The 253 FBS is a great place to start if 5th trailer camping is new to you, our first camping experience was in a Palomino Puma. But more important is the dealer you buy it from. New or used you will need maintenence support. Either parts, service or warranty work will be in your future, so if buying from a private seller you still need to develop a rapport with a credible Forest River dealer, it will greatly enhance your camping experience. Read everything on the FRF and get familiar with the unit inside & out. Enjoy traveling to meet other campers and you'll soon find your favorite campfire. Go for it!
