input on the 285RSTS and 291RSTS

We are looking to upgrade to a unit with more living space. The two we are leaning towards are the 285RSTS and the 291RSTS. Another possibility is the 293 RKS. The 285 is easily within our weights but has low capacities for fresh, black and gray... The 291 is at the limits of of our TV fully loaded, 12000, but has a decent hitch weight. The fresh, black and gray are great. The 293 is very close on hitch, 1900+ and our limit is 2040. Advertised total is 11995.
And a must have is the auto-leveling!!!
Our "local dealer", Sierra RV, will be taking on the 5th Wheels of Jayco towards the end of the year
Who has any of these and what are your thoughts?

We purchased the 293rks in june and we really like the floor plan and all the storage. Tows great and ours came in under 10,000 lbs dry. We opted for the booth seating instead of gree standing table and chairs, that gave us storage and there is only 2 of us. Went with smaller fridge that allowed for an extra pantry. Double pane windows and mortyde pin box. I tow with chevy 2500 ltz 6.5 foot bed extended cab 6 liter gas motor with 4.10 rear end gears with no problems. Good couples coach.

We just bought a 28.5 RSTS and the room is great! There is not much difference between the Eagle HT & Eagle RSTS but is lighter. The build is almost identical and if you Google the to Eagle HT vs Eagle there are some good comparisons out there as well. If you TV can handle any of them there all a good choice
