Fifth wheel is stuck

Hi everyone, hope you can offer some advice. My parents have a fifth wheel that I think is still in good shape, though it hasn't been moved in quite a while. The problem is that my dad parked it in such a way that he could not get it out of his driveway (He'd have to turn it around and the gravel driveway is too narrow). They have since had to sell the truck they used to pull the fifth wheel and may need to sell their house. So the question is, who do I turn to for help removing the fifth wheel? It is parked on a concrete pad so it is not stuck in mud or anything. They live in rural Tennessee so options are probably limited. Once it's no longer stuck we can take care of it from there. Any suggestions?

If it went in there it will come out of there UNLESS something has been BUILT, PARKED, or PLANTED in the way preventing it from moving. IF that is the case, how about a very large helicopter?!

 

Was a trucker for over 3 million miles and NEVER drove into a situation I couldn't get out of even if I had to back it all the way.

 

Just last week I had to do some serious shuffling of the fiver to get out of a tight tree covered state park site as the neighbors looked on. After I got it out one of them said "Impressive. I've been waiting for days to see how you could/could not get it out". LOL

You are about 4 hours away from us. Like noted above, if they put the fiver there and haven't build or moved something else to get in the way, you should be able to get it out. You might have to back it out but you should be able to move it.

 

Hopefully, someone will chime in that is closer than we are that can help you out.

I have used a small utility tractor to move many conventional 5th wheel or pull trailers. a ball mounted to a 3 point hitch and a hole to put the 5th wheel pin through. It was all flat ground though you don't want to do any thing that is up and down.
