Welcome Wayne & family!
We looked at Outbacks back in 2004 but went with the KZ Frontier instead. Just a little trailer history for you camper trivia buffs... KZ stands for Kaufmann & Zook, the 2 founders. Zook split and went to Outback. That's why you see a lot of Outbacks and Frontiers (now Sprees) with similar floorplans. KZ put a patent on the Frontier rear slide so Outback could not use it. Not sure why KZ did not use that rear slide mechanism on the Sprees, but it was sweet! One of the reasons why we went the Frontier 8 years ago.
