oldbutspry Posted January 12, 2017 Report Share Posted January 12, 2017 So yesterday we went to Camping World to spend some time looking at Fivers. We went once before but that time we only looked at the ones on the showroom floor which means we only saw one Pinnacle in the 35-40 foot range. Anyway, we had fun browsing and found some floorplans that are close to what we would want. The one thing that is really shocking to me is how much bigger they are in person. The pics on websites looked cramped but when we actually go in one they seem like a stadium! The ceilings are so high which makes them feel spacious. Of course, that must make them harder to heat but you can't get something for nothing. And BTW, we aren't really thinking we will buy at CW - it's just the biggest place nearby to view a bunch of models. So then I wanted to find the used Fivers for sale. Told the wife we should look at them so we can see what ours would look like after it isn't new anymore. And yes, that was a very different experience. I didn't pay any attention to years but there seemed to be a range of them around 5-10 years old. For the most part they looked ok but OMG were they stinky!! I suppose it's because there's no ventilation and they are closed up and stewing in their stench. One smelled like they saved money on grandma's funeral by tossing her under the bed and selling the trailer. We opened the door to that one and were like 'Nope! Not going in there!' Seriously, maybe a mouse died in the roof/walls or something? Does that happen much in RV's? And I'm not sensitive at all to odors - in fact, I would say I have very little sense of smell. Anyway, the upshot of our trip is that I realized we probably want a fairly new trailer and would probably prefer one that hasn't been lived in. Surely I'm not the only one that has experienced this?
