    We are planning to go FT and for the job we are looking at a fifth wheeler. We have upto $40k to spend on the unit and surplus for a mule truck to pull it with. We have seen dozens on the Internet and read equally dozens of reviews, some good and some not so good and even contradictory postings.

    However, we need a comfortable 5th wheeler that has a track record and opined by those that have one of them. What can you guys suggest?

    Hey Englishmen, welcome to the forum. With $40 K I would look for a quality high end used 5th Wheel or a medium priced model from one of the below named manufacturers. In my opinion I would stay away from Forest River products. That's JUST MY OPINION. How large of a 5th wheel trailer are you looking for?


    Carriage
    HitchHiker
    Excel
    SunnyBrook
    Gulf Stream
    Montana
    Are good bets. :)
