I will not say I'll not go back to FR. If I go bigger I may stay with Keystone as I cannot be happier with the Cougar. If we decide on a Class A FR will certainly be on the short list. No MH with 'Coachman' on the side will ever be considered though.

I think they all have their issues at some point or another just like the issues when ppl choose Ford, Dodge or GM ppl will remember bad experiences over good. I owned a Shasta, and now a Roo, both for me have been good FR trailers but based on my wants and layouts I am down to Crusader 315, Cougar 333mks, or Montana HC 305RL.

Now it is all about colors, used prices and best deal I can get. I now have experience in knowing what to look for in a used trailer so be sure to make sure I know there are no leaks and everything works or at least get the dealer to fix issues, if not move on and find another.

I appreciate all the feedback, as we have even looked at Coachmen, Heritage Glen, Wildcat, Heartland trailers but Crusader, Cougar, and Montana stand out for us. This trailer we will be keeping for many years so not going to rush this purchase.

Ok found my new 5th wheel, after looking at the Columbus 295, Crusader 315, Cougar 333mks, I have selected Montana High Country 305RL. We absolutely love this model just need to see if we can find one with options we want or just order a new one.

Great choice, wicked.
We love the High Country 5th wheels.
We've chosen the 293RK if we ever get a 5th wheel.

We had about the same floor plan in our Crusader. What I didn't like was if the site were tight when eat you looking into your neighbors site and always seemed like he was cooking something better then we did. I like have the majority of the windows on the passengers side looking into our camp site and not the neighbors. I like the 352RL floor plan much better. The Montana High Country is nice line of 5er and fit you truck nicely...

WE just looked at a Grand Design 321 RL-R and it's great floor plan. It has drop frame so the large front storage, 6 point leveling, and looks like a quality build. Dry weight 11600 and dry pin of 2490.
