Fifth Wheels

They’re easy to hitch, stable and easy to tow, and offer plenty of space for the whole family to be comfortable.

Versatility and space are the reasons many RVers choose fifth wheel RVs for their trips or their full-time home. Typically, fifth wheel RVs feature over-cab sleeping; the bed is raised over the cab of the towing vehicle to maximize living space in the trailer. That living space includes a kitchen, dining space, and a bathroom – everything you need to take off with the comforts of home, or make the road your home.
