    we have purchased a 1995 36 ft avion fifth wheel with all the bells and whistles, it looks like it just came off the showroom. anyone have any hints on fifth wheels or avions, we will be new fulltimers and can use all the advice we can get



    Hello:

    I just joined RVUSA forum. I am happy to have a place I can ask many RV related questions since I intend to be a RV owner.

    - I am very interesting in having a Avion trailer, however, I can not find their official website. Is Avion manufacturer still existing?

    - I live in a cold, harsh place during winter. Could somebody recommend me brands, models for both truck campers and travel trailers which you think is a true four season camper (I mean the insulation is REALLY GOOD)?

    Thanks.

    Hi dkiang57, a Big welcome to the forum, Avion is now owned by Fleetwood RV, has been since the late 80's check: www.fleetwood.com There are a number of excellent rv built in your country that have good insulation for the cold, one that comes to mind is Bigfoot they built slide-in campers, TT's and a Class C MH, if you do a search on google for Canadain RV manufactures you shold get many choices. In the US slide-ins that are worth looking into would be Artic Fox, Lance, Alpenlite, Sunlite. Hope this helps some, you may get more response posting this on the general forum. Good Luck :) :laugh: :cool: :bleh: :approve:

    avion is a great fifth wheel but they are not made anymore, according to fleetwood, they quit making them after the 9/11 tragedy, they said they were very high price fifth wheels and the public was buying cheap, they are now making a new one that has taken the place of the avion. look up fleetwood.
