We bought the 8289 last July. We had been looking at different fifth wheels for several years, we always seemed to migrate back to this floor plan. We moved from a 34 foot class A to this one, although we only had an opportunity to use it six weekends we really enjoyed it. The bedroom is a little tight compared to the motorhome but the kitchen and living area are pretty roomy for a smaller fifth wheel. The 8280WS was our second choice. It is a little lighter and the wife really liked the kitchen with the nice pantry and the big U shaped dinette.
If we had to redo it I think we would choose the same again. We'll see if we still feel this way 10 years from now.
