My wife (Norma), small dog and I have just finished our second trip with a SP 220. Previously owned a 2007 Surveyor 160T which was a fun unit, however eventually got tired of having to crawl over a body when hitting the sack. I was originally looking at a comparable size Rockwood or Flagstaff, but Norma fell in love with the Surveyor entertainment centre. I must admit that It offers a nice privacy screen between the bed and kitchen areas even though it adds weight to the trailer. Overall it is a nice looking trailer and the workmanship is good as far as trailer construction is concerned. The only design flaw is that the bathroom cannot be accessed with the slide fully closed (minor for us).
Picked up the trailer on the 6th of June and spent a few days camping near the dealership (600 miles from home). Any major problems can be repaired immediately by the Dealer: A/C fan in this case.
Camped on the way home to find out what minor things needed to be repaired and where to put everything. After mounting the towel racks etc, the only adjustments I made were: installing a half shelf in the overhead cabinet, cutting two slots in the knife holder so the stove cover hinges lie flat, lengthening one of the straps to secure the table, reposition the strut bases so the foot of the bed stays in the upright position and tightened a nut to stop a water leak. The unit came with a full sink cover, but we added a cutting board to cover the small sink leaving the large sink open ( Original Gripper 11 by 14 fits nicely within the sink groves )
We love the idea of the sofa instead of the typical dinette area (with this you can stretch out). No problem seating 4 adults and two teenagers after bring in one stool. It seems quite a few do not like the table, but ours is not giving us any problems. The cushions are soft and the foam might be replaced sometime in the future.
Based on some of the questions in the other threads, just for information purposes:
1. In the 2013 model the water plump is located outside the bathroom wall left of the sofa. Remove the left sofa skirt for ease of access (slide out).
2. The slide motor is located under the middle of the sofa. Remove the middle sofa skirt: 3 screws.
At this point in time no regrets purchasing this trailer. Further trips are being planned.
