Montana, Jayco North Point and Pinnacle we didn't care for.
Are there any units I am missing?
I like the look of full body paint. Keeping it indoors is it a waste of money?
What do I need to know that I don't see walking in the unit?
How important is buying local? We have a local dealer with probably 600 5vers but they have a horrible reputation for service after the sale. What if I have to drive 200 miles to buy from Mom and Pop because they have the unit?
Little background should it come up: Tow vehicle is 2015 Chevy 2500HD Duramax short bed 4x4. Unit is stored inside my 43' metal building. Not full timers. 2-3 two week trips a year.
good morning, my wife an I bought this same unit at the end of 15', it's a 16' model an so far we love it, it was a big step up from our tt which was a rockwood. I also have a Chevrolet 2500hd my truck has the exhaust braking I did put the timbren suspension kit on it but have no problem pulling or stopping the unit. I bought the b&w slider fifth wheel system but so far have not had to side it back an I put it in some really tight turns just to see what my limits are.
