Many thanks to everyone and especially Donna for your comments and feelings concerning this wonderful trailer. Did you honestly think I would actually strip it down and turn it into a cargo trailer?. Threats are easy to make and action is hard to do. Someone in Montana who is obviously a forum member came through this morning and is expressing a check for the unit. Possibly buying the truck too. So it will still have a loving home and be represented on the forum. I will be 67 next month and the arthritis and my wife"s lack of enthusiasm for traveling in the trailer, ( summer before last in Airzona broke down on I-10 with a water pump out on the truck cured her) prompted me to sever my relationship with the unit. I had promised her we would stay in motels from now on if we went anywhere. Again thanks to all and everyone give Kent a big hooray for saving it. Been nice being with you. Harold Dean

He is going to KILL IT!!!!!!!

oh.. the humanity!!!!

I changed my mind as you cans see by the next post. By the way, the Quantum has been to Lake Arrowhead two years ago. I used to live at Quartz Hill in the Antelope Valley and we were visiting our son still residing there. Thas is the only trip pictures that did not come out. The camera batteries were to low to set the pictures to memory. I lost pictures of the Quantum at Malibu Canyon, Santa Monica, Quartz Hill, Tehachapi, Lake Arrowhead, Cajon Pass, Kingman Airzona and everything else u to Four Corners. Damn! What a loss. Harold

Thanks Jeanne and Steve! It is true and as they say, the check is in the mail!

I still plan on taking my Casita to Oregon Gathering but you never know.

The first time I saw the pictures of the Quantum 5 on the Home Page Photo Album I wished I could have one. Never thought I would ever get a chance to buy one given that they have not been produced for many, many moons now.

You can only imagine my shock and surprise when I saw this very same 5th Wheel offered for sale yesterday. I know this must be tough for Harold given the circumstances for why it is going on the market.

I can't wait to get it to its new home and start tinkering with it.

Thanks Harold!

Your welcome Kent, I have received the check and I hope you are truly as happy with it as I have been. If I had only been able to keep the new one I pulled from the factory dealer in 1980, think of how many happy years of RV,ing I could have had. It was a spectacular unit then and it is hard to believe how well they have lasted through this past 25 years. There well may be more of them out there in hiding somewhere, but I have a feeling they have all disappeared except the few yoou see now and then. I only know of one other one for sure on the road today. Harold

Congratulations! I'm jealous and upset that I did not know about this site earler to be able to see it for sale. When I first seen it in the albums, I said I have to get one of those. What a deal. Can't imagine he was threatening to scrap it for the frame.

Can you post the specs when you have time? Who manufactured them? etc?

Are you towing that with a Ranger?

The information that I have is what I have been told or read on old brochure.

The Quantum 5 was made from 1978 through 1981. Only 500 units were produced when the company went out of business due to high pricing. They are 17' long and fully self-contained. It has built in battery and tank level monitor for fresh, gray and black tanks.

The wet bath, Closet and refrigerator/freezer with TV shelf above are on the left or street side. The 3 burner cook top with oven and sink are on the right or curb side. There is a queen/full size bed in front and a dinette/full bed combo in the back. It has a built in radio with cassette and four speakers. There are 4 AC outlets and 2 12v outlets.

More Quantum Pictures.

The last picture shows the unique overhead storage system. The door opens upward to reveal a shelf and then it has a lower tub type section below the shelf that slides out. The door in the closed position keeps the tub from sliding out.

Kent, I noticed the question from Brown asking if that is a Ranger. Please remind him that this rig was designed to be towed with the 4 cylinder mini trucks, Courier, Toyota, Datsun of the late 70s and early 80s. Harold

Thank you, Harold and Kent.

I'm impressed. I really like this trailer. Envious, maybe even a bit jealous. If 500 were made, there is 499 around somewhere. Maybe one has my name on it.

Sorry, I keep forgetting to sign my first name. Seems it was already taken by someone else when I registered. One day, I'll remember my manners or figure out how to add it in a tag line.

Roy

Thanks for the update Kent. I was actually thinking about this trailer yesterday, wondering if it ever made it to it's new home. It looks great behind the Ranger.

I guess I will now have to change my avatar since I no longer have the Quantum Ranger setup. Can I still belong if I have a sheet of fiberglass roofing over my dining canopy? Harold
