Help me choose please

Hello and thanks for the forum. New couple to this and not yet owners of the TT or the TV but will get a big enough TV to not worry about those questions. Just got back from looking at EVO TT after already looking at some Jayco and Keystone first. Of course each has its own positive and negative. Was just looking to hear some feedback and experiences from the ones that know it best. This being a Forest River forum I suppose I will get mostly feedback on that product line.
Will be a retired couple looking to use TT for 1 week trips up to 1 month trips a few times a year at least. So far looked at 2360 2460 and 2600 as far a size goes. probably going to go smaller rather than larger. Thanks again, can not wait to get started.

When looking at trailer the 2360 slide block the fridge when in, the 2460 everything is accessible with slide in and two options for the sofa area, and the 2600 unit is the bigger unit. Myself I like the 2460......

It’s nice to have seating directly across from the TV. My vote is for the 2460.

Since you may be in your TT for a month at a time, you may want to spend about 2 hours in it together to see how comfy the seating arrangements are... IMO the recliners are the better option vs. the combined dinette & sofa seating. Also note that FR has other brands w/similar floor plans but different furniture choices if you don't like the comfort of the ones in these units...

And... if the TT you like is over your budget, you can always shop for gently used ones - that's how we found our Tracer for less than the price of many stick & tin entry-level TTs...

Yep, I'd go 2460 with the recliners, unless you need another bed.

We looked at several designs and settled on the R-pod 182G for a variety of reasons. It's small but very complete with kitchen slide, double bunks plus queen size sleeping area in dinette. Because of our sleeping disorders, I sleep in the lower bunk, use the upper for suitcase storage and the wife sleeps in the queen/dinette, works great! the extra living area from the external canopy has proved a bonus in foul weather as well as been bug proof when fully installed. Also, just a small point, but if you are into entertaining(having guests visit) the dinette area can seat as many as six in a pinch, but certainly four very comfortably.

2600 if you anticipate camping with more than just the 2 of you. The extra seating would come in handy. If it's just the 2 of you, the 2460 looks great, for reasons mentioned above. Wish we had had the foresight when we were looking to think about things like that. We would have gone with an arrangement close to the 2600.

I like the 2460 - having the kitchen close to the door is handier if you plan on eating outside more often than in. Also, the bathroom configuration is nicer with the "library" separate from the sink/shower. Only downside it that counterspace is more limited in the 2460. Based on the clearance, I'm guessing a jack-knife sofa.... I'd opt for the chairs, too. Our jack-knife is woefully uncomfortable. great point about the fridge blocked by the slides. Much easier to load if you don't have to put the slide out just to get into the fridge.

Good luck!
