2012 Surveyor SV-264, Experiences...

... good or bad... I just bought one and need to know what to look out for. We know it sits a bit lower and we know not to overload it. It has independent torsion suspension and a few other things I'm not totally comfortable with... but it's what Dee Dee said she wanted...

On ours;
The cabinet and over head door hinges only have 1 screw to hold the hinge to the frame - I am in the process of adding screws to every hinge.
The screws that mount the sofa to the base were loose (stripped) and/or laying next to the frame - I drove them into different holes and added 4 more screws.
On the front outside, there was no sealant in a small area between the panel and the trim strip that runs across the bottom.
I plan on removing the house water filter element and using an external filter.
Not much to look out for - Huh?
It seems to be built pretty well.

I chose the 264 because of the kitchen layout and size and the fact that it does have independent suspension.

The kitchen layout is what got us looking, along with the privacy of the bedroom, full-sized queen bed, 2" thick walls, etc... I had just written the down-payment check and had loan approval when another couple came in to try to buy it. I'll check all you listed, and thanks for the reply... We'll pick it up tomorrow...

Where is the water filter? Is it under the sink?

One thing about this trailer is that it appears to have 2 - 30-gallon grey water tanks. One is under the bath/shower and the other under the kitchen. I seemed to fill up the single 30-gallon grey tank quickly on my last outing, but I had a sewer within reach of the hose, so it wasn't a problem. Right now I'm having the wannagogetit joneses... but I won't get it until tomorrow afternoon.

I took off the access panel



The pump is in the front, the filter toward the back


I also had to re-work that outlet - it was crooked, off center and looked like

Brought it home (about 100 miles) yesterday, and had a 30 mph cross/tail wind, probably about half and half component wise. Towed fine even though the gusts moved us around some. Winds today are 35 sustained with 55 mpg gusts. Glad to be NOT towing anything today. I did find the single-screw-per-hinge thing but everything else is OK. Got 12.2 mpg pulling with slight tail wind component and traveling 65 - 70 mph most of the way.

Wifey is pleased...
