Then you can leave the black closed, open both Greys to equalize and this valve will let you remove the cap to put the hose on with out making a mess

My DW and I took ownership of a new 27DSRL this summer. We have been out 3 times and love it. Traveled about 1300 miles altogether, and it's a great match for our F150.

Having said that, we have made several mods to eliminate things we just didn't want to deal with. After our very first trip, I replaced both the shower head and bathroom faucet. Faucet was a complete joke. We could barely wet our fingertips, as it extended over the bowl about 1/2".

Our shower had the very common problem with leaking. Several threads here are dedicated to that topic. I first caulked along the bottom of the enclosure. No change. I then caulked around the panels of the enclosure themselves. Bingo!!! No more water running into the bedroom. The panels are surrounded by a little clear gasket that is completely inadequate.

Ours came with the little faux leather swivel rockers. Those have been replaced. So uncomfortable.

DW is not altogether happy with the amount of room in front of the bathroom sink. Very tight. And she needs a step stool to use the mirror, as it is practically against the ceiling.

We can't wait to go out again.

Good luck with your decision.

Cheers,
Greg

Thanks! Unfortunately we can't find all our needs and wants in one camper. This one meets most of ours. Really like the living area. Thanks for the advice on the shower. Yes, the faucet will have to be replaced in the bathroom.

I replaced our bathroom faucet in about thirty minutes. It is a must do, and all you need is some plumbers tape, aside from the new faucet. There is not much room to work under the counter so you will have to lie on your back with a flashlight pointing up under the sink. The sink area in the 27DSRL is small I agree, however, we are very comfortable in the trailer.

We decided to remove the recliner closest to the door and use that space for other things. It was always in the way and never used. All said, the TT has served us very well.

Good Luck

We found basically the same thing. We looked seriously for over a year and so many TTs were close to what we wanted, but there was always something missing, it seemed. The living area was very important, and thus far we are completely happy with that. We spend a few minutes at a time in any uncomfortable area, such as the bathroom, whereas we often spend many hours at a time in the living room.

Another 27 DSRL owner here since June. Same as the other posters, the Faux Leather chair on the Curb side is coming out and a padded bench seat (with storage) is in the works. Not too unhappy with the Bathroom faucet but it will be replaced this winter. We are happy with the living space and the bathroom separation between LR & BR. With the two of us, along with a Lab & GSP, we still have plenty of room to relax.

X2.....this valve will serve the purpose or I use the Valterra valve with the clear section but either way you have a 2nd valve involved in draining.

Just curious...why are you glad to be going back to a TT from a class C? We are thinking a class c might be in our future.

I thought the class c was going to be a great way to travel. It is nice inside with plenty of storage. From our first trip I was very unhappy with the ride. The passenger seat lacks leg room and gets very hot from the motor. It is very noisy when moving. I prefer to ride in our truck with a tow behind. Hooking up a trailer takes less time than hooking up our tow vehicle with braking system. I think it is all personal choice.
