Found this 2008 S&S 11FBSC in AZ, 11', dry bath, jenny, lotsa storage, and side entry...and it's 400lbs lighter than our present S&S. I saw one of these once in person and loved it, working on it now...hahaha

I like the interior on that one..My wife keeps talking larger RV and it would be nice but it would eliminate most of the places I go...So we're keeping it the way it is for a while..

I'd buy that in a heartbeat if it checked out and was what I was after..love the floorplan..

She's coming around...the other day she said that it would probably work for what we need, and she does like the side entry.

Except for the side entry, the floor plan looks the same as our Northern Lite 10-2 CD, which we love.

Looks to be in great shape from the pics.
A word of caution though. It's sitting outside in a dealer lot or storage area and AZ sun is relentless. You would be well served to ensure that the camper has been stored indoors or undercover primarily, or it could be extra crispy!
(Maybe it's not spent much time down there or whatever, but something to consider)

Haven't decided if we want to go see it yet, and yes we have concerns of "crispy" being an issue.

You will love side entrance if you travel a lot.
I have 2 campers and 2001 model of Lance come from AZ. The decals are faded, but years under the sun did not damaged the siding yet.
My 2nd camper has similar floor plan, but with rear entrance offers a bit more of space, when "a bit" is a lot when it comes to TC.
So on long run, I rather have more space (especially in bathroom) than convenience of side entrance.
Go to see the camper, get into shower, close the curtain and see if you can turn without ripping something.
Can you sit comfortable on the throne without opening the door?
Can you get in without pushing the slide?
Where is the wardrobe?
