Square trailer and round house!

:cblob

Glad you got your house photo posted, Harold! (Is it a Del-Tec?)

Pete's comment about Suz noticing the deck ''on the back of the Quantum'' is, I think, a veiled reference to an earlier thread with a picture of the chimney ''on'' his Burro. Right, Pete? :laugh

I thought he was referring to the deck on the house. It started out as a Topsider plan, but was changed to suit me. My first project afte retirement. Harold

Quantum 5

We happen to own one of these that we are restoring. Harold, you are very lucky to have found such a nice QUANTUM. When we bought ours we found the orig. sales brocure with specs. on this trailer and thought we would share. The dry # is 2750, gvwr is 4000, the hitch # is 390, the pin height is only 38" so if you plan on pulling with anything taller than a standard mini truck you will have to flip the axels to the bottom of the springs. These were made in Santa Ana Calif. by Columbia Coachworks. By the way folks there is a 3 burner under the fold up counter and an oven under. Have fun with your new "pulltoy".

5th wheel hitch

Hi Harold. Great looking 5th wheel..only 1700lbs, my scamp weighs 3200, You will not regret buying a 5th wheel, no weight distribution hitches, or any of the other type hitches, just hook up and go. I have had mine at 70mph with no problems.plus you have an extra axle. I know you will enjoy it. Paul Smith Orlando Fl.

The stove top look just like the one in my 17' Boler. It has a fold
down cover over the burners and the knobs look the same.

Quantum 5 fifth wheel trailer

Picked up the trailer on July 10th. Spent 2 nights in the Cherry Hill campground in Laurel MD. Toured DC with the grandson, went to the southern tip of VA where I was in the service. across the Chesepeake bridges and tunnels, up the Eastern shore of VA, (between Chesepeake and the Atlantic for those not familiar), 2 nights with the son in Philly, 2 hours west of Philly the next morning, alerted to new assignment in Clovis NM, left yesterday and am now in Quartzsite AZ overnight with water pump out on the truck (50 mile tow in(wish they would figure out an early warning failure device for these types of troubles as everything under the hood looked ok when I checked in GlobeAZ earlier) and will pull out again in the morning for Quartz Hill CA at the other son's. Trailer pulls wonderfully (don't even know it's behind the Ranger until you are on new blacktop uphill against the wind (coming up out of the Salt River canyon in AZ) seems to need a little repair, (soft floor, broken plastic latches, etc, typical for an 81, AC works beautifully). Still a very good buy as far as I am concerned. Picture posted in Port Charles VA on way back up peninsula. Harold

rename your photos without the SPACES in the text, then repost them.

Quantum 5 fifth wheel trailer

Back in Illlinois after the trip. Quartz Hill California, August 14, one month from east coast. Back through 4 corners area (will post pictures later along with picture of data plate) Picture to be posted at top of Wolf Creek Pass Colorado, 10,280 feet. Trailer pulls beautifully, truck does not overheat, but driver does due to AC cutting out when temperature goes to the high side of normal . No one makes a bigger radiator, so will probably relocate the condensor to behind the cab with an electric fan (can't take the heat anymore).Trip would have been a lot more enjoyable if it was simply a vacation and not a work assignment. Will probably not travel again until fall. Still think it's the best deal I have ever made. Will post pictures tomorrow after I dig out the camera . Family calls it my 4 wheel suitcase. Harold
