Which model? I was considering a 35gb4 but after looking at a couple, the back wall storage. The drawers and cabinets could open and catch in the slides. 2 I looked had the lower drawers knobs broken off with the shanks bent toward the side operation.

I have a 2011 Silverback 35k that I have owned for a year now. We use it every month and have really enjoyed it. No real issues at all. The only problem was a bad diode in a wire inside the fridge but is not related to the rv itself but rather the fridge. It was a simple fix. Other than that it has all been good. Feel free to pm me if you like and I will share my cell number if you would like to speak in person.

Hope this helps.

I am sitting in my 2011 29RE as I type this. We bought ours last December and this is our second trip. No major issues at all. My only problem is with the Jensen surround sound unit. The radio and DVD play works fine, but when using with TV after warm up we get a high pitch whine (or at least my wife does, I can't hear it). You have to turn it up almost as high as it will go to get sound. I plan to take it back to dealer when I get back home. I looked at different brands and could not find anything comparable in build quality for the price. you can PM me if you have any specific questions.

We have the 31B2 w/ 3 slides @ 37' for the DW and our 2 girls. We love it w/ no issues to date other than a tear in the vinyl floor from the factory. We have 39 days in it last year and are leaving for 14 days at Disney in a month. They are well made units w/ great features, we had a Cross Roads Cruiser before our Silverback and spent a ton of time comparing other units until settling on this one. Good luck w/ you search and ask me any other questions.

We have a 2011 29RL and we love it. No major problems other than a problem with the furnace which turned out to be a loose wire. The floorplan is great. This is our second Silverback. The first was a 2005 29LRLBS and we pulled it over 45ooo miles and into 45 states. When it was time for a new 5er there was not even a second thought about what brand we wanted.

Just took possession of our new one 2 wks. ago. Love the layout. Two slides with cathedral ceilings make the living area comparable to a small apartment.

One criticism though ... the slides run too close to the cabinet handles in the back. If not totally level, or the cabinets swing open during travel, the knobs will catch. Of course, that's all hidden behind the slides, so even if you could see it, you couldn't get to it. We temporarily solved the problem by removing them and will consider flatter ones.

Also, the entire LR and kitchen is inaccessible during travel, so depending on how you move, it might prove problematic. We're FTers, drive short distances every few weeks and rarely stop for meals in the rig on travel days. If that's not your style, you might want to reconsider that layout. You can get to the toilet, which is a plus.
