Anyone have any experience with these travel trailers? Looking for feedback - please.

We want to retire before we expire.

We have a 2008 anniversary edition 259DSL....rear kitchen, two slide, leather, 35 footer has lots of room....we love it but are moving to a MH soon. It tows great. The only 2 problems we had was decals pealing ( yes i waxed,cleaned and its covered in the winter) and the awning. Everything on ours is power push button and when we put the awning out the angle wasn't enough to drain water off.

Solution....I removed the rear arm support and drilled an additional hole in the arm about 3" from the original hole. Once we put the awning out I would the. Remove the pin from the original hole and place it into the hole I drilled. This was enough angle change to let all the rain roll off to the rear. We we packed up to leave I put the pin back into its original hole and rolled it up.

All and all I like the trailer, the wife loves it but we wanna do more distance and be more comfortable while getting there. One more thing, outside storage is on the small side.

Good luck!

We had a 2007 260FB and for 2 years loved it! Only sold it to get a motorhome, and would have seriously looked at Denali motorhomes if they made them.

The quality was very good and the system equipment and parts were all from common and popular vendors, so any service needs would have been easy - but none was ever needed.

Don't confuse Dutchmen with Coachman...I think there was a big difference!
Best of luck!
