Trailer: Quantum-5 5th Wheel (by Contempo)
Posts: 18
We have had two deaths in the family, so I apologize that I have not been able to answer your questions in 10 whole days. In the future, I would appreciate if you changed the tone of your communications. I am as interested in selling as you may be in buying, and I will continue to respond to everyone's emails, PM's, and calls as I am able.

Yes, this trailer and truck are still available.
Yes, I am willing to separate if needed.
To the best of our knowledge, there is ZERO damage to the trailer, and no repairs are necessary except perhaps a new fridge, as it is the original gas fridge and is a little tired.

During the interim I have been in contact with, likely, the only person that actually owns two of these and has talked at length with the 92 year old owner of the coach works company that built the Quantum 5. I've learned so much more about the Quantum 5 from that conversation.

My main concern after learning more about the construction of the Quantum 5 involves the condition of the floor near the sink, door, and around the fender wells. The damage, which is common in these areas cannot be seen from underneath the trailer but can be quite extensive requiring a complete rebuild of the floors for support. Have you checked those areas and what is the condition of the floor?

Please feel free to reply by email (the same one you replied to previously) or here on the forum. Thanks very much. I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm truly sorry to hear of your family losses and that you feel that there is some sort of "tone" to my attempt to follow up with you. It's very understandable,now, that you may have had little time to reply.

But, since I had not received any additional emails or a call to the phone number that I had provided; I thought my multiple emails were going in your spam folder.

I'm sure you will have success in selling the Quantum 5. All the best to you from me in Texas.

Thank you. Please let me know if you are still interested, and I will give you a call later this week. Otherwise, I will probably just ebay the camper combo. Thanks,

Haven't been on here in a while. Very interested in your combo. Do you think you could pull a 17' Crestliner behind it with a possible change in tow vehicle? I noticed on another board where you had posted that someone towed a Bass Tracker behind theirs.
Also, tell me about the Comanche. I am not familiar with this vehicle, how many miles, rust, etc.
Thanks much.

There is about 130,000 miles on it. It has a brand new radiator, oil changes with syn blend every 3k miles, and no rust. It is our third Comanche, and we love them for their durability, simpleness, and extremely inexpensive parts (shares mechanicals with the XJ Cherokee, so parts from most cherokees fit, or can be made to fit).

It would have no problem towing the Crestliner. With a class III hitch it is rated to tow 5000 pounds, and all info I see on the crestliner indicated a 1050lb weight (plus trailer).

Merlin,
Thanks much for the information. Hubby and I discussed it and decided now isn't the right time for us to get this type of rig. Good luck getting it sold, looks like a nice outfit. Have a pleasant Thanksgiving.

Good morning.

I hope your Thanksgiving was successful and this message finds you well and satisified.

About your Quantum 5 sir, I wonder if I could ask a couple of newbie questions please?
How does this compair with a Bigfoot fifth wheel?
Can I tow this with a 2001 F-150 and what sort of hitch would I need to make this work?
Who made it and can I find spare parts for it?
What do you expect to fail next? (this is not a comment on the condition of the trailer, just asking to prepare myself for what eventually will happen to a used trailer)
Are you going to place this combo on ebay and will the price remain the same?
Will you entertain an offer for the trailer?

I'm very new to this RV thing but I want to make smart purchases. I live on a fixed income and thus the interest in such a trailer.

Sincerely,

Regarding your 17 foot trailer

Hi Merlin;


Regards your 17 foot, tandem axle camper with fiberglass sides and top (makes it very light and easy to tow, only ~1,700 lbs). It has two beds, fridge, shower, bathroom, kitchen sink, stove, microwave, and dining area. Interior is in amazing shape... like new.

Do you think I could tow correctly with a 2001 F-150? It's a really nice extended cab with the Larido package. Or are the sides of the bed too tall? I can measure them if that would help...

I know nothing of RVs but since I began looking it has become apparent I need a small two person fifth wheel trailer to pull behind my truck to make sense of the trips I have on the planning board.

If you still have this trailer I would like to make an offer for it (however please remember I'm on a fixed budget and I know nothing about the costs of such trailers so treat me gently and thank you )

Please respond when you have time - I'd like to come out to Colorado and pick it up so I can start fooling around with it, making it more shipshape for my needs.

PS. I bought the F-150 specifically to tow a small trailer just to save money on lodging and meals as well as having a safe place to stay out in the woods which I plan on doing a lot of this coming year. My wife only has two years before she retires as well and that is our goal.

Looking forward to hearing from you (I tried to PM you and that didn't work so here we are again sir. )

Sincerely,

Hi again Merlin;

I just noticed your posted photos... What happened to that poor dog???
Did he get hit by a car or is this just "maintenance" on an older dog???

When I saw that I immediately looked to my son's dog, a chocolate Lab - almost three years old. I watch him while my son works, at the firehouse as a paramedic/firefighter. He's on 24 hours two days a week and he needs someone to mind "Woody".

We had great fun this last summer with lots of play time in the back yard and he is a really fun dog. Great with the grandkids as well as a wonderful watch dog.

I still say given the choice of a human stranger and a dog - I'd take the dog anyday.

Looking forward to hearing from you sir...

Sincerely

I may have to cler out my PM's..

That's my pup, 5yo golden... torn ACL surgery.

The F150 has the strength to tow it, but height may be a concern. That's one of teh reasons I was looking to sell as a combo. If the F150 is 4x4, it will probably sit too tall.

I will PM you my number...
