And the surveyor is $20,000. Maybe $21k
This is our 1st trailer and we were sold on the Denali until we discovered the Suveyors. we really like both. But a little worried about the bunks on the denali.
Are surveyors really the best? The only person I really herd of them from is the salesmen who told me about them.
The denali seem to have a little nicer interiors. But I guess they just are not built as good structurally as the Surveyor?
And help or opinions would be great!!!
Those seem to be very different trailers!
I looked at a Surveryor SV305, but they had a 304 there and we walked through it. That surveyor is almost 6 feet longer than the Denali and will weigh at least 2K more loaded. The 304 is a LARGE trailer, what are you towing it with?
I think both are finished nice. I liked some of the structural details of the Surveyor, and the torsien axles. I did not like the countertops and some of the door framing inside. The select line is built up a little to compete with other higher end lines.
From the prices I saw - that is a smoking deal on the 304. Not sure on the Denali as again that is much different trailer.
