Fulltimed in a Bighorn for six years...am now fulltiming in a Landmark. Pinnacle is a nice rig...but felt Heartland a better bang for the buck.

Both Landmark and Bighorn are warranted for fulltiming and Landmark is covered with a 2&5 warranty...

Well I personally do not see big difference today in MS and many higher end Thor products. You will get the "plywood vs non-plywood crowd. The haters of all things sucessfull like Montana. Find what you like and can afford. Realize they are rolling houses and not the same as a brick and mortar house, therefore don't get to critical of materials etc. They all have good and bad qualities. Take your time and visit owners web sites for real opinions! Good luck.

And I own a Pinnacle, so that is the best! Right??

Get a dealer that you trust and has a good reputation. In a lot of ways that is as important as finding the right rig for you.

Good luck with your journey to a new 5W!

I have been very happy with my 05 cardinal I have just always wanted a MS, don't need one its just on my wish list. If ever do get one it will be used for sure unless of course I win the lottery.

Sorry for this hijacking of this thread.

Lets see, our 2005 Cardinal 29WBLX has a Kamper King 72x80 bed, a really nice computer desk, and two recliners that look straight at the TV! Having trouble finding those three items in most new trailers! And it only overloads my 3/4 GVWR by a half ton.
