Joined thread today- stalked for the past year

I've been reading this forum for the past year to absorb as much information about fifth wheels and all that pertains to owning one. We currently have a 2014 24 foot travel trailer Viewfinder which has served us well. We just ordered a 2018 Cardinal 3250rl that should arrive by the end of September. My wife and I are planning on retiring in two years then heading out for a 2-3 month trip out west. I have appreciated the knowledge some of you guys have, and that you are willing to help others with issues. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions when the new camper arrives.

Welcome from upstate NY. Congrats on the new 5er! One thing you will want to know is that a 5er will turn a lot quicker than a TT, meaning it will track well inside the TV on a tight turn. Swing it wide my friend, God Bless.
