5th Wheel Camper

Updated on June 16, 2009

5th Wheel Camper

Having a 5th wheel camper can lead to so many wonderful outdoor experiences and adventures. Not only for you, but also for your family. Everyone in your family will love the experience of going on vacations in their very own 5th wheel camper. Exploring new locales at every trip can be exciting as well as there is much to be said about taking your 5th wheel camper to the same campsite each season. You will develop friendships with other campers and come to love the familiarity of going to the same place.

5th Wheel Camper Interior Layout Options

You can get a 5th wheel camper with all the luxurious accommodations of a small home. Depending on the size of 5th wheel camper you would like to drive around, some of these options may not be available. Generally speaking, the larger the 5th wheel camper, the more amenities it can accommodate.

Here are some of the options that you may or may not find in a 5th wheel camper:

Dinette - This is a table with two bench-style cushioned seats.  It can convert into a double-sized bed by removing the table top and lowering it onto supports and placing the seat back cushions over the table.

Kitchenette - A kitchenette in a 5th wheel camper can include a small counter with sink, water tank faucet and water hook-up, a two-burner stove, a bar sized fridge and cupboards. Depending on the size and length of your 5th wheel camper, you may or may not also have a dishwasher and washer and dryer unit.

Settee - A settee is basically bench style seating like a couch or chesterfield.  It often can convert into a single sized bed.

Storage - Storage on a 5th wheel camper can include anything from cupboards to drawers.  They will be built-in's which use up every possible space that is available.  There will be cupboards and drawers around the kitchenette area, in overhead areas and also underneath the dinette seating and settee cushions.

5th Wheel Camper Shopping

When shopping for a 5th wheel camper, go inside and look it over and if possible, take it for a test drive. Take a friend or expert along with you who may know a lot about R/Vs. Get it inspected by a professional. Be sure and shop around for the best deal. If you are looking at getting a pre-owned or used 5th wheel camper, then here is a list of things that you should inspect:

  • be sure your water tank holds water and does not leak
  • check the electrical systems and outlets to be sure they are working
  • check the tires for unusual wear
  • make sure there are no leaks in the roof

Making Your Own 5th Wheel Camper

If you are industrious, you can make your own 5th wheel camper by converting a 5th wheel truck trailer into your camper. This is a big job, but worth the satisfaction you will get in a job well done. Also, you will get exactly the layout you would like!
