So far I haven't been in a 5r that has a rear kitchen, but I would like to see one to see if I like it.

One concern with rear bedroom/front living room 5th wheels. Steps..... every time you want to refill your coffee cup, use the bathroom, get a snack etc. you've got to go down the steps from LR to kitchen.

i suggest a vented dryer. the non vented units can add too much humidity to the coach.

After looking at the rear kitchen models TURBS posted I must say the mid-ship models seem to be more to my liking. The rear living area allows two seating areas and the entertainment center and possibly a nice view out the rear window. I definitely like the bedroom in the front, up the stairs for the very reason wbdavey speaks of and I never even considered the vented- non-vented dryer situation.

Thank you all. I am certainly closing in on my perfect fifth wheel if I go that route.

This is a great forum full of very knowledgeable people with that been-there-done-that mentality and willingness to pass it on. Someday I hope to be in that position.

The other great thing about the Crusader is the 'atrium' (with a total of 6 tall windows) along the side that contains the dining room and 2 loungers...also a large rear window!!

WE like ours a Columbus 370 FL for it's forward living room and a separate large kitchen were you enter from the front door. With 5 slides it has lots of room. Also has a back door for the master.

I have a 32ft toy hauler 5'er it is the 2nd 5'er for me. I have had slide in pick up camper, a motor home, and I like 5'er better. you have your run around vehicle (You do not have to trail a car behind) With the toy hauler you can have a toy and some storage. If you are looking at a large 5'er I would look at a one ton truck with a diesel (mine is a daully,) I have had the gas and it did not have the power to pull the 5'er very good.
