Because of the unique design of fifth wheels, they’re much taller than travel trailers. This is a plus when RVing because taller people have ample headroom and don’t feel cramped inside. It can also help a fifth wheel feel like a home with higher ceilings.
You don’t need a regular or long bed truck to tow a fifth wheel, but it makes your towing experience easier. To tow with a short bed truck, you’ll need a slider hitch. This is still the special fifth wheel hitch you bolt into the truck bed, but it moves from front to back to give you room to make tight turns.
