We have the S260BHS, a little smaller but the same kitchen, slide and front bedroom. First, confirm the weight. 6 months after we bought ours we got a new weight label from Cruiser RV adding 700 pounds to the dry weight. As far as quality, there are some videos on YouTube showing construction in the factory, so you can see how they are put together. There are some choices made that seem to indicate they are trying to use better materials: stainless steel kitchen sink, Marinco power cord, alloy wheels, Beaufloor flooring. Other choices are for weight, especially the cabinets. Doors are solid wood and plywood, but the carcasses are built with lightweight plywood wrapped with vinyl. Screws do not hold well in the lightweight core. Most of the other fittings are basic RV, lots of plastic, the most basic appliances, etc. The big slide really opens up the floor space, but you may not be able to access the bunkhouse or bathroom with it closed. Many people find that important, it is not to us. The only issues we had were one loose piece of trim, no signal from the antenna and the awning broke (Dometic issue.) All were repaired quickly by our dealer, Family RV in Pomona. Since June we have 26 nights in the trailer and do not regret our purchase.
