Really appreciate your response to my questions re: skylark. Am so grateful. I also wanted to let you know that I just put a deposit down on a 2012 Skylark.
Sincere thanks.

We chose to add the a/c versus the heat pump. I'm not sure of the btu's of the heat pump but the a/c is 13,000. The tanks are located on the side opposite of the door. The grey tank is in front of the axil and the black is behind it. This true is a great little trailer. Really good features and plenty of room. We have the FKV model.

I'm going to the Hershey show to look at the Skylark, is the vent in the ceiling a fantastic vent? Where is the fresh water tank and has anyone used the tankless water heater? Thnx

No, the vent is not a fantastic fan. This would have to an after market change. All of the tanks are set under the trailer and balanced around the axel. I'm not familiar with the tankless water heater. That was not an option on our model. It has been fun to watch the evolution of the Skylark. We are still very pleased with the FKV model. It fits our family very well. Towing the Skylark has been very easy. Of course you need to pack light. But that has not been an issue. Enjoy your tour of the Skylark. Which floor plan are you interested in?

We love ours. In fact, I am typing this while I am in it. Everyone else is asleep and I am surfing the net. We have the 6gallon water heater. Just time showers right and havent had any trouble!

I like your model, the front kitchen. I'm torn between this and the Visa 17 rwd new model or Lance has new 1575 with slide- All 3 are around $20K. I notice there is little carrying capacity in the Skylark, like 400 lbs. There is sooo much space in the Skylark, how do you keep it to a minimum?

For us it is just experience. We were overwhelmed coming from a pop up with very little space. Our first trip, I think we brought everything but the kitchen sink. As we go we trim down. This last trip we hardly brought anything.

Smile Ordered a Skylark 21FKV

I traded in our 2010 Trailmanor 2720SD for the 2012 Skylark 21FKV which will be delivered
around November. The Trailmanor and the Skylark are approximately the same weight. I tow with a 4Runner, V6 with no problem. I would have purchased the Skylark had it been available at the time I bought the Trailmanor. It was all about weight. Looking forward to this owners forum as from experience with the Trailmanor's forum a wealth of information is available.

PS: Iasked the dealer to install a Fantastic Fan in the forward vent as this will provide exhaust air flow when cooking and provide more ventilation.

Gerry - congratulations on the new Skylark. We had considered the Trailmanor when we started looking for TT's. But the Skylark caught our eye and we have been enjoying ever since. Great choice on the Fantastic Fan. Can't wait to see pictures when your new Skylark arrives.
