RE: Thinking about project 5ver

You need to assess the sub floor. If it is soft/spongy in places repairing/replacing it is a MAJOR undertaking. At that age and with poor maintenance, assume you need a completely new roof, plywood decking and all. Roof is a sheet of aluminum and they don't have issues. I am pretty good with Suburban hot water heaters and we don't dry camp so a tankless will work for us. I do understand about the flooring. Decking was laid before anything else attached to a wall so it can be a chore.

Thinking about project 5ver

Have a chance to buy a 2002 Holiday Rambler Aluma-Lite 33SKT REAL CHEAP. The camper surely needs new tires but also has a broken window. Supposed to be a small window and I have never repaired a window. Also has a slide that has to be cranked in and out manually as the electric doesn't work. Water heater doesn't work. Not sure what the issue is; guy never tried to fix. The floor will also need to be replaced as the PO put self stick tiles down and the slide rips them up when pulled it (guess the main slide isn't the issue). I would go linoleum through the trailer and have it installed. How much would a slide cost to get repaired? I know HR is obsolete and parts may be an issue. How do you replace a window. I can get the glass cut but not sure about how to get it into the frame. I have used vinyl flooring in trailers before and know you need to put 1/8" plywood strips under the slide when it is retracted or the slide will scrape the vinyl. Will probably install a tankless water heater anyway and make sure propane tanks are recertified, if needed. Anyway adding cost of tires, window fix, slide fix and new floor will tell me if cheap means worthwhile

RE: pulling fifth wheel with f250 supercab 6.2L engine

I have a 5th wheel that weighs about 10K lbs loaded and pulled it easily with my 96 F250 w/7.5L / automatic. You will have no problems as the 6.2L likely has more giddy-up than the ol' 460.
