Hello, my name is Maria, my husband is Jon. We live in Florida, but next summer we want to stay on the West Coast for 5 to 6 months.
Now we are looking for a 5th wheel in which we can also live year round if we wanted. Looked at  Mobile Suites, Holiday Rambler (Presidential Suite) and Carriage. Like them a lot. The dealers always say so much what we don't understand about walls and roof and A/C. So I thought: why don't I ask some folks who have experience with those RVs. They might know which one holds out the longest, as we want to retire in our new RV and then live full time in it. If someone could help us by stating what to look for or of what to be careful of. That would help a lot. Also, where do we get a good deal? We can go anywhere to buy it. Thank you for your help. Maria

!st off Welcome to the forum.  While not being a 5ver  lover, We like MH, from what I've viewed in the industry,  Holiday Rambler is very fine unit.  Not saying the others aren't, just been around friends that have the HR more so than the others.  Our neighbor here in PEM just sold his 30' HR and said if they buy another it will be an HR.  that to me is a pretty good Recommendation.  I know there are many others out their that are very good.  Others in the forum will chime in soon so good luck no matter what you choose, just get RVing.

Those are all excellent brands and I wouldn't concern myself about salesman's babble anyway. They are generally not knowledgeable and are only trying to convince you to buy their product anyway. Any of those will serve you well.

You might also look at these brands:

Newmar RVs
New Horizons
