From Hybrid 20' Trailer to 30' 5th Wheel

Had a 2011 Palomino 195SD mainly for grandkids. Just finished our 1st week with our 2016 Cougar X Lite 27RKS for DW & I. Have already towed it 375 miles, hitched & unhitched twice each, spent 2 nights in it, and backed it into a 12'X45' covered storage stall - that was a learning experience! Couldn't be happier so far...no problems noted and the f250 didn't break a sweat averaging 11.5-12 mpg depending on hills and windage. I'm going to have lots of questions for you "older" heads (my own balding head is well over 60)!

Not at all...knuckles are still white from my death grip on the wheel.

We did the same thing 4 years ago - Rockwood "ROO 23B" to a "Cougar Xlite 5th wheel 28SGS". As you said "just for the two of us". Learning curve was not bad - just a few white knuckle moments.
