Are Surveyors rare?

I was at Myrtle Beach last week staying at a beach house with family. We toured MB Travel Park, Ocean Lakes, Lakewood and Pirateland - basically to scout out where the better sites are, and see if we could get some ideas on camp site set ups, etc.

We are new at camping - have a new SV210. Of course as we rode around I was looking for Surveyors. Keep in mind that all of these were nearly full campgrounds - I think maybe I saw a total of 6 or 7 Surveyors. About 1/2 appeared to be 2009 models (or at least had the same decals as my '09) There were litterally dozens of Wildwoods, Rockwoods, Prowlers, etc.

Just wondering if this brand is really that rare?

We will be at MB Travel Park Labor Day weekend - shouldn't be hard to pick us out, will probably have the only SV210 there and one of a few Surveyors. Anyone else going to be there?

We've also noticed that Surveyors are rare. In all our travels we've maybe seen a dozen at different campgrounds.

I've seen more Surveyors this year than I've seen since we bought ours in '07.

May be rare but an awesome RV. We do see the occasional Surveyor; but a lot more Jayco's, Outbacks, etc. The people I've met with Surveyors invariably like them though . . .

I kind of enjoy having the only Surveyor in the camp ground. We've had people ask us about it and it gives us a chance to meet new people.

I too recently purchased a sport 186 and have not noticed many surveyors out there. In fact I could not find a local dealer who handled them.

Yes, we too have noticed that the Surveyor can be a "conversation piece". I think people must be attracted to them or they wouldn't be asking about them. We get lots of nice comments from people about the Surveyor.

They are not rare here. I have one in my backyard. We camped next to an identical SV 291, just exactly like ours a few weeks ago.

On our last trip we saw one just like ours (SV233T) and several other Surveyors at the campground.

I have to be honest, if we were buying on the way the pre-08 surveyors looked from the outside only, we would have kept looking. The gray/maroon decals are BORING. But, we loved the floorplan,features and build quality. The $12k off MSRP didn't hurt either!
I think the exterior color change has made a big difference in he Surveyor image.
