I bought a brand new stellar about 15 months ago. Triple slide, super nice. Big 5th wheel. I wish I could tell you how flawless it's been but it's never even been hooked up to my truck.

Without a doubt go with a Genesis. If I could’ve justified the cost I would’ve actually gone with the ATC. Jim from VIP RV told me to stay away from Attitude.

The 2018 + Attitudes have a much better quality Lippard frame/ chassis. Very similar to the Genesis. I've owned both in recent years (2017 36CK and 2018 32DBG) and my main takeaways is  the Attitude has a nicer interior with colors and style, AC seems to be more balanced and work better with the lower ceilings.  The width of the slide is bigger and better placed so I could put my Funco in forwards (with paddles) or backwards with skinnies.

The Genesis has nicer exterior fiberglass, bigger basement/ storage area and has more 5er bed clearance for taller for lifted trucks. AC and heat was way off from balanced. The slide was positioned in a way I had to change tires and could only fit my car by backing it in.

Another lesson learned is the new gray fiberglass style is dumb, adds at least 10 more degrees over the white ones. Next trailer will be white for sure.

I purchased a new stellar (attitude) in 2014 , I can say the best part of owning it was the fact they are located in Riverside so I did not have to take it to a dealership for the inevitable warranty work. Made appointments and it was fixed quickly and correctly (kind of like ww back in the day).  The Lippard frame was junk, glad to hear they made corrections. The big 5ers need 3 axles IMO, Ive noticed some huge 5ers on tandem axles, kinda sketch. I went with the 34LKSG because it was rated at 15k lbs, I have a commercial license so it did not effect me but I wanted to feel confident when I sold it and it drove off in the hands of someone without a CDL. Oh and whichever you get dont accept 15" tires, 16" LT are the way to go. we had a couple in our group not even make an initial trip without blowouts / damage. :thumbup:

I just bought a Forest River Stealth and the build quality is very impressive. 17ft of storage.   https://www.giantrv.com/inv/2020-Forest-River-Stealth-FFSA3217G-Murrieta-FSL1692/#mainpic

The two units we liked were the  FR 3217 and the Attitude 3016. We like the quality of the Forest River over the Attitude.
