Our current Jayco 212QB is really nice. Lightweight, under 25 ft, decent bathroom and what really sold us on it was the windows in the rear around the dinette and couch. Itís perfect for weekends and short trips for my wife12 year old daughter and I. The only real shortcoming is my danger has to sleep on the jack knife couch or dinette and she says itís not very comfortable.
Now that I have a capable tow vehicle, Iím thinking in a year or two when we finally retire of getting something a bit bigger. Before our motor home we used to have a Shasta with a bunkhouse and bathroom in the rear, queen bed up front and a single slide. The kitchen dinette and couch were in the middle. I donít recall the specs, but it was probably around 33 feet and in the 6500 pound range.
Iíd like something under 30 feet because of campground availability, storage lot and being able to put it in my driveway when getting ready for a trip. But it seems everyone makes a model similar to what I had, and they are all in that 33 foot range. I saw a Mallard that I really liked, Iíd heard good things about the brand. Unfortunately, the website seems to indicate it only comes with a single 13.5 K AC, which I think would be inadequate for here in Fl. I put a photo of the floor plan below and was wondering what other brands are available and what peopleís experiences are. I like my Jayco, but lots of people seem to have problems with them, especially after a few years. Iíve not really had any issues so far.
