Sub 30' custom fifthwheel

Does New Horizons build sub 30' custon fifth wheel trailers any more? I currently full time in a 2004 28' New Horizons Fifth Wheel (my second New Horizons fifth wheel) and want to replace it. We like to stay in Forest Service campgrounds and a 43' Majestic won't fit.

Building a luxury coach takes a certain amount of space and that minimum threshold appears to be about 32'. I kept the floor plan jpg's of the old Excel 26 and 28 RT models that were ideal for national forest camping, but there seems not enough interest in it to pay a design team to make it a cookie cutter design.

We miss our old 28RGO and some of the fun places we took it, when we went to our (33RSE) 35' model we had to quit camp hosting in some of our favorite places as it would not fit. Our current 23' TT keeps us enjoying the NFS until we figure out our next move when we go full-timing again.

We are more into quality adventure than we are into luxury accommodations, albeit we are not as young anymore but still like our scenery. There is no right or wrong, but our favorite NFS campground is just a stone throw from one of our gold claims and has a sign that says maximum RV size 30' due to the tight corners with 26-28' gives breathing room. The mass produced 5W's in the 26-30' range are pure junk as I see them all of the time at consignment sales nearby to our campground.

Unless you can make a 32' FP work for you, you will have to keep looking for that niche market of quality 5W's in the 28' range that used to be commonplace 18 years ago.

Best of luck on your search!

Ask.... The nice thing about NH is that a challenge is usually accepted!
If by chance the answer is no, call Spacecraft.
