5th wheel with bath and !/2, not a toy hauler?

What manufacturer makes a good quality fifth wheel with a bath and a half bath that is not a toy hauler or garage model and has a fiberglass roof and is generator prepared?
Thanks,
Lee

The only one I've seen is the DRV Manhattan model - 43' model. It is expensive and heavy. Built for a family who wants to full time. Actually it is two full baths but they will build any way you want, so if you want a 1/2 bath they will do that and make a bigger closet. Takes deep pockets and a 450 truck at least.

If your budget for the trailer is $75k or more, then Excel will custom-build you a high-quality 5er to your specs, with your floor plan and with 1.5 or two baths.

And as mentioned, DRV (Mobile Suites) will probably modify one of their existing floorplans to suit your needs. Or the 43' "Manhattan" floorplan may be right down your alley.

New Horizons custom builds as well.
Look at some of the bunkhouse models that are bigger.
I want to say Heartland has bath and 1/2 models in the bigger 5'ers

I have a Cougar 293SAB and it's a bath and half. Mine isn't prepped for generator but was told it could be ordered that way.

Both of those fail the roof test. They both have "rubber" roofs, and the OP asked for fiberglass roof. Rubber membrane roof is the industry standard for popular-priced RV trailers, so you probably won't find a fiberglass roof without moving up into the expensive luxury RV class.

However, my 13-year-old Keystone Sprinter 5er has the rubber roof, it's still in perfect shape after about 100,000 miles of being towed around the country, so I'm a happy camper with that roof.

I believe my sierra is rubber as well but reinforced to be a walk on roof
