My vote would be to keep what you have.

Intent 29L

We bought a 29L in March. This was our first A, after owning a 5er and 2 bumper pulls. Out the gate, I installed front and rear sumo springs, safe-t-plus, and did the CHF. I also installed an automatic transfer switch for the generator. Not sure why this unit doesnít come with one installed, but it is an absolute must. With all of the upgrades, we absolutely LOVE the unit. Others have had bad experiences, but I truly believe itís all relative. Having owned several campers already, our expectations for quality control were very low. As such, we were pleasantly surprised. Weíve put almost 8k miles on the unit, and have camped in it a collective 37 days. The only issue we had was a leaking fitting on the water manifold when we run the pump. That was a super easy fix...just tightened it up. Otherwise remember, this absolutely is an entry model class A. Itís not a diesel pusher so it doesnít have air ride suspension and the engine is in the front. Itís a bit louder than my 2016 ram 2500 with the Diesel engine was, but not much. My wife and I can comfortably converse without yelling, even when Iím not wearing my hearing aids. The house AC is MUCH quieter than any camper Iíve had before, and really keeps the unit cool. I did replace the thermostat with a digital Bluetooth unit, which was a nice upgrade. The head unit in the dash is substandard, so I replaced it with an android unit with Apple CarPlay and a 10Ē screen. I also put the rear view camera on its own switch so I can force it anytime I want. This has proven to be a great setup when flat towing our 4door Jeep Wrangler. Aside from the CB radio, we havenít done anything else, and absolutely love it. BTW, I highly recommend the sumo springs and safe-t-plus. Night and day difference that makes driving this thing fun.

To me, the Intent would be a downgrade from what you have. Bump to the next Class A up (Vista or Sunstar) with a fiberglass roof like you have. The Intent is a rubber roof entry level coach.

We have the 30r. As others have said it is an entry level unit. We came from a C Holiday Rambler and the interior trim is less than that unit. Even with recognizing the trim level is less, we really do like it. The outside amenities are great, we utilize the sink and TV. The awning does not tilt however so that is a minus for us. The only modification is a propane line back to the outdoor "kitchen".

After driving a couple thousand miles the handling is fine. It's a bus not a truck so it is different from the C.

Positives :
Much roomier than our previous unit.
Quieter A/C, cab area
Outdoor entertainment
Still small enough to park relatively easily

Negatives :
TV in lounge area just quit working
Tank guages inaccurate
Gap at bottom of entry door which you can see the pavement below
No guage for propane
Screens on driver and passenger side windows are too small and rattle crazy. We removed and are asking for replacements.

Make up a check list and ensure that you are getting everything you need... Everyone is different, which is why there is so many different "spins" with these units.

Have fun looking!

Are you talking about the angle of the awning when extended? I thought the same thing when I first used mine. It's actually very adjustable. Look at the lower section of the awning arm that has a series of holes in them. I don't remember which holes make it extend straight out and which ones allow it to drop down. The holes in between are for putting it wherever you want in between and to also have one side lower for rain water or AC water draining. It's easiest to make the adjustment when the awning is retracted. Just push the little button and slide the section to the hole you want. Easy.
