We just bought a coachmen Chaparral Lite the model is 285 rls in is in the mid profile range. We have been looking for a couple of years and finally found the layout we like. Take a look, ours is well built and easily pulled by our F150 although it is the 3.5 Eco boost with the max tow haul package. I would say if you already have a camper, take the time to find what you guys want.

I like the looks of the Grand Design but I don't know about the frames and running gear, maybe someone can enlighten me.

To me the most important things are stuff you don't see. Wiring plumbing, frames, axles along with the fit and finish.


Completely agree, was looking at GD before purchasing our Arctic Fox 27-5L near,y 4 years ago. No comparison when comparing the frame and many components they are made from. Never had a regret.

We have the same quest. I'm very unhappy with the build quality of our 2013 Jayco bunkhouse fifth wheel. Nice layout, lousy execution. We are ready for a shorter, more nimble fifth wheel with multiple slides and a seriously good build. It doesn't need to look like a house, but it needs to be built to last. We are willing to pay for it. I don't follow the news in the RV world much. Is anybody making something like that?

We got a 2016 GD 303rls about a year ago and could not be happier. No trouble at all and we really like the layout. Head and shoulders above our Keystone Outback Sydney Ed.

New Horizon if you have very deep pockets.

I like the 27-5L floor plan a lot.
