I keep looking at newer FW's, but my little 2013 Jayco HT 26.5RLS has been to Alaska, YS, Black HIlls, and many other states. I've camped in 15 degree weather with no problems too.
I just laugh when I see post that say the HT line of FW's are only good for nearby weekend trips.
I would love to get a newer, and a little bigger unit, but will keep what I have for now.

Really loved our "08" KZ Montego Bay

Didn't want to get rid of it, but wanted/needed some of the easier things in life like auto leveling and electric awnings... It was a hard fiver to get rid of...

Dealer told me it went within 1 week..

We still enjoy going to the RV shows. We never see anything we would prefer over our current trailer. Some of the monster rigs are nice inside but they wouldn't gel with how we like to travel. All the bugs are worked out of our eleven year old trailer, now it's just hitting its stride.

This is my third Sunnybrook and they have all been terrific and they are built really strong. There’s not a bit of particleboard or OSB in any of them. I’ve been to RV shows recently and it’s hard to find any solid wood anywhere in The interiors. Needless to say I won’t be buying anything new. Craig

I think our favorite 5er was the HR 26RKS, we've seriously looked at getting another.

That’s a great looking FW. I like the simplicity of the decals. Mine are in terrible shape, about the only thing I don’t like. Could easily and cheaper to put those stripes on when I get mine off.
Those new RVs with all the scrolls and such don’t do much for me.

I absolutely agree! Between the interior fabrics and the exterior graphics, I've often wondered if all the old acid-head hippies ended up at the RV mfrs. [emoticon]
