    Hi there,

    We are in the US and just bought a 5th wheel to ship home to uk.
    We are wondering if anyone has had experience of shipping a truck home from the US for the 5th wheel. i.e. would it be easier/cheaper to get one here while we are here that has the 5th wheel hitch? Or are they easy to get and buy at home in UK? Does anyone know the kind of price in the UK we could expect to pick one up that is second hand but able to do the job? I know that is like saying how long is a piece of string - but hoping you guys might have some info for us. Greatly appreciate it.

    Stella and James Oakey

    Totally agree, defo Dodge and I paid good money for mine but it was in mint condition with very little miles, 2500 HD Larmine Quad Cab 4x4 5.9l Cummins, Auto with tow pack and it pulls my 4.2t 5er with ease, you can quite literally forget its on the back. There's a lot more choice in the states so you'll have a much greater chance of getting the one you want
