Just signed up today. I've owned several truck campers in the past, the last one was destroyed in a tornado while in La. in March. I'm looking to go to a 5th wheel and know little to nothing about the various models. At this time I am looking at the Keystone Springdale 242. The weight and length are right for what I need. I guess my question is, does anyone have any info good or bad on this model and can anyone recommend any other model that is similar.

Hi Bunion and

You might try using our search function to check out specific fiver models. If you don't have much luck there then post specific questions in our fifth wheel forum and you should get a lot of experts chiming in.

Best of luck...

Welcome aboard....

Yes, I would post that make and model in the 5er section...Is it a new or used unit? You can also list up to what size of 5er your looking for, or what your truck will handle....Never trust a dealer to say what size you can handle.....
