Why you might consider a fifth wheel trailer for your next summer camping trip
If you’re planning a summer of camping with an RV, consider camping with convenient fifth wheel trailers. Fifth wheels allow you to easily tow your spacious home away from home anywhere you please. Once you’ve parked it in your desired camping spot, you can unhitch it from your truck and have a vehicle to drive around. Here are a few other reasons why you might consider a fifth wheel trailer for your next summer camping trip.
It is often more affordable to buy a truck and a new fifth-wheel trailer than it is to buy an older motorhome. Insurance rates are less expensive when covering a truck and trailer than covering a motorhome and a towed vehicle.
SPACE & STORAGE
Fifth wheel trailers are often taller and more spacious than other RVs, making for a comfortable home on the road that doesn’t feel too cramped. They also have plenty of storage space throughout—including below and upfront—plus storage on the bed of the pickup truck.
USE OF A TRUCK
Having a truck to drive around while camping is a bonus since trucks are more durable for off-road travel. Trucks also come in handy if you need to grab camping supplies, such as wood, food, or even canoes and boats.
LARGE WATER & WASTE TANKS
Having your own supply of fresh water while on a camping trip is extremely convenient, especially if you are camping in an area that doesn’t have an accessible supply of fresh water. Fifth wheel trailers have large fresh water tanks and often multiple large waste tanks. You can take a shower in your own bathroom, and won’t have to rely on outhouses, stocking up on bottles of water, or carrying buckets of water to your campsite for cooking and cleaning.
CONTINUE CAMPING EVEN IF THE TRUCK BREAKS DOWN
Car troubles can happen at any time, so if you have to get your truck to the shop for repairs, you can still camp in comfort with all of your belongings and supplies in your fifth wheel trailer. With broken-down motorhomes, the whole vehicle will end up in the shop so you would be stuck looking for accommodations elsewhere, which can put a damper on your camping trip, especially if you have your pets with you.
EASY TO BACK UP
If you have to fuel up for gas at a busy gas station, or you have traveled down a narrow road with a dead end, you will have a much easier time backing up with your truck and fifth wheel trailer than you would with a motorhome towing a vehicle. Fifth wheel trailers are able to instantly back up, whereas backing up with a motorhome could result in damage to your towed car.
Fifth wheel trailers are a convenient RV option for summer camping trips, making camping comfortable and easy in your home away from home.
