of warning....a topper of some kind is a must....it's horrible to sleep on otherwise but The topper makes it very nice.

The only thing I don't like is the small shower and bathroom...the under 150 pounders in our family have no issues but I don't qualify for membership in that group! We knew going in it was small but it's a compromise we live with since the floor plan works so well for us. Im seriously considering remodeling the toilet area by replacing the counter/ sink with something smaller...there is actually a decent amount of space in there but the counter takes up a lot of the width. Can't do too much about the shower but, as was mentioned above, we use one of those flip out shower curtain rids above the glass door. It's gives us larger guys a little more room, while still allowing us to use the door for the kids...less water on the floor that way!

We had a few warranty issues at the beginning, like everyone else, but overall are very happy with the 3010ds. We have about 20,000 miles and 6 months travel time logged so far.

Not sure what you mean by the 3210 has all the options you need when the FR3, which stands for FR, 30 amp class A. One A/C unit. It does come in the same floor plan as the 3010. You get a real RV chassis with 19" wheels, if i recall correctly , high overall height, watch your head so you do not bump it on a low overpass, With the much higher ceiling you increase the interior cubic feet that has to be heated or cooled with the same A/c or furnace as in the 7 foot over head of the 3010.

I have converted my 3010 to 50 amp service and added a really quiet 15k Coleman a/c heat pump to stay comfortable in 120f temps in the desert SW.

That said I mainly picked the 3010 because of the 11 ' over all height and 16" wheels that I can still change on the side of the road.

My 3010 rocks::!!

Thanks for the information .... the FR3 we looked at had a little different floor plan and seemed more entry level than the 3010.
