This settles the "is it enough truck?" argument

None of us have enough truck. Only this guy. Wife saw this today and was lucky enough to get a pic snapped. And its a Jayco. Double score!

Not as unusual as you may suspect. I've seen several each year at the campground we were working at.

I've seen this setup with a Smart Car on the deck between the cab and the 5th wheel!

They are cheaper used than a new diesel P/U. Another plus, air ride suspension and seats! 20K trailer won't make it sweat.

I've seen multiple medium duty trucks towing a 5'er but rarely do I see a full fledged semi hauling a camper around.

I think the tongue weight of the 5th wheel is too much for that truck! LOL!

I saw one like that once that had a really nice looking custom-built cab. It was sweet. But I wonder what kind of MPG's those get pulling a "little" 35' or 40' 5th wheel around.
