Which model fifth wheel?

Hello,

We are searching for our fifth wheel in the 26 to 29 ft range. We would like help searching for a fiver that has no steps between the bathroom and the bed, basically, around the bed. I have searched for this size fiver with a bedroom slide with very little success!



Thank you for your advice and suggestions!

We really like our 12 Flagstaff 8528RKWS with the bath and bedroom on the same level.

Surveyor is a bit bigger than you said you're looking at. 32'10" but has the bathroom and bedroom on the same level. Good luck on your search.

Not sure about all FW's , but don't most (if not all) FW's have the bedroom and at least one bathroom on the same level - same level being the front portion above the pin box at the top of the stairs?

Our Silverback 29 RK did in addition to the front closet.

Wow thatís a tough order. A fifth wheel in the 26 to 29 foot range with a bedroom slideout and the bathroom on the same level. Not much out there.

Rockwood Signature Ultra-Lite model 8265WS
Flagstaff Classic Superlite model 8524RLWS
The Sabre Silhouette has a model that is at tad over 30 feet that looks nice. Model 281RLDS.

They are very rare. Most have the bedroom & a bathroom over the pin box.
I've never seen one to be honest especially in the size the OP stated.

One other thing - don't be mislead by the model number being the actual length of the FW.

For example, our Silverback 29 RK was actually 34 feet long, not 29.

Many thanks for these replies! We don't care where the bathroom is - just don't want to trip in the nighttime.

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?

Blessings!
