I am in the process of picking up a new 14 3850rl in silver. Am very excited but not as much as the Mrs. Pulling with a F350 and this is our first 5er. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks

Take it slow and easy practice a lot. I tow with a Kenilworth because I want the comfort and stopping ability.

Congratulations! We have the same model but in saddle. The only thing more exciting than the anticipation is actually getting your hands on it. We love ours. We've had a few minor issues but nothing we couldn't take care of ourselves. The hunt for the valve on the large propane tank was a challenge. The propane delivery guy finally found the thumb screw and we're good to go. The other thing was the anode in the water heater wasn't installed properly causing what we thought was a major leak. Troubleshooting and this forum took care of that. Happy camping and welcome.

Re the changes for 2015. I am wondering if the straight sides on the 2015 models improve the guttering. I have noticed that the condensation runoff from the AC units trickles down the side walls of my 36RE. I imagine that rain water will do the same.

I went to RVDrivingSchool.com. 8 hours of actual road training. My husband was offered to ride along and he learned a lot as well even though he has been driving rigs for 7 years. I'm comfortable driving our truck and rig now. Best investment I've ever made!

We looked at new 2014's and 2015's along with Redwoods and Mobile Suites. I really wanted the reputation of the Mobile Suites but couldn't find a floor plan we liked. Looking at the Redwoods versus the Trilogy had us liking the Trilogy much better and it was the 2015 that had the floor plan we liked.

We have a BriteTEK roof with a 12 yr warranty that only requires regular washing and we had the same roof on our Newmar Mountain Aire motor home and were very pleased with it.

We've been in the Trilogy now for about six months and absolutely love it. We've been in cold and hot weather and the insulation seems comparable to the Mountain Aire. We did get the black color that nearly everyone does a double take on and with the third AC the 43 foot fiver is very comfortable in 90 degree weather. Our Trilogy may not be up to the standards of some but we are very happy with our decision. Unfortunately it seems as if the few 2014's and 2015's left are the last that will be built. We're very happy to have grabbed one.

I second StoneyG on the BrighTek roof. That is what our 2014 37BH has and we stay in a park where there are pine needles constantly falling on our roof. Our neighbors have a different kind of roof and getting the needle residue off ended up costing them $500 to have someone come spend hours working on it. I just get on the roof with some warm soapy car wash and a medium stiffness push brush and it comes right off. I would never want one of those super rubbery roofs like I see most of the fifth wheel and travel trailer RVs seem to have.
