Opinions are just what you got, lots of different ones, but lots of good info. You have to decide what works for YOU and what it is that YOU want. For me a fiver is perfect, I prefer to drive the truck, and it is much more comfortable to sight see and go shopping in. My wife says she doesn't want to spend all night in the same place she spent all day.

I would recommend a class A. We started with a 35ft gas and towed a Chevy HHR. We now have a. 42ft DP. The 3 major holidays we stay at a camp ground 40 miles from home. We make two long trips a year that are two weeks long. I like the extra room, putting the auto levelers down, and putting the slides out. It also allows my DW to get up and get us drinks, make sandwiches, and she can use the bathroom without us stoping as with a 5th wheel.

I have had both fifths and now have had three class a's, one gas and two diesel. I would say that if you are travelers the class A's do give a spectacular view. Only the diesel's provide a wonderful quiet ride and "float" on air bags. I liked the 5th when I had them because I had a 3/4 ton diesel truck already as a tow vehicle. If you lean toward a fifth wheel, I highly recommend getting a model with 6 point hydraulic leveling - it makes using the fifth wheel almost as easy as the class A's. JMO - hope this helps. mark

Plenty of opinions here.
But please can we all stop bashing the one you don't have. It serves no purpose. My DW is blonde, so don't tell me your redhead is better and you used to have whatever. Just help the feller out by telling what you like about your choice.

I have had then all and will stay with my class A. We have a 26 foot class a we make one trip a year for two or three weeks without a toad. Not having a toad works for us and should we need one we will rent for a day or two. I love the auto levelers as it takes 15 minutes to set up and break camp. The rest of the time we make a two or three day trip around close to home once a month. I haul the bass boat with us when going on these trips. I find it more useful then the toad.

FWIW I do not see any bashing. Giving an opinion with reasons is not bashing. I would not own a blank because they are all blanks is bashing.

We down sized from a DP to a C. I wanted bigger wife wanted smaller, guess who won. Really I did agree for "WHAT WE ARE WANTING NOW" State parks mountain camping by lakes. We fit with no finding the one 45' spot taken by a B, another story.
They C will tow the boat and launch EZer than a bigger A. Get about the same fuel per gallon so that is a wash. We did not give up any amenities as the C has it all except for no leveling jacks, but a lot of C's have them and if your buying new you can order them. Drive ability is as good ride is a little ruffer but acceptable. The wife likes it much better while in travel mode as she, like a lot of the women did not like the ride from her seat(there are many women with this problem).
