A Fifth Wheel is an oversized travel trailer that connects to the bed of a truck with a "jaw
hitch" also known as a fifth wheel. The Fifth Wheel trailer is a popular choice with full time
RVers because of its increased storage space. Utilizing the basement area of the chassis, a
Fifth Wheel can haul tools and toys with ease. Fifth Wheels offer increased living space with
high ceilings and multiple slide outs.
Unlike the travel trailer, a Fifth Wheel must be pulled by a truck and in most cases, a large
diesel engined truck. Power is key when pulling this type of RV.
While Fifth Wheels come in a variety of lengths they are most prevalent in the 30-36 foot
range. This style of RV offers every type of floor plan imaginable including an elevated
living room style. Large kitchens, big screen TV and even king beds are common features in
many Fifth Wheels. Great for full timing or for camping with the family, the Fifth Wheel
trailer is a popular choice in an RV.
