Quantum

Probablly, back then I was a wood framed aluminum skin nut, too busy working on my little homebuilt helicopters to really pay much attention to trailers. Harold

:o Hey Harold Dean,

[b]Casita has never made a fifth wheel. Did you mean [b]Scamp?[/quote]

Mary, I realize this is not a trailer, but it is the retirement home I said I would post. More info is available off site at my email harolddean61911@yahoo.com

* * * * * * Thank You, Mary. *It has taken me a long time to make up my mind just exactly what I wanted to settle in with in the long run. *I have had aluminum wood framed trailers in various lengths and categories. The pull behinds, I always had trouble living with the swaying, no matter what type of sway control I used. I liked the 5th wheels because the sway was not nearly as noticeable and could be corrected by an application of the accelerator. *I have towed with nearly everything, and next to my 86 supercab F150, I liked how the Ranger towed, (Ihave had about 10 of them so far). *A friend had one of the casita 5th wheelers and I liked the way it handled, but don't particularly care for the bubble shape. *I like my corners more squared. *I got a chance to tow one of these with my 85 ranger 2.8 V6, 5 speed and I absolutely loved it. *I was delivering it for a gentleman in California. *I never saw another one until this one came up on E Bay and I jumped on it. *There was only one other bidder to contend with, and obviously he did not know what it was or he would not have given up so easily. *I think I will be happy now for quite awhile with this setup. *I like the smaller trucks and trailers since I do not intend to live in in the rest of my life, just a vacation now and then. *I will append a picture to this note later and show you what I intend to live in as soon as I retire (uncertain). I am 64 and in excellent health, just UFO (ugly, fat and old) with a very good job and I may not retire for awhile. *Harold

* * * * * * I'm just going to add my voice to the chorus here: *Thanks for reposting, and it is a cool looking trailer. *

I hope somebody (soon) comes up with more info on its manufacture. *Perhaps you being here will attract another Quantum owner. *A trailer this nice surely would withstand the test of time - even if not many were made, surely there are several still around! *(Yours is absolutely beautiful!)

>>was a wood framed aluminum skin nut

Harold, we're gonna have to wash your mouth out with soap for even admitting that!

Also ... in the spirit of all of us molded fiberglass nuts getting along, you gotta remember that some of us really, really, really, love the bubble shape ... really!

It would have been better had you said "I'd prefer the shape of the Quantum."

But, still, if you're fiberglass, you're family!

OK I'll go along with it and stand corrected, "The reason I purchased the Quantum 5 is that I prefer the shape of it's structure more so than thatof the eggs", however if someone wants to gift me with one I have been a life member of nra (never refuse anything). Harold

That really cool deck and sun room on the back of that really nice looking Quantum.

She hasn't replied yet, but I expect she will notice. I really don't care for either egg shaped nor square houses as you can tell. Harold

Based on your photo Harold, it looks like oven knobs and an oven door are below the counter with the basket. It appears that the Quantums may have an oven but no stove top - unless the burners are camouflaged by the counter top.
I guess I was thrown by the Quantum for sale in California. It doesn't have a stove. The dealer says it weighs 2500 pounds and is 7ft 6in high by 8ft wide. Axle weight 2000 (1000 each axle) and hitch weight 500 pounds. Has bath with shower, sink and potti, furnace, no AC and no stove.

Glad you get to experience the deluxe package. An oven and 3 burners - wow!.

Aesthetic attractions differ from person to person. Actually, your 5th wheel looks to me like an ovoid that had the lower front quadrant removed.

The trailer does have a 3 burner stove with oven according to the previous owner's wife. She says it worked real well. The Quantum in California must not be the same type as this one is 17 feet long, weighs about 1700 pounds, and I suppose from the axle location, I can't see the hitch weight being over 300 pounds. Don't forget the A/C either in the deluxe package.

The dealer in California impressed me as the kind of salesman that you need to follow behind with your own tape measure and scales.

Meaning: I got the impression that if he didn't know the answer to a question, he would make something up that he thought was a reasonable response. Buyer's Beware!

Harold, if your weights are accurate, I suspect the California Quantum weighs in at about 1,500 pounds on dual axles. The hitch/tongue weight, depending on distribution, is anybody's guess. 500 pounds - no way, Dude.
