We had an Outback 210urs before we got our 262BH. That first trailer tought us alot about what we really wanted. The 262 fit all our check boxes, we really like the floor plan, double sliding doors to front bedroom, TV far from the front bedroom so we can sleep in if the kids get up early. We wanted a couch directly across from the TV. We are very happy with this trailer, anything we didn't like was generally small items that I have modified (my mods are posted on this site). I guess if I'm trying to think of something I would rather be different that I can't change I guess it would be a bigger bathroom.

Congrats on the trailer and welcome to the forum!

Been quite a while (2011) but when we traded up from a 27 foot jayco hybrid to our 300BH it was a huge upgrade for us. Hybrid was nice and short but having a real bedroom and 5-10 minute campsite setup time was awesome. Oh, and when it was pouring rain and storming...nice, quiet, warm (or cool) and comfy. Plus we got to camp out west in bear country after the upgrade. Can't do that in a hybrid..most campgrounds won't let ya in ..for good reason.

First full season with our 262

Did you get the new upgraded 2019 262? We traded from a Hybrid to our 2919 model, upgrade has the King bed, stabilized steps, full size sink and the outdoor grill instead of the burners. I literally buzzed through the entire Hershey RV Show with my 10’year old daughter, she was such a trooper, and this was our favorite model. Only used it for 2 quick weekends last fall so we are excited to begin the season. Love the slide and all the windows in it, the tv location and sofa. Love the master suite and the large awning the covers the outdoor kitchen. So many bonuses from our 24’ hybrid, quick set up and tear down, steps to reach the roof. Small bathroom, but that’s ok. Love the gas grill in the outdoor kitchen instead of the burners. Black water tank clean out and all the blue lights and plenty of storage. Enjoy ��

Congratulation and welcome fellow Milwaukean! We're chomping at the bit to get our 32RL, which we love, uncovered and ready for WI summers!

we also had a 23' Jayco hybrid.Got tired of the setup also.
Don't know what the upgraded is.it sounds like the features you have I also have.
We did pick up the kingsize bed'
we added an additional tv in bedroom. And backup camera monitor. I did have issues with the stairs though.one of the feet were stuck in the channel .when I held up the stairs to pull the foot out. Forgetting that the stairs fold into trailer the doors have to be open. The stair frame got twisted and the doors would not close.Called dealer. they will take care of it.the led lights on top of trailer need to be replaced they will take care of things then

Yes, those features are with the newer model. I had actually seen 2019 models that didn't have those features, and at one point was considering a good buy on a leftover 2018, but because of the bed, the outdoor grill and the stairs decided to stay with the updated 2019 model. It seems to me there will usually be little issues that have to be ironed out when buying a new camper, and I know what you mean about the steps. Still have a few things to figure out completely, and get her figured out. One thing I do really like is that this camper seems to tow better than my lighter weight hybrid, it makes the towing seem more solid, which is nice too. Definitely love not having to set up and tear down the beds, that is Huge, oh, and the outdoor refrigerator. Not having to keep buying ice for the cooler is super nice. Our first trip is in 2 weeks, my family and me are really excited.
