1981 quantum 5 contempo
small 5th wheel
I made a big mistake I bought 5th wheel thinking I could just raise it to the height of my truck. Took to welding shop and they quoted me $1200 to raise to the height of my 3500 dodge cummins. That is not including the hitch I planned on putting on the back.I planned on towing tandem with my boat. That was the reason why I bought it. When towing tandem total length has to be under 65 feet in AZ. Welding shop said it will make the trailer top heavy and It is very extreme of raising that high. Welding shop said will need to be raised 12" highfor my truck. I would rather have another trailer that isn't top heavy. My mistake is your gain. Everything works on trailer.

3 burner stove
oven
propane heater
coleman a/c very cold
fridge
two beds one up front
one that the dinnette table turns into
very clean trailer
looks exactly the same trailer in pics under quantum. The interior looks exactly the same the exterior looks little different
very clean trailer

I am located in mesa az Can send you pics. Tried posting pics but said file is to big

asking $2000

Boy oh boy

For all of you that might want a fifth wheel that was quite a buy. From everything I have learned, there were less than fifteen of these made. At the time they put so much into these fivers that they priced themselves out of the market. I must have been sleeping and missed the add. If you snooze you loose.

Hersh (bought Kents Quantum) has been doing quite a bit of research and has been in contact with former builders and retreaved much information on these fivers. With anyk kind of luck he will chime in and give more information on the production numbers. I have been in contact with him in the past and he is the source of the less than fifteen made. I have not talked with him in quite awhile but I did send him an email today to let him know about the sale.
