Fleetwood Terry Quantum opinions?

I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this particular fifth wheel and what your advice and opinions are? I'm just looking for some input from the experts. As far as the pros and cons of the Quantum go. Also off the subject but would like to know, what is the difference between a 6 gallon hot water heater and a DSI 6 gallon water heater. Other than three letters. LOL. Thanks.

DSI = Direct Spark Ignition. There is no pilot light on this type Hot Water Heater. It ignites using electronic spark like most gas ranges do. The former in your query probably has a pilot light.

I have a Fleetwood Triumph trailer. As far as I can tell they are the same trailer with the same floor plans, just a name change and some option differences. This is my second 5th wheel and compared to my old Designer series Jayco this trailer is no where near as well built. For example, this trailer is longer and heavier then the Jayco but uses 6000 lb axles instead of Jaycos 7000lbs axles and the Lippert frame Fleetwood uses has already torn the fiberglass skin in the corner of the bedroom slide. It's 2 years old. I called Fleetwood but they say talk to Lippert. Lippert says their 5 year warranty is not transferable. I bought the trailer used.

I never had any problems with my Jayco and am rather sorry I traded it for this trailer. I think if I had to do it over I would stay away from anything Fleetwood builds. Look towards a smaller more customer friendly manufacturer.
