This is a real survivor, possibly first year of commercially made fifth wheel campers. I can transport locally for free. Can deliver anywhere in US for a fee. Asking $7,500 See camper at minute 2:00 of the listed video.
Would look great towed behind a classic pickup, as an Airbnb, pool house, guest house, she shed, or weekend get-away spot. It comes with a great back-story from its original sale in Denver CO. A real attention getter at vintage camper rallies!
Reason for selling: running out of room to store.
