A Lug_Nut view. 5th wheel trailers are going to new heights and rival highline motorized coaches like the Prevost conversions. Like the Canadian built Prevost Coach, this 5th wheel is also being designed and built by a Canadian company. This two story fiver is 53 feet in length and 13 feet 6 inches in height. It will weigh in at about 40,000 lbs. when completely outfitted.
Trailer Length: 53’
Over All Length: (Trailer/Tractor) 70’
Trailer Weight: Appox. 40,000 lbs.
Over All Height: 13’ 6”
Number of Slides: 4
The rear conversion type cap powers open to reveal a garage that will accommodate a medium/small automobile. Ahead of this area, and still on the bottom level, a bedroom, bathroom and micro kitchen suitable to accommodate a driver or for a guest suite is present.
A curving stairway from the bottom level leads to the kitchen and dining area of the upper level. Heading toward the rear brings you into a spacious living room that expands on both sides with large slide outs. The master bedroom and bath are located in the rear of the coach. This area also has two large slides.
This unit employed a 535 horse power Volvo diesel powered tractor with a 10 speed auto shifting transmission. The extended cab tractor was luxuriously appointed with leather sofa and lazy boy like chairs.
So, how much will this set you back when they become available? Better count on spending upward of 1.3 million dollars or more for the entire tractor trailer package.
