Smile Surveyor vs Grand Surveyor - what's the difference?

Surveyor vs Grand Surveyor - what's the difference? Why the two brands?
It is it like Chev and Buick from GMC?

I'm looking at the Surveyor 260, 263 or 265 and the GS 260.

thanks - ken kalynuk

I believe that the Grand is basically a step up from the Sport. The Grand has a water filter system, where sport does not. Grand comes with stove cover, and sink covers, wall clock, heated underbelly.

Not sure if there are other things, but those are in the brochure that I have.

I just picked up the sv-295 with the outdoor kitchen and cant wait to use it.

Only another 4 months ( If this snow stops falling anytime).

As Kev said, the Grand had a few amenities that the Surveyor didn't have. Sealed and heated underbelly was a major one.

They quit making the Grand Surveyor series a few years ago and incorporated most of it's features into the Surveyor line. Depending on what years you're looking at you may be getting the same features in a surveyor that you would get in a GS of an older year.
