Last Updated on

Buying a fifth-wheel camper can be overwhelming because there are many different models available on the market. However, it does not need to be. This is because I have done the research and I have compiled a list of 10 brilliant fifth-wheel campers in this article.

Only fifth-wheel campers that are well-built, durable, cozy, convenient, and perfect for camping appear on my list. Without wasting any more time, below are the 10 best-built fifth-wheel campers.

What Are The Best Built 5th Wheels?

1. Keystone Montana

This is a very popular fifth-wheel camper. In fact, it is one of the best-selling fifth-wheel campers in the world.

According to those who own this fifth-wheel and RV critics, it is one of the best campers to own if you plan to go off-grid for a long time. It is also perfect for those who want to do full-time RV living.

One of the best things about this camper is the fact that it has multiple storage areas. So if you have plenty of clothes and other belongings like most people, you should be able to find enough space to store everything you own out of sight.

In terms of sleeping areas, Keystone Montana has a single stately bedroom with a Queen-size bed. The bedroom has multiple storage areas. This RV also has several other sleeping areas in the form of hide-away beds. So it can definitely accommodate a family.

With regards to features, this fifth-wheel has got a large kitchen, a massive refrigerator, a washer, a dryer, a dishwasher, a microwave, a backup camera (for easy parking), and a bathroom.

Probably the reason why many people buy this fifth-wheel is how luxurious it looks both inside and outside. It is a great machine. Its construction is also something to write home about because it is quite sturdy and durable.

2. Forest River Wildcat Series

This is an award-winning RV! It has won various awards since it was first introduced to the market. It is regarded as one of the cheapest feature-rich and durable fifth-wheel campers in the United States!

The thing I love the most about this RV is how compact it is. It has a small footprint and it is also lightweight, making it easier and safer to tow. It also makes it easier to maneuver over rough/ slippery terrain.

I also love the fact that this camper comes with a beautiful bedroom that features a king-style bed. Other sleeping areas in this fifth-wheel include a bunk area and a convertible living room area. In short, this camper can accommodate a large family.

The living room in this camper has recliner couches and spinning captain chairs. It is the perfect place to lounge, have a game night, host guests, eat, or simply enjoy a movie or a TV show.

With regards to features, this fifth-wheel comes with a standard oven, a microwave, a refrigerator, an exterior grill/ cooking area, a large sink, a spacious bathroom, an entertainment center in the living room, and multiple storage cabinets. 

Forest River Wildcat Series camper looks and feels just like a small apartment. It is definitely a camper you will love camping in and it does not cost as much as most fifth-wheel campers do. 

3. Redwood RV Redwood Model

This is one of the most amazing fifth-wheel campers in the world! It is absolutely perfect for those who want to live the RV life because it has everything one needs to live perfectly comfortably off-grid.

So if you are thinking of buying a camper for full-time living or for constant use, you should strongly consider it! I must also mention that it is also great for occasional camping trips because it is extremely durable.

The thing that stands out the most about this camper is how versatile it is. For example, while it has one master bedroom, it can sleep a total of six people comfortably because it has several hide-away beds and convertible beds.

It also comes with plenty of storage areas inside and underneath to enable you to keep it neat and tidy by hiding everything away.

The kitchen in this camper is spacious and has a large island, storage areas, and quality appliances for cooking complete meals while on the road. 

The only thing you may not like about this camper is the fact that it is not a lightweight trailer. Therefore, you need to buy a big truck with a powerful engine to be able to tow it safely.

If you do not already have such a truck, it is better to go for the Forest River model I have mentioned above because it is lightweight and it can be towed even by many vehicles including midsize SUVs and smaller trucks.

4. Dutchman Voltage Series

I added this fifth-wheel to this list because it is slightly different from standard fifth-wheels. It is different in the sense that it is perfect for carrying dirt bikes, bicycles, and ATVs.

This is because it has a huge storage room and a massive door for taking your toys in and out. So if you are an adventure seeker, with dirt bikes, bicycles, or an ATV, you should strongly consider getting this RV.

Probably the most amazing thing about this Dutchmen Voltage Series camper is its sleeping capacity. The biggest model is a two-bedroom fifth-wheel camper that can sleep ten people. Two in the master bedroom, four or five in the second bunkhouse bedroom, and the rest in the three remaining in the convertible living room areas.

