The time has come to upgrade from our current bumper pull to a larger 5th wheel.

As you can see in my signature we currently have a 26ft Attitude with no slides. On the new rig we want:

5th wheel
Walk around Queen/King bed
12ft min garage with Queen beds
At least 2 slides
Access to the bedroom, bathroom & fridge with the slides in
Hoping to stay between 30-38 feet.

Thanks for the suggestions, hoping it will save us time when we go window shopping!

Best thing to do is to wander dealer lots or visit an RV show.

X2 ^^. While you're doing that, keep in mind the rear axle capacity of your 2500HD and use 23% of the fifth wheel's GVWR off the sticker for an estimated loaded pin weight - NOT the published pin weight from the manufacturer. Many fifth wheels in the range you are describing will have more pin weight that you can safely put on a 3/4-ton truck.

It's going to be tricky to fit everything you want into 30-38 feet.

WE just bought a used 2013 Raptor 310TS, which would fit your description. It's 36.5 ft. with 3 slides, walk around king, and 10 ft. garage.

Grand Design Momentum 328M would fit your profile, except garage size.

Anything much smaller than 38 will likely have a garage that extends into the living area. This may/may not be a problem for you.

have you checked the puma 351thss, only 1 slide, but its a big slide (sofa and dinette) and weights are reasonable for a 3/4 ton. unfortunately its not a widebody which is a deal breaker for me.

Our Impact 351 fits all of your requirements except for the access... bedroom and bathroom aren't accessible with the bedroom slide closed. Comes in at 38'1". I'm not sure I've seen a hauler that would fit the access requirement.

Check out Dutchman Triton and XLR Nitros, both have models that fit the requirements except the slide part.

Also, nice to see other Central CA folks... I grew up in Visalia and went to Fresno State [emoticon]

Also check the new Jayco Talon lineup. I've got the 413 on order. Not sure about the frig access but the bedroom is fully accessible and it has a 13ft garage. They are a new line for 18 so there's not many out yet.
Two year warranty and structurally built the same as the Seismics only a watered down version, option wise.

It's easy to exceed the GVWR on 250/2500 diesel trucks when hitching up fifth wheel toy haulers.

I'd find it hard to believe you'll find a toy hauler in the size your looking for that you can tow with your truck and stay within the manuf ratings. Even the lighter ones at 30-34 ft are going to have a pin of 1800lbs or more which doesn't leave you much room for fuel, stuff or passengers. Looking up your truck I see it is only rated to tow 14K for a 5th wheel.
