Finally!

Today we took the plunge and ordered a 2014 Trilogy 3650RL , we had been trying to sell our 2005 class A Winnebago Adventurer without much luck so we traded it in ,we have been working with Colerain RV in Ohio, they seem to be pretty good at this point , we will see how they do when we take delivery sometime in July

We LOVE it! And have had no major issues (mostly user errors), other than dealership problems. It's really too bad that FR or Dynamax doesn't make their dealerships go through some training. Perhaps if they did there would be far fewer issues ... not that there are many to begin with ... but our dealership didn't seem to know the product at all. We dealt with John Armstrong to solve our issues. He was most helpful.

Thanks Doogie ! We can hardly wait to pick her up ! Looks like we are planning to do this in July as it is hard for the DW to arrange time off on short notice we plan to make it a vacation / shakedown trip not far from the dealer to be sure there are no issues since the dealer is about 9 hrs away from home.
We loved the Trilogy when we first saw it at the Hershey Pa. show in Sept 2012 , but we didn't care for the factory rep who was there that day, he couldn't seem to answer some of our questions (maybe a new guy?) and we kind of wrote the Trilogy off, and we concentrated on a DRV, but I kept finding myself going back to the Trilogy, it had all we wanted and I like the DRV but I couldn't get past the I will call it gaudy patterns that they use, also The DRV has things I didn't want like a dishwasher and garbage disposal amongst other things, and things and then there were things that we wanted that added to the cost that are standard on the Trilogy.
Drv builds a good rig but it didn't make a good fit for us and we couldn't justify an extra $20 to $30K in cost.

We are using the B&W companion hitch. Seems to pull very smooth.

But the Companion only has an 18K capacity , correct? I like the Companion but GVCW is close to maxed , does that really matter though?

Defiant,

It is close to max but I am still under the max weight by a little bit. It pulls so well that I hate to change hitches but I may look into it if I add more cargo weight. I had this hitch with my last fiver as well and really like it.
