Newbie with fifth-wheel question.

My wife and I are getting back into RVing, and I wonder if anyone on the forum owns or has knowledge about the Dynamax Triology fifth wheel. I have been looking at a new one locally with a terrific mark down in price. The unit looks great, but I wonder about a $43k markdown in early spring.

I know they love to get people to think it's a big mark down.
Every time I have bought a 5th (3) it's always been a mark down.
Just look into the brand they might also have a forum
There nice looking units that's for sure and every one will say there is the best.

Trilogy is a fantastic unit!
They are trying to get a name in the market and working hard for sales.
They have all the latest and even more.
Pros: Fiberglass roof
Built in Propane tank (like MH)
Huge cargo area. I think they claim largest in the industry.
Excellent build
Cabinets top quality Largest Pantry I have ever seen!
Slight curved design for areo dynamics.
Frame less windows
Stainless and top quality every where you look.
Cons: Very new to market
Limited floor plans. RL and that is about it.

For the money they are great if you have 65 - 75 k in your pocket.
Not sure if you got a better price than that or not but from what we have seen looking them over for 2 years now. They are at the top of the list. What is your concern?

Own one, came up from an Airstream. It's a lot of space , amenities are great, there are some warranty issues that need to be tended to so we will have to travel up to the factory before it runs out.

How easy is it to get fill the large buily in propane tank on the Trilogy?

Also when it rains is the fiberglass roof noisy?

Mr. Tuffr, I was born and raised in Colunkus Oheehaw, Bexley. The propane tank is just the same connection as exists for MHs. It is located in the utility bay sewer line levers etc. Ours was one of the early 2013s. Now they supply a backup 20lb cannister. The shutoff valve has no indicator for off/on you can accidentally shut it off when messing around in there and think you ran out of fuel, as I just did while cooking a large meal and was being dumb enough not to check the valve and when we went to dump and fill the tank found out we had still 90gls !!!!. The roof is quiter than the Airstream aluminum roof that was 12" above your head. I kinda liked the noise. This is much more quite and besides you are dealing with the AC noise which drowns out any rain unless MR. HURRICANE IS ACOMIN!!!!

Personally, I would think that it's a lot easier to take one (or even both) 40# tanks to a propane refueling station in the back of the truck than to disconnect the 5th wheel, tow it to the refueling station, fuel it up, tow it back and set up all over again.

Just my opinion....

Rusty
