Thanks,
Howdy! I've got the perfect model for you - the same one we have!! Has a huge rear bath, outside kitchen, no bunks. 8293RKSS. Dry weight is listed at 6501 in this years' catalog (last year it was 5887?) We just love our TT. Ordered it with power everything, free-standing dinette, outside gas grill, countertop extension, convenience package. It is the perfect size for the two of us. You could order the couch with the optional air bed if you want, but we opted not to.

Welcome. While it is true First River has a lot models to choose from, they make a nice attractive product. They make so many that they have something for everybody.

Thanks,
Might be better shopping for a camper using the max gross weight; rather than "dry weight." The dry weight means absolutely nothing since it is a number that exists only on the brochure. The "shipped weight" is typically several hundred pounds more (options are not included in dry weight) and you will never camp with the camper empty. Camping stuff expands to fill the available gross weight and sooner or later you will hit "max" in any case; might as well plan for it.
