Features To Look For In A Toy Hauler

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 extended travel 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 different features and why they might be valuable to you. So, if you’re considering buying a fifth-wheel RV, here are some features to consider.
