Time to get involved...

Hi everyone,

We have been lurking here on the forums for quite some time and there is a lot of good information to be had and we thank everyone.

With that my wife is planning on retiring in 2012 and she wants to hit the road for extended periods (months) of time. So we we have been researching fifth wheels and will be moving up from our current travel trailer our 25 foot Nomad travel trailer. The Nomad has been a great RV for us over the last two years but our trips are short usually 3 to 5 days and we want something that will be more comfortable on our future trips.

Our research has narrowed our choices down to two manufacturers and series the Jayco Pinnacle and Dutchmen Infinity.

The Pinnacle 36 REQS was the model we settled on on a recent trip (November) to San Diego where we had a chance to see. Our local Jayco dealer here in Reno had recently took on the Pinnacle line however their initial orders were not in yet.

The San Diego dealer also showed us the new Infinity which looks to be a great product also. Another dealer here in Reno just signed up for the Infinity line at the recent Louisville show so we will have both the Pinnacle and Infinity available locally.

Last week at our local Jayco dealer called and said they had their first Pinnacle in and we stopped by over the weekend to see the Pinnacle 36 KPTS. My wife fell in love with this brand-new model with the enormous pantry storage and I have to admit I agree. So we have a new number one.

My question is does anyone have any experience with the new 36KPTS and the Pinnacle in general.

This past summer we bought the 'puller' so we are set there.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Lee.

We haven't made the purchase yet as we are still gathering information on the Pinnacle and the Infinity. We have at least narrowed it down that far and again with Jayco the 36 KPTS looks to be the floor plan. In the Infinity we have a model would like also however now it's going to be choosing the manufacture and of course price.

Will start posting in the fifth wheel forum in case some people do not come into this one that often.
