Fifth-Wheel Gold Strike: KZ RV Durango Gold G358RPQ

AWARDS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING for KZ-RV’s Durango Gold and Fleetwood RV’s Frontier. Raising the bar for fifth wheels and diesel pushers alike, their innovative designs and luxurious features are turning heads—including ours. But what’s to come is even better. With a turn of the page, their next chapter starts with you.

Setting the Bar for Life Unbound

KZ-RV’s Durango Gold forges new standards for fifth-wheel comfort.

THE SEARCH FOR GOLD is an old story, but the thrill of discovery is always new. And recently, we have KZ to thank, because the Durango Gold is expertly crafted—we could even say gilded—with dozens of the details that we’re constantly looking for in a fifth wheel. From its comfort-insulating features to its luxurious design, we see  why RV News named the Durango Gold the 2022 Full Profile Fifth Wheel of the Year. Comfort starts with insulation, no matter which season you’re weathering. And here, the Durango Gold shows its mettle. The all-weather insulation package includes: an insulated roof; insulated front and rear walls; an enclosed, insulated, and heated underbelly. (Heck, even the basement is heated.)

All of which means that the heating system (with its 40,000 BTU furnace) and the Whisper Quiet cooling system (with its two 15,000 BTU ducted-roof ACs) keep your fifth wheel at whatever temperature standard you set. Because a life unbound shouldn’t be at nature’s fickle mercy. (Get an amen from Truma on Page 43.) The Durango Gold’s cleanly minted features allow you to enjoy the great outdoors—and the great indoors. Its rear patio includes a three-season patio door, step, awning, and railing to enjoy the backyard of your choosing. Just inside, you can recline in front of the 65-inch LED TV and 40-inch fireplace, and get a heated massage (courtesy of your theater seats). Even cleaning up is easy, with a central vacuum that stores out of sight. What you will see though is the 70- by 80-inch walk-around, electric-tilt, king-sized bed (even if you don’t see the storage underneath). On the road, it’s your golden ticket to great sleep.

Controls as Tight as Fort Knox

Keeping control of your systems and comfort settings should be easy. (Like super easy.) With the KZ Engage, powered by OneControl, it is. From a screen by the entrance door, you can monitor tank and battery levels, control slide rooms, leveling systems, awnings, interior lighting, HVAC controls, you name it. With Wi-Fi prep and Connect Anywhere, you even get access by mobile device.

Mother Lode in the Galley

A lot happens around those countertops, and the Durango’s design gives you plenty of space with all the kitchen features you need: a kitchen island; pantry; four-door, 18-cubic-foot fridge; stainless steel dishwasher; microwave; oven; and large dining table. Modern farmhouse cabinetry circles the space with storage. The drawers are even made from Baltic birch.
