Hi everyone, I have just bought a new f250 diesel and I am looking for a 5th wheel camper. Most reviews for the brands that I have been looking at are described as junk. What is the best brand for quality? Recommendations anyone?

Grand Design Reflection - 303RLS or 337RLS

They're all junk, just some more than others. IMO, quality control is the biggest issue and service after the sale. I needed repairs for my rig and had to schedule two months out, sales PDI are the priority.

Best 5th wheel brands ??? Thats like asking which is the best brand truck which of course will be the brand I own type answers.
There are no best brands as every brand that will be mentioned will have someone who had issues with it.

I would search each 5th wheel mfg and look at their top line units.

I ain't the weight police but...the best assumed quality 5th wheels are not able to be towed with a F250. I'm thinking DRV off the top of my head. Not sure if you could even tow a Solitude and be within 3/4 ton numbers.
Yeah they're all junk.
My perception is Northwoods has a decent reputation but I don't think there are many dealers in Texas.

And come with a quality price that a lot of people are not willing to pay.

Ask the question, how good a quality camper can I get for a certain price range, and then you've got something to compare to. $86,000 for a Grand Design compared to $28,000 Crossroads!

How much does he OP want to spend. Then opinions can be realistically given.

Edit:
That's like asking the question, which is the best quality car you can buy? Well, there's a big difference here. A new Maserati compared to a new Chevy Sonic are worlds apart in quality. Of course the Maserati is in another universe compared to the Sonic. But the new Maserati sells for $187,000 and the new Sonic sells for $20,000. How much are you wanting to pay for "best quality?"

Pick the design and style your wife likes the most and ensure your within the specs of your truck and buy that one. Be prepared to do work any unit you purchase.

The one I own, it’s paid for.....??

Look first at the frames of many to compare, then how the walls are made, compare components like converter/chargers, electronics, roof fans, etc. Pay little attention the glitz and marketing gimmicks.
