We want to buy a 30 or 32 ft 5th wheel trailer with at least 2 slide outs. We are concerned with the quality of new trailers, so are willing to buy a used 5th wheel trailer that is considered a quality build. After 9 years we sold our 2010 Montana with the hope of buying another trailer that is smaller in length. Greatly appreciate any suggestions Rvers on this forum can suggest. Thank you.

I've got a KZ and am impressed with it, so far. It =is= a "post-Thor" build, so I can't compare to the "pre-Thor" models, but I've not any experience with them, so can't really compare. I was looking for a "light" model and got a Durango 1500 that's a few inches under 32' at 31'8". My #1 KZ choice was 31'11", but I didn't end up with it. KZ's also seem to hold their value a bit better if the used prices I was seeing a couple years ago were any indication, so that tells me that there's a demand for them. I'm active on the KZ Family Forum and there are very few "horror stories" though, like any brand, there are a few. KZ's customer support still remains some of the best in the industry, as well.

My KZ held it's value nicely.... I Got top dollar for trade, AND it sold from the dealer in less than 1 week... Mine was a 2008 Montego Bay fifth wheel at 38'.. AND ( at least for me ) the manufacturer was awesome to work with.

This is likely you best buy if it suits your family. They are superb fifth wheels, I owned one for several years.

Triple E Topaz enjoy

That model is the FS306RL and is here... be sure to look at the fifth wheel section. FS306RL

I would look at Artic Fox, they make a nice short 5er with a decent floor plan and quality.

I wanted under 30' and am glad we didn't go bigger.

We were very interested in Outdoor RV and Northwood rigs but went Grand Design. I'm happy to go into more details if you want.

We've had a good experience with our Grand Design Reflection 303RLS. We've owned it for 5 years, towed for over 26k, and have only had minor issues.

I like the looks of the Grand Design but I don't know about the frames and running gear, maybe someone can enlighten me.

To me the most important things are stuff you don't see. Wiring plumbing, frames, axles along with the fit and finish.

Lippert frames and Dexter axles. Basically the industry standard.

Love our 303. Lives much bigger than it is. Well laid out.

I’m not sure how old you are willing to go, but a great Canadian manufacturer was General Coach who made Citation Supreme and Corsair Excella fifth wheels. They are very well built with heavy duty frames and running gear and are 4 season units with a complete real winter package. We are on our second General Coach trailer and are very happy with it. Unfortunately they went out of business in 2009 so the newest ones are 10 years old, but we have seen many well kept ones for sale on Kijiji and Craigslist.
