Well…I've already posted a few times on some other threads, so I thought I'd go ahead and post in the Welcome Mat. I guess that's a little backwards…but oh well!

We bought a 2007 Surveyor SV-235RS back in January of this year (2012) from some friends of ours. It had been used twice prior to our purchase and was kept in covered storage. It's like getting a brand new trailer - without the brand new price!

We've camped about 10 nights since we bought it, and really have grown to love it! My wife and I have 6 kids - and so a trailer that sleeps 9-10 was important to us. A trailer that wasn't going to be a beast to pull was also high on that list. Our Ford E-350 van is already a gas guzzler, so fuel economy/weight/height were important.

The SV-235RS offered the sleeping room and amenities that mattered to us. After all, with all those kids, we aren't looking to spend too much time hanging out IN the trailer. We need a place to economically sleep and feed our bunch when we're on the road for our kid's gymnastics meets. The driver's side loading door is a big plus when it comes to loading and transporting all the kid's bikes!

Anyway…don't mean to bore y'all with the details. Just wanted to say, "Hello."
