Horizon Transport out of Indiana might have a hauler... also as someone else mentioned, try a rv dealer and get the name of the transporters the dealer uses. I think I would look for one in the area where the rig is now parked.

Hope your wife progresses well with her treatments. And with Covid shutting things down, it is all stressful. Good luck and blessings to both of you.


Ditto on Horizon, those guys are hauling 5ers and trailers from factories in northern IN down to dealers in FL and deadheading on the way back. I'm sure a driver would love to make some side money coming back north with a trailer. Here is a Facebook group.


I had Horizon move my fifth wheel from Indiana to PA.. Lance was awesome to deal with, and they were on time.. Everything was done as proposed with no issues.... I would NOT hesitate to use them again

Good luck to you - please post back on the outcome of having it moved.

Best wishes to your wife and her recovery.

I think you can easily find an RV hauler to bring it up for you. The big issue with RV hauling is the manufacturers don't pay for the trip back, so I'm guessing there's plenty that can find a load to take down to FL from the manufacturer, then bring yours up to NY for you.

Ian,

I understand your problems. My wife is a cancer survivor and it is a hard time for everybody. Love and prayers do help.

Now, are you members of FMCA?
Even if you are not, they may be able to point you towards help.

This is not a good time. The BMW that belongs to my wife's Canadian cousin has been at our house since the start of this thing and I have been trying to find ways to get it back to her.

Is that directed to me? You've got to be kidding.

This thread has been running well with no interference or intervention from me, and the responses to the OP have all been considerate and constructive.

Dave, "IF" they are talking about your post, that is absurd....

Their thoughts on the thread are childish in my book....

To/for....Over Zealous Moderator/s ??....[emoticon]

A few years back there was a thread - think it was something like "Getting Jim home" - from the wife of "Jim". They had left their home in (IIRC) Virginia for a trip to Texas. Jim had terminal cancer, wanted to go to TX one last time. He was OK with driving there - but then things took a turn for the worse.

She had no experience driving/towing their 5th wheel and was looking for someone to drive it back for her.

The thread ran for several pages - many, many volunteers as well as suggestions - including "handoffs" from state to state. Eventually her problem was solved they got the truck & trlr home. (And, yes, Jim did pass away at home).

*NO* Mod or Admin closed the thread - until AFTER they had returned home, and no more assistance was needed.

OP: The PullRite SuperGlide. There is an adapter available from PullRite to tow the 5th with a non-PullRite hitch. Unfortunately, it's about $150. as I recall.

On edit via new post.

The thread was actually called, "Getting 5th Wheel Home", by "Top Dog", posted 3-17-06. Fifteen pages.

Folks were still adding comments *after* the situation was resolved,
so I asked the Mods to close the thread. I should add, I did communicate with Gloria via private message to express sympathy & condolences on Jim's passing. She had expressed her thanks to all and was doing well.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughts, ideas and best wishes! I'm happy to report I found a Canadian rv hauler - Transport KMC - that could bring it across the border and drop it off outside our home, where it sits now. We're getting everything cleaned and organized and next week it'll go into storage for the winter.
I wish all y'all a wonderful winter and the best of health,
Ian
