Show Your Sabre!

I can't see where the fiver alone is 36 ft I would say maybe 30.... But looking closely at it he has the whole rig forward of the axles so it must be a hell of a pin weight. Unless his toys are loaded on.

Actually that's a sabre silhouette and they do make the 25RLUD which is 29'4". Looking at pics online, I think that is what this trailer is. It us very light with a dry weight of 6521 and a gvwr of 9071 lbs. That said, is that a SRW towing it?

How Much does it weigh with the Polaris and the buggy on it and what is the tongue weight?

Not exactly sure but around 3-3.5K.
I have sold my tow rig and did not get a chance to get exact.

How tall is it?

I will have to get this measurement as I forgot but around 12.5 feet.
Quote:
Weights and Stuff

Truck with no load:..........8,800

Trailer loaded with..........14,460
personal stuff and
fluids:

Jeep:.............................4,800

RZR:..............................1,200

Tow rig, toyhauler,..........29,260
jeep, rzr, all full of
fluids:

Tongue Weight:...............4,000

tow rig front axle:.............4840

tow rig rear:.....................7960

Trailer triple axle:............16,860

Just added another 75 gallons of water so will probably added anther 600 lbs or so.........obviosly weight will go up as I add more stuff.
And then he was selling it:

Kids are out of the house and moved away, more time with the wife she's not in to the rock crawling and RZR racing so thinking motor home will work better. Kind of silly dragging around a 20 foot empty deck and the 64 foot length is a problem when looking for rv spot in town.

$46,800 not really interested in a trade except for a newer diesel pusher.

Thanks, that's a different thread than I found. I'd be curious about the trucks gvwr and gcwr. he's also over length limits on several states so owners would be limit as to where they could use it. I wonder if he managed to sell it.

He linked to a "for sale" thread and in it, it said it was sold.

It did sound like his first truck was way overloaded, but he sold that and bought a ram dually cab/chassis to put his custom bed on. Even then, with 4k of tongue weight, he likely exceeded its ratings.

Yeah he must of been way over his gvwr on that srw utility body he was towing with. It just looks like a small fiver, says total trailer length is 39.5 and he has a jeep and a another toy on the back which can't leave room for a full size 5th wheel. Anywho it's neat setup!
