No spring break for me. My colombus is in a permanent location like how a park model would be used. My version of a lake home.

Saw one at Timonium a few weeks back and at first thought WOW, but that did not last very long. Did not care for the black trim that much, I hate a vessel sink in any brand, and the drawers in the bedroom were so sloppy, I as a rep would have been embarrassed in the quality of the unit to be at a show. Plus the rear of the unit did not have a nice molded back cap like others in the price range and also a old style 4 inch bumper. Had high hopes but not what I excpected.

To each his own of course. I'm sure they will be happy with their purchase. Brings to mind an old saying though, "You won't miss what you never had." What are they missing? FROG of course, they won't be eligible to join.

Yes and that's what makes the world go round what one person does not
like someone else will.
I was waiting to see what line your dealership might pick up after Carrige went under to fit the high end 5th wheel I hope this was not their choice, anyway glad to hear they sell well for you just not what I am looking for.

No "high end" fifth wheel line right now for us.

We looked at the Lifestyles, but the prices are way high.....higher than the Carriages were, and they are essentially the same trailer.

Nothing really out there worth having as a high end unit right now.

We'll plug along with Alpine, Columbus, and Solitude....

Saw the Solitude at Burlingtons' Open House today. Didn't impress me that much. I'm not a fan of vessel sinks and the black in the kitchen didn't do anything for me. But that's just me. I'm sure some wouldn't like our choice in a 5er.

Ok will just keep watching to see if you do pick something up, I was very interested in Carrige so watching the Lifestyles to see how they do. Hope you have a busy summer.
