Interesting fiver

Saw this unit for sale and just had to stop and take a look. Apparently it is a converted Frito-Lay delivery truck. Whoever did the conversion did a remarkable job, very professional.

Looks like he built the 5ver too.

How much $$??

I notice the awning arms are different lengths. Not sure how that works!

Sounds like a steal for the right person.

I have seen old Frito Lay truck in that exact config. Chopped Step van pulling a 5er cargo trailer.





My guess is he got a hold of a complete unit (van and trailer) and then modified the trailer into an RV. I was wondering how that would do on the highway. Usually they have like 5.65 gears in 'em. Screaming along at 6000 rpm at 65 MPH is not conductive to long engine life. But then I saw he put in a gear vendors OD unit. How I wished I had one in my old Class A Gas winne.
