Grand design, better quality control, better materials, better warranty and good follow up.

agree with Ron... With a fifth wheel in that size range, a 3rd AC with power management is 100% awesome on those hot summer days.

My 2016 did not have 3, my 2020 does, what a difference ! !!


I am guessing with the higher humidity on your side of the Country the 3 AC's would be even more appreciated.

We have been in days of 113 temps and very comfortable in the Palm Springs, CA area.


yea, it's normal to be in upper 80-90% + humidity with high temps... makes for a sauna feel

I don't know anything about Keystone or Jayco.
I've owned 2 KZ units and very happy with both, minor items but not a big deal.
A friend has a G.D. and he's very happy with it as well.
For what it's worth I saw that 386FLF at the Cal. Speedway RV show a few months back. Very nice rig."BIG". Better have a big truck to pull it.
Pricing seem about what they were asking on signs, I bet you can get them in the high mid $60's.
Good luck.It's only money.

"The Hoff":

Looks like 12 replies (this should be #13).

4 - were regarding the A/C you should choose (or agreeing with a previous post)

2 - were posters surprised (or shocked) at the cost of the units.

1 - whichever the DW likes best.

So that leaves five (5) suggestions.

So, you should be able to make a clear-cut, well informed decision!..[emoticon]

IMO -
Skip the internet forum/s - Do your own research -
decide what *YOU* (and, of course the DW) prefer...[emoticon]

Happy hunting & spending.

It all depends upon the insulation/windows, ect. We spent a couple of August days in Mesa, Az. , with only one AC.....running on a 20 amp extension cord, awaiting some repairs. While “not” real comfortable, it was quite tolerable/doable. Though, ours is only 39 feet in length, maybe if ours was larger larger, that second AC would have been necessary! memtb

MSRP's over $120K for a mid-line 5er is out of this world. Why don't you look for a higher end used 5er? Much better value for your money.
