I have 1997 Prizm M921P5B any feedback would be helpful

I just bought my first 5th wheel and I'm wondering if I made a mistake. I was told my Tacoma could pull it as its only 3000lbs. I think it had water damage in the bathroom which we didn't catch. I have been getting different stories on this. I'm far from rich so have I purchased a money pit????

Hello !

I just saw your post today...we do not have a 5th wheel, but, was concerned about your situation. Our first motorhome was an older model...we had no issues, other than old carpet,which my husband pulled up after a couple years and put down 'self sticking' tile. Perhaps, if you are handy, you can pull up the bathroom floor...access your problem and fix it, or get a handyman to do the job.

Good luck and keep me posted on your experience

my Prizm

I have a friend who turned me onto a great guy who works on campers and he is very reasonable. He winterized it and fixed the bathroom floor ( tore up the old rotten one and replaced it) The camper is like new. Next year I hope to take some road trips. Now I just need a rig to pull it

Hello, I saw your post in the forum about a "Prism 2000" 5th wheel. Mine was built in 1996. I believe it's a very old post from 2016, but I have the exact same 5th wheel. I bought it about 2 years ago. Just wondering how you made out with it and if I could be of any assistance? I did a lot of upgrades to mine. I had to post because these Prism 5th wheels are rare!!

Since this thread was bumped I just have to comment on the Prizm fith-wheel only weighing 3000 lbs: Anybody who claimed a Prizm only weighs 3000 lbs must have been talking about a Geo Prizm, not that fith-wheel.
