I agree !
We recently went through the same process.
Starting with an 88 Wilderness 25 foot 5er with no slides. We have enjoyed it immensely but plan to do more extensive travels in the future, so we started looking around for something newer with a little more room and features.
First we looked online, camping world, dealers, eBay, to get an idea of the features and layout we liked.
I really liked the rear kitchen and my wife liked an enclosed bathroom and an island bed. One slide on the L/R and possibly one on the B/R.
From there we built a list of units to look at and set up a long weekend to travel and check them out.
We looked at a lot of crap. It's amazing how nice things look in photos!
All the dealers wanted to sell us a brand new rig. We didn't want to spend that much and honestly weren't that impressed with new rigs.
Finally we got to the rig we liked best online, it was the furthest away, had all the features we liked, and was in good shape. It is now ours
It is a 2010 Jayco HT 29.5 RKS and we are quite happy.
It's a lot bigger than our old unit and we had to trim trees to get it in the driveway, and it won't fit in some of the old places we used to go, but it will be perfect for some extended travels.
Good luck with your search.
