I'm somewhat confused, they eliminated the Trilogy line stating that the Cardinal was remaining as the flagship model. Then they come out with this one?

Nice looking but that trailer cost more than my truck and trailer combined even after the customary 20-30% off msrp sales price.

The trailer looks pretty nice dblr! I looked at DR Suites and found the fit and finish on my $40 K Rockwood much better. It will be nice to see of they have one at the Toronto Fall RV show this weekend.

Kansas RV Center was the manufacturer of the Hitch Hiker and Hitch Hiker 2 5th wheels, which were once competitors for Mobile Suites. A lot of full-timers bought Hitch Hikers before the recession because they were well-insulated, 4-season units that could still be towed with a heavy-duty diesel pickup. Maybe the River Stones are just renamed Hitch Hikers built in that same plant or the same designs moved to a plant in Indiana. Guess we'll find out.
