Welcome to the FR Forums. I bought mine because of the size and the floorplan. I like to camp in the National and State Parks and NF campgrounds, so to me, smaller is better. So far, I have been very happy with mine, with just a few minor bugs the first year, as can be expected with any new rig. Hope you enjoy your new coach, and don't hesitate to ask any questions here; there are a few of us with the 280DS on the Forums.
