The Price Is Right

This afternoon a camper pulled into the spot next to mine in a rather average campground. But the rig was far from average. It was a massive looks new fifth wheeler pulled by a shiny looks new semi-trailer truck. I'm guessing the fellow that owns it is loaded. His wife looked like she was dressed nicely and carrying an expensive bag. How much would a trailer like this cost new and how much for the truck? I'm not looking to buy one; I'm just curious and I won't be so bold as to ask him. (photos of each below)

I think you're right. I didn't get a good photo of the front, but I think I saw Momentum on it and it looks a lot like this one on RV Trader. This one is priced around $150K. I love Grand Design, but I wanted to go cheap so I went with Jayco. The quality is very cheap.

I have that same paint on my Momentum. So it was easy for me to spot.

I agree with Stircrazy, that Peterbuilt looks a little older judging by the shape of the headlight housings.These thing seem to run forever even unmaintained,before a naysayer jumps in I'm gonna say I worked for buster brown for years....they don't maintain their stuff.

We were next to a LUXE 5th Wheel in Franconia Notch NH this summer. I was in my zero-grav with a beer and a fire when they pulled in. Within 3 mins I was Googling on my phone the rig & its price.

Wow. Just Wow.

Wouldn't be surprised if total rig combo was half a million.

I'd never get it in 98% of the campgrounds we like to stay at. There is room on the truck frame for a side mounted car, that is probably the next step.

I thought that was a lot of space on the truck frame. How will it get up and down? I notice your travel map in your signature. I used to have one but then it stopped working. Are they working again? It looks like you haven't been to Alabama or Louisiana. I'm in Alabama today and in about 5 days I will be in Louisiana.


On that trip we went out I40 from the Raleigh area of NC, down thru AZ,and back on I10/I65/I85 and home. 6034 miles and 26 days. We never slowed down going thru Louisiana and just clipped the corner of Alabama. I wanted to go to Gulfport state park but the inn was full.
In my mind just driving thru a state doesn't count as camping there.

Of course this is all just my opinion.


You're not going to buy a new HDT unless you really do have more money than you know what to do with haha. You can pick up stuff like that with around a million miles and a recently fresh rebuild which would probably last longer than most of us the way we would use them for 10 to 30k. for contrast I paid 50K for my used f350. I seriously wish I would have bought a used Volvo 780 and reregistered it as an RV. I could have got one at that time for 14K.

If that is a New Horizon 5er, well north of $250K. The truck, depending on age and mileage, probably another $100K

There is a very active HDT (heavy duty truck) group in the Escapees RV Club - all with singled semis pulling large/heavy fifth wheels. (The Volvos are the most popular HDTs and Freightliner Sport Chassis the most popular MDTs). Lots of them carry Smart Cars on the tractor behind the cab and, yes, side-mount ramps is how they do it.
