We went to the RV Show @ Hershey and

saw and gave a good lookover to a 2013 LIFESTYLE 5er. All I have to sat is WOW, WOW, and did I say WOW? What a great rig, and the Company guy's were there. Nice folks, all. They are making a really great rig, super high quality. But no, I didn't buy one yesterday. I went over it with the old fine tooth comb, and saw nothing that would make me say anything to the company guy's. This is at the top of my "want" list for sure. They are a bit pricey, but are loaded with a lot of things that are options on all the other rigs I looked at. Price wise they are north of aproxamatly $85,000.00 but thats where all of the top end 5ers come in.
If your looking at getting a high end unit, you should give this a look. I would rank this up there with the Newmar Mountian Aire. (If they were still making one).

Never go to an RV show: If you have a rig you will want to push it off a cliff.

Well,not at this time anyway. We went to see what was out there as our 5er is 14 years young. We have had it for only a year now, (purchased from a camping friend of my DD and SIL) to make sure we would like camping as much as we did years ago. So far the enjoyment is there, so we just thought that we should look at a few we had looked at on line. Should we decide in the next year or two, we will be talking to Lifestyle for sure. Seems as Newmar doesn't want our buisness any more, so we shall go elseware with our money.

We were at the Hershey show as well. This was our first time there and man, they had a lot of nice rigs there. Lots of vendors as well. We usually go to the Dallas show and there just aren't many vendors or dealers at that show.

We also were in Hershey, we wanted to get a hands on look at the Lifestyle,we toured all they had on display and even spent some time talking with Elliott the factory rep, he answered any and all questions we had and we even got a little tidbit that residential fridges would be either standard or at the very least an option.soon..a RF is a must have item in our book. Overall we were VERY impressed with the Lifestyle's build quality and materials. Insulation R-values are exceptional . We even eliminated the Redwood from our list, poor quality control just sloppy fit and finish.
