We are researching fifth wheels with residential refrigerators. We found a lot of info about Trilogy, Mobil Suites and Excel, but very little about the HR Presidential... probably because it hasn't been out very long. Just looking for feedback.

Interested what your research findings are so far between those you already have done. I would guess they all work about the same except for how many batteries will fit in the battery bay.

I think I saw a pure sine wave inverter in the Presidential.

Another new choice

Another one to look into would be the new Winnebago Destination 36RL. We previously had a Carriage Cameo 35SB3 and loved it, but sold a while back when we thought we were going to go a direction in life that made keeping the 5th wheel more of a hassle to maintain than to keep. Go to winnebagotowables.com to see the floorplan and pics.

Fast forward to today, and my wife found the new Winnebago and fell in love with it. This is the first time Winnebago designed their own higher end 5'er since acquiring the SunnyBrook company and from the looks of things, they definitely tried to put their normal Class A type touches on it. We went ahead and took the plunge and bought one and will take delivery end of next week. I will post updates after we get into it and do the first shakedown run in it here in Colorado. Go to McClain's Rv Superstores Rockwall, Tx location website and you can see pics of the actual unit we purchased....they have more pics/info than Winnebago does on their site.

We saw the Presidential and it looks like it will be a really good unit also. It is nerve racking buying the first generation of anything and I have a certain level of reservations about our purchase of the Destination....but someone has to do it, right?!! I feel good enough about it though and have confidence that we will be happy with the unit we bought.....more to come.

Can't help with the Presidential but we have had a couple of residential fridges, if that is one of your concerns. The first was in our motorhome and now in our Excel. Both were Samsung RF197's which is what appears to be in mcumbie's new Winnie, and, by the way, is a very nice looking fifth wheel. The Samsung's are very efficient and will tolerate a modified sine wave inverter very well. We have a pure 1000w in ours with 2 6 volt batteries. It will run all day while we are on the road with very little drop in voltage. The advantage, having owned both types of fridges, is the consistent temps you get with a residential, at least in our experience. If you are a hard core dry camper it might be more of an issue. We have an automatic transfer switch so when we disconnect from shore power the inverter kicks in so fast that there is no loss of power. When we reconnect the switch changes back to shore power. I had to add that myself but it is a nice feature to have.
