Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers

How are Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers Different?

In many respects, fifth wheel travel trailers are the same as other travel trailers. The main difference between a fifth wheel and other trailers is the hitch required to tow it. Unlike other motorhomes that use a traditional hitch setup, fifth wheel travel trailers require a special hitch affixed in the truck bed of the towing vehicle over the rear axle. Because this special hitch is attached in the bed of the truck, fifth wheel travel trailers also have a unique bi-level construction that raises the front part of the camper over the bed of the truck.

Advantages of Fifth Wheel Travel Trailers

A fifth wheel offers RVers a number of lifestyle alternatives. From touring, to long-term stays and spot-camping, fifth wheels offer a great deal of versatility. In addition, because they are available in such a wide variety of sizes, fifth wheels are great for the weekend camper, or full time RVers looking for all of the comforts of home.

Choosing the Right Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer

From the right size, to making sure that your truck has the capacity to tow your new RV, if you are considering the purchase of a fifth wheel trailer, it is important that you look at all of your options to ensure you get the right travel trailer.
