We downsized to a TC from a "C" now that the kids are grown. We bought a used unit to see if it would work for us, well it does and we got a new Northern Lite and we absolutely love it. Our N.L. is by far the BEST built camper we've ever owned. Tons of storage inside, most times more than we need. Outside, we have ample basement storage for two people's needs/wants, no need to carry too much "stuff" anymore. Being able to stop at a moments notice for things that catch your eye is priceless. If your survey had a maintenance, section it would get five stars as well. This is the best way to TOUR our most beautiful country, IMHO.
Owned a Lance and this is a huge upgrade. Having this camper for two years, it is a great camper with some small imperfections. When we are off road the bathroom mirror latch fails on bad roads. We've had to add a "baby" cabinet latch to prevent it from opening. Similarly the toilet paper holder has the same issue on rough roads. One expensive lesson we learned is to never leave a window open and drive. The windows are not to be left open when moving. We had a minor emergency and had to leave a site on a dirt road to get back to town. We left the window partly up and the latching mechansim was destroyed and the window lost within a 3 mile drive. A warning sticker would be helpful right next to the emergency exit sticker. Overall a great camper that we spend 30-50 nights in a year. I'd buy another one.
