With a 5th wheel trailer, I would look into getting pneumatic jacks installed to the front, so you can just press a button to lower the jacks to unhook the trailer fast. At the bottom of the jacks, have metal for it to slide on. I would also get some heavy duty D-Rings welded along the sides, near the front and back, and a winch front and back.
I like the idea of powered jacks and the D-rings. How do you see the winches being placed and used at either end? I'm not sure I follow that one.
It may be nice to have the option to use it in an RV park since they'll have readily accessible sewer, water, power, internet, etc. A lot of RV parks, though, won't accept nontraditional RVs that don't look like a regular 5th wheel, travel trailer, etc.
Excellent point. I've considered the possibility of living in it (hence driving it out to a barren piece of land and start over), but not about the appearance and where it may or may not be accepted. Is there a standard location for the electrical, water and sewer hookups (right side vs left side, etc)?
I sometimes ask silly questions like that, because even as I'm working on the trailer I have, I'm putting the "new" one together in sketchup.
Great ideas so far. Keep 'em coming.
