a C 5 wheel? or a 5th Class C wheel?

Makes me think about the guy who purchased my old 5er. He cut off the hitch completely, welded extensions onto the frame and created a cargo platform up front under the overhead and then extended the hitch forward and utilized a pintle hitch setup. Which he tows with his refurbished military duece and half. I had put a lift on my 5er allowing for 16 inch truck tires and skid plates protecting the black and grey tanks and plumbing.
I wish I had a picture of the set up once it was completed.

We are just a humble drinking couple with a hunting and camping problem.

This photo answers the question of "What should I do with my Class C when the motor and transmission are shot and the front end is no good, but the living quarters are still in great shape?"

C Wheel, first of its kind!!! Lol

That owner solved more questions in one mod than any of us have. For all the "where to put the bikes and/or generator" questions, look at all the space available near the pin.


I remember seeing a pic like that a few years back. That owner had mounted the trailer facing forward so the door was still curbside. And there was like 6-8 steps to get in the rig.
