Hello everyone,

We purchased a lightly used 2005 Cruiser 5th wheel last September. We (young family of 4) are not rookies to the coach world. We have owned three bumper pull travel trailers, a pop up trailer a cab over camper and a Holiday Rambler class A motor coach which we traded in on the 5th wheel. We should have gone with a 5th wheel the very first time but hey, it's a learning curve.
The model we purchased has the rear bunks/room for the kiddo's two girls which is wonderful. No more pulling out the couch sleeper and breaking down the dining table every evening and putting it all back up in the morning. We tend to camp for a week at a time or longer if it is hunting season. I love the way the 5th wheel pulls with my F-350 diesel and it's maneuverability is second to none over any travel trailer we have owned. Guess this got a bit windy. I look forward to interacting with you all.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I look forward to cruising the forum for hints and tricks. I'm interested in installing a solar power charger to reduce my generator run time.

Thanks again everyone.
I want to go camping and ignore my adult problems.
