Five Best Fifth-Wheel RVs for 2017
Outside of going with a full-blown motorhome, a fifth wheel offers the luxuries of home and a lot of space for the camping enthusiast. They offer all of the amenities of home in a package that can be hauled down the road with the right tow vehicle. For some, these amazing trailers are home, providing a permanent domicile that can follow along on life’s journeys. Here are the five highest rated fifth-wheel RVs on the RVGuide.com website as ranked by our users.
There’s a reason the Montana has been the highest selling luxury fifth wheel for a number of years. It has five slide outs, a fireplace, a full-size refrigerator, a washer and dryer and more. At 41 feet long, the Montana, like its namesake, is big with a lot of space to spread out. Why not take the party outside with a fully retractable awning and outdoor entertainment center that includes a 32-inch flat-screen TV. The Montana will sleep eight.
The Redwood classifies itself as a residential RV, and with amenities like full hardwood cabinets, luxuriously appointed trim work and high-quality appliances, it’s easy to see why you might consider living in one year-round. Other features include a wine cooler, a 55-inch flat-screen TV with theatre seating and ceiling fans to keep air circulating. It has four slide outs and hydraulic stabilizers. It wouldn’t take much to imagine living in one. Not much at all.
MSRP: $70,000 (approximate)
The Forest River Sierra offers something not often found in most fifth-wheel RVs – a second, enclosed bedroom. This makes it a great family vacation RV. That second bedroom has bunk beds with the bottom one folding into a couch. There is also a separate TV in case the kids want to watch something that mom and dad don’t, and we all know that never happens, right? Plenty of storage and space to entertain, the Sierra is also available with fully insulated walls and windows for comfort even in colder conditions.
MSRP: $38,000 (approximate)
The Sundance offers up a lot of space and high-quality construction. Heartland is so confident in its product that you can arrange to go and watch them being built to see firsthand that the company doesn’t cut any corners when making these RVs. The SD 2880 is nicely appointed with lots of space for hosting guests. The best part is the price. Heartland prides itself on offering luxury at lower prices, and most dealers can set you up in a Sundance for thousands less than comparable RVs.
A second Keystone fifth wheel makes the list with the Alpine. These RVs are ready for adventure with three slide outs and a spacious master bedroom. Like most Keystone RVs, the Alpine is equipped with the IN-Command system that lets you control functions of the RV from a central point – your smartphone. At 39 feet long, the Alpine 3600 is big enough for the family, and small enough to tow across the country with ease. The North Face package adds insulation for cold-weather camping, so don’t let the weather scare you off from enjoying all that North America has to offer.
