Howdy from Spanaway, WA

New to this forum and new owner of a 2003 Fleetwood Prowler 5th wheel. We have owned motor homes in the past but decided to try a 5th wheel. The trailer we purchased was used as an office at a used car dealer so there was very little use but as we have found very little maintenance.
A little background about my wife an I, we are both retired, my wife since 2004 due an on the job injury and my last day of work was 24/12/2014.(Merry Christmas to me!). She was a cook and I was a crane mechanic. As my user name suggests I'm building a 1953 m38a1 military jeep powered by a Kubota turbo diesel.
Other interests include shooting, especially hand guns, archery, sports bikes, and Jeeps. I have a gooseneck trailer for jeeps and have toyed with putting a pickup camper on the front, kind of a red neck toy hauler but mama was real keen on the idea.
My tow rig is a 2012 f350 powerstroke diesel with a BW hitch. We're using an Anderson ranch adapter on the trailer with good results so far. We towed the trailer around 1000 miles so far an no problems.
