Hi all we are new to the scene of full time 5th wheeling, we are taking the plunge and going full timers and would be appreciative of any tips that can help us both with our new journey in life.

Thanks all and hope to chat to some of you soon.

First of all welcome to the forums from SW Idaho.

What kind of tow rig do you have?

Relax, have fun and buy a couple of these.

I was looking online and thought that maybe it was a full size truck overseas. I see the biggest engine is 2.5l diesel and towing capacity of 2.5 metric tonnes.

Edit
More info here.

To my surprise, 2000 pounds of payload, but towing is a little over 5000.

Welcome Steve-Debs! Are you going to be using your 5th wheel in the US or the UK? A while back, I followed the adventures of a UK couple that came over here to RV. Just curious! In any event, best wishes! The best thing to do is read, read, read! This forum and others are loaded with tips and instructions.

Hi Joe, thanks for the welcome, we are intending to live in it in England for 12 months then move on to Europe, we are retiring early in 5 years time (55) and then hopefully move onto Canada, North America and then just see were things go from there.
