26bh vs 264bhw

Anyone have an opinion as to if the 26BH is worth an additional 4K?

I bought the 264bhw last year. I added sink covers, stove cover, propane cover all from amazon. Honestly I couldn't justify spending the extra 4 grand on upgrading to the 26bh and didn't really see what the 4 grand gets you. Just my opinion we are really happy with our choice.

When we looked at 2015's, our difference was only around $1800. The 26BH had more storage, the entertainment setup (including TV), a power jack, and an outside mini fridge. So, for us, it was worth the difference. The storage (over the couch and master bed) is one that could not be easily changed - the rest of the stuff could be added after purchase - but when you add it all up, it came pretty close to the difference. I realize this was a different year model, and based on prices at the dealer we were working with, but it might help you decide...

Pretty sure there are major construction benefits the 26bh offers over the 264bhw... Most important is the plywood floor instead of the "foam layered wood" they use on their light weight models.
Might be worth looking into the details of the differences before you buy..

We like our 264BHW, at purchase price difference was about $3000 to go up to the 26BH, I've done some minor improvements to interior, but otherwise just fine. Also like the lighter weight for our TV...
FYI believe the televisions in all models are the cheapest made (work okay though). We go a Samsung 32" LED 1080P that we team up with Blue Ray player (not an option I believe in any trailer)

One difference (last I knew!) is the suspension. The SLX has a lower gvwr and C C than the Flight 26 BH. So depending on how you load you could be near or even over the gvwr of the 264,mbut still have room left with the 26 BH. Myself, j would rather have more cushion than be near max if/when possible.

Tire size? Propane tanks 20 vs 30 lbs maybe??? Fridge size? WH gas only in the 264, with electric option on 26? Same stabilizer jacks or are they different? Electric vs manual awning? Just trying to think of some possibilities of what may be different that isn't obvious.

For us, ccc was something I was looking for. Even found some trailer manufactures have added a portion of the actual tw to the total axles rating for a higher gvwr!!! One trailer we looked at (same exact floor plan as ours) had 2-4400lb axles, but a 95XXlb (don't recall exact amount) gvwr!!! Now how does that add up??? Lol

Best thing to do is go over them both with a fine tooth comb, and maybe even write out the differences on paper for each model to compare.

Good luck deciding!!!
