One thing with a 5er that size is that you're limited on where you can take it. I'm not a big KOA camper myself, I'd rather be in more remote campgrounds where you have a little more space between sites and a lot more trees.

We view our motorhome as our hotel on wheels. We spend a lot of time under the awning and cooking outside, but it sure is nice catching up on the morning news w/ a pot of coffee brewing on the counter while I'm lounged out on my couch. When I'm on vacation, I want to feel like I'm on vacation.

I tried to trade one off after 2 months but ended up keeping it since they were expecting me to take a 6 grand loss and just bought the other one outright.

I ended up losing 2 grand on it. 2 camping trips and lived in it for a month.

Is there a Ram 4500? If not then Ford has one.
Ram apparently makes a 4500, a 5500, and possibly others further up the food chain. Found this pic of a 5500.

Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.

You live and learn, or you don't live long.

My 32 foot Rockwood trailer was a chore to tow. My new 32 foot precept MH is a blast. But I have to watch for the low hanging branches.
