RE: Looking for '96-'97 Designer 3430 RK 5th Wheel
Thanks for the quick response, however, I am looking for a particular floor plan "RK" (Rear Kitchen) to meet my needs. First of all this trailer is going to be stationary and used for a hunting camp, retirement get away etc on my 40 acres in the middle of nowhere (off the grid) in mid Michigan in the Au Sable State Forest (west of Gladwin/east of Standish). The '95 Designer sat there for 18+ years until it's demise (Fire Specialist was unable to determine the exact cause of the fire but most likely the A/C and or the wiring shorted out and caused a fire contained within the roof - not visible to me when I went to town for dinner and a beer.) Back to why the need for an "RK" floor plan. The door side of the trailer sat/will sit with the main picture window facing north looking over my front yard. If I get a RL (Rear Living) all I will be able to see is the side of my pole barn and my truck, yuck. Also, all my underground utilities (Electric lines from Genset etc., fresh water and septic) are set up accordingly. 2nd, I need a "Front Closet" for coats, boots etc. and 3rd, I need a Tall closet/cabinet in the entertainment center for rifles, shotguns etc. The '94-'97 3430 RK 5th wheel had all those features, plus an "open bathroom which I just loved. However, the '94-'95 had a "dropped roof" which proved to be problematic (roof leaks, thin luan wood on the front half of the roof of the trailer, reroofed my trailer 2 summers ago to the tune of $2,500 parts only, we did the labor). That leaves just the '96-'97 with the sloped (improved) roof.
I spent many an hour scouring the internet for a trailer to no avail. So I have turned to you fine people to help me in my endeavor. Many "Thanks". Jim!
