Looking for HELP

We're looking for a nicer 5th wheel with a floor plan very similar to what we have now.. See below...

We would like to find one in the 33' to 35' length range with the Bedroom steps on the curb side and the large shower...

We really love the 333MKS but know that there are trailers with better furnishings and fittings than the Cougar... and better suited for extended travel..

We're looking for our last trailer...

Javi, We like our Montana HC 305rl quite well. It has a nice size shower, it has the double door refrigerator which I like for extended time living in it, and the steps are on the curb side. There's lots of storage too. Might be worth a look. Happy shopping!

Javi, check out the Grand Design Reflection 327 RST. Great floor plan, great RV. Personal opinion, you don't need to step up to a Solitude unless you're going to full time in it. The Reflection is a beautiful RV and Grand Design has great insulation and build qualities. The AC is cold, cold, cold. I love my Keystone Alpine, but if I was going to get something different, I'd have a hard time not going Grand Design. You can get a Reflection for thousands less than a Montana and a Solitude for about the same price as a Montana. If you are in the mood for a road trip, we have one on the lot

We have the 305rl as well. Only difference is the kitchen slide is on the "patio" side of the trailer. That blocks the view out the normally better side of the camp site. But the HC 310 is basically the same except the kitchen slide is on the road side, which I think is preferable. I'm not too crazy about rear entertainment though.
The Alpine 3400RS might be a bit more luxurious with some nice standard equipment.
Either that or start looking at Artic Fox or Mobile Suites.
And ditto on the Grand Design. We almost bought that instead of the Montana, frequently wish we did.

I can't argue with anything that has been said so far. First of all you have what it takes to Tow what ever you like. Second of all the shopping for it can be a great experience. Finding what you want might be a little problem but it is still fun shopping. I really would cozy up to the solitude Or the Montana.

Thanks... we've been talking about this for almost two years now... We bought the 333MKS after a good bit of soul searching and driving allover Texas to look at many brands and models. The 333MKS was be best compromise considering out '12 F 250 XL, by the numbers it should have squeaked by... but after a couple of trips it became obvious that the trailer was pushing the truck instead of being pulled... A lot of that was because of the location of the storage (all in front of the axles)... The dry pin weight was very deceiving when compared to loaded... This forced us back to a dually.. unfortunately... just not before we bought the current trailer.

We had originally been drawn to a Brookstone which was a much upgraded trailer over the Cougar, but with a dry pin weight of over 3K I just couldn't pull the pin... The DW was more than a little disappointed by that, but after a while agreed to go with the 333MKS....

Again... not sorry we bought the 333MKS, its been a good trailer... it's just getting to be time to buy the LAST Trailer... It's about the LAST RUN, before we hang it up..

BTW... DW told me I misspoke... The bedroom stairs MUST be on the STREET SIDE...

Our 3600RS Alpine is similar floor plan. Like it so far. A little longer at 39'. Model is discontinued now but there are similar floor plans.

I really like the Reflections as well. DW wanted the washer/dryer hook-up which the Reflections didn't have. Wasn't a big deal to me but what do I know! The 3600 has a nightstand by the bed which is handy.

Everyone has different floor plans they find best for them. We enjoyed our Cougar 303 rls at just under 35'. Then we started staying longer periods of time. We found the Montana 370 BR fits our current needs best but is much longer than you are looking at. Montana High Country has a few you may want to explore.

Thanks... Yep we may be looking for an impossible dream... But we've found that anything over 35 feet locks us out of several of our favorite Texas parks.... It may be a pipedream and other than that length isn't a big deal... and weight is NOT a problem..
