    I have a good friend who has a 29RS. Itís been in the shop several times for the kitchen slide, which is really too heavy for a schwintech drive setup. Look hard at the tires and any evidence of water intrusion, plumbing or winterization problems.

    Itís a nice floor plan, but I donít personally like it, because itís reverse from ďnormalĒ. The big dinette windows are on the street side, many campgrounds and campsites are oriented for a view on the curb side... itís not a big deal, but Iíve been spoiled with the big windows in my 303. I can see when someone or something is approaching the door, before I open it.

    Am I correct in thinking that the (30'11") 29RS is no longer mfg/offered in the Regular REFLECTION line ???

    What if anything is equivalent to the 29RS (260RD???)

    I'm trying to make decisions between 303RLS, 295RL, or the (29'9") 260RD

    Thanks for your advice and experience

    The 29RS became the 280RS, went from being a full size and weight reflection, to a 150 series trailer.

    There was a lot of overlap in the 29RS/303RLS/295. You couldnít order a 29RS last year, but a lot of dealers had them.

    Many folks shy away from the 260RD, and trailers like it, because you canít get to the bathroom or bedroom without extending the living room slide.

    It was a deal breaker for me. On the road at the fuel stop, or rest area, I want to be able to use the bathroom, get into the fridge to make a meal, or go lay down and get a little nap, without extending a slide. Some folks donít care, because of how they intend to use their rig, it just doesnít work for me, your mileage may vary.

    Sabre Driver, I have just been reading a 260RD thread where so many people said it was a GOOD
    Couples 5ver.............

    I'm now Looking at Floorplan and can SEE where the stairs to Bathroom & Bedroom would be blocked
    with Slide IN....Are both doors of 12 cuft frig also blocked from opening by ?????

    I dont think I want the 280RS because of the Outside Frig & TV

    I'm reluctant to jump up to the 295RL or should I consider it's 32'9" Length ????

    In the 303, my rig, with all the slides in you can access the bathroom and the bedroom to lay down and almost all of the closet storage. As well as both sides of the freezer and the right side of the fridge. You can reach into the left side of the fridge and grab things, except for the drawers. It works well for us. Not being able to get to the bathroom or bedroom was a ďno goĒ for us, based on the way we use our rig to travel.

    For 2 people the 303 really is a hard one to beat for all the reasons stated above plus room to move around in long stretches or bad weather. It fits in most parks, only a couple times we had places we couldn't fit that we wanted to go to.

    It's a big purchase and you want the right fit. If you can go sit in each model and poke around for a couple hours each. This will give you an idea of getting the right rig for you. Everyone has their own idea of what is right..sometimes that idea is proven wrong after time is spent inside. That's why there are so many floor plans. Regrets after the purchase are hard to swallow.

    You have the truck that will pull a 303, is the length an issue for you ?
