New fifth wheel which to choose?

We have a 2012 keystone cougar with a rear tv unit. Went to have come work done on it. My front cap is turning white. While at the stealership looked at a open range with a rear bunkhouse we have a 4yr old and are tired of the fold out couch for his bed. We went and looked at a serria and a big horn with the same layouts what does anybody know about these units. Thanks

If your trading in your Cougar then you need to ask yourself if having bunks is worth $5-8,000.00 plus the higher cost of the new unit. You will lose your arse trading in. JMO but I could put up with making beds for several yrs for $5-8,000.00

I think the Sierra's are built well. Also, take a look at sabres and Columbus brands as well. We have a Sabre 5th wheel and love it. The young kids and the wife and I have spent close to 50 nights since picking it up in march. No problems and it's got a lot of options and space.

We have an Open Range 345RLS and are very pleased with it. 2 years and no major problems. Previous TT was a Heartland and we were pleased with that one as well.

The Cougar is hard to beat for the price.

RVs are a depreciating asset; you are going to lose money whether you trade it now or keep it a few more years. If the new unit fits your life style better better than the current and will make you trips easier and more enjoyable then it is worth considering. Enjoyment is the reason we typically get an RV in the first place.
