Tow behind? Fifth wheel? Travel trailer or toy hauler? Whatever you buy, you're going to find issues. The RV industry is forced to build products using lighter weight materials. The materials alone lend themselves to issues. They are never as strong or resilient as what you find in your home. RVs are subject to road vibration that your home is never subjected to, and this causes problems over time. The unit you choose will meet your criteria for design, space, and usability.

There is no perfect solution. Only solutions you can comfortably live with. There is no manufacturer that is "better" than any other. All have quality control issues, and all produce products that are good on some days, great on others, and from time to time are really crappy.

Whatever RV you buy will be made by humans. Remember that when you discover problems. Which is why you purchase extended coverage well beyond the one year manufacturer coverage.

Make your decision based on what YOU like. Don't base your choice on what some hot head writes in a forum. That's why I won't recommend any unit over another. I know what works for me and my family. You have to figure out what works for you and yours.

I own a Voltage product made by Dutchmen. Friends own Jayco products. Others have Keystone rigs. Everyone likes what they have and simply works around any issues that develop. We are not lemmings. We choose what is best for us, and live with our choices.

Again. ALL rigs sold today are good and of sufficient quality to get the job done. Make your decision based on what FITS YOU.

Hope this helps. If you want to see my setup to to http://myvoltagerv.com and learn more. I love my fifth wheel, not because it is the best trailer in the world, but because it's the best trailer in the world for me. See the difference?

My wife and I are picking up our 2014 Voltage 3970 from Richardson's next month! Can't wait, how did your PDI go, how are you liking the rig so far?

My wife and I looked at the Voltage 3990, which has a rear bathroom. Its very small though, we didn't think it was worth it to pick that floorplan over the one we really liked just for the second bathroom.

The second bathroom has been a blessing for us. It allows our kids to have their own space away from the main bathroom. It is SO NICE not to have to share a bathroom with the kids. Did I say it was great?

Also, the second bathroom can be used as an additional storage locker of sorts.

Our PDI went well. Only thing we didn't do was try out the waste tanks, and didn't try out the San-T-Flush system. We should have, because they both leak. I'll get that fixed after we've had the rig for a year, so I don't have to drag it all the way back to the dealer.

I have a 7-year extended service plan, and after the first year, I can go wherever I want for repairs. The first year Dutchmen requires you take the trailer to the dealer for repairs. I'd do that if it was something serious.

We travel primarily to Ocotillo Wells. If you don't know about it, it's in the Anza Borrego desert. Highway 78 runs right through it. It's called a State Vehicular Recreation Area. Every imaginable kind of vechicle runs out there. It's dry camping, but there is an RV park called Blu In. Neat place, lots of trails. About 3 hour drive for us. The next stop after that would be Glamis dunes.

Howdy!

We fulltime and about to replace our 5er with a new Toy Hauler. After much research we went with Cyclone by Heartland. I look at the Voltage on the lot side by side to the Cyclone and the Cyclone won hands down. The one thing that was a no go for me and a lot of others was the schwintek slide motors. Way to may problems schwintek slide motors.

"Happy Trails"
