How Does Fifth Wheel Transport Work?
The procedure is relatively straightforward. Most of the time, your fifth wheel RV will be
connected to a pickup vehicle or a semi-truck. Then, with its wheels on the ground, it will be
pulled to its location. In some instances, however, a flatbed cart may be used. However, renting
a flatbed is significantly more costly than hauling your fifth wheel.
Transporting a fifth wheel is simple because these RVs are built to be pulled over long
distances; their hubs, wheels, and other components are reinforced and capable of withstanding
thousands of miles of towing.
On the other hand, it cannot be pulled this way because it would place undue strain on
the engine and other motorized components. However, fifth wheel RVs are not powered, so this is
not a problem.
All fifth wheel RVs can be towed, but you might occasionally use a flatbed trailer to
keep your RV off the road and protect it from slight damage. You'll pay more for this, though.
