Best 31' and Under

Currently have an 03 Gulfstream Prairie Schooner 29FBW, looking to upgrade to a new rig. The following criteria: 31'ft and under, two slides minimum, 60 gal fresh or larger. Well built and four season capable. I am finding very few choices. Excel 28RKW seems to be the top of the line. Am I missing something? Lots of choices when you get into 32' and larger but that eliminates many places we like to go. What am I missing? Are there any other options? Should I consider a remodel of our existing rig?

NuWa makes a couple of high quality HitchHiker LS models under 31 ft. Only problem is NuWa is considering stopping new model production by early next year. They will, however, maintain warranty parts and service.

I should have stated I ruled out NuWa. It seems they are in discussions with Excel to manufacture their coach. Until they get things sorted out , I cant justify purchasing from them.

Just a rumor so don't bank on it.

Checked out the Open Range. Was really interested until I found out you can't put a class 3 hitch on the rear of it. Have sent a communication to the manufacturer in hopes they will rethink their design? No word yet.
