welcome to the forum,
your switch isn't big at all. We just went from a tent to a Rockwood 8293RKSS wich measures out at just over 32'.
As for pricing I sugest you check into

They are just up the road a bit in Menomonee falls WI. what we did was sent t a blanket e-mail to all the dealers near us stating exactly what we wanted and asked or their best price and why I should buy it from them. I sent one e-mail to all the dealers so they all could see who it was sent to and also mentioned that I was looking at RV direct and RV wholesale. Of the 4 dealerships and 2 online sellers Roskops was lowest by nearly 2K. Couple this savings along with a dealer who cares about a customer.
We were at the Milwaukee RV show doing our paperwork and about 30 people stopped to say Hi to Gary as we were working on the deal. This showed me that he has a good reputation truly does care about his customers.
here is his response to my price request:
Hey John,
Thanks for your interest in Rockwood travel trailers and especially in the 8293RKSS floorplan. At this time I do not have this model in stock, but we can order it out. Sale price will be $XX,XXX.00.
Why buy from us, 4 RVDA certified techs, 8 bay service dept., fully stocked parts store(which as a customer you will receive a discount on parts), upon pick-up of your new trailer there will be no extra costs for items like a battery, filling the LP tanks, sewer hose or electrical adapter. Also you are dealing directly with the manager(no sales people, no false promises)Gary Roskopf(Roskopf's RV)
So, if you can swing the drive check them out and tell Gary the Hechels reccomended them to you.
