Thanks-
We put one in the bathroom in the space between the toilet and the door. If we need one for the kitchen area while cooking, we just use a plactic bag and take it out when finished. I have a collapsable/expandable container that we keep outside the camper for most trash.


On a different note, the fresh water tank drain on this unit is in the worst place possible. Under the camper, right between the tires. I can't reach in between the tires to get to it. I have to lay down in front of the front tire and crawl back to get to it. Has anyone added an extension tube with a ball valve for easier draining? Maybe this is a good question for the "modification" thread.

We finally brought our 2013 sv-291 home yesterday. We are so excited and ready to go camping.

I love the new decals/paint they are using on the new surveyors ! I saw a ton of new units in front of the factory in May and went, darn, I bought mine too early

Congratulations to you on your new unit !

Congrats
I'm close to deciding on a 291. How do you feel towing the 31'?
