Best research tools

I am considering a 5th wheeler to park on a slab at my lake here in Alabama. I have no experience with RV's. I do not intend to travel with this it. Does anyone have a web site or recents book guides I can depend on to offer reliable general advise as to quality of different manufactures? Thanks

Almost any park model is better made than a fifth wheel. If you have all the hookups and do not need to be self-contained, that is the way I would go. Just google "park model trailers".

Park models are now called Destination Trailers. Good advise on looking into one of these. Breckenridge is a popular one.
