    Sure...in fact I did. :D

    Didn't get the hitch with it though. :cry:

    Just the fact that it has a hitch doesn't spell instant abuse. But knowing the previous history or usage and maintenance records is an asset.

    Fifth wheels in pick ups normally are for recreational towing. If it was a commercial rig it would have a lot more miles on it.

    As Mike said, history, including maintenance records, would be the key. I would expect at 63K for a 04, it was someone's travel toy
