Fifth wheel road trips are becoming more and more popular. Many view the fifth wheel recreational vehicle as a toy hauler exclusively. They don’t recognize it as a luxury or a place of comfort on the road. These individuals are becoming more and more wrong as RV manufacturers continue to increase the level of comfort available through a good fifth wheel choice.
The fifth wheel is not exclusively advantageous for those who want to cart around recreational toys. Many agree that it’s the “best choice,” and their reasons are all different.
Jim B. of Chicago said, “I own a fifth wheel. It’s not the only recreational vehicle I’ve ever owned, but it’s the one I’ve enjoyed the most. I love the spacious interior and being able to unhitch.”
Eliza D. of Seattle said, “The fifth wheel lets you feel particularly ‘at home’ on the road. Once you’ve set up camp and unhitched I feel like a have a real home base to work from.”
Ned P. of Miami said, “The only thing my fifth wheel lacks that my custom home had is a fireplace and as soon as we park and set up camp, we can pull out the fire pit or the barbeque. We don’t feel like our choices are limited when we step away from our ‘home’ and step into our ‘home away from home’ at all.”
Gina W. of Abilene said, “The fifth wheel seems designed just for me. I think it’s almost hilarious to see what types of people find themselves attached to a fifth wheel model. It’s the best type of people watching…it must appeal to all kinds!”
What’s your favorite thing about the fifth wheel in your life? Do you love the interior space? Do you feel that the unique design elements offer more privacy? Do you enjoy being able to drive around smaller, local roads in your tow vehicle after unhitching? Do you like the “toy hauling” aspect? There are so many features that draw people to the fifth wheel that it can sometimes be difficult to put your finger on just why you have to have one, but once you’ve got it…you’ll likely never be happy with any other type of recreational vehicle again.
Are you unable to pinpoint your “favorite” thing? We may be able to help. If you love the Class A, you’ll probably love the availability of luxury features that come with the fifth wheel.

If you love your travel trailer, you’ll probably love the ability to unhitch your fifth wheel and move around without it.
