Do you still travel for half the year in the camper? Reason for asking is durability of the next camper. When you said "equal to Sunline quality" that cuts out many brand campers. Need to make sure the camper will hold up to large travel distances and use.
Next is the tow vehicle. The camper and the truck need to match up well for that kind of distance traveling. If your current truck is taxed with the T-1950, going to a 24-25 footer can put you in a larger pulling truck.
Do you have any thoughts in mind of new or good used on both the truck or the camper?
Any ideas on floor plan that meets your needs? You said slide, what type of slide are your referring too?
A T264SR is a little longer at 27' 7" with a couch and dinette slide (super slide) and is a very nice and popular layout for 2 people. But, that size camper and "stuff" in the truck bed can reach a 3/4 ton truck real quick.
A slide that only has a dinette or couch that pops out is often a much smaller pulling wise camper. And these can fit into a "correctly" optioned full size pick up with the right engine, rear axle, payload package and tires. There are light weight campers out there now, but if you are doing a lot of distance, need to research the ones that will hold up.
Give us some thoughts on your likes, wants and can affords... list.
Hope this helps
