I think it's the unit we've finally settled on...
Our criteria was:
- No corner bed
- Wanted slides
- Wanted sofa & dinette
So that ruled out quite a few models.
We were left with:
- 2860: Love the bedroom storage. Limited kitchen counter space. The new standard outside kitchen just doesn't fit our camping style & it limits basement storage. If could order without the standard outsde kitchen, might consider.
- 3010: Thought the wife would love the kitchen counter space. She quickly ruled the model out though based on the u dinette - the table itself was too small. Also, my head was so close to cabinets above that I knew I would bump it while sliding in & out.
- 3120: Seems like a neat floorplan but dealers near us don't stock & would want to see first.
- 3170: Bunks seem great. Wife quickly ruled the model out though based on how the bunks were finished - they aren't as enclosed as much as Winnebago or Jayco. I am leery of the lighter cargo carrying capacity also.
So that leaves us with the 3100. Kind of an old fashioned design but seems like it would work for us. Only slight issue is not a ton of bedroom storage for clothes (We are a family of 4 & will mostly do weekend trips but perhaps a week long trip to Disney next spring break. Figure could make the occasional longer trips work.) Decent kitchen counter space. Great basement storage.
So, all that said, are there any negatives to the Sunseeker 3100 (or Forester 3101)? I figure people who have owned one either now or in the past can really speak to the good & the bad.
