New Here

Hey there,

We are new to the forum, and returning to the RV life. We just bought a new tow vehicle and we are finalizing the purchase of a 5th wheel toy hauler. Most likely going to be the Voltage 4145.

I am really hoping to get feedback on the Voltage 4145 if anyone is willing to share.

Both our boys play hockey so we travel quite a bit for that, but we also want to get out and see more of the U.S.

Looking forward to learning and hopefully sharing as we move forward.

I would read all the posts because most issues are found across many models and not just the specific one you are considering.

I would say most issues relate to:

Suspension— will likely be fine on a brand new unit but can wear quickly, however I think much less risk on a three axle with weight spread across more than two axles.
Tires (cheap OEM)
Air conditioning (ducting primarily)—confirm adequate air volume at all vent locations, especially garage and loft bed as those areas can get hot!
Fuel tank gauges

Good luck.

When you find the rig you want. Get or do Pre purchase inspection on it, search google for the form. Then make sure everything is fixed before signing the paperwork.
