I am still amazed when I recall what I witnessed the day when our first 2012 Open Range Light LF297 was picked up by its new owner. When it was time for the customer to leave we put the truck, which happened to be a Ford F150 Super Crew with a 5.5′ bed, and the trailer through a series of turning radius tests. The distance from the front cap of the fifth wheel and the rear cap of the pick up is substantial enough to allow true 90 degree turning. Take a look at Lerch RV’s YouTube video depicting that radius testing. Keep in mind that the Open Range Light is truly a half ton tow-able fifth wheel. And with the innovative front camp design and hitch pin placement, you can tow this beauty with just a standard fifth wheel hitch installed in your tow vehicle. No need for a sliding fifth wheel hitch (slider) or any other special modifications need to be made.
The Light is another great innovative idea from the Open Range RV company. The Light product line includes the above pictured LF297RLS, LF289RES and the LF305BHS (bunk model with outside kitchen). There is also a travel trailer in the mix as well, the LT252FLR. So if you are driving a half ton tow vehicle and are looking for a truly unique fifth wheel to camp in, look no further than the Open Range Light. And if you happen to have a 5.5′ short bed truck and want a fifth wheel camper, the Light is especially for you! You can have full size fifth wheel fun in a half ton tow-able package, without missing anything. All the features that you require in an exciting package.
The Open Range Light fifth wheel campers and travel trailers are available at Pennsylvania’s largest Open Range RV Dealer, Lerch RV. Located in Milroy, which is one hour west of Harrisburg and thirty minutes southeast of State College, the home of Penn State University. For more information on the Open Range Light, please contact us.

An excerpt from their website at GOPSURV.com explains how they can make your PSU game rental an experience that you will not soon forget:
Where else can you enjoy 2 Full Days of PSU Tailgating in view of Beaver Stadium with a full kitchen & your own private bathroom just a step away?
Spend Friday meeting your fellow football fans & then cook a meal in your full kitchen or go to one of the many great restaurants close-by. Return to your comfortable quarters for a good nights rest & awake when you want (no getting up at 5 AM to go sit in line for a tailgating spot, your already there!). Have breakfast however you want it & then open your door to the best tailgating anywhere in the world.
If you are looking for an RV rental in central PA, please give Keystone Alternatives RV Rentals a call. And tell Mark that Lerch RV sent you their way.
Oh and before I forget, look for a travel trailer to be displayed by Keystone Alternatives RV Rentals at the Penn State vs. Purdue (Homecoming Game) outside of the grey giant, Beaver Stadium.
