How's this on the warranty?

A Mobile Suites came in next to us yesterday with a large one of these on the back. http://www.hydralift-usa.com/5th-wheel-lift/
Had a touring BMW motorcycle and two bicycles on it. Stick this on the back of a Monty and then ask Keystone about the frame warranty. Didn't they go to 12" frames so we could add one of these?

did you notice all the legal jargon they used to try and protect themselves?

You bet. It looked neat but scary.

Frame warranty issues remind me of the " if you full time in it, your warranty will be voided". Anyone remember?

Have to add a third axle if you have "excessive rear overhang".
I think I will pass even though I am far out of warranty.

I had one on a motorhome. Worked pretty good, but had to be careful backing

I believe Mobile Suites are a heavy rig to start with and this guy is pulling this one with a special RV puller 450 ford, but it only has two axles. I just can't believe that's a good idea. I rode a Honda Goldwing for a lot of years and the BMW touring bike can't weigh a lot less. That's an awful lot of weight jacked up in the back of the rig.

Send a message via Yahoo to Champ_49
After awhile he will recognize it's faults when he starts walking out his doors and they are sticking to the frame. That's the first hint he will get, but by then it will be entirely to late to matter.

I saw one. The guy said it was good for 500 pounds. He had a BMW on it that weighed 500 pounds. He was pulling it with a 2500 Chevy.

Just think how much weight it takes off the pin though!
