[QUOTE=guerhi;654275]My husband and I have been looking to upgrade from our TT to a 5th wheel as well. I am really interested in the 31RK from the pictures and information that I have found online. My problem is living in New Mexico I havenít found any close enough to take a look at in person. I am a little nervous about purchasing a 5th wheel without actually seeing it.
I have never made a major purchase I did not see. There are a heck of a lot more important things to consider, other than, it looks great, before plunking your hard earned money down and hoping for the best. We spent 2 hours inside, outside, full walkthrough of a 2014 33rl new at a show (unit was sold) before placing a $2000 build to order deposit. Potentially losing a couple of grand is not insane if the unit comes in and it has unexplained issues. These units come with flaws. Some, not ours, are serious. Suspension, hitch issues, brakes, electrical, and on and on. Once you stroke that final payment, that thing is YOURS and unless a miracle, only a high priced lawyer "may" get you out.
Spend 2 days and go to Arizona and scope dealers inventories before you leave home. There are 9 gabillion rv's across the border from you. Get brochures and look at the specs, insulation, etc. It's a process. We changed our minds at least several times before making the choice for a 2015 33rl build.
