Chip, lots of good comments from all. My two bits....we chose the 3400 because of the floor plan, kitchen layout, the four slides, among other items. We have the 2007. We loved the 340RL Big Sky, but being weekenders we couldn't justify the almost $20K plus extra for the "Sky" model. We have had no real problems with ours. Love the fireplace and use it to heat with. As I mentioned, the four slides make a huge difference. We have had no problems with stability. I tow with a GMC 3500 SINGLE rear tire w/the Duramax and Allison combo. I have had no problems with that combo.
Regarding dealers, we have delt with Curtis Trailers here in Portland, at the branch in Hillsboro. Been in business since 1948. Wonderful service people, great salesperson. Prices are competetive too. We deal with Dean Williams.
If we were to do it all over again, it would be the 3400, OR if I win the lottery, the 340RL Big Sky.
