RV Type: Fifth WheelsBack to RV Types
For anyone seeking maximum living space for a given trailer length, the fifth-wheel trailer category is the place to look. "Fivers," as they are sometimes called, pretty much have become the RV of choice for most full-time RVers.
Models are available with a wide range of typical RV appliances and some not so typical, such as a built-in washer and dryer, double-sided refrigerators and entertainment centres. Slide-out room extensions are common place now, but because of the excess of conveniences and living space a pickup truck as the tow vehicle is required. In addition you'll need a proper fifth wheel hitch installed in your truck box.
Some people object to having to drive a heavy-duty truck when the trailer is parked; however, for maximum living space at realistic prices, the large fifth-wheel trailer is hard to beat. Even the largest fifth-wheel models are relatively easy to tow with the right vehicle.
Prices for fifth-wheels can range from $12,000 to $110,000.
