A big family trip can mean a short trip for your big family or an extended trip for your small family. Either way finding the best fifth wheel for families – large or small – means taking all the needs of your family into consideration and finding the best fit. Do you need room for lots of friends and family or maybe just for all the kids? How about all the toys required to keep an active, outdoor-adventure clan entertained? Maybe you need quiet luxury for your camping getaways. No matter your family’s needs, there’s bound to be a fifth wheel option that can provide the perfect retreat wherever you go.
What Are the Benefits of Fifth Wheel RVs?
When choosing the best fifth wheel for families, the first question may be, “Why a fifth wheel?” The general comparison is between a standard travel trailer and a fifth wheel. The unique feature of a fifth wheel is the way it attaches to the tow vehicle. Instead of a standard hitch like travel trailers, fifth wheels must be towed by a truck because they connect to a specialized hitch centered in a truck bed. While this may not seem like a benefit if you don’t have (or want to have) a truck, the benefits over travel trailers include unique and spacious floor plans, easier maneuverability and “shorter” towing length because much of their length is hanging over the truck bed. There is virtually no sway when towing a fifth wheel vs. a travel trailer which in and of itself is a benefit that can be the sole reason that many choose a fifth wheel for their family.

One feature that is a big selling point when finding the best fifth wheel for families is that the fifth wheel floor plans almost always feature a private master suite at the front of the RV.
