    From travel trailer to 5th wheel

    A couple months ago on a rainy Saturday my wife and I got bored and went to visit our local RV dealer. In the showroom was a 29RS we went thru it and were really impressed. We weren't looking to move up to a 5th wheel but the wheels got turning. Thought the 29 would be it then we really took notice of the 303 and then it was back and forth, which one?
    Well, this Monday we're supposed to drop off our TT and pick up our new 303. We're really looking forward to getting out and enjoying it.

    Congratulations and Welcome to the Family, I think it was a smart move. You will enjoy the benefits of towing a 5er. I know I do.
