Dutchmen Denali fifth wheel

We have found a near new condition Dutchmen Denali 2008 fifth wheel for sale. It is the 31RGBS-M5. I hadn't heard of it and wonder if anyone has experiences to share: likes, dislikes, quality of construction, etc., etc.,

I had a dutchmen once...not that bad but really depends in what and how often you will use it. I saw a Dutchmen banner (advertisement) somewhere recently that states they provide quality entry level TT and 5ers. So at that i guess its ok....but its entry level thus it will be lighter and more cheaply made imho

My wife and I own one. It is a good 5th Wheel. We love the sort of separation of the living area and the kitchen. Over all a 1-10 scale I would give it an 8. It is great to pull. I have a 2500 HD Dodge Diesel and I hardly know it is there, except when it is windy. But even then it pulls great. The reason for the 8 of 10 rating is the fact that the so called wood trim in the RV is grey cardboard laminated. It really fooled me until our grandson left the refrigerator door cracked open and a week later when I found it the trim under it had swelled up half the size again as to what it was. I hope this helps.
God Bless

We sold our '07 Denali 26FB last year...man we loved that trailer! Granted - not a 5er, but Denali put the same built quality in all the models from my point of view.

Our TT was HEAVY (allowed me to upgrade the tow to a Dodge3500 DWR) with lots of hardwood, large slide for the couch/dinette, and the full Arctic Pack and it was warm in the winter and cool in the summer! The "truss beam" roof was very strong too with not 1 complaint when I walked on it for installing/removing the cover.

We sold it to a couple who were gonna live in it fulltime (economy issues and all) and we had no reservations about them being very comfortable.

If there was a Denali Motorhome, I would have looked for one when we upgraded.

We did change the original mattress - but that's common in many rigs.

Good luck!!
