RE: Premium Bunkhouse 5th wheel

Thank you all for the feedback so far I really appreciate it. A couple of notes. Towing capacity is not an issue. We can tow 28,900lbs with a pin weight approaching 6k. I had not thought of KZ. Anyone out there with a Stoneridge 39BH? :-) We were originally thinking a TH... but our children are young and we wanted a more "indoor type bunk until they get a little older. We have actually looked at the Grand Designs bunkhouse twice now. We really like that 5th wheel with a couple of exceptions and thus far they have been deal breakers. Small fridge and no washer/dryer prep. A couple of sets of friends of ours in their trailers/motorhomes wish they had a bigger double fridge and a washer and dryer. I wish Grand Design would come out with a Solitude BH... I would remain patient, Grand Design might just make a Solitude Bunkhouse this fall. BTW if your 3/4 ton diesel is limited to 12/2k then you may be overweight with the 323BHS as the GVWR is 13,995 per GD's website.

RE: KZ Durango 358BHK Questions

Looking for advice on a 2013/14 KZ Durango 358BHK. Anyone out there that owns one? How has it held up? Wondering about the slide / landing gear operation as well as level up operation. Anyone know if the axles are upgraded between 13 / 14? Im guessing they are 7000# but don't know for sure. Any option advice? Thanks in advance. I don't have a Durango, I have a 2012 Stoneridge 35RE. It's a very nice rig, built well. Fit and finish could be a little better but it still gets a lots of "ooohs" and "ahhhs" from friends. Mine has 7000 pound axles.

RE: Minor rant about fifth wheel layouts.

I am on my 2nd KZ and both have had good size bedrooms with King beds... One was a toyhauler 37ft (FU) and the new 2012 is a 36ft StoneRidge, been happy with both.. Good luck...

RE: what mid-range 5th wheels are out there w/o lippert?

looking to see what mid-range priced 5th wheels are available that don't have Lippert frame/suspension? Some i think i've found (feel free to correct) are: - jayco - kz - northwoods You sure about KZ? I'm guessing by "mid-range" you're referring to the Durango series, but I recently inquired about KZ Stoneridge and Goldrush lines and was told the are Lippert.

RE: 5v'er to gooseneck solution

This is the route I went. I love it! The only drawback is it is a little more effort to hitch up but worth it to me. Well I can't seem to be able to post a photo. But do a search on Reese goose box. And pop up ball. ok...im back. My name is matt hickman, I'm 53 years old and have been pulling rv's for over 30 years as I travel the country chasing the oil and gas payroll which has served me very well through the years. I started at 20 yrs old with an old Fleetwood unit and a chevy gasser. today I travel with my 2011 F350, 6.7,DRW, 4x4 CC long box pulling a 2011 40' stoneridge made by KZ at 11,760 lbs dry, & 2,190 hitch weight dry. and in the middle of those years were various trucks and rv's of many makes and models. you see, when you pull one around as much as I do, you have to trade in often, they just don't hold up well with the miles I put on them, and at 53, I have never owned a home in my life to date. have always been in an rv since 20 out on the road. and I can tell ya that I have had my share of misfortunes and mishaps that comes with full timing. I shudder to think of actually how many miles I have pulled an rv for the last 30 years!.... I was not looking to start an argument over what hitch is better folks, I simply was sharing my! personal experience having pulled with a fifthwheel hitch for 30 years and now have went to a gooseneck and I like it. I love the clean bed and not having to get up in the bed to remove the hitch, I just push the lever in the wheel well and the ball drops out of sight, reverse to pop it up, how simple is that! its just my preference that's all. the bed hitch was heavy!, awkward and frankly out of date. it was a 20k reese, a dinosaur. I banged my shin for the last time going in and out of my tool box. with the goosebox, I have to pay attention to horizontal rotation, no big deal. its really very easy to hook up myself, I placed a strip of white duct tape down the center of the pinbox, I simply back up and align that with the head rest mounts on the back seat and it positions me nearly perfect every time, so no big deal there either. there is very little chucking ever, but occasionally some, the airbag and shocks do a very good job of dampening this out. there are pros and cons to everything rv related and I chose to go gooseneck and I like it. just my observations. How do you hook up the safety chains?
