One of the things that I love to see in RVs especially smaller ones like the Surveyor Legend 203RKLE is when they have enough counter space to do meal prep – and that is certainly the case here. The counter almost extends the full length of the RV.

You’ll find that because of the Azdel wall thickness they had to install the outlets under the cabinets which some might find inconvenient for using appliances.

The stove has four burners with a microwave oven above it.

I tried to count all of the cabinets and drawers but kept losing count – which is a great sign for storage options!


The 2024 Surveyor Legend 203RKLE’s bathroom is small (makes sense given the RV’s overall size), however, the toilet space is just a little too cramped for someone tall like Josh who stands at just over 6′ tall.

The shower however is another story. The ceiling height here is tall enough for someone like Josh.

Other features include:

  • Porcelain foot flush toilet
  • Towel storage: While primarily for towels, the open-face storage can also hold bottles of body wash and other toiletries.
  • Tankless on-demand water heater makes for a consistent supply of hot water.


The bedroom area is in the living area that we mentioned earlier and is made up of a true queen murphy bed with some handy storage shelves behind it. Check out Josh putting it to use below.

Road Mode

You have access to the whole RV during road mode! You can even have the murphy bed down with the slides closed without worrying about damaging anything at all.

Check out the video by Josh to learn what kind of vehicle you might need to tow something with a max weight of 7,577lbs.


The 2024 Surveyor 203RKLE comes packed with exterior features to make your outdoor experience just as good as your outdoor one.

  • Outdoor kitchenette: The mini outdoor kitchen includes a propane cooker hook-up and a sink.
  • Power awning: While not the largest, the 14′ power awning provides a nice shaded area for outdoor relaxation.
  • Solar package: The 2024 model comes with an impressive 200-watt solar package and a 30-amp charge controller for extended off-grid adventures.
  • Goodyear endurance radial tires: These tires offer improved durability and safety on the road.

Potential Problems

The placement of power outlets under the overhead cabinets may be a concern for some, as it could limit the use of certain appliances.

Good Fit or Bad Fit?

Is the 2024 Surveyor 203RKLE a good fit or a bad fit for you as an RVer? It depends on what you need really. Are you an RVer that likes to go it alone or as a couple? Then this would be a great RV for you.

Are you an RVing family of 6-8 people? Then this probably wouldn’t be the RV for you.
