I have been looking at 15ish year old 5th wheels in the 20-25 foot range. Light enough to pull with a 1/2 ton pick up, plus most already have a hitch on back.

My plan is to get a 3-rail trailer and use that combo for getting dirtbikes to the trailhead and then camping in relative comfort. I had a tent trailer and hauled the dirtbikes in the pickup up until last year. As I age, I am finding that my ability to push dirtbikes up into the pickup is getting a bit harder. Plus, last year my step up into the pickup tipped over as I stepped on it. Nothing bad happened, but it could have been horribly bad and I really want to get away from having to do that.

From what I have been finding on CL, I should be able to find a 5th wheel in the $5,000ish range and a small trailer in the $500ish range.
