I bought a 2009 256RKS in Sept 2009 and in Oct 2010 bought a 2011 320 RLDS The trade cost us about $5000 in use on what I paid for the unit but it was so worth it for all the extra's we gained and lots more room. You only live once if it makes you happy and the other half supports that idea GO FOR IT.

That is a very nice floor plan. We can't get that two foot thing as our 330RLTS is as long as travel trailers come. We had a 5er and didn't like all the steps and not having our truck bed free.

I have to ask Clutch, how well does the TT tow compared to the 5er? I see so many 5er owners say they would never go back to TT because the 5er towed so much better, including my FIL. I`ve never towed one so I have no way of knowing other then these anecdotes.

That's what we don't like about a 5er. But they are a sweet tow.

To be honest I really can't tell much difference when towing. The lower profile helps, I think, and I always use the WD bars.

You will loose at least 40% on the trade... unless you are a superb negotiator.

WOW, that is hilarious!!! It IS the "two footitis". Actually 3' for me, but I thought I was the only one that got it. hahaha

I am going to do more research, find a floorplan with slide-outs, manual awning, and swivel chairs.

In the meantime, enjoy this 23' baby I have now.

Also depends on how much you paid for your present one. Check NADA.com to get an idea of how much yours is worth. If you received a good enough deal on it, there is the possibility it could be worth more than you paid for it. It was the case for the 5er I have.

We are very happy with the 320rlds, love the larger tanks, and having recliners with the big rear window to look outside. It pulls very well with my ram 2500, we hold 65mph in 25 mph head winds and cross winds. The 320rlds is 35' 6" from ball to bumper.Most 18 wheelers going down the highway are 55', My truck and tt are at 56'.
