SLX v Octane Superlite

Hi. I have a 2020 Octane Superlite 222. I really would like that separate bedroom, rather than the alcove I have now in the 222. I can get a 2021 Jayflight SLX265 for a very good price. I know itís a step down from the Octane, but I do get the separate bedroom rather than the alcove I have now, more room, and I do like the configuration. I also get a step down in some of the fixtures, vinyl on the sofas, and some other things. Any thoughts? Am I making a mistake if I do it? Thanks

Octane vs. SLX

Only thought here is that you decide what makes you most comfortable and, if married, what the spouse likes best. I too have an Octane SL 222. When I make the corner bed I sometimes think like you but I have made a number of modifications that have put that thought behind me. I needed the width and height the octane gives me.
By now you have probably already made your decision.

Still haven’t made a decision because I need to sell mine. I’m curious. What modifications did you make? Maybe I can steal some from you LOL and is the SLX a lot Smaller in height and width?

Octane sl222

Tried sending pics, no success. Some on previous pages on this site. Here is a list.

1. Took out jumper seat and replaced with two storage bins from Loweís $89 ea. Put counter over top.
2. Installed counter extension next to sink for coffee maker, toaster, etc.
3. Installed two additional shelves in pantry under tv.
4. Cut out panel under entrance to bed and replaced with door. More storage.
5. Put shelf in bed area for a fan in outside wall left of the window. Hung shelf below storage cabinets in bed area for my cpap machine.
6. Installed vinyl fence post under tongue for sewer hose storage and a storage box behind propane tanks.
Obviously, I have too much time to think.
