Fifth wheels are split-level RVs that must be towed by a pickup truck with a special hitch. Typically, a fifth wheel will have a living space/bunk area on the lower level and a private master bedroom that hangs over the truck bed (rear-bedroom options are also available).
Fifth wheels are great for larger families and for those who are interested in maintaining some privacy while camping. The roomy interiors are also perfect for hosting get-togethers with friends and family. They also offer a smoother driving experience with less sway, so they work well for longer trips.
Prices range from $15,000 to $120,000+.
