Since you already have RV'ed in a fifth-wheel this may not apply to you. But before I stepped up to the "big time" (2011 390RB) I bought a 10 year old gasser to see if I'd really like MH'ing. That was in August of 2010.
Spent two winters in AZ (8 months in '10 6 months in '11). Got home to Colorado last April and we asked ourselves "Why are we here"? It just didn't seem right anymore.
Sold the gasser and bought the Berk and we are now full time. The funny part is that we'll probably spend a good part of our summers back in Colorado.
Sorry for the rambling, but this has all worked out very well for us. Spent 6 months on the Web looking for this Berk. IMHO, I came out a lot better in buying from a private individual off the web. Saved a minimum of $20K by not buying thru a dealer.
The '11 Berk had just enough miles on it to get it from the factory to Salt Lake City. It was previously titled, so most of the warranties are not valid for me, but still basically brand new. A dealer told me I paid less than wholesale for it.
