Default why we have the SL model

We previously had a North Wind by Viking. This unit had a dinette which we used once in the ten years we owned it. For lounging, it was uncomfortable to stretch out with the table right there.
We now have the TM 2027SL model for much the same reasons others have mentioned. We realized that the “children” (22 & 19) were not going to be joining us all that often (yes they do come with us from time to time), but the greater amount of living floor space is much more desirable then another bed which would be empty most times. We can easily stretch out and be very comfortable on the sofa & chair while we watch TV which we have on a small cabinet (not TM 3 draw unit) next to the counter.
As far as the furnace goes, the coldest person gets that seat and loves it.

Welcome Joe and Melissa,

One factor which influenced our choice was the fact you are limited to a 20 gallon water tank, because (as I understand it) the placement of the tank is under the kitchen sink. (It's any model with the sliding area ... a SL or SD) With a model like the 3023 you have the option of an extra tank. For us, that was a major consideration since we expect to do quite a bit of "un-civilized" camping.

We also liked the configuration of the two couches facing each other ... that seemed like a comfortable arrangement for relaxing, etc.

Good luck on finding your TM!

FWIW

We us 10 gallons of water per day. It doesn't matter much how many people are with us. Washing dishes for 2 versus 6 pretty much uses the same amount of water.

Since we have the front bunk version of the 2720 we have a 40 gallon water tank. So I have no problems camping for four days without hookups. Anything longer than four days and I need to make special plans.

A 20 gallon tank would barely last from Friday night until I went home Sunday afternoon.

We really appreciate the wonderful advice from all of you and the warm welcome to the forum! We are mainly state and national park campers and use sites with water & elec. so water storage is not a major issue for us, but we were unaware of the difference in tank sizes. We found a 2005 2720SL on this site and are going to pick it up this weekend. We decided on this model after reading the responses to this posting. Since it is just the two of us, we like the idea of a living area and your comments as owners reinforced that decision. We have copied the information and checklists compiled by Ed Felker and are so grateful to start out with such helpful information. I know this site will continue to be valuable to us as we enjoy our new purchase! Joe and Melissa

Congratulations on your soon-to-be purchase. You are going to be very pleased with TM and with the SL model; I am sure. Enjoy life!
