    1. Hi Darren, most RV manufacturers build their own floorpans; more like mass-produce. There are a few select RV manufacturers who do build according to owner specifications. However, they are very pricy and build time is incredibly long. If you’re looking at building your own fifth wheel, check out New Horizons.
