Features To Look For In A Fifth Wheel

Fifth wheels are known for their high quality, large amounts of space (both living and storage) and towing stability, making them an ideal choice for families, couples or anyone considering full-time or seasonal RVing. Compared to a travel trailer or lightweight camper, fifth wheels are typically larger and require a heavy truck for towing. However, you can find smaller fifth wheels—referred to as half-ton fifth wheels—that are lower in weight and can be towed by half-ton trucks. Across all fifth wheels, many owners claim that the unique hitch configuration allows for easier, smoother towing and a better turning radius.

Regardless of what RV type you’re considering, it’s important to evaluate the different features and why these features might be valuable to you. So, if you’re thinking about buying a fifth wheel RV, here are some features to consider.
