What are the custom 5th wheel manufactures to consider?

May want to get rid of the DP and go to a 5th wheel. Just thinking out loud but.....

What are the 5th wheel manufactures that you would consider custom and not mass produced? I have had boats built custom for me and loved the process as it got built exactly to my specs. Service of the product after the fact would be a concern of course. I would prefer something made in AZ or S CA just for access to after build service. Would not be opposed to something built somewhere else as long as the service aspect of it all is covered.

So......what are the names so I can get started on my research?

Agree with rollondown. Those are the 3 custom rigs.

I believe SpaceCraft will make a 53' long rig. Not sure if the other guys will build that large.

Of course you will need at least a MDT or better yet a full fledge HDT to tow these beatiful custom rigs.

I can tell you my new factory ordered 16 MobileSuites is VERY "custom". With 68 changes I think that qualifies.

Continental Coach will make longer that 45' as well

If you want a custom toyhauler, the "new" Weekend Warrior built by the RV Factory will also build custom, it's only $$$$$$$ )

I can vouch for Continental Coach / Forks RV. We have had ours for 2 1/2 years and are thoroughly pleased. Unbelievable quality and service.
45ft w 6 slides. No propane; all diesel. Have been in as low as -26 with no problem.
