New to me Fifth wheel

Alright fellas, the wife's on her way to go look at it, the banks already approved me on it for almost $20,000 and I've got the dealer talked down to $13,950, I hope the wife likes it. Dandy RV > Hidden > Inventory Details

That's an excellent deal and a great looking 5er! What are some of the specs on it? I see the two slides, what is the gross on the unit? I also see it has an extended pin box, which is a requirement for a short bed... Let us know what she thinks!

Raul,
Good luck on that. Toy haulers are quite expensive and even used are about the same price as some of the new ones... It also depends on how much "stuff" you need to bring along. I have owned both and the 5ers are much more stable when you're towing. I'd strongly suggest it, but that's a personal decision. Things to think about: lift, weight distribution, gross weight (rig and trailer), sway control, etc. Also, bear in mind that your F250 likely grosses out around 20,000. If your truck is 8,000, that leaves you with 12,000 for the gross on your trailer. That will limit your trailer choices. While some people tow more, insurance won't cover you if something happens...

Looks pretty nice.... The one pictured in my garage was new... The wife and I had been looking at various trailers for months... I finally just kinda made up "our" minds and told her I had already put the down money on it so we might as well finish the paperwork ... We'll be taking it up to the Grand Canyon next month...

I'm sure the Mrs. will like it... Simply put either a Riese or Husky 16k slider hitch in and you're good to go... I can't turn sharp enough in mine to get the trailer anywhere near the cab... Now reverse is obviously a different story but I've never had to have the slide to the rear when I was moving forward....

Keep us up to date...

Ken....

alright fellas, THANKS for the positive input, I've got a friend who's bought 2 used fifth wheels from this dealership and he's had good look out of both of them, he flat out told me that they don't sell used junk, not quit sure on the specs, I know it's 32' but don't know anything about the weight, Keystone doesn't make this model Sprinter any more and I have'nt seen any specs anywhere, I'll look inside the cabinet door when I go to get it (hopefully) and see what the sticker says

Just got off the phone with the salesman and he said the only thing visibly wrong with this unit is a hairline crack in the front sliding mirror door for the bedroom closet, if that's the only problem then I'm going to get it!
