Location # 14460

This was truck stop is located in Grimsby, called The Fifth Wheel.The Fifth Wheel is a truck stop chain throughout Canada. This location has been around for about 27 years, built in 1990 and closed in 2015. It was not only a truck stop it was also a restaurant, motel and gas bar. The motel was inside the basement, which is odd. The kitchen and seating for the restaurant is pretty big. The business employed approximately 25 employees and during the 1980's and 1990's approximately 100 employees. The property owner Losani Homes, plans to build new residential housing on the land. This is a pretty sweet explore. It is however getting demolished in the next month or so. The Truck Wash located next to it is still active so be careful getting inside. This place is not vandalized...yet.

Motleykiwi If this GPS is correct than I believe this is a new entry. I only see the Fifth Wheel in Thames Centre on here. Please rotate a couple photos and revise your description and then we'll make it live. Are these pictures recent?
