Question Looking for advice on a new 5th wheel?

Well first off I would like to thank anyone for their advice! I work away from home year round and I'm looking to purchase a new RV since my 01 TT has just about had it. I stay in the south mostly but right now I'm in North Dakota and one of the questions I have is, would be better to purchase one up here(North)?

I'm looking for a quad bunkhouse with 4 or 5 slides since my family travels with me most of the time. Is there a certain manufacture I should stay away from since I move around every couple of months? The TT(1 slide) I have now is a Cherokee, it's the first and only TT I have owned and after the years of heavy use and dragging it up and down the road I can't complain. But I and the family are ready for an upgrade not only in space but in quality to. We would really like one with slides for both bunks.

Thanks - Arthur

Do to the size of your family, you might want to special order one to fit your needs, if it were me and i still had littles ones running about, i would consider this as hind sight. We have owned two 5th wheels in the past and now have our 1st Class A MH. You can go to Ind. and right at most of the factories and take a tour to see how things are built and order direct. This just MOHO here! Good Luck and Happy Trails!

The 4 bunk design is a common layout for several manufactures. That is the good news. The bad news is you may have to weed thru some of them to get the quality you want.

Jayco would jump to the list that I would consider.

Good luck

My thoughts would be to look elsewhere than ND for a unit, due to the demand of the energy boom thereabouts.
'15 38RSSA Mobile Suites
'05 36TK3 Mobile Suites--retired but not forgotten
'17 F450--trying one more Ford
'09 F450--died, replaced with '10--retired

Thanks for the replies! I have had a class C motorbike for a few years and enjoyed it, I will look into it again. At the moment I have looked at a Sabre and Sandpiper, the wife liked the layout of the Sabre, but I don't know about the quality of those? And the prices here seem on par with the units I looked at back home(Texas).

It's been a while, but we found a Forest River Salem Hemisphere 356QBQ. We really like the layout and extra bath, is there any known negatives about this line? Thanks again for any info!
