RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

has to be the supply. nothing on but water coming down from above. I'll study the download and compare. thank you all for the help. very kind of you all. For those who wondered about the title, the RV is in Washington State. I brought the old title I had (the widow signed) to Tennessee my permanent residence, and got them to issue a title for a 1990 HM trailer. Yes, Tennessee is a state that doesn't title small trailers. You don't even need lights if you pull it during the day and your car lights are visible. Courthouse people in Madison County were very helpful. I've plates and title for a Home Made that isn't home made. :)

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

There is a maze of plumbing left rear corner behind the shower/toilet. Leaking above somewhere. Water Wil come out the sink and shower.... but the leak also has water.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

As I said in the beginning, I've not been an RVer in the past.....however, I do need living quarters on ajob site. I built a metal roof to keep the rain out of this 45 year old trailer. I've come to like it. Yes, the size is very attractive for one person. I can see the simplicity of towing and use for one person. As I replace those incandescent lights with LED I'm also trying to get the water system working. I hooked up a water hose, 72 lb pressure, and promptly blew something out. I turned on the 12 volt pump and it works fine except there's a leak somewhere. I'm totally intimidated by what seems to me a very complex system of hot water tank, holding tank, fresh water tank, external source, and I don't know what else. Is there a site for "RV water systems made simple"?

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

The DMV told me it's a homebuilt. I had a title from a deceased owner. It's date of"home building" was 1990. DMV had me track down the widow. I got my title as a homebuilt. No one challenging me yet...... however....truth is... it's factory built in the mid 70's. The mfgr serial number went missing somehow...it might be stolen .. but I got it when a renter moved out and abandoned it.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

Further investigation.... the gooseneck shows signs of having a large tag replaced by a WA DMV serial number tag. Also, I'm right about the the electric brakes.. the cannon plug is still on with the wiring for the breakaway safety device. The fellow who's name was on the title died over a decade ago. Fortunately I found his widow and TN accepted her sign off. Somewhere in the past years this thing changed hands but the original serial number tag was gone. WA DMV probably dragged their feet but agreed to assign a home made tag in 1990. I've built trailers and you take them into DMV for inspection and the WA tag. Someone took this in to DMV in 1990 and the state did what they could. However... this remains an early 70's (??) factory built single axle fifth wheel. "Weekender" was the moniker of the day but who made it I still don't know. I'm drying it out, sealing the roof, and painting "Kilz". It's got more life in it. That Coleman furnace is great... really great.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

I don't quite follow. You're saying the"Weekender" name may not be the same as the manufacturer?

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

The title may say 1990 but this power converter.....115ac to 12vdc seems out of the late sixties. This fifth Wheeler is old. Axle might have had brakes once.... the flange is correct for brakes but no mechanism. My only method of pulling is a small trailer.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

I'm in the foothills. Reception is marginal... Short messages have a better chance of getting out. But.. if they are offensive.... thank you all for comments. Doug I appreciate your time. In your fifty years of RV you've seen a lot of changes. This small RV seems from a bygone era. In the late 70's and early 80's everything on the road was smaller. This small fifth wheel was inovative at the time I'd guess. But the SUV and Crew cab pickup changed everything. That Scamp single axle still sold looks nice but that's a pretty big truck pulling it. Whatever this is and whatever the target market it's day is gone. However, it seems I will give it an extra life. I'm uncertain if I'll ever take it on the road but for temporary quarters it will work for me and it's too small for the county to object. Thanks again everyone..... I took the title papers to Tennessee, my permanent residence. They might give me a clear title. Washington State is pretty fussy.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

Some more dimensions....97 inches high. 90 inches wide. That rear deck/rack is 29 inches wide... imagine. Main body is 11 ft long at mid section. Overhang holds the full size mattress. If it's manufactured in 1990 I could have towed it with a gas Volkswagen pick-up with the five speed transmission. However... while I believe the 800 lbs empty weight, it would be easy to overload it. Stick a motorcycle on the rear rack and it would be too much for the old VW Rabbit.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

The three burner stove with oven is also Coleman. That Coleman furnace is what makes this a keeper. It's great. Haven't figured out the water system but there is a tank (20gal) and a 12volt pump.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

The brand name "Weekender" is on all four sides but so dim I'll need a ladder and better light for a picture

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

Doug, those folks in DMV do their best but you are correct..... just assigning a title year is a challenge.

RE: Unknown or erroneous title on single axle fifth wheel

Okay... anyone recognize this. I've cleaned it up and now working on the inside.
