New to this site. I'm a retired engineer and have been retired 8 years now. My wife and I have a 25.5' Prowler with a pop out. I started out with a 5'er some 30+ years ago when the kids were young. Then when I retired, we bought a Class C...too small, jumped up to a class A which was fine until I was stuck in a repair shop for three days some 300 miles from home.
Immediately sold it and bought a this 5'er. Planning a trip, headed north of Ca to Canada.
Hello everyone.

Hello SEON. Welcome to the forum. Lots of nice folks and a great place to get questions answered and just to "shoot-the-breeze". Hope you will post often and tell about your trips. I am curious as to the make and type of class A you had, and what its' problem was that caused you to immediatelly sell it.

Best to you and yours - Glenn

It was an Itasca 27' Sundancer.
While driving up I-5, the MH just died. I got it restarted and drove off the Hwy but died again. Had it towed to an RV shop that replaced the fuel filter..ran but died about 3 miles. I had it towed again to the RV shop that said it's the in-tank fuel pump. Replaced and drove 3 miles and died again. I suggested that they check the fuel pump relay on the 3rd day. They couldn't get an OEM relay because it was Saturday so they "jury rigged" a relay from AutoZone. Got it home and I replaced the OEM relay and MH ran great.
I sold it because it for each tow, it took 3 hours for a tow truck large enough to tow it. Then had to wait for a mechanic to finish up two or three MH repair before getting to mine. BTW not one 5th wheel waiting to be repaired .

Now if I have mechanical problems, I can bring my truck to ANY repair shop. It's just peace of mind.

SEON, thanks for the reply. I can certainly go along with "PEACE OF MIND" especially when on the road!

Sonds like you are all set now, and hope you have great camping in your new 5'er.

Glenn
