Hi Papa. I am also new to this forum. My husband and I have been dreaming of purchasing the 8315BSS for the past several years. We are getting close to making the final leap, and I was wondering how you like yours? We have been camping in a pop-up for several years, and plan to purchase a travel trailer for our retirement. The 8315 has everything I want in a TT - and believe me - I have looked at too many to count.
