Viking 17fq

We have just purchased a viking 17fq , front walk around queen and love it. The bathroom has a sink with a mirrored medicine cabinet and plenty of counter space and storage. We have used it 4 times and will be going again the end of the month. We had a popup and now its so nice with the queen bed and nice bathroom.

Flipped the axle on ours today so we can run more readily available 14" tires. Really, really like the 17FQ, more than enough room and storage for just the two of us. Gotta love the walk around bed especially for middle of the night excursions.

Follow up- Ok I had bought a trailmanor last year and its ok, but the 17FQ would have been better for us... I contacted a dealer and there wiling to give me a good deal on a new one and I would only carry 2k...I was also looking at a R-pod 180.....

Like some more feed back on your experiance with the 17 FQ.

I just picked up a 2016 17FQ yesterday. Price was $10,995 at the RV Expo a couple of weeks ago, total with TT&L came to less than $12K.

Haven't been on a camping trip yet but it's been sitting in my driveway hooked up to power while we add TV and personal touches. I've noticed that it has the same cheap materials as RV's costing tens of thousands more

So far we are loving it but I'm concerned it might be a bit too much for my 2015 JKU to tow.

I was comparing the camper I have with the 17 FQ as far as GWVR Im good..I have a 2013 Kia Soreno 4x4 that can tow up to 5,000 lbs...
