All right!!! Congratulations on your new fifth wheel. The open floor plan of the 29RE and 29RL along with the opposing slides really make the units look larger than they really are.

The 29RL we have coming should look something like this photo.

Very nice! I really like this floorplan as both the couch and the recliners face the TV. A lot of the other floorplans have the TV at right angles to the seating.

Oakman...you realize of course, that you've now given up your rights as the official Wildcat greeter on the forum!

Oh no Dave, NUTZ again. I'm giving up all this seniority in the Wildcat forum and I'll be at the lowly bottom of the totem pole on the Cedar Creek forum. The bad news just keeps on coming.

The location of the TV is one of the reasons we picked the rear lounge. We loved the rear kitchen in our Wildcat but we were tired of sitting at a right angle to the television.

Yes the slides are what sold us on it. We have a TT now with a small slide and couldn't believe the difference the opposing slides make. Pics look great-It was hard deciding which one I liked the best. I went with a bit darker colors because hubby is not to good on wiping his feet Also considering a small freestanding island to add more counter space. Don't even have it and I'm modifying it -oh well. We're in the Springfield, IL area so not that far from you guys !

Oakman, we did the same thing in January. We had a Wildcat 29RLBS, went to the RV show in Huntsville with a group of friends and traded for a 29RE. The fridge is a pain, but fortunately you can set the valves on the Silverback to only open the slides you want. So we will keep the valves set to only open the dinning slide. That way we will be able to step in the door, open the front slide and have access to the fridge and cabinets for snacks and drinks.

We cannot tell any difference towing the Silverback versus the Wildcat with our F250. The longer SB actually backs better than the WC. It does not tend to oversteer when backing as easily as the WC. We had the initial 140 mile drive home, so I had a long time to get familiar with her and loved the results. The longer chassis and slightly heavier weight actually made for a smoother ride. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with your towing experience.

We love the room in the SB, especially in the bedroom. It will be nice to be able to get in and out of bed without having to turn sideways and scoot along the wall.

We are going on our maiden voyage this weekend if the weather will cooperate.

That's tight! I also like the arched ceiling in the slide areas!

Thanks for your post PapaSmurf. I've been wondering how the F250 would handle with the heavier and longer trailer. You've put my mind at ease.

One reason we went with the rear lounge was the fact that the fridge was accessible with the slides closed. Have fun on your maiden voyage PapaSmurf.
