Motor Home or Fith Wheel? Jon 7-30-10  
Which is best for full timeing a motor Home or a fith wheeler?
Re: Motor Home or Fith Wheel? Jeff Hardy 8-22-10  
I'm just starting to look into the same question...but what I think I've figured out is that I want a 5th Wheeler for the following reasons:

1- They hold their value much better than a motorhome.

2- If you have a motorhome, then you have to have another vehicle. I don't want to HAVE to move my whole motorhome to run to the local store.

3- From what I have read, they are easier to maneuver than a motorhome.

4- This may not be as true as it used to be, but 5th wheelers seem to have more floorplan options available, and more usable space.

That's what I've figured out so far....

Thanks for that Jeff... in a similar situation at my end too.

WE are looking at being full timers as well. However, some of the arguments aren't really valid. You don't have to have a tow vehicle with a motor home. You can shop in all kinds of malls in which you can park a motor home. Do your shopping before you go to a camp ground. A fifth wheel isn't easier to maneuver than a motorhome. I have driven both transports as well as buses. I can tell you right up front that a bus is easy to drive and park than a fifth wheel any day. Motorhomes have as much space as a fifth wheel any day. Of course I am talking about a Class A motorhome not a B or C
With a fifth wheel you also have to worry about the tow vehicle and maintanance. I some cases, the tow vehicle get worst fuel mileage than a motorhome.
I have made up my mind that a Class A motorhome is the way to go.
