I do not one own but did see one model at the RV show this year that we attended. One thing I did not see was the upgraded type of suspension that some units seem to have the unit we did see seem to be the standard style that most 5er's use. What I mean is there where no grease able points on the suspension such as wet bolts and the bushings. The link plates look thinner also not the 1/2 plates as some models use.
Also what size tires do they offer are they G-rated or are a lower letter size.; are the axles rated for 7,000 LBS? These are what we looked for when we were upgrading to a newer 5er this year.
The interiors may look great and have a lot of bling but what really counts is the structure and running components as these are what takes the most abuse when towing.
