Suggestions on what?

Personally, I'd keep the Mobile Suites and the dog.

But seriously, not sure what you are asking for suggestions on. Where to winter and summer? Where ever you want.

We sold everything and hit the road 3 years ago. Personally I go to TX in the winter.

We are looking to update our 5th wheel and was wondering if it is best to go directly to the factory and order and if they have all the models to look at. I don't mind ordering what I want, but would need nice to have a visual. Also, is it best to sell the old 5th wheel, or is there places that would take a trade?

This is my first post so hopefully, I have done this right.

Welcome to the forum. Can't help you much, but you would be able to trade, but lose money. Wouldn't get as much in trade as you could selling it outright. Although it could take a lot of time to sell it.

You have done it well. Many or most dealers will take trades but as you might guess you won't get what you think it's worth. Also some will sell yours on consignment. Don't know the answer to your first question about dealing directly with the manufacturer.

Not sure about other manufacturers, but NuWa recently instituted a factory direct sales program. They're located in Kansas and make a very solid rig.
