We bought a 2015 model this past summer. My Tahoe pulls it pretty good and I don't have any major issues with that. It is a good camper compared to what we had before. It is a little small when you get more than two people in it. The bathroom is a little to small for me and the tank do not hold a lot. If you camp in an area where it isn't shaded and hot the ac seemed to not keep up real well using the centralized air. The one thing I don't like about is that it sits a little to low to the ground and here in Iowa where I go camping there isn't a lot of level campsites. Also make sure the connections on the radio are good because mine were crimped poorly and the speakers would quit working they also forgot to take the screws out of the radio so I could watch DVDs. I also got the outdoor kitchen and we love it. I like having my own little beer fridge outside. The grill is a lil cheap you kinda have to watch out for grease fires.

As for having water in the tanks my dealer advised us not to do it cuz it's just added weight when your pulling it but I have left water in when going down the road. I have found if I leave it full when I leave home a lot of water goes out the overflow. So I just leAve it about half full so we can use the bathroom if we need to before we get to the campground.

I agree that this model and the 262bhxl are to low to the ground for how long they are. I will be looking at getting the springs mounted to the top of the axles. I would also agree the electric stabilizer jacks dont support the trailer very well. I too will be looking at adding additional jacks to mine.

So far with mine all dealer work done is the wiring harness on the slide out needed replaced, wireless remote control for the slide,awning etc had to be replaced, sewer/grey dump plumbing had to be replaced due to hanging so low and hitting something. all my drawers required a latch deal to keep them closed.

If i do travel with water in the tank i try to have it as full as possible. This helps keep it from really sloshing around so much.

My wife and I got the 261bhxl in June 2015. We loved it we are a family of 2 adults and 3 kids(7,6,2) plus we took my 13 year old niece. We were great for the week we spent at the beach and the weekend get aways close to home. As we go we make small adjustments to whatever we need. So far we have added some extra storage self to the bathroom. Added show storage racks and a post on a hinge to hold the bed up. Ad far as set up I would agree the electric stabilizers leave something to be desired. I bought the camco stabilizers mentioned earlier haven't gotten to use them just yet. No matter what you buy you will find things that need adjusted to meet your families needs. This cost effective model allowed my family to take 4 vacations rather than just one last summer. This year we have so many weekends planned.
