What Fifth Wheel do you own? Base on what you know today, would you recommend it to your best friend? If you were to buy a new one, what brand and model?

Thanks

What are you going to haul.

WE love our 2016 380TH Grand Design.

I (2-10-05) bought a 2002 F350 CC SWD PSD and a new 2003 Citation 10'8. I have been a tent camper all my life. I wanted more comfort while camping and CraterLake Ski Patrol.
It's time for more space. I purchased a 2016 Grand Design 380TH as of 10-29-2015.

Voltage 3950. It had teething problems but, yes, I'd recommend it.

We love our Crossroads Elevation. I don't think they make them anymore, but maybe they'll spin up their production again someday.

It's a very comfortable home away from home. We've had it for three years now and still love it.

It took our moron dealers service center (Giant RV) 20 months to work through all of our warranty issues. We actually had better luck when we just hired a mobile tech to come out and spend a day working on the remaining items.

2017 Keystone Impact 351. I'd recommend it and the other models in this line (neighbor just bought a 361 after conferring with us). No camper is perfect, even brand new, but overall the only bigger issue we had was on our 2nd trip with it, the front AC stopped working and it's always a big long ordeal to get something like that replaced, because the dealer has to contact Keystone, then Keystone has to contact the manufacturer of the AC, and then decide if they're going to cover it, etc etc. But that will happen with any camper that has an issue like that.

We have also enlisted a mobile tech to just come to the house. The dealer we bought from is fine (and our purchase experience there was great), but they're just so backed up so even minor repairs take weeks and they're about a 25 minute drive away, it ends up just being easier for us to pay the mobile guy to do it when it comes to the little stuff that's a bit too hard to do with our skill set, but also isn't related to a major component. Like, when we had him come out to winterize it for us, we also had him repair the rubber flashing that's up by the roof that we think got caught on a tree so it was a bit messed up. We could attempt that ourselves but really, we're not super handy beyond the basics so it was easier to just have him do it while he was there. And again, that's an issue that could happen to anybody on any camper.

I can't think of anything else we'd buy (unless we decided to go smaller again), other than a Grand Design. We considered those the first time around as well, but we don't use it enough to justify the extra cost.

2018 Fuzion 427. Two trips so far and we love it. Currently at the dealer for minor warranty issues. This is our second Fuzion so yes I'd recommend them.

We have a 2018 KZ Sportsmen Sportster 311TH10 and love it. We wanted a relatively small and light 5er toy hauler. It has a separate 10' garage and a usable slide in the living area. GVWR is around 11,000 lb which makes it one of the lighter 5th wheel toy haulers with those features. We've done several months in it over the last 2 years and found no significant problems.

OG Weekend Warrior.
I wouldn't get a new one as no one offers 21' of open cargo anymore it seems.
Everyone has garage's now.
That doesn't work for what I haul.

2017 Spartan 1245 by Prime Time. I bought it new this past March. I would recommend it again.

If I were buying new, I have no idea. Floorplan is a huge consideration for us and I just haven't found what I'm looking for most of the time.
