Hope to keep the fiver to 29 ft - tough time here! Would like to keep the fiver to 2 years or newer, anyone out there have anything like this or can direct us?
Big issue here is what is your Tow Vehicle and will it be equiped to to a 5er at all?
New 150 class (1/2 Ton) Pickups can, with the correct packages, tow what used to be in the realm of 3/4-1 ton pickups! (EX: Our 2013 F150 SuperCrew with the HD Towing Package on it cal tow 11,800 with a 2,400 hitch weight!)
Now, assuming that your Tow Vehicle can yank the dang thing down the road ... Next step is talking about the 5er.
1st off: we have a Rockwood 8289WS 5er with the "classic" bedroom/bath over the box. We have not had any tripping problems or issues whatsoever in the middle of the night (unless you are worried about going down the steps for a midnight snack in the Galley
) In fact, if you "gotta go" at 2 AM, it is really (REALLY!) nice to have the bathroom 3 shuffle steps away (better 'n home! LOL)
I realize this post may not give you the information you were looking for but I wanted to assure you that - at least DW and I - have no tripping issues with the Bed/bath being located upstais (and, in fact, Rockwood was kind enough to provide a stai night light you can leave on in case you want to head downstairs in the middle of the night!
