Freightliner rv hauler – $15000 (Chino valley)
Ultimate RV hauler. Wife says buy me a house so this project has to go.
If you have a BIG toy hauler this will do the job and you don’t need a comercial drivers license.
It started out as a 1995 Fl70. I chose this because it had a wide cab and heavy double frame with all the semi truck air brakes and suspension. I extended the frame and added a 350 hp Cummins with jake brakes , a 13 speed with overdrive, heavier front and rear axles from a 2001 freightliner century with aluminum wheels, two 150 gal fuel tanks, two air seats, two stand up sleepers all on air bags for a smooth ride.
Has the large semi sliding fifth wheel, goose neck, pintle hitch and very heavy duty bumper pull receiver with two receivers so you don’t need a long drop ball.
Gear ratio is 293:1 so with the low range in the trans it will still pull 50k lbs. but will top out at 90 mph in overdrive. Of course I don’t go that fast.
This will pull the heaviest toy hauler at 75 mph at 1800 rpm up hill all day long. With the Jake brake you barely use the foot brakes.
The heaviest part of this project is done, all it needs is paint.
Rear sleeper is a dinette with table that converts to a queen size bed.
Interior is mostly finished with new carpet. There’s some minor trim details to be done. There’s a place in the first sleeper for a kitchen area. Has a porta poty.
250 gal. water tank and pump, generator, great for going to the dunes.
No engine computer to go bad, one hot wire runs the thing. Good for bugging out for you preppers.
Please text or leave a message and I will return the call. No emails.
Asking $15,000.00 Firm. Sorry to see it go.
