The KZ29P is a 30' Fifth Wheel -- a small slide is an option.

Thx for the warm welcome. I am actually a soon to be KZ gal. LOL. We are supposed to take delivery of our KZ29P this Friday -- FINALLY! We had a Tailgator prior and it sold much more quickly than anticipated.

I looked for a long time before deciding on the KZ line(for about 8 months -- I think I've reviewed every toy hauler made -- wish I were kidding). DH couldn't have cared less - he'd be happy to sleep in the truck LOL.

I was originally interested in the 33P New Vision, but DH wanted to stay at or under 30', so ... we compromised. I got the 5er w/ a separate garage and he got at or about 30'.

Let's see - TV is 2005 F350 PSD DWD Lariat w/ Tow Boss package. LOVE IT! Previous TV was 2003 F350 PSD SWD. LOVED IT TOO!

Glad to be on board.

Been lurking here for quite awhile and finally thought I'd add my 2@. We've had the Sportster 33P since last November and highly recommend it. Little longer than the 32' your thinking of but with a little practice I've learned to cram this thing into all the same places I used to put my Tahoe 20TTB. The garage is 8x10 and will hold 2 quads and a couple of bikes no problem. With a little creativity you can get a lot more in it as well. Very liveable interior and I don't have to unpack if I want to just sit back and pop a cold one.

Fatdog,

Actually, I really like the patio hauler. I was kind of torn between a new KZ 29SP, or I was hoping to find a clean used 320F patio hauler when I ran into this 29' Patio Hauler at a good price. Not quite as nice a floorplan as the 320, but it has the other features I liked about the patio hauler and I was able to pay cash...

I particularly like the slats in the garage floor. Though a little dust gets in on dirt roads, for quads or dirtbikes it really isn't an issue, and the best part is I can hose out the back and the muddy water sluces through the floor.

Bummer factor is two big quads will only fit if turned sideways.

The Jake really works great. I pulled over the blue mtn range east of Pendleton recently, and it really comes in handy.

So far, I've spent time at the Tillamook off road riding area (great fun), the Mt. Fanny riding area (short trail, but was in the area anyway) and McCubbin's Gulch riding area...

I also pretty much looked at everything made, too, and wanted something short enough to get into the less developed camping areas. If I were shopping for a new one right now, with a seperate garage and slide, it would probably be the 33' KZ... If I'm not mistaken Patio Hauler discontinued the 29 and 32', plus they didn't offer a slide until you get the 35' job.

Though most new RV's depreciate pretty fast, it seems to be pretty tough to find a used toy hauler that isn't either priced way over book, or trashed...
