I don't get to leave messages much on this forum
because my wife and I are constantly traveling. We
have the 2005 29.5 LKTG HH2. One thing we notice when
we meet others in the RV parks, the first comment out
of their mouth is that HitchHiker is a quality 5er.
A good many of the people then go into their
dissatisfaction with the brand that they have. When
we press them into disclosing why they don't buy a
HitchHiker they usually mention that price is the
For us, it is better to pay a little more
and not have problems than to complain. We plan on
keeping ours for a long time. Rather than trade every
couple of years we are making improvements to ours. As
time goes on, we realize that there were some options
that we would now like, so we have been stopping by
the factory and getting improvements each year.
Last year you put on the Demco pin box. This year you will
add electric stabilizer jacks, shade screen over the
outside back window, ceramic toilet, and add
additional doors over the microwave. We also have
added improvements to the suspension at Morryde. Last
year they put on the IS suspension, and this year it
will be the disc brakes. While in Elkhart we are
going to add the Big Foot Leveling System.
We feel that the 29.5 LKTG is the perfect floor plan
for us. It has a very live-able plan while it is
short enough for easier maneuvering. We do get a
little jealous when we hear you talk about dishwashing
So I think that the HH is widely recognized as a
quality 5er. When we drive down the road we are
always looking at the RV dealers on the side of the
freeway to see if they sell HitchHiker. To me, it just
seems that you need more dealers. So many people seem
to just want to go to their local dealer and pick one
off the lot.
When I was planning my retirement I
spent a considerable amount of time researching what
RV we were going to buy. I am a Civil Engineer and us
engineers just love to plan. I determined that if we
were going to buy a fifth wheel it would be HitchHiker.
We ended up with the 29.5 based on liveability, cost,
and length. I didn't mention quality because that was
factored in when I say I would only buy a HitchHiker
and that was one of the prime reasons for putting it
on my list of one brand. We now have pulled the HH
more than 32,000 miles and it is still like we are in
a dream. We just love it to death.
