Hi all,

Just discovered this site, it is great, lots of topics and conversation. We are getting back into an rv this summer (Palomino Sabre Silhouette 320fqds 5th wheel) on order and look forward to it. We have been out for a couple years (new baby, new house) but are coming out of a 2007 Arctic Fox 990 truck camper to the large bunkhouse 5th wheel for three boys age 1,5,and 7.

I have owned a 22' non slide 5th wheel (1998 Tahoe) and a 20' non-slide travel trailer (05 Four Winds), both pulled with a 1999 F150(HD) with 5.4 V8. I also had an 07 AF990 truck camper hauled with a 2006 Dodge 2500 diesel with lots of modifications to carry the 5000lbs. of weight. Sold that combo to move, but really miss the freedom of that particular setup. With three younger boys, we opted to go with the large bunkhouse 5th wheel this time.

Overall, I like the hitch/unhitch process of the 5th wheel the best, just a lot easier than either the trailer or the truck camper. Look forward to joining the crowd.

We are glad you found us. 15 years ago I sold my RV and 2 years later I had to purchase another because I felt my life was incomplete. "007" is correct once this lifestyle gets in you blood it is difficult to break away. Post often and share your RV adventures with us. Don't be afraid to ask questions as we have a great group who like to help.
