  • For Sale: 2010 Mobile Suites 38TKSB3 and a 2008 Ford F450

So, with some misgivings, we are offering up our 2010 Mobile Suites and 2008 Ford F450 for sale. Let's begin with information on the fifth wheel.

    Miles towed: 5700 miles

    2008 Ford F450

    King Ranch package

    Equipped with a 6.4L diesel engine, automatic transmission with Tow/Haul feature, and 4.88 rear differential ratio. The truck is a two-wheel drive vehicle and will include a 22,000 lb capacity Reese fifth wheel hitch (already installed).

    Current mileage on the truck is roughly 64,000 miles. The truck has been faithfully maintained with regards to oil changes and had new tires installed in June of 2018. (Roughly 1500 miles on the tires.) This is a two-owner vehicle with the first owner only having the truck for one year. We purchased the truck in the fall of 2009 and it had 46,000 miles on it at the time.

    Being a King Ranch version of the truck, it has cowhide leather seats (meaning a much heavier leather than most seats.) It also has a rear DVD player and screen with two sets of headphones (never used.)

    Disclaimer and Additional Information

    The main thing with regards to a disclaimer is that we have priced the Mobile Suites at a low price due to axle issues. The trailer is equipped with two 8000 pound axles with Lippert Never-Lube bearings and axles. Two of those bearings (both on one axle) have begun to show leakage, and since parts are no longer available for the Lippert Never-Lube hubs, new axles will be needed. Additionally, the tires are in good shape, although they are getting along in age. I have not seen any evidence of cracking of the tires, but they will probably be needing to be replaced within about a year.

    We have priced the Mobile Suites at $48,000 and the Ford F450 is priced at $35,000.

    The truck will not be sold separately unless the Mobile Suites has already been purchased.

    Additionally, there is the distinct possibility that the Honda EU3000iS portable generator will also be included in the sale (said generator is about 15 years old but still in good condition). I should also add that some things that we currently have in the RV may be included in the sale, such as some RV parts and other items of interest to the buyer(s) that we will no longer need.
    Other options for any buyer(s) would be that they may choose to accept or decline the furniture currently in the fifth wheel. Those include the Select Comfort mattress (some folks don't like them), the La-Z-Boy Reclinaway love seat recliner, and a jack-knife couch in the rear of the coach. Anything that the buyer(s) decline will be used to furnish an apartment for us.

      I'm getting mixed stories with respect to the bearings. Some have told me that the Lippert Never-Lube bearings are no longer available. Others are saying there are Never Lube bearings that are available. So far, no one has told me if the "available" bearings are for Lippert's or for Dexter. Dexter also has hubs with a "never-lube" capability.

      Are the ones you are referring to Dexter ones or Lippert ones? And, if Lippert, where can they be found?

        In addition to my post at #3, are you referring to bearings for hubs that are for 17 1/2-inch wheels? I don't want a potential purchaser to think that it is a simple fix if there really aren't any parts for those hubs.

        Besides Slade telling me that parts were unavailable, there is another couple that have the exact same year and model of trailer that we have that were also told no parts were available and had their entire axles replaced.
