The Coast team has noticed that Fifth Wheel caravans are becoming more and more popular in the UK. Originating from the USA, these distinctive leisure vehicles get their name from the type of hitch used to pull the unit and can only be towed using a modified pickup truck.

There are many advantages to choosing a Fifth Wheel vehicle over a standard touring caravan, including:

  • Stability – on the whole, the nature of the hitch means that Fifth Wheel caravans are much more stable when towed in comparison to a caravan with a ball hitch coupling
  • Space – the design of the Fifth Wheel offers a very spacious interior, perfect if you have a large family or plan to go away for significant periods of time
  • Storage – many Fifth Wheel models feature greater storage areas than traditional touring caravans
  • Training – if you purchase a caravan through the Fifth Wheel Company, a trained member of staff will take you out for the day to practice driving, hitching and pitching. They also offer you the chance to spend your first night in your new Fifth Wheel caravan at their North Wales site

You can arrange a test drive with the Fifth Wheel Company through the firm’s official website.
