I have to guess the "Montana" 5ver is over 40 ft with several slides. The one reviewed in Trailer Life magazine cost over $200,000.00.

A bit large for my taste but they sell them.


Twenty six foot 2010 Dutchmen Lite pulled with a 2011 EcoBoost F-150 4x4.

Just right for Grandpa, Grandma and the dog.

Wow! you must be one LONG train when you're hitched. What's your total length, tow vehicle and trailer combined?


It stays at our seasonal site year 'round. Our Honda CRV is borderline towing it and we haven't tried [emoticon] When the dealer delivered it, they were using a RAM 3500 Dually Long bed. Our site is just about 60' long and the combo just fit in the site.

I would love to put enough weight in the bunk house to reduce the tongue enough so I could drop it on the ball of the CRV, take a picture and ask if my setup looks doable. The CRV can handle a tongue weight of 100 lbs, I wonder how much weight I would need in the bunk house to lower the tongue weight that low [emoticon]

I've put about 45,000 miles on my trailer. Tires were bald by 30,000. Finally did those rubber suspension equalizers around 40,000 miles, and it was good I did. The shackles were nearly worn through, with some having only an 1/8" of steel left at the edge of the bolt hole.

I saw a Spacecraft bumper pull that is 48ft long. 40,000lb GVWR and 7000lb tongue weight. Way beyond the limit of any dually. It was being towed with a Freightliner. No weight distribution hitch. Used a pintle hitch.

I assume the buyer was older or had mobility issues and so didn't want 5th wheel stairs?
