I have a Grand Design 5th wheel, a Reflection 303RLS. It is 32'11" long, has 3 slides. Next up is the 337RLS, 3 slides and is 36'1" long. I see you have the 2014 F250, I have the 2013 F250. I did not want to go with the 337RLS due to tongue weight.

The owners forum web site is http://www.granddesignowners.com
Lots of information here.

Agreed, the Arctic Fox is hard to beat for the money. However, the 32-5M is the smallest unit with 3 slides. At 16,500# GVWR and over 2600# pin weight, we felt it was too much for an F-250. I'd like to tow that with a F-350 Dually.

We settled with the 29-5T which is 33'11" overall length, 8'6" wide and grosses at 15,600. We tow with an F-250 and are quite comfortable with 2 slides. At some State Parks we've been to recently, the two slides on the Port side only were a lifesaver.

Good luck on your search. You can see these at www.Northwoodmfg.com and see owners comments at www.nroa2003.com the owners website. The factory in LaGrand OR gives tours every day.

Arctic Fox has the best reputation in the industry. However they're a small west coast company, and their dealer base is pittiful.

I think the closest dealer from me (NW Alabama) is in Pennsylvania.

It's a shame they've never developed a nationwide dealer base. But then they'd have to ramp up production and they might lose some quality.

I've got the Grand Design Reflection 323BHS, and it's 37', 4 slides and 11K lbs. (dry) with 2k lbs. pin weight. Any of their Reflections can be towed with a 3/4 ton diesel with air bags.

Arctic Fox is the way to go. The other brand I would consider would be a Mobile Suite.
Make sure your tow vehicle is up to the task. I see 5th wheels being towed by F250 and 2500's that are way to large for safety. My brother is getting a BIG Cedar Creek and wanted to tow with a F350. Not big enough. Has decided to go with a mid duty Freightliner. Finally wised up.
