So far we have been extremely please with our 281qbxl
I have a 12 and 14 year old and with all 4 of us camping it did not feel like we were cramped. I LOVE the outdoor kitchen - that was the selling point for me. Only a couple of issues to report as of now. When the slide is out it will pinch the hose to the inside stove and cut off gas flow. Until I can get it into the dealer I just bump the slide in hair and it works fine.
We ordered ours with the back pack rack to put our bikes and etc on. With that option you lose the swing arm grill mount and the camper comes with a table top grill. Unfortunately the supplied hose is too short to put the grill up on a table at a safe distance from the side so I will be making a trip to my local Suburban propane and get a new hose made up.
I had to adjust the screen door so it would not get stuck on the latch for the main door. I just removed the hinge in the middle and then drilled new holes as it went right into place once it was off.
Interior lighting and outlets throughout keep the kids happy... and I managed to mount a 29" television in the entertainment center.
My Durango pulls it just fine. It has the 4.7l engine and I believe is rated at 8600 lbs towing capacity. The equal-i-zer hitch smooths it all out. We just purchased a used 2500 Silverado so we can take the camper and boat with us (once DW is comfortable towing 19' boat
Overall I would recommend it as we have been pleased so far. The little things don't bother me as I know my way around cars and houses and can fix a majority of items myself.
