I alllllllllllllllllllmost ordered one of these: https://dynamaxcorp.com/class-c-motorhomes/isata-5/30FW/3694 It's a factory 4x4 RAM 5500 platform "Super C". They have a few other floorplans, but the 30-foot is the only one that leaves much GVWR available for gear and trailer tongue weight. The paint/graphic schemes are a little busy:
That was one of the main reasons I was going to custom order, to cut out all the "splash" graphics, brand/model insignia, etc. I even test-drove one, and I was super happy with how it drove. Honestly, it wasn't much different than driving a pickup so I think anybody's significant other could drive it easily in a pinch. It had lots of upsides, like being factory 4wd (vs. an aftermarket conversion), the tried 'n true Cummins, easy to work on and cheap maintenance (just being a RAM 5500 platform, as compared to the diesel pusher I had at the time), and a definite "cool factor." Also, being only a 30-foot it would have got us into some really small/tight parks on non-toy trips.
The downsides were pretty standard for a shorter C-style RV: very small holding tanks, no real separate bedroom (just a curtain around the bed) and much less "entertaining" space. My plan was to custom-order an enclosed trailer with a fresh and grey water holding tanks that we'd tow with it on toy-trips to supplement the small holding tanks on the RV. All of our non-toy trips are at parks with hookups, so we only boondock in places like G, Moonrocks, etc. and would have the trailer with us. I had planned to use a macerator pump setup to move the grey over. Black tank capacity I think would have been fine on the RV, and I certainly had no intentions of moving that.
I had even spoken to Kelderman about outfitting the RV with their air suspension front and back, but they weren't sure the rear would work (the front is a 100% the same as a 5500 truck, but in the rear you have the RV body and storage cubbies down low tight to the frame where a lot of the brackets hooks up). Obviously I was going to black out the wheels and bumper, put bigger M/T type tires on it (I even was looking into big super-single rims so I could run a big military single tire front and rear, way better for sand than duallies) etc.
I still really like these things, and I kiiiiiiiind of wish I had just gone for it. But the real deal-breaker came down to cost. Real-world price on the 30FW is about $150k. The custom-ordered trailer would end up like $20-30k. I'd be another $10-30k into modding it (depending on whether or not I went with the Kelderman stuff) etc. All-in you're talking an easy $200k+.
For that $200k, what would I have been getting:
A 4wd rig
Somewhere to sleep
Somewhere to cook
Somewhere to shower and use the bathroom
Space for some toys
I still had my HD pickup that I wasn't getting rid of either way (I just use it too much for other things), so I had a "light bulb" moment where I looked at that list and said "wait, a 4wd rig I can sleep/cook/shower/etc. in that fits some toys sounds a lot like a 5th Wheel TH behind my truck..."
Now, it's not really an even comparison that way, because the trailer I would have gotten for the 30FW would have fit 2 SxSs (a 2 and a 4 seater, which was what we had at the time) and any TH big enough for a 2 and 4 seat RZR was too big for a) my truck and b) the parks we wanted to go to. So I ended up buying a Genesis Envy 34A which fits just 1 toy, a 24' AL box trailer, and trading her '16 Jeep Grand Cherokee in on a '19 RAM 1500 for her (both are 5.7L Hemis).
I ended up spending more like $100k ($70k 5'er, $13k AL box trailer, prob 20-ish on top of the JGC to get the '19 1500) vs. $200k to get the same result. But wait, I have to take 2 vehicles on trips now. Yup, that's true. And why didn't I just get a non-TH if we're putting the toys in a box trailer anyway? Well, I wanted to still be able to do a trip solo and bring a toy. Plus the non-THs all had really small tank capacities.
So yes, if we want to bring 2 toys we bring 2 trucks, but we were pretty used to driving separately from our RV days anyway (it seemed we always had her drive too so we'd have a vehicle at camp). When we want to do a non-toy trip obviously we don't need the 2nd truck and still have a vehicle to drive around town. And on dirt trips where we just want to bring the 1 RZR (currently we have a XPT, the Revo sand rail, and a Teryx that's more of a utility thing than sport) we can just take one truck/trailer.
With the 5'er we have way more storage space, way more entertaining space, the King bed we didn't want to give up, and the private bedroom. So there are some def upsides there. Downsides are even this "34 foot" 5th wheel is 38' tip to tip, so it limits the very small parks on the coastline, as discussed we have 2 rigs to bring if we want 2 toys, and it's not as neat-o as the 4wd RV.
Anyway, that's just my experience. There are days I wish I had never sold the DP & Stacker. There are days I wish I had gotten the Isata 5. And there are a lot of days I am super happy with the space and simplicity of the 5'er. There are a million ways to "skin a cat" and every choice has its trade-offs.
