We only have a 1500 Avalanche to tow so we would have to upgrade that truck if we go 5th wheel. I know we will see a lot of opinions, but that is who we are & where we stand. excited to become an owner.
WELCOME!!!!!!!!!!!

Fortunately or unfortunately, as your case of choosing an RV may be, if you simply weigh the differences - including very specifically the expense of a new (to you) truck and 5th over towing your pickup behind your A or C class - ascertain your use (how often) and distances wanting to travel.

Once you put all of this thinking together, GO FOR IT AND HAVE MANY FANTASTIC MOMENTS RVing!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you already have a big truck, then the towable can be a nice option. But for us, the Class A was a better choice.

For new there are only the 2 maker's mentioned in the original post.
2015 Outlaw Class A Toy Haulers: Class C Motorhomes by Thor Motor Coach
and
Newmar Canyon Star Motorhome | Newmar

For used there are more options see:
Class "A" Toyhaulers

We have the Outlaw for many reasons listed here:
http://www.irv2.com/forums/f120/i-lo...aw-102560.html

And, just FYI there are 2 new Outlaw's in the line - a Class C and Super C:
2015 Outlaw Class C Toy Haulers: Class C Motorhomes by Thor Motor Coach

Best luck!
I don't have a big enough truck, apparently. After some more reading if I was to get a 5th wheel I would be best served to get a (350, 3500, etc...) I thought a single axle F250 would be the way to go, I could haul the RZR in the bed if I wanted then load it in the 5er. I am not sure I want to have a F350 as a daily driver. I think the class A toyhauler is the way to go. I have narrowed (there only a couple choices) it down to try to locate a Bounty hunter 3808 or Outlaw 3916, they have the larger garage (need 11feet @ minimum).

BEST LUCK!!

The actual models with the deepest garages were the Damon Outlaw 3808 (12') like:
2009 Damon Outlaw 3808, Columbia IL - 112496584 - RVTrader.com
and the Gulf Stream Bounty Hunter (12'-16'), like:
2008 Gulf Stream Bounty Hunter, simi valley CA - 112364036 - RVTrader.com

These are both very rare Front Engine Diesels (FRED)! I have no affiliation to either selling party.

The new Outlaw's (37LS and 37MD) and the Newmar Canyon Star 3920 and 3921 have garages in the 10' range (122" for Outlaw, 120" for Canyon Star).

Safe travels
