Surveyor SCT321BHTS

We've probably looked at 50 TTs this year and, I think, we found one that DW and I are both in love with, a 2014 Surveyor SCT321BHTS.

We like the looks, the interior colors (VERY important to DW) are good, it meets all of our needs AND wants. Anyone have experience with the Surveyor line? I know they have a number of hybrids/expendables and I have seen that people are very happy with those.

Any concerns on the Surveyor line?

I'm looking about $29k for it, seems to be a tad lower than the rest of them out there so it feels like a good deal.

We've had two Surveyor Sport models and loved both of them. One we had for three years, and the latest is almost a year old. Never a real problem with either of them, other than a few minor, easily fixed glitches that most new trailers seem to have.

We make it a point to camp at least once a month, and both trailers have held up very well. We have been very pleased.

We have a 2013 Surveyor SP296. Last year was our first season with it. Camped 32 nights and didn't have any major issues.

We have a Surveyor sv305, since March '13. No mayor problems, hum, may be one, leak. Now it's only the 'darned' rv curtains, (two stock in the down position) it's probably an easy fix, just too busy to work on it. One of the rubber seals from the slides got loose from the screws that keep them attached to the wall, Also a warranty fixed job.
Did have a small leak in the roof/front cap joint that developed few months after we got it but it was fixed by Lazydays / FR and my pocket (50% of the cost) it was a used camper. (2013)
So far it's been ok and we camp one weekend a month throughout the year and two full weeks on vacations/spring break time. family of 5.

Thanks everyone for your replies! Im starting to feel pretty good about this one! Hoping the price really is the best I can get. I did find one at Couch's in Ohio for like $27.5k but it would cost me $3k to have it shipped. This is the best price within 2,000 miles of me so I'm pretty comfortable.

We did it ! We went and looked at it tonight, gave them a deposit and will, hopefully, be picking it up Saturday. Looking forward to our spring break trip in a couple weeks

Excited and a little nervous. We pick the trailer up in 5 hours! Been a while since I towed something this large so I'll be taking it very easy on the drive home. Aside from taking it slow and wide, any pointers from the experienced crowd here? I got them to throw in the Equalizer hitch so that will definitely help with my confidence lol

We picked the trailer up. One issue with the door handle and that was it, went very smooth and towed great on the way home. Trailer is awesome and we're looking forward to our first trip in 2 weeks.

Time to get shopping for all the gear for it!!!
