Feedback on Sunset Trail Super Lite 24BHI

Looking to buy the 2015 Sunset Trail Super Lite 24BHI and was hoping for feedback. We are going back and forth between that one and the 28BH Reserve. Liking the shorter length of the 24 as well as the lower cost (and still spacious with double slides w/ kitchen island). Any thoughts on the Super Lite line and/or the 24BHI in particular would be greatly appreciated.

Don't let the length discourage you, if you like the 28BH. We love ours and the extras that come with the Reserve line are well worth it. power everything, plus the fireplace is great for cold nights. The 28BH tows like a dream with the wide stance axles, even with my F150.

Thanks for the reply cw3jason. We really do love the Reserve line, but the only dealer who sells them locally (which is what we prefer) isn't being as flexible with the price. Not to go into price, but they are at 20% off msrp and we just want to make sure that's a good enough deal for buying brand new. Other brands we have been getting quotes from have negotiated for far less. We just don't want to over pay as it's a very expensive trailer. Anyone have comments with the quality of the super lite line? They are definitely not as upgraded as the Reserve but seem to offer most of what we are looking for. Thanks again for the feedback.

Super Lite construction is virtually identical to the Reserve. We looked at Super Lites before deciding on another Zinger.

Biggest difference, besides some of the "frills" of the Reserve, is the queen bed is a little shorter. The Zinger bed is same length as a Super Lite, so didn't matter. If you like the features and such of the Super Lite, then go for it. HOWEVER, if the only reason you are considering a Super Lite instead of a Reserve is because of $1000-2000 dollars, the spring for the Reserve. Be an ***hole with the dealer to get price down if you must.

We upgraded after only 3 years because I was too cheap to pay the premium for a slide-out. Buy what you want now and save the wondering if you should have bought it.

Thanks for the input. The difference is $5-6000 which makes it a decent chunk. The dealer has just given us his "best and final" which ended up at 20% off of the 28bh and 16% of the 24bh msrp's. We still aren't sure which way to go. Our tv is a 2011 f150 ecoboost and we have heard it should tow either without a problem. Thanks for the feedback.

My vote is for the 28BH. We love the little extras for us it was worth the difference. We bought ours for a good price, the dealership had just move and was having a grand reopening sale so that savings, 2k, helped seal the deal. I must say that we would have still purchased it at the non sale price.

I got closer to 25% off, but 20 is not bad

I agree - the 20% isn't bad. If you truly like the 28BH, then see if they will take another $2500 off to meet half way. Push hard - especially if you don't have a trade or anything. You can also see when "show time" is - they can sell it now for your price, or at the show for less if it is soon (we could have saved $3000 waiting 3 months - but I didn't want to wait).

This dealer is tough, we feel like we are the ones trying to get their business, not them working to get ours. They have made it crystal clear they will not budge on price after what they quoted us, which is shocking as a dealer 5 hours away just emailed me a quote on the exact model $1000 less than our local dealer. To make matters more complicated, we our mulling over a size/price compromise of going with the st27bh. Too many great choices with this Sunset Trail line!

In situations like you are experiencing "right now" it's some times tough to hold back and not just ---buy it.

You will be happier down the road if you shop around a little more. If this particular dealer is this hard nosed when trying to sell a trailer, can you imagine what it could be like trying to get service if needed?
