The term 5th Wheeler is derived due to the motorhome connecting to the towing vehicle via a turntable or ‘wheel’ allowing articulated motion. 5th Wheelers usually afford the same facilities and comforts of other motorhomes but can vary in size with some almost as large as semi trailers. The additional size allows for more creature comforts and accommodation for larger family groups.
