Our priorities were mostly floorplan based. We wanted the entertainment center in the rear and a big window to look out when the TV was hidden. We wanted to be able get to the fridge and bathroom without running any slides out. We did not want to walk through the bathroom to get to the bedroom, the bathroom facilities had to be all in the same room. We also wanted room to walk around in the bedroom. We found the Cedar Creek 36RE and it fit the bill perfectly. We did our research looking at Forest River as a company and the Cedar Creek line of fifth wheels. By the time we purchased our RV, we were sure that we were getting what we wanted.

We could only go out one weekend in 2012 since we did not get the 36RE until September, but the unit lived up to our hopes and expectations. Can't wait to get it out of storage in March and head south for spring break.

For us it wasn't as much as needing a bunch of bunks as it is just us and we are in this full time so it was more about space and not feeling confined to. The v-nose with the bedroom up front and rear entertainment was our choice. Feels homey and with the 3 slides it spacious. We love our little home on wheels.

After spending years in a 32' TT, we had a shopping list of must haves when we we're ready to move up to a new camper.

We jumped to a 5'ver that met our wish list needs:
1. Better towing/handling (we go everywhere & anywhere via highways, tired of fighting TT)
2. Spacious bedroom with plenty of storage & room for a washer/dryer in the future
3. Huge shower/bathroom space with linen closet ( one of the best in it's class)
4. Recliners ( so tired of jiffy sofa & u-shape dinette for seating)
5. Lots of windows for all around views and light inside camper (we camp year round as weekend warriors-good or bad weather, like to be able to enjoy the views)
6. Open floor plan (space was getting cramped with young kids in a double slide-driver's side only TT)
7. Construction & Price

We're very pleased with our Sabre 32RCTS-6

Went from a Pop up to tt because we needed more room and space for our 2 year old twins. Double sized bed for them to sleep, tub for their bath. Floor plan. Went with a larger tt for them to grow in to instead of having to get one a few years later.

We looked at other toy haulers in the 26 foot range and they were all pretty much the same for the floor plan. I had looked at the sandstorm line along time ago way before we had ever thought about getting one. And I loved the 203slc just because of weight and length because I have a half ton. So when we went to the last dealer and they had sandstorms and had a 203 slc with a generator I was sold. Love my toy hauler it's been everything we wanted and more. Can't wait to go next year.

We had a bunkhouse Edgewater as we thought our grandkids would camp more so when we were at an RV show 3 years ago we decided we wanted a unit just for us. 1: needed rear liging room 2: had to have a bedroom with the bed on a slide. 3: The TV had to be easily viewable by as many seating positions as possible (that eliminiated about 75% of the RV's out there), ability to sleep 4 was more than enough. It needed lots of floor space and a stand alone dinette. The 30WRLS fit perfect in every category and is one of the few that the only positions that cannot see the TV are the 2 dinette chairs that face the back of the trailer. We have done a few upgrades like Euro recliners instead of the swivel rockers it came with and took out the bar stools but 3 years later and we still have yet to find one we like better. And it tows like it's on rails even in cross winds with the hitch setup we have.

For us: Floor plan, floor plan, floor plan. I needed a toy hauler that could fit my wife's Can Am Spyder and my full dresser. The Wolf Pack 27WP was the only one that could carry them both.
