Talking Yes....

IN A SECOND.

And I'd get the exact same model, with the EXACT same features. The only differences would occur after I got it: (#1) that I wouldn't need to put in an "after-market" stereo (they're now standard); and (#2) I wouldn't have to do lots of long velcro strips to create a better seal between the bathroom walls and the hanging "leather-like" vinyl seal from the roof. (I understand that in current models, the hard-shelled roof goes all the way up.)

Thumbs up There is no question, YES.

We went from a 38 ft motorhome to a 2720SL. We wanted more storage & counter space, we bought a new 3124KS. Now we are in heaven.

I was afraid that when you sold the 2720SL that you would no longer be here. I'm glad I was wrong! Welcome back!

Senor! Welcome back! I was sorry when you left us "forever", and I'm pleased to look forward to your continuing contributions here.

Cool Leaving

Hey guys, thanks for the welcome. We do love our TM, but we are still selling it. Health problems involved. I was just trying to encourage folks to start enjoying camping.

See Ya!

Too bad! I will hate to see you go! Sorry to hear about the health problems. We love Sedona, too, as you obviously do. We are Sunterra members and go to Sedona whenever as we can.

We just sold our Trailmanor for the reason that setting up/taking down hassle...having said that, we are a "Senior Couple" and so climbing up and down, etc. got to be a hassle....as far as the quality of the TM, you can't beat it and the ease of towing can't be beat! I would recommend TM to anyone even though we sold ours! It just was a personal decision!

Ponderosa SP and McCall, Idaho were suffering from forest fire smoke and falling ashes. Our new TM was grimey with black, sooty residue. Washed TM and TV in a do-it-yourself, which helped. Am only now finally getting everything clean (we've been home a week). Visited Pendleton, OR, Hood River, OR, Columbia Gorge, and Ike Kinswa SP (WA) on the way home.

TM towed beautifully and worked very well. Mileage was 13. Marathon tires held their 50 psi (I checked every AM). Spacious interior makes the whole trip better. Strongly recommended, but I think all TMs are pretty special.

Also the replacement cost is very high, especially when you have to add the shipping onto it. If I had gotten a metal 'shed' instead I think that by now it would have paid for itself as opposed to the cloth type. Something to think about...

By the way, I KNOW that this isn't a issue for you in Florida, but whenever it snows up here I have to go out a rake off the cover. A metal one (with the appropriate snow load) wouldn't need that.

I just found this...thanks for the advice. We are still looking ...no decisions yet.

Just returned from 34 days on the road. Stayed in Visalia, CA, Sequoia NP, Yosemite NP. Left TM in Alameda, CA for a reunion in SF. Then on to Redding, CA, Eugene, OR, Cape Disappointment SP, WA, and then home. Whole trip was great, TM tows absolutely flawlessly - even better than our old ('02) 2720. Mileage a respectable 13-14. Interior space is still the show-stopper. We like the 3326, and highly recommend it

On the other hand, I think more people could sleep in some of the other models.
