I can't find any info re weights and dimensions of the various units of the Mobile Suite. Do I have to contact the company directly? To my knowledge, it's the only 5er company that doesn't provide such basic information on their web site.

You're right, their Brochure shows a lot of info and pics, just no specs! I wonder why they'd do that?


Try Googling the specific MS model and on the dealers website there are specific specs such as weights, lengths, etc. Good luck!

Here is some data:
43 footer

DRV

Weights will vary greatly, depending on chosen options...suffice it to say they are very heavy. Our 37' loaded, with granite option, washer/dryer is 19K pounds.

Drv is one of the few high end 5th wheel manufactors that will customize a 5th wheel. As said abov there are many different floorplans. We oreded 2010 Mobile Suites 38 RSSB 4 and used three different floor plans and did remove a window and change some cabinet doors etc. However when we picked-up in Aug there among the paper work and manual was a sheet showing the weight at each wheel and the total weight. I would recomend you contact Drv and they can tell you the exact weight when delivered. GBY.....

The specifications you are looking for are listed under floor plans. Click Floorplans than on Specs

I bet a dealer will tell me that I can pull one of those 43 footers with my 1993 Nissan short bed pickup. By the way, this pickup has a 4 cylinder and automatic. I MIGHT have to use a slider hitch!!

I pulled this info from another forum site...the basic model numbers are equal to the length, give or take less than a foot....

The Select Suite will be the lightest capacity rig
The Mobile Suite will be the middle capacity rig
The Elite Suite will be the heaviest capacity rig

32TK3 Telescoping Kitchen Triple Slide
32RS3 Rear Sofa Triple Slide
36RS3 Rear Sofa Triple Slide
36RE3 Rear Ent. Center Triple Slide
36TK3 Telescoping Kitchen Triple Slide
38RL3 Rear Lounge Triple Slide
36RSSB3 Rear Sofa Side Bath Triple Slide
36TKSB3 Telescoping Kitchen Side Bath Triple Slide
36TKSB4 Telescoping Kitchen Side Bath Vanity Triple Slide
38RLSB3 Rear Lounge Side Bath Triple Slide
38RSSB3 Rear Sofa Side Bath Large Kitchen Triple Slide
38TKSB3 Telescoping Kitchen Side Bath Triple Slide
40DB3 Double Bedroom Triple Slide

Again, you can probably forget looking for weights posted on the internet site, there are too many variables...instead, look at the axle and tire specifications to get an idea of their max possible carrying capacity.

Try searching on www.doubletreervsuites.com and clicking on specifications.
Still can't find actual lengths, weights etc.

Good luck.
