It mostly comes down to the fact that hear in Australia vehicles GVM and GCM as set by manufacturer is the limit, and any trailer over 4500Kg has to have air brakes, at least those trucks already has this setup, to change a Ute to air brakes about $20000 .

5vers are a pretty spotty RV group compared to other RV categories in Australia. They consist of locally built, US 5vers or Custom rigs. This Motorhome company is trying to make them more acceptable to the publicgeneral[image] [image]

I like the interior decor of the Australian fifth wheels so much more than the American designs.

One last word, the 5ver ownership is growing, but it is far from dynamic like the Caravan and Motorhome RV areas, which are booming. Preference for Off Road RVing on dirt or extreme Off Road affects the take up of 5vers, except for a few smallish local manufacturers
