The age-old question when shopping for your first (or next) RV: fifth wheel vs travel trailer: which is better?
New and used fifth wheels usually cost significantly more than travel trailers for a variety of reasons.
You can find used fifth wheels for $20,000 or less or you can find new ones over $100,000. However, the average price for a new fifth wheel is between $30,000 and $50,000.
The average prices for new travel trailers run between $11,000 and $30,000.
As far as storage capacity between fifth wheels vs travel trailers goes, fifth wheels take the cake – with more interior and exterior storage.
