Lol!!
Its a crap shoot getting some options without ever seeing them in person, because little things do make such a big difference in a camper. We rolled the dice on the superlounge on our Sabre and im so glad we did!!

All very sound advice, I appreciate it very much.

We intend to camp with full hookups most of the time, will probably not boondock too often, as in once or twice a year tops.

I did check the sabre line it looks like a good one to research further, thanks for the tip. Also the stoneridge looks nice as well.

If you're looking in the Vegas area, go to JohnniebWalker RV. My family has bought several from them and they are very fair. I've had bad experiences with the Camping World in Vegas.

Thanks for the heads up. I will be sure to check them out.

What type of bad experience have you had?

Mike, go back and re-read the first three responses...

Posts #2, #3 and #4 pretty much gave you the best advice you could receive...don't rush...do take your time if at all possible...study up...and have fun. Everyone's needs, stage of life, preferences, and camping styles are different. The analysis is cheaper when you follow that advice in your selection (sort of a "measure twice, cut once" approach). Enjoy the journey!

Now I've never owned anything but motor coaches. But try all the little things. Get in and out of the bed. Even try & make the bed. Usually difficult!! (No room on sides). The above suggestions great. Set on couch an see what angle the TV is.

Last and MOST important. Pick the unit your wife wants!!!

Just experience FYI that applies as others have: start with the steps going and entry grab handle! Enough steps and stability?! Inside, unless you are into pain in neck, make sure you are not looking at TV sideways!
If a fifth wheel, make sure you can get to the refer and bathroom when needed. We use ours all of the time at rest areas across America. You will make compromises. New ducted, whisper quiet, air is the way to go.
We were CLOSE to buying a Keystone High Country and switched to a Cedar Creek Silverback because of construction. Gave up my small outdoor kitchen. Ours is 36 ft long and a 2500 diesel truck, with lift assist is necessary. Consider that as you shop!
New units have electric fireplaces. They actually WORK!
Upgrade your mattress at purchase! We bought top of the line Serta home edition, full queen! Best part of whole unit!!😀

fifth fiver

Good luck in your search. We are on our fifth fiver and finally found one that suits us. We have a Sandpiper by Forest River and we love most things about it. Saying that.....we have been thinking along the lines of a diesel pusher..never satisfied completely I guess.

My wife and I have been trailering since 1970, we prefer the TT over the 5th wheel or motor home. The difference between the TT & 5th wheel is storage space. Most TT's don't have much storage space outside for "stuff". Our latest model is a 2013 Rockwood 8315BSS. It has plenty of ext. storage, but the 2015 has been changed, they dropped the storage at the rear under the closet. We like a front kitchen where we can see what is going on. If you have the kitchen etc. in the rear of the coach, a lot of times you are backed into the woods and can't see what's going on.

Good luck with your search.
