Redwood 5th wheel/ worth the $

Looking at a 2020 RW3901WB. When best quality 5th wheel is Googled the Redwood's are in a lot of the results. Will be traveling in this Coach about 4 months a year for the next 4 years. They look great and seem to be built well. I know there us no perfect unit but I we are going to put a substantial amount into our new Coach whatever brand. Thanks

So thatís a Keystone, right?
Have you asked this question on a Keystone forum? They would have more experience than members of the Forest River forum, I would think.

I didn't know for sure so I did a BING search for "redwood RW3901WB" and got entries saying Redwood plus at least one listing saying Keystone and one saying Thor Industries.

Thor owns Keystone, right?

We have looked at several Redwoods. Yep, they are very nice. They are also very heavy and expensive. Are they built any better than any other upper end brand? Not enough that I could tell. Take off a few access panels and it's amazing how much alike they all are

We looked at both between the Redwood and Landmark. We bought a Landmark, better finishes, higher quality can the dealer was discounting what we purchases significantly more too plus game us what we paid for the Rockwood too!

Redwood is a brand of Crossroads RV, which is a division of Thor Industries, the largest RV company in the world.
Since it's not a product of Forest River, you may not get the information you're looking for. I've never seen a member here, who owned a Redwood trailer since nearly all here own FR products.

If looking at a Redwood I would suggest also looking at the River Stone line ,they offer the new Reserve line plus the regular River Stone and the Legacy, also the Cedar Creek Champagne would compare to the Redwood

As long as you are considering brands outside of Forest River you should look at both Vanleigh and Alliance RV.

X2. I am actually impressed with Vanleigh. Of course, they are a tad bit pricier.
