The Vast Space of a Motorhome in a Towable

A large picture window at the rear of the RV for panoramic views is one thing that sets 5th wheels apart from other RVs. Fifth wheels often come with the same amenities as a motorhome or travel trailer but are constructed with a raised forward section that provides a more spacious bi-level floor plan. These models are designed to be towed by a pickup truck equipped with a device known as a fifth-wheel hitch. Scroll down to see more of the possible features and amenities.
