We have a 2012 and love it. It's a great fit for our family - we have 2 young adult kids that are with us most of the time.
Some of the things that sold us on this model...
--The u-shaped dinette is the best we saw in trailers of similar size. Plenty of room to seat 4 comfortably, and when you convert it to a bed it is roughly the size of a queen.
--The cushions on the couch (both seat and back) lie flat when you fold it down into a bed. Most couches have a thicker rounded back cushion, so when its converted into a bed there is a bump in the middle.
--The rear door is great for safety (easy egress for rear bunks), and is very handy for storage.
--The rear bunks are full length so they have plenty of leg room for normal size people. The bottom bunk is full size.
--When the slide is out, you have a nice open floor plan with plenty of space to walk around.
--The quality of the interior doors and drawers is very noticeable compared to other manufacturers.
--There is plenty of storage between the cabinets, under bed storage, and other nooks and crannies.
--It is light weight, which was the feature I was most concerned with.
We really don't have any major complaints so far.
Let me know if you have any questions I can answer for you about it.
