Weight was important for us

The 26BH weighs 500lbs more. For us that was a big deal. I spent the first week modding my trailer to get better use of the storage. In the long run we are thrilled with our choice of the 264bhw

Wasn't sure what all options the SLX models have compared to the Flights. If they are that close option wise it would be hard to justify spending the extra cash!!!

Good luck deciding!!!

I am consistently impressed by the value that the 26BH brings to the table. My son is looking for his 1st TT and with us having owned a 2009 26BH previously, he put it on his list of candidates. RVone /RVDirect runs a perpetual "special" on this unit with the chill 'n stor fridge option for $15,995 + taxes. At their show this past weekend with little prompting, they tossed in Max Air vents, spare tire/carrier/cover setup, Reese DC W/D hitch, and a P3 brake controller all installed while dropping the price to $15,995 out the door AFTER taxes. I give him credit for not saying yes already. To me, I don't see him finding anything better in terms of value for a 1st time buyer.

That sounds like a very fair deal. Man, I paid $18K CDN for my 2013 26BH, used, last summer!

The 26BH can also be equipped to carry 2x the water of the 24bhw. That is a major consideration for someone who dry camps.

So I just received the quote and the difference between the two is less than 2k so I'm pulling the trigger on the 26BH.

So what kind of WDH should I try to get thrown in. A Hensley is out of the question I know. Any recommendations...Reese, Equalizer etc.

I think you will be happy you got the 26BH...

I have a Reese Dual Cam and like it a lot. It took a little time to set up properly (dealer didn't do the best job), but it works great.

For what I've been seeing, the difference is about $3k. I too am struggling with this same decision. The BH has a gas/electric water heater and cabinets over the couch. Where the BH really differs is if you want to pay for the elite and get the thermal package and larger fresh water tank.
