Anyone have any good ideas for the fresh water inlet? It's hard to tighten the hose with that fitting they have mounted in there. I thought about a quick disconnect type fitting but it would stick out past the cover/door. Any ideas yet?

I am also going to work on extending the low point drains this summer. They are nearly in the middle of the camper and you have to crawl under to open those valves, potentially getting wet in the process.

I put the "quick connects" on mine. Yes, it does stick out just a little but the convenience overrides that.


Put a connection on the tank flush fitting also.

SOLD! I am ordering those today! I did install the new latch and this time I used my dremel to grind the latch down a little.

Post New Vengeance 320A

My wife and I just purchased our fourth toy hauler. Hopefully this time we got it right. We bought a new 2016 Vengeance 320A fifth wheel. We have only had it a couple of weeks and took our maiden voyage to the GA Mountain BMW Motorcycle Rally in Hiawassee, GA this past weekend. I hauled three motorcycles and pulled it with my 2014 Ram 2500 crew cab p/u with a Cummins 6.7 turbo diesel. This is my first 5th wheel TH and I was really impressed with the way the trailer handled and the way my truck pulled it down the road and up the hills in the Smoky Mountains. This is also my first camper with slides. The 320A has 3 of them. I have read the other posts and my unit has some of the same issues as listed by others. Nothing too serious but things to get corrected. The bottom trim around the cabinet where the kitchen sink is located has some splits where staples were to close to the edge. The bathroom floor was soaking wet after every shower. I think the water is leaking between the shower doors and the shower tub. Silicone caulk should fix this. The bronze plating on the plastic shower head is bubbling up and will probably peel off soon. I wish Vengeance had put the better top hinge slam shut doors on all the outside access points. The side hinged double door units they use are kind of cheap to me. They are not water tight where the doors come together and the latches are sometimes hard to close. It is also aggravating to keep up with so many keys. Without locking the door is not secure and it is a pain to have to use a key every time you want to go in and out of the pass through storage area. Other than these small issues and my gripes we love the trailer. We did add a 3" topper to the mattress in the master BR and the mattress in the garage. I have not read all the info on the happy jack benches but hope there is a way to adjust the backs of the benches so they are further back. Currently the sitting area is too close to the edge of the bench and when you lean back your butt wants to slide too close to the edge of the seat. Any ideas on how the remedy this are welcomed. I want to add slide awnings on the two slides on the left side of the trailer and an awning over the rear porch area. Any suggestions on the best buys on these?
Thanks for letting me join this forum and share my thoughts. Looking forward to many helpful discussions and sharing experiences.

This my first Vengeance as well. I looked at many others with similar options and this one fit our budget. Granted I didn't get a few things like the generator and some came with a larger fresh water tank. This works for us and we love it so far! 7 times we have been out in it since we bought it last fall.

Pics of our new Vengeance 320A

I took these pics on the way to and at the BMW Motorcycle Rally this past weekend. I have been trying to bring my wife up to speed on how to set up and tear down so she can help me. She is anxious to learn and a quick study.

Mine didn't come with the ladder. I wish it had now.
