Today, we present to you a thrilling and enthralling tête-à-tête between two majestic road warriors: the Travel Trailer and the Fifth Wheel. Grab your favourite cuppa, sit back, and prepare to be dazzled by our comprehensive guide.
Towing travel trailers and fifth wheels differs mostly in hitching. Fifth wheels use a jaw hitch on a truck bed, whereas travel trailers use a ball-and-coupler hitch on the back bumper of the tow vehicle.
Travel trailers are generally more aerodynamic than fifth wheels due to their lower and more streamlined profiles. This can result in better fuel efficiency when towing a travel trailer compared to a fifth wheel.
