Made the move to a 5'r

We've been looking for the past 2 years at what we consider to be our last RV. The Sprinter treated our family well but, the grandkids are in their teens now and going on trips with the grandparents isn't their big interest anymore. A bunkhouse TT can be put to better use by another family.

Last year I read about the new Winnebago Destination 36RL in Trailer Life. It had many good points, some not so good. In that regard I found the article to be a bit picky. Finally saw one in person about 2 months ago at a local dealer after looking over so many brands and models. We pick it up in 3 weeks.

Just never forget it is there as it turns well inside the truck. I forgot for a few seconds last weekend and dropped my passenger side wheels off a narrow single-track and into a marsh, came to a stop with wheels spinning. I put it into 4WD will DW was going "OMG" and pulled it out. Close one!

Thanks for that heads up. I've been pulling a TT for so many years, I know I'll have to learn a whole new way of towing. And parking!

We picked up the Destination as planned on the 6th. I am so pleased with the way it handles - better than the 31' travel trailer. Have already spent 13 nights in it. Unfortunately our schedule probably won't let us use it again until the end of October, and we just can't wait!

campnfools, how do you like your Destination 36RL so far. We are looking for a new trailer and the 36Rl has made it to the shortlist. Any issues with the front jacks hitting the ground?

I just want those who say that Trailer Life likes everything they review to see this. I remember reading the review and thinking that they do sometimes point out things they don't like.

Sorry I wasn't able to respond sooner. Unfortunately I had a medical issue com up that kept me down since the end last year. Much better now (great doctor and surgeon!) and ready to start camping.


We were able to get about 20 nights in the Destination last year. I could go on and on about it but the bottom line is, we are very pleased and if had to make the decision again, we'd make the same.


The only issue we found was, the single 15,000 BTU AC unit can't keep the unit cool when the temps get to the mid 80's. I have it in shop now having a second unit installed.
