New 5er's

We are buying our first 5th wheel camper. We are not new to the world of camping but usually did tent camping. We did own a RV once but never had the opportunity to use it for camping. This will be exciting for me and the wife now that we are retired to go camping just to get away.

Yes, the word "Retired" is thing of beauty.

Time to go at your pace...

What 5ers are you looking at?

I am buying a 1975 Arabian 30' 5th wheel. I know it is old but well taken care of and no leaks. I am getting it at a real bargain and planning on remodeling it before we camp with it.

Hi folks! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join us!

Hope you find the right rig for your needs! We pulled a 5er for 10 years before getting the MH last year. We loved it!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Hi I am a Navy vet as well. I was in the Navy in 1982 to 1985 on the U.S.S. Mount Baker out of Charleston S.C. MM3 Henry here when I got out. I went to Lebanon when we were bombing that area in 83.

I have not renovated it yet. In fact I have not even gotten it home yet. The lady I am buying it from is storing it until I finish paying for it next wed.
