Hello everyone. Bob and Pat Seal here. Been browsing the forums trying to learn all we can about 5th wheels before making our purchase. Live in Baton Rouge, but our second home, our little spot of heaven on the Mississippi Gulf Coast blew and washed away in Katrina. Had an 80ft mobile home...nothing left but the frame. Cannot go back with anything stationary, must be able to pull it out. So, while it seems that most RVers seem to upgrade and move up, we are downsizing to a 37ft 5th wheel...seems to offer us the most living room. Our rig will be stationary most of the time year round, only pulling out for high water or storms coming in. Have visited all the local dealers, but buying direct seems to give us the most bang for our buck. So many options! Still trying to figure out what they all mean and this forum has been a big help in making some decisions. And I must add that this forum seems much friendlier than others visited. Am nervous about retrieving our new baby from Indiana in Feb or Mar. Us southerners do not know how to drive in ice/snow, much less pulling a rig. Guess we'll figure it all out, but we'll be back to the forum with questions, I'm sure.
