Smile 2013 Montana Mountaineer 295RKD

First some history..We used to have a older Tent trailer, then we moved to a older TT . For 5 years or more we have just slept in cabins with the dream of buying a new trailer with all of our wants or needs. After three years of searching, we finally found the one we really like.

Congratulations! We moved from a TT to a 5th wheel and never looked back. Our travel trailer was very enjoyable but for me and the wife, the 5th wheel works so much better. For us, it is easier to hitch, much better towing, more efficient and effective use of space in the same length, and it gave me a solid reason to buy another truck (win-win-win)! Overall trailer length was our limiting factor as we have a small yard for storage.

This is a great site with alot of very helpful people who have information, insights and hints from real world, hands on experience. Most are not just guessing. Sounds like you have some solid experience so you will not have any problems.

Have fun in your new trailer and safe in your travels. Getting to where your going is part of the traveling adventure.

Congats on the new 5r. We have the same unit which we got about 1.5 months ago. We are still working with it. Do a search for my posts were I have discussed a few items we have done. Good luck with the new rig and enjoy.

PS
We put our hoses in a r'maid or sterilite container and store in the basement on the driver side . NeWe put our cord in the little storage box on the back right side above the water heater.

We just got out first TT. I keep hearing that we will someday have a 5er. Seems to be the norm for most.
