DEFINITION OF A FIFTH WHEEL
The term “fifth wheel” is derived from the U-shaped coupling component that attaches to the back of your truck, allowing the front axle assembly to pivot horizontally for more streamlined and comfortable turning while towing.
BENEFITS OF A FIFTH WHEEL
Fifth wheels are a very popular option amongst full-time RVers and avid travelling families for a variety of reasons.
For starters, fifth wheels provide you with the maximum amount of space to easily live out of for long periods of time. The majority of fifth wheels range from 30 to 40 feet in length with incredible amounts of space for living and storage. Most fifth wheels feature large kitchens along with full-sized showers and appliances, so you get all of the creature comforts of home even when thousands of miles away. They also have the highest ceiling heights, meaning less crouching and ducking when moving around the cabin.
Besides the interior comfort that fifth wheels provide, they also offer among the most comfortable driving and towing experience around, making them ideal for the cross-country travellers out there. Despite their large size, the design of the gooseneck hitch that attaches to the back of your truck makes both long highway drives and windy mountain roads much more manageable compared to other recreational vehicles — you’ll forget your fifth wheel is even behind you!
Fifth wheels do require specific types of vehicles in order to be towed — a pickup or flatbed truck that has the space for a coupling to lock into it. Because fifth wheels are larger and heavier than travel trailers, you also need the gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of your towing vehicle to be sufficiently high to handle the weight of the trailer, the truck itself, and all passengers and cargo.
