Thinking about getting a new fifth wheel this year. Any recommendations?

Like myself I got a 2000 Jayco Eagle 296 FBS for the reason of the square tube frame that is double stacked. Heavier trailer but stronger for traveling dirt roads. The cabinets are real wood not fake like most low end RV's. Nice large 50 gallon water tank and 3 waste holding tanks 2 grey on black. Fiberglass body I like much more than the aluminum body. Nice large fridge. Bathroom is plenty big for even me. True queen size bed not RV queen.
Lipert frames are very known for being weak.
I spent better than 4 hours being trained by a nice guy at Camping World on how to judge construction of RVs. Then he showed us high end models new that where absolutely horrid. Cheap a$$ luan panel benches, crappy fake cabinets made from MDF board, etc. All considered high end model because of the name. So when I got him to show me RVs that where used he held out for the Jayco because it barely hit the let and had no price. I got it for $10,000 out the door. Wonderful RV. No issues at all minor repairs but nothing big yet.
Might b easier to just call me at 208-628-3645...
I'd call, but you are two hours ahead of me. And I don't want to wake you up of you go to sleep.
