We are looking to purchase our first 5th Wheel and are considering the Open Range model 345RLS OR THE 318LS
We upgraded our truck to a 2013 Ford 250 Super Duty Diesel 6.7.
Would like some feedback from anyone who is an owner or familiar with the brand.
We don't have our hitch set up yet as we wanted to be sure whatever we purchase is compatible...
Sure need some feedback.....Thanks, John (Florida)

We have had our unit for 18 months and are happy with it, no problems. We have camped around 100 nights so far.

You can also google Open Range RV and find forums made up of owners and get lots of reviews there. I found reviews on all types of topics from Open Range owners about their rigs.

I think thats what most people should do when looking at a certain brands instead of asking about them here, most of them have Owners forums and that is where you get the real scoop, I have a Montana and they have a great forum as do other brands

We love our Open Range and have had few minor problems that have all been taken care of quickly. It seems like the issues with past models have been worked out.

We've had our 345RLS for almost two years, traveled 15,000 miles through several states in a variety of weather and have been very happy with it. No major problems and it's very comfortable. Suggest you check out the Owner's forum.

Brother-in-law has had nothing but trouble with his. He did purchase an extended warranty policy so it's all been paid for except the deductible. It's going on 4 yrs old.

I've got a 2013 424RLS and love it. Couple of small adjustments and everything works fine. I would do it again.

did the factory tour and saw couple of things that I did not like (like 1/2" non t&g floor) and there were quite a few there for repairs of the heat ducting. I also don't like the cable slide systems...they were a problem since introduced in the 80's and out dealer has said they are a problem and he sells OR
