If money was no object, the KZ inferno 43 footer from a couple of years ago would be my purchase.

We love the front living floor plans. May just be an optical illusion, but it seems like they have tons more room than the rear living floor plans. The rear entertainment I like also. I think my main gripe with rear living is the TV is typically 15' away from the chairs and often a 32" or less.

From personal experience and those of friends - we all found the variable weights we had in the fridge increased the likelihood of slide binding / increased slide motor strain especially if the fridge was loaded for a long weekend stay. This was most apparent when located at a slide end vs. the middle.

For these reason we stayed away from slides designs that allow for significant weight differences from one side to the other when looking for our new camper.

For us- our dream RV came down to the floor plan and specific features that we wanted. Once we had the basic floorplan concept down- we established a set of criteria when evaluating the nuances of one camper to another with seemingly similar floorplans. Ultimately, what we bought hit most but not all of them and is frankly longer than I had hoped to be.

I'm not sure that there is a perfect RV- even if you custom design it yourself. There will always be limitations be they plumbing concerns, stuffing 10 pounds of potatoes in a 5 pound sack or having to give up one thing for another (less cabinets, but more windows).

You will not be able to pull a big fiver with a 3/4 ton gas truck. Went to the Houston RV show last weekend and I picked up a flyer for the Cedar Creek amoung others and there was not one Cedar Creek that I could tow with my 2012, F250, diesel, CC, longbed, RWD, not any one of them. The pin weight was to much and even the GCRW would be an issue on all but the smallest one. If you plan on towing with a gas 3/4 ton, I would look at lighter fivers. Good Luck

This thread was a fantasy about money being no object. It should go without saying that we would all buy F450's or larger to haul our dream trailers.

I mentioned the Cedar Creek as my dream trailer but to go with that I would also buy an Apex 189FBS to use for "camping." The Cedar Creek would be for travel.

I'd probably get an Aviator Wright Flyer..... that was meticulously built and everything worked and nothing leaked..... That last part really IS a dream, now, ain't it?
