New camper hunt

so we went looking at a bunch of campers on the weekend, and I ruled a bunch out for various reasons like, to expensive, bad floor plan, bathroon in the back making the main area feel closed in and so on.  one of the toughest ones I had to eliminate though was the Palomino HS-2912.  that rear deck just increased the living space so much and added so much useage senarios I was willing to overlook the rear bath and the fact it had a couch instead of a dinette.  it has so much usable storage and was at the max if not a little over the weight I can carry leagaly.  what finaly got it eliminated was two things,

1)           the on demand hot water...    I almost excluivly boondock with the truck camper and I am not a fan abote the water waist from a on demand system, and

2)           the non ducted furnace.  really, in this day and age you can have a ducted furnace and heat the bathroom ? its right beside the furnace. 

the narrowing continues but so far the bang for your buck leaders are the Adventurer 901SB, and the 910DB.  what I am looking for is under 3500 dry weight (the 910 is right around that and the 901 is about 3000 depending on which options it came with) north south bed, bathroom with leg room when yout sitting on the toilet and heated and a good layout with a forward bathroom.  I like how the forward bath opens up the back end and with windows makes it seem much larger and gives you a wrap around view.  good thought out storage is a must also.

Good luck on your search!  I know there are a few manufacturers without large distribution centers that I'd like to look at some day, Rugged Moutain is one of them.
