Going Bigger....Yikes!

Hi everyone! We just sold our 17ft. Trail Lite Bantam because we wanted a "grown-up" bedroom tt. Bought a 2005 Rockwood 2304S....has queen bed with a storage area below and a slide out sofa.
Does anyone else have this year and model? If so, any comments on good or bad things about it? We need to figure out a dinette table yet as it came with a MONSTER type coffee table/dinette table combo. Too big and heavy. Attaching a pic to get a better idea.
Thanks for any "heads-up" info!
Appreciate it!
Dorene and John

going from 17' to a 24' is baby steps, when you buy a 34' tt then you can say you went bigger

Going from 17' to 34' can be a giant step for some of us.

If you could post some pictures of the dinning area it might help get the ideas flowing.
