You are going to LOVE IT. We have a 2013 3450 which I feel it is a great unit from a wonderful company. Structure is the best of all the Cardinal. (In my opinion)if you have any questions please call 817 690 8797.

Our 2011 has been great, added insulation in the front cap and upgraded the converter as well as 17.5 inch wheels and tires. Hopefully FR is at least installing G rated tires now.

Sorta late now to ask for the cons after your purchase.

The one thing I'd be mindful of (I've had two Cardinals and still have one of them) is the tires. I'm pretty sure after their sorrowful odyssey with Chines tires they have reliable ones on their products now. I had three blowouts in one 350 mile trip on my unit.
