I wish. I have been asked this question by someone who could really benefit by the experience of the folks on these Forums in selecting a new RV. Looking for best quality and customer support. Tow vehicle will be matched to the trailer whatever it takes.
Thanks
John

It's a loaded question, you'll get many varied opinions.

Most folks will respond with a vote of support for the brand they own rather than an objective recommendation.

With that out of the way and since money is no object, take a look at some models from Newmar, Travel Supreme, Nu-Wa, Alpha Gold, and Teton to name a few. There's others but my mind isn't picking up on all of them right now.

All good names Richard and you're right,there are a bazillion opinions....If I was going back to fivers and money was NO object,I'd pick the Royals by Carriage 38 footer...
(I'd have me a SWEET medium duty hauler too!! )

I've been to the factory,when I had a fiver by them and IMHO it's a nicely built rig...

My late Father in law had a Hitchhiker and I always liked that and yes,Travel Supreme's a good looker too!! Too many choices!!

I already tossed a manufacturer's name your way on the other forum, so I won't repeat the answer. I'm only posting here just to say I would never, ever, under any circumstances, "pick the Royals by Carriage 38 footer."

I did pick it at one point (look at sig line), but experience is the best teacher. I would never pick it again. There's been too many poor quality control issues and difficult warranty dealings with the company since their buyout by an investment group.

Ah heck, I will repeat the answer from the other forum. Take a good look at the Tetons. I would also agree that the Newmar Kountry Aire would be worth a look along with the top end Travel Supreme product.

Good luck.

Something else to keep in mind is that top dollar may not neccesarily get the best unit and or support.

That's very true....By the way, WELCOME to iRV2!!
Richard is so right when he mentions we all have our favorites...

but....

My wife's parents always owned fifth wheels,thus our first two units were fifth wheels...If she had her way,(gosh did I say that?) we'd have another fifth wheel,but the one she wanted I would only pull with an MDT,
and "my" wife ain't riding in no MDT according to her. I do love my Vectra,don't get me wrong,but I could do just fine with a fiver too.
