Our new 31SS
We just picked up our 31SS at the beginning of the month, and just got back from our first (local) excursion. Like you, we looked at the 33BD, but it was too heavy. My Toyota could pull it, but it was out of my comfort zone. Also, it's 3.5' longer than the 31ss, and has the useless (in my opinion) second entry door. Also, you have to pull the TV out so you can see it at the dinette, which for my clumsy butt, would be an accident waiting to happen!
The dealer told me the 33BD was a new addition to the lineup, and they consolidated the line, which meant the 31SS was dropped.
We're new to RVing, but I think the 31SS fits us perfectly. The kids love it
