I don't have the specific model you mentioned (I have a SP-220) but I am very happy with my Surveyor. I have had minimal issues (most of which I just fixed myself) and have been really happy with the fit and finish. I have had mine for one full season and am looking forward to season two. We had about 18 or so 2+ trips. Biggest problem was running over a rivet (learned how to change a trailer tire though!)
I hope you get the information you are looking for and hopefully the weight police will leave you alone now....
I agree about the Surveyors. I also have the 220 and prior to that had a Surveyor 186. Both were trouble free other than a few minor issues at the beginning that were quickly remedied.
Overall we have been very pleased with the Surveyor quality. They are light-weight, which means they are not constructed with heavy-duty materials, but that's the price you pay for light weight.
I have never seen a post on here where people are having to take a Surveyor back to the factory to have major problems resolved. I'm sure it happens. Every factory seems to spit out a bad one once in a while, but I haven't read too many complaints about the Surveyors.
I hope you have a good experience with whatever you choose.
