I'm going to have to double check , but what your looking at may have been one of the last Glendale's produced. Although it may be an orphan, if the price is right, because all the major component manufacturers are still in business; not too much of an issue.
If , I'm thinking of the right RV, ( DW and I looked at Glendale when we still had 5ers) DW though that all the stairs up to the bedroom would become an issue, particularly coming down at night, to use the ladies room.
I'll see if I can confirm these thoughts with an internet search.

EDIT: Looks like from what I've found that Jan. 2010 was the shut down. So I was a couple of years off. DW confirms stairs were her issue, along with the slide had to be out, to load the fridge in the one we were looking at.

Check the storage in the underbelly. As I recall this was just one of my objections to these. It is an interesting looking design. Heartland bought the rights to the Glendale designs but only produced them for a couple of years.

I quizzed a fellow who has owned one for years.
Biggest thing as a problem for him is you have to have, support under the pin for stability, because the bedroom is so far forward of the landing legs.

If your model has the kitchen in a slide out there is a potential design issue with the refrigerator installation. I have a customer with a Titanium unit, refrig in the slide out. Prior to him bringing it to me has had several failed cooling units in the refrigerator and a constant battle with keeping the unit below 50 degrees.

So I pulled the top refrigerator vent in the slide out and it was very apparent why he has suffered thru multiple cooling unit failures and the inability to control the temp. Glendale has the refrigerator mounted WAY too high in the opening and the refrigerator condenser is located above the top of the vent which is preventing it from properly convecting the heat away from the condenser. In fact the bottom of the condenser is 2" above the top of the vent opening. There is simply nowhere for the heat to go. Since there is no way to lower the refrig nor change the upper vent location outside, I had to add 3-12vdc fans to the back of outer vent cover. He is now able to turn the temp to the middle setting and the fresh foods section hovers nicely around 35 degrees.

From my experience with my 30C which was based of the Titanium design, I LOVE the design. No issues with the step on the side of the bed. A tad small in the basement storage area, but not a deal breaker. Tows like a dream. I've read about needing to support the pin, but I've never noticed and bounce in the nose at all so haven't gone that route. For lots of info check out the Titanium Forum: http://www.titaniumrvowners.com/
