for sale for $19,500 in Montana.

We’ve just heard about an incredibly unusual and wonderful opportunity for anyone that is in the market for a high quality, boondocking-ready, full-timer’s fifth wheel trailer.

NOTE: This trailer has been SOLD!

Our good friends and RVing mentors decided to sell their beautiful fifth wheel trailer — and it has been SOLD.

Two slide-outs on the driver's side

There are two slide-outs on the driver’s side, one in the Living area and one in the Bedroom.

In 2002, after 18 years of owning and living in a variety of fifth wheel trailers (mostly NuWa Hitchhikers) as winter snowbird RVers in the southwest, the owners had this trailer CUSTOM BUILT for them by the fifth wheel manufacturer Automate. They have cared for it meticulously and truly lovingly ever since.

Fifth wheel kitchen

The kitchen has custom cabinetry with extra wide drawers.

Automate was one of the highest quality trailer brands of a decade or so ago.

These RVers are extremely knowledgeable and savvy, and when they decided to buy a custom trailer, they knew exactly what was needed for comfortable long-term living in a fifth wheel.

They oversaw the design and construction of their fifth wheel at the Automate plant, visiting the factory every day for weeks on end to ensure that everything was completed to their high standards.

They used the trailer for five to six months each winter in the southwestern states through the winter of 2012-13.

Boondocking-ready with solar panels and a vent-free heater.

There is also plenty of fresh water and holding tank capacity with 100 gallons of fresh water, two 50 gallon grey water tanks (kitchen/shower) and a 50 gallon black water holding tank.

5th wheel trailer bedroom and bathroom area

The layout has a separate shower/sink are and toilet room.

What we like most about this trailer is the light and airy feeling inside. Besides the plentiful and big white framed windows, there is a large skylight in the bedroom. The living room slide-out is very deep, and the rear end of the trailer has huge wrap-around windows.

The main difference is the vanity is on the opposite side of the bedroom.










And here’s a fun little bonus — you’ll be buying a trailer that has been on the cover of Coast to Coast magazine (the Spring 2012 issue) !!
