Don't know about this model, but we have had two Surveyor TT's and have enjoyed them both.

I also don't know about that model but I had a 2012 Surveyor 264 and loved it. Not a single problem with it. Alas, I got tired of the hooking/unhooking and traded it in on a motorhome. My nephew often tells me he wishes he had bought it from me. Good luck with your decision!

I'll echo what has been said, our 264 has been very good would recommend Surveyor.

Just bought a 265rlds. Had water leak on first trip out. Top right side where the fiberglass front meets the roof. Looked like it had been caulked by a five year old. Brand new trailer. I guess quality control cost too much these days. Thanks to 35 years of boat ownership, I look for leaks constantly.

Bought a 265RLDS this past summer. Only major problem was the TV falling loose. Make sure you have a safety strap installed. Mine did not have one, and the TV fell off the second time I used the RV. Had to replace the TV, mount, and cables. Thankfully, my dealer covered it all.

266RLDS Recent Purchase

We just purchased a 266RLDS Surveyor (very similar to the 265) and love it! We have camped in it one time since we bought it 3 weeks ago, but plan on camping Christmas week. Very easy to set up, and it is much roomier than our previous 24 ft. camper. We just bought an folding/storage ottoman for the comfy chairs on the end - works great and folds for easy storage. The lighting is softer (not as harsh) and couch/chairs are more comfortabe! No issues so far......

We just traded in a Coleman 270rls for a FR Surveyor 32rlts on Halloween. We ended up storing it for the winter where we bought it. We can't wait until spring to pick it up.
