Dutchmen Kodiak 291RESL

DW and I are taking a first look at a new Kodiak 291RESL tomorrow.....thoughts on Dutchmen Kodiak quality, etc.? Other TT options? Purchase decision certainly won't be made tomorrow!

We've done a bunch of onlin review on various manufacturer websites, and there are some "DW absolutes" that need to be followed: sofa required, kitchen island not desired, 1-2 slides, queen bed....so far this model meets the bill.

Any advice or input greatly appreciated!

We had our sights set in a real Zlivinf/entertainment layout. That got changed when we sat on the Denali 289RK. We found that having the kitchen in back leaves the living room and TV viewing sight lines clear, plus I can swing my easy chair around and talk to her at the sametime. It has two slides, a big one for the couch and dinning room plus a wardrobe in the bed room. It is made by Dutchman to boot. We love it.
