We just bought the 2716. A slightly different model. I found the couch on the 2518 un comfortable and liked the U diner fit us better but to each their own. There is a reason for so many different models.

I have a 2016 2516G. Basically the same floorplan with shower/toilet cassette.
Personally I would have liked a highwall model with black+gray tanks, higher counters, more cabinet spaces, hardwall bathroom and high ceiling. It is not a lot heavier, but I'm already approaching the limits with 2516G for my car.

Pros:
Being a 'premier' series, everything's a step up from the bare minimums of a freedom series trailers (still, don't expect to much).
Very large!! you can very comfortably sleep 7 people. (2 on the queen, 3 on the king and 1-2 on the conversion dinette)
It is probably the largest trailer you can park in a 19' garage. I got it into my garage with less than 1" clearance.
Slideout dinette is amazing. Really opens up the floor plan.


Cons:
Sofa's okay for the rare chance to squeeze a friend into the trailer. It is pretty uncomfortable, and definitely won't sleep 2 people on the sofa. I would probably prefer a counter/cabinet instead.
There's pretty much no counter space.
A bit heavy (both tongue weight and GVWR) for a tent trailer.
