I picked up this older 5th wheel....needs some work, but it was cheap.
Thanks! Towed it surprisingly well for only having 3.08's….barf.
I have to admit that it is not my trailer however - My father's Chevy store also sells trailers and we took this one in on trade. My girlfriend and I had a camping trip planned about a month before this came in, so the timing was perfect. The thing is in beautiful condition and had a perfect layout for the two of us. The couch pulls out to make a bed for kids too…later on though! I'm still a kid myself :lol:. As a matter of fact it is still sitting on the lot I'm surprised no one has picked it up yet…if it's there much longer it might find a new home with me ….I loved it.
It was the first time I've ever camped out of anything besides a tent and I'm afraid it has ruined camping for me. I might as well just buy it and call it a day.
This summer I plan on adding a leveling kit on the truck so I can clear 35's, while adding 4.10's. I imagine that will help a lot. I'll probably do some airbags as well, I've read some good reviews on here about them.
Someday I hope to save enough pennies to throw a supercharger on :glasses:
Thanks again for the compliment!

Nice looking rig!
Here is our 27 foot Forest River Sierra bunkhouse model. 30 foot from bumper to hitch. I am currently using it as a home away from home. I work about 2 1/2 hours from home, so I stay in the trailer in an RV park during my work week, then come home for the weekends.
Really? There aren't more members on here with camping trailers? Tent trailers? Travel trailers? Fifth wheels? Even if you use a flat bed trailer to put a tent on it while camping?
Come on everybody! Show 'em if you got 'em!
Wife and I picked this up last September. We tow with a '11 3500HD EXT CAB 4X4 equipped with a aluminum flatbed from Hillsboro.
That's a beauty of a trailer.
