Over family has RVed (owned) all types of RVs over the past 15+ years of RVing . We have owned class C bumper pulls, expensive Bluebird 40ft diesel pusher class A, 30ft bumper pull travel trailers and now this 5th wheel Livin Lite/Camplite all aluminum and Azdel RV. We always do a lot of research (months and years sometimes) before we buy any RV and we loved all the RVs we have owned over the years camping all around the US with our kids.

These 5th Wheels RVs are the easies to don't have any swaying of the bumper don't any scary white-knuckle, stay in your lane driving a big rig diesel pusher class loud V8/10 engine noise the Class C and you are the safest in a crash driving your own truck vs being in the back of a RV house which will fall apart in a roll-over accident and hurt your family.

However our kids are older now and we are using our latest Livin Lite 5th Wheel RV less and less so we have decided to sell the whole 2020 F-150 truck and RV all as one package if possible. We want to sell it to a family or person that will understand our setup and appreciate all the research, love and hard work going into this perfect, super fuel efficient and safe 5th RV setup!

I have included extensive detail of our research, websites, usage, description and picture of our RV and F-150 truck in this posting. Please read and ask us any questions before wanting to see our RV. We are reasonable people and are happy to show the RV and truck to serious buyers. However it does take a lot of personal time to showcase our RV setup so please do your own research, read our posting and ask a lot of questions before you decide to meetup and see our RV in person. We have sold all our RVs in the past to private buyers and it takes some time to set up an appointment and allow buyers to see all of the RV and you can even test drive my setup if you want. Please have all your funding in place before deciding to buy from us since we only will except cash or wire transfer. We have spent a lot of time and money to make this 5th wheel RV setup as perfect as possible.

These Livin Lite/Camplite bumper pulls RVs are rare and the Livin Lite 5Th Wheel RVs are super rare since they were only made for 2 years and then the whole Livin Lite company was sold to Thor Industries. Thor no longer makes these all aluminum/Azdel RVs anymore. These all aluminum and Azdel RVs are built to last, no wood to rot, no rotting plywood floors, super strong lightweight all aluminum welded RV frame, wall and floor. Unlike the Camplite bumper pull these Livin Lite 5th wheels have traditional rubber roof to keep weight down. Typical RVs (5th Wheel, Class A and mostly bumper pull) use glue wood/plywood floors, Luan (plastic, balsa wood, paper glue ) for walls and cabinets. A small roof leak will not be seen for months or years because it travels down inside the Luan paper/plastic/wood walls to rot out your typicaly cheap plywood RV floors. You will only notice the damage from meldew smell or soft floors...but by then it is too late to fix the problems. These Livin Lites RVs do not have any wood only Azdel and aluminum  which does not get water damage even if you have a roof leak so you have a chance to fix the water leak problem and not have to gut out your walls or floors replacing cheap wood/plywood/plastic walls and floors. This 5th wheel is even rarer because it has the all aluminum cabinets package also. This 5Th wheel weighs under 6,000lbs and you can take 4,000lbs of payload! That 4,000lbs payload is more than 2x the normal payload of all/most 5th wheels and bumper pull RVs available! Typical RV (bumper pull, Class A and B and expensive 5th Wheel) only gives you a payload (clothes, food, water, ext) of 1,500lbs to 2,000lbs while this 5th wheel you can load 4,000+lbs. Also this 6000lbs dry weight RV can be easily towed by an standard F-150 or Dodge 1500 series truck (even V6 engine) that will save you a tons of gas money.

You don't need a F-250 or RAM 2500 to tow this 5th wheels. Save your gas money for the 90% of the time that you will be driving your truck with no load. Also no need for a diesel truck and save on higher clean diesel fuel and much less truck maintenance. This super lightweight all aluminum frame and Azdel wall and floors 5th wheel can be easily towed with a V6 truck. Furthermore, I spent months making sure to buy the correct F-50 truck with an Ecco-boost turbo V6 engine, extra heavy duty rear end and all towing package needed to tow 10,500lbs. This V6 turbo engine has much better fuel efficient then the V8, more expensive engine than the V8, liter weight engine than the V8,  much...much better torture at 2,000rpms than the V8. I have owned a Class C V10 engine RV before and the engine is super loud when towing up any hills because your typical V8 or V10 only has torque at 4/5,000 RPMs so you engine is screaming loud pulling the load up hills. Your wife can't hear you talking to her in the front seat going up hills or even in high winds when these V8 or V10 RV engines get louder and louder under more load. Also the big V8 or V10 can only go up steep hills slowly since they have NO low end torque like this Ford Ecco-boost V6 turbo. And the engine is screaming loud the whole time going up the hills really. Also these V8 and V10 engines sucks up gas like are lucky to get 6 or 7 mpg towing with the V8 or V10 engines. This F-150 Ecco-bost V6 turbo engine can pull a 10,500lbs RV with no strain whatsoever!. My F-150 can pull my 5th wheel over steep hills at 65mph speed and never go over 4,000rpms...engine stays cool, quiet (you can talk to your wife in the front seat) and I get 9to 11 mpg pulling all day long with my RV and F-150 truck setup going 65pmh.
