Recommendation? Looking at three models.
I'm at the point now of having narrowed down my trailer to three different models - all of them Forest River models and all of them bunkhouse models.
The first is a Surveyor Select SV305. What we really like about this is the sunken bunk room with the kids entertainment area.
What I wasn't sure about was the large lounge with moveable table.. The windows were nice, and the storage was great above them in the slide area... but we did like that the pullout air sofa was queen sized. Just not sure about how the eating area would work out..? Also, I'm not sure if I buy into the exterior kitchen thing in the rear storage area.. I'd rather keep bikes in there, or just save the extra pounds it contributes to the overall trailer weight.
The next two models are virtually identical...
A Wildwood Heritage Glen 312QBUD and a Salem Hemisphere 312 QBUD.
We like the U shaped dinette, the exterior door from the bathroom, and that the kitchenette and dinette had e-granite available (we've seen too many laminate issues to discount the easy maintenance of a solid counter)
We also like the separate couch and dinette from the above two models...
Another plus was the option of the two-toned cabinets. My wife really likes the look of the style.
One item that came up was that our local Salem dealer told us they are no longer carrying the Hemisphere models due to a high number of customer complaints with quality... not good, as the Wildwood is the exact same trailer, and the Surveyor is almost the same!
Can anyone offer their insights into these models?
Thanks in advance!
