Wow, your post could have been written by my wife and me. Everything is the same right down to truck type. We looked at Open Road and were impressed, but ended up with a 2014 Silverback 29RE which we purchased in June of this year. We have had quite a few electrical problems, one of the back jacks failed, and several other issues. It has been in the shop locally quite a few times and even back to the factory once (factory people are great!!) The kitchen has a lot less cabinet space than our Jayco had, but we have adapted. The only thing we don't like are the cathedral ceilings on the slides. Obviously, you can't get slide toppers for them and water comes in when you bring them in and you can't have access to the sides inside to wipe them down. I have written a post about that asking for advice from other Silverback owners. We love the look of our Silverback and are enjoying everything about it, except the cathedral ceilings on the slides. Hope this gives you some insight if you haven't already jumped one way or the other.

Just my 2 cents here.
We have the Silverback 33rl and absolutely love it. It gives you a little more room than the 29re and more cupboard space and the DW got her island in the kitchen. I like that the lazy boy chairs are straight across from the tv. As far as the cathedral ceilings, that is what I love the most. It makes it feel more roomy and you are not sitting in a boxy slide. As far as a when it rains when you bring your slides in I just wipe them down with a towel or use a squeegee.
When we were camper shopping its always good to get the layout you like the most then find a good quality unit with the layout you like.
We still go to shows but I still love our Silverback the best.
Good luck on your decision
