We were down to the Touring Edition 40D12, the XLR 420 and a couple of Fuzions. Very happy with our choice so far.

If you favor more room inside, go with what you're thinking. But if you like chilling outside, the 40D12 has been far better than we ever imagined. Side patios are so much better than we thought.

The 40D12 is pretty awesome with the side patio! We thought about it but didn't think it would benefit us. Places we go to just doesn't have room. Spot are already tight enough to with a 42 footer lol! We also thought about the 38D12 but didn't like the fact it doesn't have a aft bath.
How do you like the construction quality of the touring? Does the 6 point hydraulic jacks feel pretty stable? We have JT strong arms on our rig but still moves quite a bit when the kids are playing in the back.

So far, its been flawless. We've been on four trips and the only thing that has failed is one of the DVD players this past weekend. For some reason, the small Samsung Blu-Ray player just quit working. That's certainly not a Vengeance fault and we've already turned it in for a warranty claim.

The 6 point system is great. Easy and very stable. We don't do much in the back so I can't give you an honest opinion for your situation. The rear legs are close to the rear axle so you have a lot of camper hanging off back there. But for us, we've been very happy. Headed back to Ocean Lakes in August and then Disneyworld the middle of December. If I had to do it again, I certainly would.

What caulk would you use on the outside of camper? I finally remembered to pull a screw out of that black trim so that I could buy some more. The trim is coming loose so I am going to put more screws in it and I also need to reapply the caulk.

Wasn't us. Ours is sitting under the shelter at home. We don't take her out again until mid-August.

It's the first one I have seen on the road since we bought ours. It looked really cool

I see them but very rarely. That's another reason I like them. Folks look at them and ask, "What kind of camper is that?" I guess the name on the cap trips them up?

Around here, its Raptors, Fuzions, Cyclones, and the occasional XLR primarily when it comes to toy haulers.

Bed storage lift
Just a heads up because this will probably happen to all of ours. The beam that the piston is connected to is not very secure. From what I could tell it only has one screw in each end and it twists after a while. This needs to be reinforced or the beam will twist damaging the sheet of "plywood" and possibly the pistons. I would suggest some small "L" brackets which is what I will be using on mine.

Anyone know how to disconnect that piston? I could remove it from the wood I guess? Not real sure what's easier.

Use a small screw driver under the clip and pry off the retaining clip far enough so the ball pops out of the socket.
To install just push it on.
Same goes for most automotive ones too, as seen in this picture.
