Chicago RV Show, Now We Know
Well, I have been talking about going to the Chicago RV Show in the last couple of posts and we did that on Saturday. We looked only at 5th wheels since that is what we plan to purchase when we get ready to retire in early to mid 2015. We saw high end, mid range and low end rigs. After reviewing the prices, floorplans, options and the specifications of all those we saw we have determined that the Sanibel 3500 is the one within our price range, has the specifications for full timing, the quality in construction and the floorplan we like the best. Now I'm not saying that this decision might not change in the future before we pull the trigger but I have been to the Chicago RV show for the third year in a row and the Grand Rapids RV show this year and we just have not seen another 5th wheel IN OUR PRICE RANGE that really meets our wants and needs like this one. Are there better rigs out there? I'm sure there might be but we feel like we have seen just about every manufacturer out there right now and for our money we like the Sanibel. I've searched a number of forums and the general consensus I have seen is "the best rig for you is the one that fits your wants and needs". This one does that for us. Going to Chicago and seeing the Sanibel again after our first impression in Grand Rapids confirms our sense of knowing. Working toward retirement and it won't be long.
