Sorry I took so long to get back to you. I just saw your question today.
After two years of looking for a full time type RV we had settled on a DRV. We were at the Hershey RV show looking at the DRV models ready to order one but were very disappointed in how poor the finish quality was. We ran into some current owners of DRV's at the show. The loved there trailer and said they would buy again since there weren't any quality competitors in the price range. Multiple people told us as much as they liked their DRV they didn't like all the trips to the dealers for warranty repairs. After all the comments we heard, We decided we would wait for a while to see what happens in the market.
Lifestyle happened to the market. We saw the crowd growing by some very nice looking 5th wheels not to far from the DRV exhibit so we decided to check it out. Besides the dealer rep there were two of the owners from Lifestyle their showing off their new company and trailers. We spent 3 hrs going over everything top to bottom. We were so impressed we bought one.
We picked it up in September and love it. Everywhere we go people come up to us to ask about it. There hasn't been a day since we picked it up and we are staying in it that we have't given tour.
One guy who toured was on his hands and knees several times. When I asked him what he was doing, he said he builds upscale homes and he doesn't finish the homes as nice as this. The slides work great. We have the full wall slide and no problems. No problems so far.
