As I suspected still a coin toss. With a Dodge Caravan, Sub. Outback and a Z4 for fun, I still have a problem with a 35K-40K truck sitting unused but for 6 or so weeks we use the MH now.
As I write this four days into a two week vacation, with a broken slide cable! Bedroom slide. Having just had a living room cable replaced two weeks ago, from a pre vacation weekend trip after winter storage. Oh and had to replace the hot water heater pressure valve, leaking, yesterday. Maybe we will just start full timing and live here, just west of lovely Detroit.
Don and very sad DW
We have a 2008 HR class A diesel and pull a car. Have had repair after repair, the worst of which is the breaking of slide cables. Body count at 8. The MH was purchased new 2010 and has 18K. My question for all you fivers is. Are fifth wheels easy to use for weekend trips, 1 or 2 week vacations with multiple stops, sometimes just over night?
We are not yet retired, two more years, but we will not full time after we do retire. Just winter south for a few months. We like fifth wheels and considered one before the class A, but I have no other need for 3500 series diesel PU crew cab, we have 4 dogs.
