Got our New 5er

We're doing the happy dance!

We finally found an awesome 5th wheel AND got a great deal AND got the OK from the bank AND signed papers!


We got a 2013 DRV Tradition 380 RES. It's gorgeous. They are adding the options we wanted and we will pick it up in about a week. It's only a 4 hour drive to the dealer so I won't have to take any vacation time to go and fetch her. I'm so glad the RV shopping is done.


Thanks to everyone for all the answers to our questions and listening to our woes.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Congrats, and if you've never pulled a 5er before, you are going to love how stable they are to tow.

fotoman54, I guess if you are going to go slumming, that will have to do. Does not look bad for "Trailer Trash".
