If money is a problem, you would do well to look at some used high end units. The depreciation on a new unit is really pretty steep. It is not hard to find a clean 2 to 4 year old unit that is high end and better built than the entry level units.

Probably get flamed, but here goes. Challenger is more of an entry level fifth wheel compared to ones in the same family like Everest and Montana. Not too sure what the differences are, but I would be suspicious of things like insulation. Depending on your life style it could be a nice unit or it could be a real headache. Might want to consider more up scale units for full timing.
