drb1984 you would most likely regret if you buy the smaller unit now. I did that last time I bought a camper, really wanted more room but was worried about weight. Bought a full size truck less than a year later, so I could have pulled the bigger unit no problem. The length is 2 feet more and the dry weight is only about 200lb more on the 26rr! The weight of the 26rr and the room really sold me on it.
Check out Pimp my 26rr for a lot of info on modifying it. Most of the mods can be used across the different models. The kitchen table, well the legs stink. I replaced them with legs from a fold up table. I would like to find aluminum fold up legs to save some weight. I did have to beef up the cleats on the benches to support the weight. They where designed with the original table where the legs folded and supported the weight of the table in between the benches.
