Ok, the sober second review that lead to the painful tenth review is done. After all the information was gathered and reviewed, all the advice from folks on this forum, truck dealer, our RV dealer and friends...... we've decided to move away from the fifth wheel. Although the TV would likely pull it, it would require some serious modifications in the form of new gear, some other suspension upgrades and not to mention an expensive hitch, or forbid the thought.... replacement!!!!! So, after some more looking we have put an offer in for a Rockwood 2604WS Emerald Edition Ultra Lite. It has a nice floor plan, has about the same interior space, a year newer(2015) than the 5er and more importantly..... the TV can pull it with no problem as it is.
We want to thank all who took the time to offer their thoughts, they helped with the sober review. Will post pics when the new one is in the yard. Again thanks to all for your help.
