Switching from Class A to 5th wheel

Having been on the road for 20 years, we never considered a 5th wheel - until my wife saw a residential refrigerator in a 39' Cardinal!!!

There are different Cardinal floor plans as well as several different Forest River 5th wheel lines. What models in the Forest River line have that option?

Be sure not to let her look at a PrimeTime Sanibel 3501. She won't accept anything else after that.

My only reason to switch from trailer to class A is to have better gas mileage with a toad. As of now I go from 9 towing to 13 normal. If I drove a class A, I could get 6mpg or better class A and maybe up to 33mpg exploring(could even go electric). My guess is if you look around you can get anything you want in a 5th –wheel or classA.
