We researched and went to RV shows so we knew what we wanted. Under 30', walk around queen bed, leveling system, lots of storage, a slide, and a good manufacturer. When a 2006 29' Rexall American Clipper was posted on RVT, we immediately looked at it and bought it. It's not perfect: kitchen drawers are an issue, but it met most of our requirements plus extras like a satellite dish, electric awning and hydralic slide/leveler. But it did jump out at me when I first saw the listing!
Living the dream!
