You do hear a lot of stories on getting leaks from the pull down doors so watch all of that pretty close. Its all in how your treat those things probably...
17-feet to 24-feet is prefect size for us...
I read on this board and on RV Net, to fold the tents out and wet them down thoroughly a couple times, let dry completely, and it tightens the stitching and helps avoid the leak problems. We have done this, so hopefully it will have an impact.
For us, the beauty of the tent ends is twofold; 1. It allows us to have that "out in nature" feel that we have really come to enjoy over the years, and 2. It adds considerably to the inside dimensions of the trailer. It's 17' closed up, 23 feet with both tents down. It feels quite spacious and open inside, which is really nice. Our neighbor has a 25 ft Jayco Eagle, and he was blown away when he came inside ours and said "it feels as big as mine inside."
