You just can’t beat the livability of a large fifth wheel trailer when the slide outs are opened and the utilities are hooked up.
By far, a 5th wheel trailer is more like an apartment than a camper. I know from experience because I lived in one for a period of 3 years. We had all the amenities and comforts of a stationary home while retaining the ability to suck in the walls and leave in a very short amount of time.
Be sure to follow proper procedures when hitching up, or you may find yourself wondering what you did wrong when the trailer falls off the hitch and damages your truck! Yes, I dropped a trailer once because I took a shortcut and thought I could get away with it.
I’ve been involved in RVing for over 50 years — including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs and motorhomes. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller… you’ve got a good idea of who I am. To date, I've shared my RV knowledge in over 300 articles here at The Fun Times Guide!
