As far as the Open Range we came very close to purchasing one but every unit we looked at had quality issues.

If you don't like Excel Wild Cargo then I have nothing else to add, they are in the top five and you can make changes and chose colors.

There build quality is outstanding, I have looked at hundreds of rigs in the last three years and there are only a hand full of RV's that even come close.
What are the other quality rigs in your handful of "quality" rigs besides the excel? I am a newbie looking for a quality 5th wheel. What about the Blackwood or Palamino Columbus?

The pictures you posted a link to is to our Excel so, I thought I would reply to the few other rigs we looked at. When we narrowed it down it was either the Excel or the New Horizons....that was it. Peterson Industries actually made the 2012 W41GKE model floor plan based on our request.This was based on one of their Limited Edition floor plans integrated into a toy hauler. The one thing that was also important between models was that the Excel had higher ground clearance which was a concern on the New Horizons Moto Mover. Also, these two units are probably the two most expensive in the industry. Both have fulltime living warranty and are very well built units. I think the new DRV Full House is a nice unit .....just don't like the garage design.
