It should be labeled somewhere. Often on a sticker on the back of the door of one of the cabinets. And/or on a plate attached to the frame.

If you can't find either of these, see if you can find out who manufactured the axels. The lesser of axel max x number of axels or tire max x number of tires will give you an upper limit. Towing it empty to a scale will give you the 'dry weight'. Hopefully the GVWR will be at least 1000 pounds higher than the dry weight (unless lots of things have been added since it left the factory).

I just viewed a 29 foot '89 Fireball 5er locally and am considering purchasing it. I'm not finding a lot in information on the maker, except that they went out of business in 1992. Can anyone provide some color as to the quality and longevity of these? Thanks a bunch! ;)

The Fireball was well built for a stick trailer. I had a 1989 34' 5ver a few years back. It was kind of a heavy rig. Needed a 1 ton to haul it and didn't have slides.

Thanks for the reply. I'm looking more and more at getting it since it is quite a cheap way to get into the lifestyle. I have a 4 year old son who is just about ready to enjoy camping. I have been reading all I can about RVs, but you can't beat experience. I need to start somewhere, I hate to do it in debt.
