My wife and I met camping 42 years ago and after 34 years of
marriage we feel we now have the RV of our dreams.
Several years ago I started our personal debate of which was
best to have, a motor home or a fifth wheel. </span>Along with that debate came the question of the brand. </span>About 2 years ago we had narrowed our
search hesitantly to a fifth wheel, really not sure if we made the right
In June of 2011 I saw an advertisement for a company that I
had never heard of called Redwood.
</span>Being a critic of RV’s I took it on myself to start researching this
unit since I hadn’t made a purchase yet even though I had my search narrowed to
2 companies. </span>At first glance I
liked what I saw but knowing most of the information was in all probability fluff,
I dismissed most of the information while at the same time confirming what I
had read. </span>
While on a business trip I came across a dealer that had a
Redwood sitting next to the road.
</span>After a brief tour of the trailer I was impressed even though the dealer
or salesperson had very little knowledge on the product. </span>When returning home, I started an
extensive critiquing of the Redwood and the more I looked the more I was
impressed. </span>In January of 2012 I
took my wife to an RV show in Kansas City, MO about 6.5 hours from our
home. </span>While there I looked at all
of the RV’s I was considering, with Redwood being one of them. </span>After grilling Rich Vessels, a salesman
from Lifestyles RV and Redwood factory representative Andy Wesdorp, we place
our order for a 36RL with full body paint.
We’ve now had a chance to truly critique our trailer and
even though my wife and I have been around RV’s for all of our adult lives, we
feel like we’ve bought the best value for our money. </span>The fit and finish are as near perfect as I’ve ever seen in
any RV, regardless of price. </span>The
interior and exterior has been well thought out and considered. </span>This unit is very predictable and pulls
like a dream. We now feel comfortable with our decision to buy a fifth wheel
instead of a motor home and we’re thrilled with the Redwood. </span>
The only problem we’ve had so far with our Redwood is the
lack of rest. </span>These trailers get a
lot of attention and we’ve given several tours at the campgrounds. </span>So if you want a good quality high-end
fifth wheel, I strongly recommend a Redwood. </span>But if you’re shy, you might want to consider a lesser brand
because the Redwood gets a lot of attention that sometimes gets comical.
