2910??? The family is looking at the Passports, we are really interested with the 2910 as it has everything we want and some nice upgraded features too.

It's a 2008 280BH. The layout worked well for me, the ex and her son.

Now I guess it'll work just as well for just me and the dog with the occasional friend tagging along.

The 2910 is almost the same but with a full slide vs the mid slide.

That is a nice bachelor pad for you and the pup!

Nice layout in the 2910. I like the swivel TV at the end of the bed. Mine doesn't have that. Love the U-shaped dinette too.

Ours is the 261RKS. I think it is a great compromise between light weight and comfort, with a few luxury touches.

I've owned over a dozen Chevy trucks but this truck is quickly becoming one of my favorite trucks.
If you haven't already, there is a Lance Owners Forum "LanceOwners.org" which is rather light on participation, but can be informative when needed.

We got our MY12 Lance 1985 in June, and the Ford F-150 FX4 SCREW EB (Max Tow) a week later. Although my Range Rover could tow it fine, being wider than my previous trailer (8ft vs 7ft) made it impossible to see behind, even with mirror extenders.

Traded the wife's Audi Q5 for the F-150. She actually likes the truck better. Go figure.

I found the ride rather "bouncy" with the F-150, but just installed some "Rancho 9000XLs" for the rear to see if I could smooth it out.

Feel the same way about my FX2. Initially thought it was 4x2 versus my previous 4x4 but others here have said the same about the 4x4's. Makes for a nice ride with no weight, but "rock&roll" when loaded, with or without a WDH in my case.

I was thinking up upgrading my shocks to BilsteinHD but then decided to try the Roadmaster Active Suspension (RAS) first. Haven't got it yet but others have said it should help with bounce under load (as well as axle wrap and wheel hop).

I can tell you the RAS took care of the bounce I was getting while towing my camper. Great product!
