2015 Forest River Surveyor 293RLTS

we are considering buying the 2015 Forest River Surveyor 293RLTS. anyone else have this one or an older year of this model? any complaints or advice? we currently own Primetime Avenger 27rlss. w love it in most way but need at least a regular length queen size instead of the short queen that is in our Avenger. we love a lot of the things in the avenger, and the quality, but want a fifth wheel so we can get into some of the places we enjoy camping easier, because of less length behind the truck. we have read a lot of good things about this unit by other owners but want to do the cons as well

I guess these Surveyor fifth wheels aren't very popular. I posted asking if anyone has seen the 292rets & haven't heard a word??

Depends on what part of the country. I know on the West Coast the Surveyor 5ers are not available. We love our Surveyor TT (2014 SC321BHTS)

So in what part of the country ARE they popular? Or who even owns one? Maybe they haven't found their way to this forum yet? I sure would like to hear from an owner about the quality & features on these.

Where did you find other owners of the new Surveyor fifth wheels that you've read good things about?

We do not have a Surveyor 5th wheel, but do have an older Surveyor travel trailer (2008 SV263). It has been a great trailer. The low profile, plus torsion axles allows it to be towed easily. It is lightweight for a 28.5 footer.

I really wanted a Surveyor when we step up to a 5th wheel in about a year, but none of the floorplans work for us.

My wife and I have a 2013 293RLTS that looks the same as the 2015. We love it and only have a few cons. The mattress was too thin so we added a 3 inch gel pad from Costco that helped. The fold out mattress is to thin also and will replace with an air mattress before we have a guest use again. The rear stabilizers are intermittent but I find it is quicker to manual crank them up and down. The lighting in the bath could be better. That is all I can think of right now.
The floor plan was exactly what we were looking for. Could you a few more inches between the bed and bath wall as I am a big guy.

Wife and I enjoying our first trip out in our 2015 293 RLTS. so far so good. Pulls great, first 5th wheel for us and other than a few glitches that were fixed up front it's great. Take a few more trips to really figure it out. By the way, we are in West Virginia.

We own a 2013 of the same model and overall have been satisfied. Have pulled several thousand miles with no major issues. Love the way it pulls and the opposing slides make for a lot of room. Hope you enjoy as much as we have.
