Future RV owner

Hi everyone
I am in the process of buying my first RV (5th wheel) and I plan to live in it year-round, including ND winters. I would be grateful for any advice regarding top quality RV's. I want to buy a new, 30'+ 5th wheel, but I don't know anything about the different brands.
Thank you and I am looking forward to joining you on the road soon.

Welcome to the forum and good luck on your search. You might look in the 5th wheel section of the forum. Might get some good ideas there.

Did you say
including ND winters.
Take a look at Carriage 5ers. They used to have video on their website of the tests they do for sub-zero camping. Their Cameo line is a good start, or the Carri-lite is step up. A 2-3 year old Carri-lite prices have been a deal if you find one....

Full time, 4-season for ND winters will take a well built and insulated RV. Try Mobil or Select Suites. Maybe Carriage, New Horizon or Nuwa could be used.

I don't feel that Forest River, Thor or Keystone and like manufacturers make a trailer suitable for ND winters.
