    Hi All,

    As you know I have been a fairly regular contributor on here for some little time now.
    Regrettably the time has come to sell the entire outfit, we are now going to focus our efforts on building our second home in Portugal so the 5'er is surplus to requirements.


    It is advertised here

    2009 Rockwood Ultralite Fifth Wheel & F250 Pick Up on eBay (end time 25-Dec-09 19:57:40 GMT)

    I think all the information is there, if anyone wants specific questions answering then feel free to get in touch, likewise if you want to come and view it then the telephone number is on the advert.

    Thanks all (I hope this is not contravening any site rules)

    Rob

    Good luck with the sale Rob. :thumb:

    I'd looked at loads of 5th wheelers, (before going the RV route), and this is the first one I've seen with the cream/stainless steel interior. Looks really good and hopefully will help to sell it.

    You'll miss that V8 purr!

    All the best,

    Paul

    the gross weight stated is the 5er ?
    what's the max gross weight permitted for the pick-up , and how big a trailer is permitted if it is used for that ?

    Correct it is.

    The GVWR for the pick up is 3500Kgs (downplated when imported......not by me I hasten to add)

    The GTM (Maximum Authorised Mass is 7500 Kgs)
    The maximum weight for the trailer would be currently 4000 Kgs but this could increase as the US GTW is 18000 Lbs (8180 Kgs Fifth Wheel) or conventional towing of 12500 Lbs (5681 Kgs) both/either of which would be achievable with a re-plate.

    I hope that helps

    Rob

    Suppose I am sorry in a way to hear this Rob,, I know how much we both corresponded with each other when we were both doing our thing with 5th wheels, and were both looking to do a fair bit of travelling..

    I wish you luck with the sale and luck in your new venture..

    Good luck & A Merry Xmas to you and your family..

    I have in the past driven large articulated vehicles and wonder if it can be right for someone with no experience to drive a 5th Wheeler on the roads with no training ? just because they have Grandfather rights on their licence :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    But he may have had experience in towing a caravan so towing a 5th wheeler is not that much different, i have done both and managed very well with the 5er :thumb:

    Actually it is just the same as someone with "Grandfather" rights driving large MH's I personally have experience with HGV's Class 3 and 1, But driving a 5er is kid's stuff at the side of a class 1 so I don't think a test would be necessary.

    If a test was required for any I would say a caravan because it is amazing how many you see with speed wobble and you can tell they are speeding up to try to correct it.

    Yes it would. One of the reasons why I was keen to stay below 8250Kgs. :thumb::thumb:

    Anyway, Grandfather Rights, what do you mean they would only have to be 29 to be able to drive automatically with the pre 1997 test.
