5th wheelers or 5th wheeler Caravans are common place in the US and whilst a niche market here in Australia they have a growing family of dedicated followers and this is expected to continue.
Whilst the majority of 5th Wheelers have the same or similar chassis, body material and appliances as Caravans they also require regular servicing in particular units that are used for serious Off Road vocation. From our experience Chassis, Suspension and Brakes are the most common Service items on these RV’s although water intrusion is high on the fix it list.
Just like Caravans and Motor Homes 5th Wheelers are most likely have hot water systems, Diesel or Gas heating, Fridge’s, Stoves, Ovens, and so on. These appliances require regular checks and in some cases servicing to ensure their trouble free performance.
