5th Wheel

5th Wheel (Fifth Wheel) travel trailers can have many of the same luxuries and amenities as the more common town behind travel trailer. The major difference is that the front is raised which allows for a larger floor space which stretches over two levels.

5th Wheels are made to be towed by a pickup truck utilizing something called a fifth-wheel hitch.

5th Wheel

  • Size: Between 20 – 50 ft
  • Price: Between $15,000 and $200,000
  • Accommodates: Up to 8 People


As 5th Wheels bost a significant amount of floor space, you can expect to have many luxury fittings, making them truly a home away from home. Most will include beds, dining areas, kitchens, full bathrooms, entertainment systems and plenty of storage. High-end models will be finished to a very high standard.

Some models may include slide outs which move the 5th Wheels walls out a few feet to increase the overall living space.

One of the biggest advantages of a towable camper is that once you’ve reached your campground you can unhitch the vehicle, which frees up your truck for day trips and errands.

Smaller 5th Wheel models are available which means you don’t necessarily need to have a large truck to enjoy the benefit of these campers.

However, it’s important to pay close attention to your trucks towing capacity before finalizing a purchase or rental. This information is most often available in the trucks owner manual or on the manufacturer’s website.
