Florida RV Supershow

DH and I spent several hours Sat and Sun walking around the fairgrounds looking at lots of different brands and units. We also attended a seminar on full timing / extended timing. The fair food was particularly bad ~ bummer. So, here are my favorites. On the least expensive "workable" unit is the Salem 5er. Hemisphere Fifth Wheel by Forest River
I particularly liked the layout and the amount of storage, although, admittedly this is the least acceptable amount and lowest quality I would consider ~ and, not being that familiar with Salem, I'd have to do my homework.

Honorable mention was the Winnebago TT and 5ers. They have a very good quality product, very nice finishes and some great floor plans. I was not familiar with their towables but was impressed.

No. 1 in my book would be the Jayco Pinnacle. It's big and it's expensive but it did the best job at meeting all my needs for storage, seperability (new word ) storage, quality and the "coolness" factor we were looking for. It has the front lounge with fire place, cozy slide out sofas, nice tv, stereo system, etc. I also liked the way the awning comes out between the two front slide outs. It just made more sense to me as I love to sit outside on the "porch". It also had a little cabinet that could be retrofitted for the cat litter box ~ very important to living in an rv with kitties

The close runners up at 2 and 3 are Prime Time Sanibel Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers, fifth wheels and toy haulers and the Spartan Toy Hauler. Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers, fifth wheels and toy haulers.

Fun but exhausting time ~ met a few FROGS there and suggested FROG to a few folks.
