Another question is....is there a similar DRV quality build in a bit shorter 5th wheel. Were very concerned about the rear end clearance in getting a 36 or 38 footer on the property. Thanks again.

When was DRV bought out by Thor? Im assuming consensus is a drop in quality at that time?


We left NW WA 1/1/15 to travel to Rolling Retreats in Elk City, OK to order our current DRV. Along the way we heard that Thor just purchased DRV. We decided it would not make any difference and proceeded with the order.

Thanks. From just observation the Grand Junction looks ok. Its been well maintained. But i can tell the materials are a bit better in the DRV.


Simply compare the frames. Mine on the assembly line. Two 2x6 and one 2x3 tubes stacked and welded to make a 15" tall boxed frame.

DRV makes a 32' model.
