Episode #149 Pros and Cons of a Fifth Wheel

It’s been a long time coming, but now its finally here! Our EXTRA HUGE Pros and Cons of a Fifth Wheel episode! If you have ever wondered if a fabulous fiver might be right for your family, then this episode is for you.

We will talk about the best aspects of the fifth wheel, such as:

  1. Residential Feel
  2. Private Master Bedroom
  3. On Point Mid Bunk options

And some drawbacks and things to consider, such as:

  1. Need for a HUGE tow vehicle
  2. Losing the bed of your truck
  3. Increased height and need far more caution

And much, much more!

Plus, we invited Chris Barth, Senior Director of Product Development at Jayco, onto the show for the first time. And we are so glad we did. Chris is an encyclopedia of knowledge about fifth wheels and he talks about his Eagle fifth wheels in detail, and the market segment in general. Chris breaks down what floor plans are selling like hotcakes, and who is buying them.  We loved chatting with him and look forward to having him back on the show.

You might think its impossible to figure out what towable RV will work best for your family. But we know that a good ole list of pros and cons can clarify any situation! You are listening to episode #149 of RVFTA, the Pros and Cons of a Fifth Wheel!
