I am in a park in Florida for the winter. While walking I saw this hugh 5th wheel. Asked the owner about it. He said that he had Teton build it and it is the only one that is 48 feet long.

He pulls it with a Volvo truck.

Have any of you ever seen one this large before?

At least one that I know of was custom built at that length. We have a "customized" stock unit that measures in at 45' and we also pull with a Volvo. There are quite a few out there at our size too!

And a single rear wheel too! I can't believe that truck is loaded anywhere close to its safe capabilities!
The guys with the Volvos have got the right idea.

Someone posted pictures of a 5th wheel that was 56' long. Dont recall the mfg. but they were impressive.

I also recall something about an RV cannot exceed 400 sq ft before being classified as a mobile home (I believe) which changes the requirements of the truck, driver license and parking it. 48' and 8' wide is 384 sq ft without any slides, etc.

Here is the old thread. The item is gone from Ebay.

I think this is the rig that was for sale.

The Teton that was in our park had four axles.

Not with me driving it. But thanks for the heads up. I plan on a Monroe Kodiak C4500 in the future and keep the F-350 for a boat.
