5th wheel suggestions

We just sold our travel trailer and are looking for a fifth wheel! Major wants:
- bathroom not inside the master BR
- plenty of kitchen space, drawers! ( our tt had none!)
- recliners
- 1-3 slide outs
- truck rated for 16,000
- less than 40 ft
We love the keystone cougar 327 RES. still hoping to find it. Other suggestions?

We had two Cardinal 5th wheelers (2009-3100 and 2010-3150) and were very happy with them. FR has made some very nice upgrades and should be worth a look.

You didn't mention if you wanted a new or used Fifth Wheel, lol. Anyway check out the Jayco Eagle 28.5 RLS. Jayco makes good mid range Fifth Wheels, and good customer relations.
Jayco 2014.
Best of luck in your search.

Don't believe you posted what you will be using the unit for. Vacationing, snow birding, full time, etc. makes a difference

X2. How you plan to use the rig makes a huge difference on what should br recommended as well as what you expect to spend 5ers can range from 25k to 150k

I have different advice than most: My advice would find a dealer that you can deal with and has good reviews as to his business practices. Then I would see what 5er is on his lot and does this meet your needs. I would than go over the entire trailer with a find tooth comb checking that all items work correctly and do not need repair. I would also check the tires to insure there are no age cracks in them. I would have the dealer check the brakes and re-pack the wheel bearings on the trailer. Since you are thinking of buying used this is more important than the manufacture since any trailer can be abused by the previous owner.

At 39 ft the Cedar Creek 36CKTS would give you everything you're asking for.

I doubt you would find a used one but we have a solitude by grand design and it has everything you are looking for, ours is the 369RL model
