Any feedback welcome!

Go look at Outdoors RV...One of their big selling points is the BIG picture window in the back of the TT...They offer many different floorplans and while a bit more expensive than an entry model, they appear to be better built and are designed for more rugged use.

They are probably the vendor that we will get a TT from in the future...

Have a look at the Pacific Coachworks Tango or Villagio in the 2007 - 2010 model years.
Model 306RLSS.
It not only has the arrangement you describe, but also has a 12 foot slide that goes out 3 feet. Slide contains the dinette and couch. The SS in the model name stands for Super Slide.

It's beautiful! As I type this I'm sitting in one, enjoying the view out that large window with a coffee in hand!

Guess I better add that this one is 32 feet, a bit longer than what you requested.

outback 295RE/298RE. We have the 295RE. The 298 came out a little later and replaced the 295RE. The 298RE is same layout but added a bedroom wardrobe slide. Upside is more closet room, downside is only a window on one side of the bedroom. has a huge rear window, big windows on the side, TV drops down into a cabinet to give full rear view. opposing slides for big living area, fridge,stove,microwave, bath, dinette, cabinets all accessible with the slides in. On the long side of your limit.

2 chairs on one side, couch on the other side and a large dinette.

Ours has 35K+ miles on it and no problems.

the only downside is that earlier models came with 30A service and one AC, which is barely adequate in some climates. Later models did have a 50A option with either a second air or provisions for it.

We have the twin to the 2604, a Flagstaff 26RLWS. Great RV. While there are some cons to the floorplan, it's the best we've found for 2 plus a large labradoodle.

Generically, sounds like you're looking for a 'rear living' floor plan. We had a Jayco WhiteHawk 27DSRL (2013) that pretty much checks your boxes. If you're shopping used it might be one to consider. Jayco has discontinued the model and replaced it with the 28RL.....at an MSRP nearly double what we paid for the 2013 DSRL.

We have a Jayco Jay Flight 27RLS--Rear Living w/large Slide. We love it as it also has a big U-shaped dinette area, walk around queen bed and lots and lots of storage. More than I use----even on 3-4 month trips to Alaska!

We pull it with a Ram 2500 Diesel. A good combination as it handles it with ease, even in the mountains.

That said--we are considering going back to a 20-21 footer w/o a slide. We really like to get off the beaten path and use National Parks, Forest Service, State park campgrounds. So many of those in the west weren't made for anything much more than 21-22'. And, we are really road-trippers more than campers. WE don't go pull up next to a lake and sit for a week. We like to keep on the road every 2-3 days.

It's just the two of us now--grand kids have all out grown Grandma and Grandpa and we aren't up to chasing after the Great Grand-kids. So smaller, simpler is more appealing to us.

Think about how you camp---4-7 days in a spot or are you a road tripper? Do you stay in RV parks with plenty of room or do you like it a bit more remote.

After three different travel trailers and one truck camper, we have discovered there really is no perfect rig that will fit all life stages and all budgets. Figure out what you really are comfortable with and then go for it.

Mine (see signature). Exterior length is 28’8”. One of the main draws for us was the picture window in the rear and the 2 swivel rocker recliners. Easy to spin around and relax with the view. Manufactured in LeGrande,, OR. This TT is the right size for the two of us, and we love the view out the back.
