If you Boondockers had a choice, what brand under 30 feet looks best?

Please give me your recommendations considering weight, structural integrity, waste storage and value/price.

Many thanks,

Almost every time a question like this comes up, Arctic Fox by Northwood comes up towards the top of the list. They are one of the only brands built for off road use, are very rugged, mid-range priced, and they probably have more models under 30' than any other brand. See my sig for details on mine.

We have a Titanium 24E29 by Glendale.

It has 29 feet of living quarters but tows like a 24 footer because of pin placement.

I just got a 25' Aljo by Skyline. I was looking at a Tahoe 25. The tahoe was lighter wght but had a hand pushout small slider. Got a killer deal on the Aljo also and it has way more features and storage space, slide out wider and has large storage under the couch,and its hydralic , ducted heat and air the tahoe didnt have.

The Aljo is built better with more feathures than most I looked at. Its 6500 lbs, not too heavy.

I don't know if you found your rig yet but I couldn't help replying to your post. I'm also a Jim Allen.

There is an organization that provides the kind of data on RVs you are asking for. They are located at http://www.rv.org and their software costs about $100. The rate RVs for such things as boondocking. It is my assumption boondocking RVs will stay together on rough roads and are looked at differently than RVs used for full timing.

You might go to http://www.rvtraderonline.com and do a search for 5th wheels under 30 foot. I am looking at units under 22 foot. Lots available.
Also try :
http://www.rvclassifieds.com
http://www.rvtrader.com
http://www.rvregistry.com

Chet

p.s. If I was buying new the Artic Fox by Nash would be number one on a very short list.
