Travel Trailer or 5th Wheel: Which is the best choice for you?

  • Post author:

Both travel trailers and fifth wheels are towable recreational vehicles providing you with a multi-functional temporary home on wheels for travel, “glamping” (glamorous camping), and tailgate parties; they are designed to be towed by a car (for smaller trailers), pickup truck or an SUV. Unlike motorized RVs (motorhomes), which are designed on the motorized chassis, travel trailers can be unhitched; thus, affording you with the flexibility and freedom to use the towing vehicle for sightseeing, shopping and errands. Travel Trailers boast all the conveniences of a home, with a kitchen, dining and entertaining area, bathroom, and storage space. Many models include “slideouts” with movable walls, giving you the extra space you crave, all at the push of a button.

Travel trailers, depending on the model and floorplan, can sleep up to 10 people, which makes them ideal for larger families or a big group of friends. Lightweight models are specifically designed so they can be towed behind 6 cylinder vehicles.

Fifth-wheel travel trailers, while similar to conventional travel trailers in offering similar amenities, are built with a raised extension that sits over and locks into the bed of a truck, providing spacious bi-level floor plans. Many Fifth-wheels have a large picture window in the rear for beautiful panoramic views.
