The Main Advantage is SAFETY!
The main advantage of a fifth wheeler over a caravan is the inherent towing stability. The usual swaying of a conventional caravan is eliminated, resulting in a very safe, comfortable touring experience. In fact, they are a dream to tow.
And there’s so much more too. A fifth wheeler also has the added benefits of:
- Shorter overall combination length (by about 3 metres)
- Easier to reverse and manoeuver
- Coupling and uncoupling is a quick, one-person job
- Tow vehicle separates from van – a huge advantage for frustrated motorhomers
