Wasn't to impressed with the cruiser rv at the last RV show we attended. Also I have a negative vib against any Keystone product.
Were on our 2nd Aerolite hybrid product. The one we have now, for a 26' unit (2013 Aerolite 232ES
) your not going to find anything under 30' that has sleeping captivity for 3-4 adults and also a full size couch other than a hybrid. We started kicking tires for the "Next
" RV, which we want the true 4 season non-hybrid unit. Finding what we want is going to be 32'.
I too want to stay in the 28'-26' range. We want at least a 64" couch, good storage, counter space, larger shower, at least a 50 gallon fresh water, slide (or 2) and sleeping for 3 adults. My wife is sticking to not having my son sleep on the couch. Having a bed (bunk beds) pushes any RV over 30'.
We have over 200 nights in the 2013 hybrid we have now, getting set to leave for Alaska this summer in a few weeks. In MT. were stopping at a Arctic Fox dealer to check out their quality built RV trailers.
Have you checked out the Winnebago's ? Minnie's? We like there construction, but just didn't find a floorplan to our needs.
