|Im looking to get a 5th wheel and am wondering what size I need to get to be legal in Ca. I have a V-230 ill be pulling behind.|
|I believe 65' combined length is the max.|
|You can go up to 75' if the center trailer is less than 28'6". |
Here is my set up and I am right at the 75'. Remember you need a full class A with a doubles/ triples endorsement. It is the only way to go our mobile condo is always set up and ready to roll. The next trip is Pine Flat.
|Thanks for the info. Ive been looking into the class A|
|We moved out of a class A into the 5er. |
#1 once camp is set up you have a launch truck plus you have a vehicle to do sight seeing or a store run.
#2 easy launch 4x4
#3 one vehicle to keep up. If the 5er sets for a couple of months in the winter its no biggie. The truck is my daily driver.
#4 we can still tow the Jeep to the desert
|the question is, can you back it up |
|We made a wrong turn going to Blythe at 11pm down some farm dirt road and had to back up 200 yards tough but do-able it only took 45 min. (dont listen to the GPS).|
|be careful when you fuel up!! almost got stuck trying to use a regular gas station. backing up in that situation sucked, so many things to hit or miss depending on how you look at it. i now use truck stops only!|
|Bryan, that's a crazy rig and you have gots balls! Do you also work full time as a semi driver? |
|That poor truck.|
|That set up is legal in Calif??????????|
|Evil - Duramax / Allison loves it (with a little help) |
Banks 6 gun, super cooler with exhaust brake
1000 ft lbs torq trans upgrage
DPF on the shelf
Kevin - Yes it legal but Im at the max length 75' and with a full load of fuel 100# under on max weight. There are a lot of trains out there and its easyer than you think to drive.

Ya maybe in a straight line. I don't know how you do it, that would eat my lunch. Do you ever have to back with that?
|That is so cool! |
I was just telling my wife that i have a wierd obsession with getting a kick out of driving vehicles that are loaded down just to see what they can do, Nice setup
what's the key for backing up?
|To back up..turn the wheel the way you want the tag(back) trlr to go. |
I need to get a hitch put on the back of my fifth wheel so I can do this also.
|Scott I'm sure your wife totally agreed you. lol |
"what's the key for backing up?"
I'm going to go ahead and guess confidence
