If you go 5th wheel, you'll want a 1ton. With your half ton, a Winnebago towables Minnie is your best bet. But their 5ers are awesome, too.

I agree with this. The floor plans are not what I was looking for but the dealer said their quality was very high. They don't sit as high or have as much headroom inside, but, If I was going to a 1/2 ton they would be on the short list to inspect. I do notice that my WR being full size does catch the wind more than my Sunnybrook did.
