Did you know that fifth wheel trailers are luxurious RVs that are pulled behind a truck or SUV with a special hitch? Do you think that you are a family that would enjoy living the fifth wheel RV lifestyle?
A gooseneck hitch is the type of hitch used for fifth wheel trailers. It is a large hitch built into the bed of the truck made to tow heavy loads. There is no tailgate in the truck for stability. This hitch allows the fifth wheel to maneuver more smoothly during turns and while on the road.
Fifth wheel RV trailer description
The fifth wheel trailer is one of the most luxurious and priciest RVs on the market today, offering bi-level living spaces and several slide-outs. Up to eight people can sleep comfortably in this unit. One drawback is that due to its weight, the fifth wheel recreational vehicle often costs more in gas mileage than other RV units.
You will be impressed with the size of the fifth wheel in all of its living areas. This includes the kitchen and sleeping spaces. Full timers love this type of unit.
One benefit to having a fifth wheel is that you can park it at the RV campground and take your other auto out and about.
Types of towing vehicles
Typical towing vehicles are large trucks or SUVs, as long as it has the appropriate hitch and the ability to tow heavy duty. Check your vehicle’s rear suspension capabilities, and make sure the 5th wheel weight is balanced before driving.
Which motor home is ideal for you and your RVing needs?
Assess what your travelling needs will be. If it is just two of you, you may decide that such grand space is not necessary and you can save money with a new or used smaller unit. Test drive and explore several other options.
Look at toy haulers, if that is the type of trailer you need, rather than one that has luxury living space. The toy haulers carry toys, such as motorcycles or snow mobiles, to help you enjoy your RV time once at your destination. Take time to look at new and used motor homes and select the best one for you!
