It is time to build the Mobile Marriott! No more talking the wife into hauling
the jeep when we go wheeling/camping. I have been looking for months for the right 5th wheel trailer to fit our needs.


2007 Aljo 2905




The plan is to sit the Aljo on a custom built goose neck trailer. The deck of the trailer will be 40 foot, with the Aljo that will leave about 15 foot of flat bed. First I added a back door in place of a window.









Steel is delivered



laying out the new frame

Damn....I thought the economy was bad.....What do you do for a living?

Do you know Matt Hodges?

That thing is going to be long looks like will just barley be legal.

I am hoping to build something exactly the same but totally differant....I know somebody who knows a welder who has plenty of spare time right now to start another project.

If it was the Holiday Inn build think of all the cool shit you would have learned just sleeping in the rig overnight. Love the concept and your well laid out plan for the camper. How much do you think that beast is going to weight? How long is she?
