We took delivery on March 28th. We have really enjoyed ours with no problems to speak of. We love the layout, especially for the grand kids.
Our trip to Disney was great. It has been out on 4 long weekends, seen some heavy weather and came through just fine. Taking it out to sons house for the weekend and will boondock.. This will finally test out the generator and pump system.
Hope these comments help in your decision. Good luck.

Your comment that you will soon boondock prompted me to write this. We have a 2011 Sunseeker 3100 with the Onan generator.

For your information, Onan recommends breaking it in by running it at half load for two hours then 3/4 load for two more hours. If you haven't already, read the Onan owner's manual. It has lots of good information. You can download it from their web site. That's handy if you leave the manuals in the coach when it is in storage like I do.

Here's a tip for Sunseeker owners (may also work for other brands and/or Class A's) that you won't find any of the literature that came with your coach: The coach batteries supply the power to start the generator. If you are dry camping and run the coach batteries down, you can't start the generator to recharge them and to run the furnace, etc. However, if you start the chassis engine, the battery control center will connect the chassis battery to the coach's 12 volt system and you can then start the generator. Don't do like I did and forget to switch the chassis engine off! You can't hear it running with the generator running.

We LOVE our 2011 3170DS. We are a family of 5 and this is the foor plan we'd been looking for in a motorhome for years. We had TT's before and I drove a big loud 3/4 ton Dodge diesel 90% of the time empty as my daily driver. We always wanted a motorhome but were stuck in the travel trailer bunkhouse floor plans for all the sleeping options for our kids and friends that come along.

Mine did not come with rear air bags or levelers...Cant say I miss them as all my previous TT never had them either. Regarding the air bags... This unit rides better than my Dodge...So Im Happy, Happy, Happy!

Easy fix for the speaker "conflict". Turn the TV speakers off in the menu. Set the volume on the surround sound system to midway and use the tv volume control to adjust the volume. This also eliminates the audio buzz and subwoofer problems you may have heard about.
I could not imagine not having the bigfoot jacks. I have rarely seen a level site and you need something to stabilize the rig.
