On the verge of 5th wheeling...

Hi all,

My wife started bugging me for a 5th wheel so we can travel and visit all the cool places. We aren't sure what we want exactly so we rented a 2015 Forest River Sierra from RVShare.com this past weekend. We really liked it but got in a fight with a tree and needed some recommendations on patching the roof edge. This site seemed like the most obvious place to get recommendations for this particular trailer.

I have a 2000 Ford F-350 I recently equipped with a B&W turnover ball gooseneck hitch. I found a used Andersen Ultimate 5th wheel connection on the local classifies I am using with it. It seemed to work well. The Andersen is a little inconvenient to use with a rental because I had to install/remove the king pin adapter.

Here is a photo of our very first ever 5th wheel trip to Palisade State Park in Utah. Hopefully soon we will be new owners!!
