Jay, what is the width of the Cirrus? It sounds like a good choice. We have a 1998 Lance Lite 165-s-xcab that we’re nursing along to get us through another year or two of hard core off roading. That’s the cue: we have nothing to loose here. We have beat on this thing and it always bounces back. It has been very good to us through thick and thin. It’s the same footprint as the Lance 825, except a little lighter with updated technology. Here are some stats: weight: 1842 pounds wet (18 gallons fresh water and full propane); 86 inches wide; 6’4″ ceiling height; queen N/S bed; 18 gal fresh water; 14 gal black; 12 gal grey water; wood frame; aluminum roof; new electronics and 200 watts solar; wet bath; 2 burner range top; no oven; no microwave; we leave the jacks at home. We travel lighter than some, counting every calorie, so my estimate of the loaded for bear TC weight is 2650 pounds. Have you looked at the Lance 650? It’s not for everyone, but if I was to replace the old 165-s, i would definitely check it out. The one overriding consideration is keeping the weight down if off-roading.
