Fifth wheels are one of the most popular types of towable RVs. While there are many others to choose from, we’re going to explore the main advantages of the fifth wheels.
Fifth wheels are by far the easiest and safest RV to tow because they attach directly to the bed of the truck with a gooseneck hitch, increasing stability. The main problem with travel trailers is the lack of stability which can create dangerous swaying while on your adventure.
Storage and Space
We understand at Scenic Rv that if you travel full time, storage and space is one of your top concerns. Luckily, fifth wheels offer greater underneath storage and a more spacious design which allows for large kitchens with full-size appliances and luxury features such as bay windows, washer/dryers, full-size shower stalls, electric fireplaces, and so much more.
Tow Vehicle Advantage
Light-weight travel trailers can be towed by an SUV or pickup and some ultralights by a sedan. Heavier 5th wheels require a mid-size truck. The advantage of a fifth wheel is that a significant portion of the RV sits over the bed of the truck that tows it. This reduces the overall weight of the RV and makes it easier to fit into smaller spaces. Allowing for a more convenient and stress free experience.
Leaving it at the Campground
Our last advantage that we visit is the ability detach your RV and leave it at the campground while you go explore the area. To have the freedom of leaving your home somewhere while you take your truck out on the open road is a really cool concept and with a fifth wheel, you can make that happen!
