Campers allow you to take your home along with you so that you are always comfortable during your travels. Fifth wheel campers are campers that are designed in such a way that they can be towed by pickups they are affixed to. Most of these campers are two level units that have a master bedroom at a higher level positioned over the hitching device.
These campers come complete with all the comforts of a home within the length of the trailer unit. The average length of these campers is between 26 and 32 feet though longer ones are not unknown. The standard width is 8 feet, but many of the units will have slide outs that make the camper far more versatile and increase its utility. These campers can easily accommodate a couple, though larger units can comfortably sleep six people, making it ideal for a full family.
The hitch design of fifth wheel campers requires pickups for towing, and one-ton trucks can easily pull the standard models. Towing these campers is easy as they are very stable as the hitch is positioned over the rear wheels of the towing vehicle and this allows for better traction and easier handling. The towing vehicle is always available for small trips to the local supermarket once you have parked your camper. Many of these campers are fully provided with bathrooms, air conditioning or heat, kitchens and will come fully equipped to take in televisions, stoves, refrigerators and many of the conveniences of an average home.
Campers allow you the luxury of carrying your home along with you and not having to worry about hotel bookings or flights, as you are traveling by road. Long distances may take more time, and many people use these campers to make extended road trips which allow them to visit many places while remaining very comfortable. Most parks and nature reserves have facilities that allow you to park your camper and even hook it up to existing electricity, water, and drainage so that your resources are not taxed. Camping grounds are available in most towns, and it is possible to book these spots easily before you reach your next destination.
Fifth wheel campers do not have to worry about engines and transmissions as they are dependent on the towing pickup for their movement. This allows you to design the complete space in it to suit your living requirements, and most manufacturers of these campers will have a number of options, and may even be willing to customize a camper to suit your exact requirements. A number of these campers are also available for resale and if you are vigilant enough you can pick up some of them, at bargain prices, that, will allow you to have more vacations at your convenience. Fifth wheel campers can be more expensive than travel trailers that you can attach even to your car. But they are far easier to tow, have more stability and will not sway in high wind conditions.
