We had a 2004 WildCat - a very middle of the road grade of TT that we traded in on our current Arctic Fox.
Much of the quality of the Wildcat was actually a lot better. the "house" frame was far superior although the chassis frame was just OK. Build quality throughout was better and I believe more attention was paid to the work done.

Another poster on here commented to me that RV built before and after the recession are totally different animals and I believe that is a valid point.

Still happy with my 2002 Gulf Stream Sea Hawk. Bought it new and has many miles on it. Storing it in doors helps.

What are the best websites to use to find the value of an older 5th wheel? Anything better then KBB?

We would still be using our 2005 Wildcat 5er if not for the need to have another bunk. We even modified that one to add the third bunk, but it was only a bandaid. It was a solid unit. Sold to a friend who still uses it and loves it. No leaks, well built, quiet A/C, all systems work.

I have a 2004 Fleetwood 29BH that has served me well over the years. Never any major problems - only routine maintenance needed. I also bought a 2005 Forest River Wildcat last summer for $1000. The original owner said the slide was messed up and he didn't want to mess with it. A $3 o-ring, some hydraulic oil, and a new set of tires later and I have a gorgeous 28RK. It looks new on the inside and out. I use one for my fly fishing HQ in northern Michigan and the other on my summer get-away/deer hunting property on the west side of the state.
