Advantages of Choosing a Fifth Wheel RV
If you’re looking at your old RV and thinking about getting an upgrade, that upgrade might just look like a fifth (5th) wheel. Fifth wheels are often the biggest and most luxurious towable RVs on the market, so there are a lot of benefits to reap from these models. Stop by Bretz RV & Marine in Missoula, Montana and we’ll show you what we mean.
While there are certainly some exceptions to the rule, fifth wheels are generally the biggest towable RVs available, and to some extent, some of the largest RVs overall. They can often reach over 32 feet long, commonly offering over 36 feet in length, as well as reaching heights of 8 to 10 feet. This can give you a lot of great advantages, the most basic being more interior space. Invest in a model with slide-outs, and you’ll really be able to maximize the amount of living space you have. Plus, that extra height is popular among some of our taller campers who might have to duck otherwise.
This extra space can make room for more amenities, and often more luxurious amenities. This culmination of benefits can make fifth wheels ideal for bigger families who need to accommodate more people. They’re also popular among full-time RVers who don’t want to have to spend their indoor time cramped in a small space. Remember that not every day on the road is going to be sunshine and rainbows, so you’ll want an RV that you can be comfortable in all the time. For many, that means a 5th wheel.
This kind of additional weight requires special accommodations. The standard bumper pull hitch isn’t strong enough to haul a fifth wheel, so they get their own specialized 5th wheel hitches. These are the kind that swoop up and into the open bed of your tow vehicle, like you might find on a pickup truck. This creates an overlap between the two parts of the towing unit, which gives you more stability and control even on windy roads. However, this does require you a tow vehicle with particular attributes. That open bed is essential, so for many, the easiest route is to just get a pickup. Make sure your pickup can accommodate the extra weight, which might mean more than a half-ton truck. The right tow vehicle is going to set you up for an easier, safer, and more efficient traveling experience, so don’t ignore this step.
