We've had our 8317SS since June and bought it while on vacation while camping in a 310 TBS Montana. Went with one and came back with another (I don't recommend doing that though). We have 2 boys (6 & 4) and 2 high energy Vizslas (Hungarian pointers) and the space is more that enough. We looked seriously at the double slide but I was not thrilled with the swing bunk and sink outside of the bath.

Good luck!

Bought mine in 08 and has been a good unit. Few minor things in the beginning, but nothing real major. Originally had my son and some of his buddies along for Elk season in which we boondock for 3 weeks or so. Now sonny boy and his friends got married and several have their first kids, so I did some mods.
Removed the dinette and put in reclining/rockers. Me and the misses mostly eat on TV trays and much preferred the space to the dinette. I also removed the narrow bunks and added a desk and closet. Works out great for us now. Still have room for another few folks and better use of the space. Can't beat all the storage space available. We went out looking for a new rig this year but just could't justify the prices, not to mention the low balling for trade in.

Best of luck with your decision. I can say I'm pleased with the one I made.

You may want to check RV Direct as well.
Unbelieveable price difference.
We get shafted on vehicles and parts as well
I better stop pointing out how we get taken as I could write forever
So much for free trade!
