Ernie,

I know you've already selected your specific model types, but I'd like to ask anyway, have you considered the 5er Front Living room models.

We have a Montana High Country with a front living room, and we absolutely love this arrangement. The bed room is in the back, living room above the hitch over-hang. There's no walls between the living room area and the kitchen area. The heat difference between the upper level and the lower level is not noticeable at all, and there is ample room in the living room area for 6 people to sit comfortable.

Ours is the Montana High Country 375FL, which has the second door on the back side of the trailer. There is no island in the kitchen, which makes everything accessible when all the slides are in.

Just asking, if you haven't considered a front living model, you might want to check them out before making a final decision.

Not entirely true. We've negotiated 28 - 30% off MSRP on both our Grand Design fifth wheels.

The dealer we are looking at discounts Grand Design 30% without negotiation. New 2020 310GK $64k

There is definitely plenty of room for discounts on these.

Thanks for the input. Went and tried to make the deal,but couldn't come together on a trade agreement. 5K apart on the Montana, and 10K on the Solitude. Think we'll check out a bighorn next week.

This IS probably the best time for a good deal. 3 years ago this week we made the deal on our rig. We were new to the game and got 34% off plus almost half off the price of our Demco autoslide hitch with puck adapter without hardly trying. It was a leftover trailer and I probably could've done a little better with some effort.

You don’t indicate a need to upgrade. If money is no object...no, the thrifty people I know that are RICH don’t spend without a need.

Why is the OP required to indicate a "need"? Why can't you just give your opinion on the two models indicated in the post instead of posting some sort of BS reply?

Don't be afraid to shop outside your "local" area. Find a dealer, wherever, who will beat the local "deal", and show the local guys a valid quote and see if they'll do better. Be =serious= if they waffle and walk out and be prepared to take the other deal. Now, if your local dealer will come close, enough so that the travel would make the "far" deal a near-wash, then make the local deal. Personally, I was willing to go cross-country to get a good price. In the end, didn't need to.
