We have a crossroads cruiser 26 rk. All aluminum frame all sides. We ordered it with gel coat fiberglass, thermopane windows, extra insul. Improved suspension. Pulls real smooth, no crosswind problems. Has over 4000 pd. CCC. Comes with trailer hitch suitable for pulling tandem, boat, utility trailer whatever up to 3k pds.
Only bad thing is standard Chinese tires should be avoided. Ordered right this is a winner

If you are going to actually travel 10k per yr. or more than a 5ver can't be beat. With a MH you are limited as to where you can get it worked on. A pickup can be worked on anywhere and you aren't kept out of your home while your drivetrain is being worked on. I've had both and I'll stay with my GMC 2500 and mid-profile 5ver w/no bed slide. That makes your pin weight much less. Good luck
