I know everyone has their own wants and needs, but for us we boondock and tow in the mountains 75% of the time. So length, power, OCCC along with the shower size are the drivers.
Preferably L9 or DD8 power
3000+/- OCCC figuring 500lbs water, 650lbs tongue weight, 700lbs occupants, 250lbs clothes and food, 200lbs ice chests, 700lbs of gear??
shower with the least dimension of 30" min
The 30FW is under on OCCC, looked at one yesterday and it was 1620
The Europa is very nice, OCCC of 12,000
, but the dry weight is about 3500lbs more than the 30FW (same floor plan)so the 6.7 gets a 3500lb handicap performance wise by being in the M2, gotta pay to play.
I think I am leaning to the 28SS
31'-2" is hard to beat
6.7 at an estimated 27,000 GCW with trailer is not perfect but will do.
2600 OCCC, like the 6.7 not perfect but I can work with it
Shower is a problem.
After looking at a bunch of in construction pics from dynamax facebook page
I am pretty sure I can remodel the bathroom to accommodate a larger shower. It wont be perfect but it will do!
The HUGE bonus us that rear pass thru compartment
, I have some ideas of a pull out with full size cooktop, BBQ, and 12v cooler.
Moving the smaller floorplan to the DX3 doesn't work, unless I bring a really long extension cord, because of the all electric and no LP. Solar and batteries only go so far especially under the canopy of evergreens and sequoias. I do not want to have to cycle the generator every day. And the price jump from the I5 is BIG!
Here is what we have ran since 05, it has a big enough wet bath but climbing up into the bed is getting old, like me! I turned up the 5.9 a bunch but that comes with a cost of a new set of clutch packs in the forward clutch every 5-7 years. In other words I just put in my 3rd trans in 95,000 miles. Stock made it about 18,000, first Goerend made it 60,000, 2nd Georend has some new goodies not available previously so I am hopeful to make another 60-70, then when I sell, it should be good for the new owner, probably my son!
