First 5th wheel

Hello, my wife and I finally bought our first 5th wheel camper. It's an old 1990 excel 24' in good condition for its age. I will be pulling it with my 2005 f350 CC LB DIESEL 4X4. Really looking forward to updating the trailer a bit and getting it on the road.

Thank you. Been driving commercial tractor trailers for 13 years and finally have a trailer that isn't a part of employment.

Congratulations! Nice looking trailer. Looks like you have plenty of truck to pull it. You must live in deer country.

Wow, that must have new decals and a good wax! From the picture it looks like showroom condition. Congrats and enjoy!

Thank you. I wanted something smaller and older for our first one. I want to be very familiar with them before I get a 30'+ newer model.

It is in really good shape. I bought it from the second owners who took really good care of it. I even have all the original manuals and warranty card.

Does anyone have a suggestion on changing out the individual crank landing gears for a tandem one? Those are going to drive me nuts.
