Here is my new one:


It is a 2009 Jayco Eagle 351RLSA. 39' long, 3 slides (two of them opposing, so it has a very open floorplan)... Only been out in it twice so far but then again, we got it in October.

Here are some other shots of it:

If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen. - quote by Samuel Adams

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end

Nice pics. I'm going to be in the market for a toyhauler sometime next year (if my job comes through for me). I'd be glad to buy one from a TDG member with a dealership.

This is our first 5th wheel and is quite an upgrade from the pop-up we have had. It is a 98' model Shasta Phoenix and is a 28' bunkhouse. We got it right before Thanksgiving at a dealer in Ohio. It is in excellent condition and does have an 8' dinette slide on the opposite side. I thought we did all right and picked it up for $4800. Everything works well and it is very clean.

We wanted to try a used 5th wheel for a while to make sure it is what we want, be can already tell when the time is right we will upgrade to a larger newer one. This is the only pic I have right now because we have not had it out yet. We can not wait for Spring though to start camping.

On edit I found another one that shows the slide.

Thats what we did to start out too. Bought a used one real cheap, found out we loved, used it for 3 or 4 years and then sold it to for what we bought it for. Win, Win. Most of the time its always better to buy campers used if you can find what you want anyways because of how fast they depreciate after one year, I got lucky went in 1/2 hour before they closed on a Sat. in late September and walked away with a new one pretty much at cost.

Bill, I will probably do the same. It is nice to think about 35'+ rigs, but for a single guy, it is almost over kill... Natty I like the bull elk checking your rig out.. adds a nice touch. Where is that at?

early '99 converted to late '99 F-350 dually, 4x4, 4 door, long bed, 6 speed. Midwest transmissions 05+ zf-6 transmission with their short throw shifter and SB clutch. Rosewood 180cc with 80% nozzles, Termy modded 17* HPOP, International bellowed up pipes, fs-2500, DP Tunes. A few other things here and there...
dually club member.. Why replace 5 tires when you can replace seven? I like my training wheels...

I live in mine full time at the Grand Canyon National Park. I work on the natural gas powered busses, so I get to live inside the park. I get deer, elk, coyotes, etc. passing through regularly. I think it's pretty cool. I like it.