It is the second bedroom of this camper that can serve as a storage area for your toys. So if you have toys in it, then you cannot use it as a second bedroom.

The second most amazing thing about this Dutchmen RV is how luxurious it is. It is a machine that is available in various rich color schemes and has plenty of quality features for comfortable living.

Its features include a large television, a powerful fireplace, cozy sitting areas, a full kitchen, and a complete bathroom.

This is certainly an amazing one-of-a-kind camper.

5. Heartland Bighorn 

This camper is luxurious and well-built for handling all seasons. It is made by the famous Heartland RV Company that has been churning out top-quality RVs for US owners for decades now.

The RV has different floor plans available. The most family-friendly floor plan sleeps six people.

I mentioned above that this RV is built to handle different seasons. Let me explain this. This camper’s siding is vacuum bonded. This means it does not get unnecessarily cold inside. It also has an insulated floor and an insulated roof.

These facts plus the fact that this camper has a fireplace makes it perfect even for traveling during winter. For cooling during hot sunny days, this camper has a powerful AC.

The body of this RV is aerodynamic and it includes gorgeous slide-outs and automatic stabilizers.

It also comes with a full bathroom.

6. Grand Design Reflection Series

This fifth-wheel camper is unique. It is unique in the sense that it is a true lightweight camper. In fact, it is so light that you can actually safely tow it using a half-ton truck such as the Ford F-150. So if you already own a half-ton truck and you want to buy a fifth-wheel camper and to save money on upgrading your truck, I recommend this camper.

I also recommend this camper if you want a smallish trailer that is not difficult to tow on challenging terrain or while traveling at high speeds on highways. This is because it is a super lightweight and compact fifth-wheel.

Because it is a compact and lightweight model, it does not have a lot of extra space. However, it does have a living room and a bedroom.

The bedroom has a large bed, a closet, and other storage spaces. In case you want to travel with your kids or you receive guests while traveling, they can sleep in the living area on the spacious couch that can be converted into a bed.

The living area in this trailer comes with a TV area. Next to it, there is a kitchen with everything for preparing hot meals for your partner, your guests and/ or your family. 

7. Forest River Cardinal

While the Forest River Wildcat Series I discussed earlier is one of the cheapest and lightest fifth-wheels, this one is pretty pricey and heavy. The cheapest version of the Forest River Cardinal goes for around $49,000 and weighs approximately 13,000 lbs.

But while this fifth-wheel camper is heavy and expensive, it is also a very high-quality and durable RV.

You can tell it is a high-quality camper by simply looking at its exterior; the camper looks sleek and aerodynamic.

The walls of this camper are vacuum-bonded making the temperature in it stable. So even if it gets extremely cold outside, as long as you are inside this camper, you have closed your windows and you have the camper’s furnace on, you will be warm and cozy.

The sleeping areas in this camper include a king-style bed in the bedroom suite with a premium mattress and a leather sofa in the living room that can be converted into sleeping space for two.

Speaking of the living room, it is quite spacious and it looks and feels cozy. In addition to the sofa, it has theater-style seats

In addition to what I have mentioned about this camper, it comes with a bathroom, a full kitchen, plenty of storage spaces, and two awnings. 

It is a great fifth-wheel camper, especially for experienced RV owners.

8. Grand Design Solitude

The Grand Design Solitude is one of the best made fifth-wheel campers in the United States right now. This is because it is very customizable and some of its versions are perfect for camping with family.

What makes this camper perfect for camping is the fact that it can sleep many people and the fact that its living area is big enough for an entire big family to lounge in or to play a game or two.

The living room in this camper is quite large and customizable. The kitchen too is large and customizable. It has a large pantry for stocking food for long trips.

Almost everywhere in this camper, there is storage space. The many storage spaces in this fifth-wheel make it perfect for storing things out of sight making everything look neat and tidy. One of these camper’s many storage spaces is a full walk-in closet. Another is a large undercarriage. This is great for storing camping supplies that you do not intend to use frequently.

In short, this travel trailer is luxurious and brilliant for storing everything you will need for a long camping trip.
