We got our 291 a couple of months ago and love it. Great family lay out, storage is good and tows nice behind a 1/2 ton. We have enjoyed it a couple of weekends and some driveway camping. Its full of anti-freeze now. Frost is moving in, and that sucks.

Yes Bama the new ones have 2 gate valves and one discharge.

surveyor model line

thanks again everyone we are still looking and deciding. but the surveyor is at the top of our list. thanks again. one thing we noticed is that the bathroom door opens into the bunks in the SV291. The bunk drape, when closed hampers your entrance onto the bathroom. The rope the us to secure the drape to the slide rail look very weak and could break.

Thanks again

Just my opinion... but if you are worried about the apparent cheapness of a few of the things like this... then be ready to be dissappointed unless you spend A LOT more money.

Surveyor is a really good TT. But all TTs in this price range are going to have things like the tie backs, or stuck on trim in places that are going to need the owner to "mod". That is part of it.

YMMV... good luck!
