early 90s Teton 34' 5th Wheel, know issues?
Hey folks, in my plan to eventually get a larger trailer to use as home and switch the camper back to use for travel. As I was browsing the used trailer ads, I came across a 1991 34' Teton 5th wheel with the one big wall slide.
Odds are the trailer is far too big to move with my current 3/4 ton truck, but I have friends with a dually 1-ton that has a 5th wheel hitch.
My interest comes in the fact that the current asking price for the 5er is $6500, which is probably a bit high, but the fact that it was in the 4 digit range for its size was what got me interested.
So, now to the main question, were there any big problems, issues that were known to crop up with the older teton 5th wheels? Do they use 50 amp or 30 amp service? I haven't had a chance to go south and look at it yet, given that its 60 odd miles away.
Personally, I'm more inclined to get a 24-30' TT to use as a home base, because I simply need to get a brake controller and LDH to pull it with the truck, so I could use either the camper or the trailer if I wanted to for travel. Where as the 5er would need a second pickup truck.
But, for the price, that was a mighty nice looking 5er. And the big master bedroom would definitely be a plus.
