I'd like to trade up from a 2002 Great West Classic Supreme (a B with a slideout!) that I've had for three years. My new B can be brand-new or a couple of years old, but I REALLY want a 20-footer or shorter.
Almost everything I've seen has a strike against it:
--The Ontour 2.0 is pricey, has no swivel chairs, and offers door screens and solar only as (pricey) options.
--The Solis has a cassette toilet.
--I like the Lexor FL, the Travato G, the Zion, and the Nova, but they are all 21 feet.
--That leaves me with ... the Zion SRT, the likes of which I haven't been able to find within 1,000 miles of NY. (I would get the Weekender package, which adds underhood generator, solar and screen doors.)
It's just me -- a 60-something semi-retired woman -- and my dog at the moment, but I need a double bed+ cuz ... ya never know....
I love the GW, but with my age and lack of mechanical acumen, I feel it's time to get something that is safer, more reliable and worry-free. But not bigger. I really don't know from custom manufacturers or chassis, so please be kind to me.
What am I missing about my choices? I realize it's a seller's market, and I SUPPOSE I could wait until it gets colder, but what should I be looking at?
And yes, I AM reading all your posts to others looking for similar advice! Thanks in advance.
