We have decided that we'd like to purchase a 5th wheel with the front living room. We plan on buying used as many snowbirds trade their RV's in every year here in AZ.

We'd like to buy a mid '90's 5th wheel with a front living room. Yesterday we saw one by Holiday Rambler. Who else made the front living room models in the mid '90's??

Don't know if was in the mid 90's or earlier. Someone at our church as a front living room and I believe it was by Fleetwood in the Prowler series.

Thanks kerfcutter! We were looking at new "Fiver's" but we'd be in the entry level market and don't like the quality we saw.

We figure if we save a little more, we can get a used mid to higher level rig that is made much better.

Kerfcutter's right, my Father-in-law had a '95 Prowler 5th wheel with a living room in the front. It was very comfortable to lounge around in. It was a solid unit. He pulled it across the country and also pulled it to Alaska. Good Luck, Kel.

Folks in our Quebec home park have had one for ten years or more and they full time in it. Winters in Arizona and summers in Quebec. SUre sounds to me like they stand up pretty good!

I was at the RV SHow in STL last spring and they were showing a unit with the front/upstairs living room. Neither my wife or I can remember the brand, so I'm not much help to you. Back in the late 80's, Jayco made a 5er with an "upstairs" living room. Not much help to you, I know....sorry

We looked at a Terry with the front living room and I loved it. I would have bought it, except that I was driving a half ton truck at the time. Maybe I should have listened to the salesman who assured me that I could pull this monster. Salesmen Never!! lie to their customers.....

Somewhat off topic, but Shasta made a 5th wheel with the kitchen up front. In 1995 and 1996, I think. One year had a small slide out, one year didn't.

Keystone Montana, Fleetwood and Four Winds all make new front living room 5th wheels. Of the ones we looked at the Montana was by far the best looking and most comfortable ..... IMHO
