5 Best Small 5th Wheel RV Trailers

5th Wheel RV trailers are known for being big! They have fantastic storage space, multiple rooms, and tall ceilings.

Small isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about 5th wheels.

Today, however, we’re sharing precisely that! These five small 5th wheel RVs are maneuverable and luxurious.

What is a 5th wheel trailer? 

They are the trailers that connect inside the truck bed instead of a hitch on the bumper. 

Anyone who has towed a 5th wheel will tell you that they pull much more smoothly and safely, with less sway (compared to a traditional trailer). It’s even a more comfortable ride in the tow vehicle, since they put the weight over the drive wheels instead of the tail. 

They also offer more room in a shorter trailer, often feel very spacious compared, and are usually easier to maneuver and back in tight spaces.

We recently wrote an article titled, 5 Reasons to Avoid 5th Wheels. Many of the issues in that piece were size related. These smaller 5th wheels solve that problem immediately!

Here are our favorite small 5th wheel RV trailers:

Scamp 5th Wheel

The Scamp 19′ 5th wheel is a fiberglass trailer, making it extra lightweight and aerodynamic, helping your towing and gas mileage! 

This 5th wheel has a queen size bed in the loft area, and can sleep up to 6 people. 

The bathroom separates the loft from the lower part of the trailer, making it a more private area. A Scamp fiberglass 5th wheel only weighs 2000-2900 pounds dry depending on trim level and added features.

Winnebago Minnie Plus 5th Wheel

The Winnebago Minnie Plus is a more standard looking 5th wheel, ranging from 27’3″ to 33’9″ and can sleep up to 7 people. 

With weights from just under 7,220 ranging up to 9,700 pounds dry, the Minnie Plus offers four floor plans to suit any consumer. 

It has different options in features and trims depending on family size. Optional equipment can include a fireplace, theater seating, residential refrigerator, and more.

Northwood Fox Mountain 235 RLS

The Northwood Fox Mountain 235 RLS is another small 5th wheel trailer option. With a dry weight around 8,761 pounds, and sleeping up to 6, the Northwood showcases it’s own built and certified off-road chassis with EZ Lube axles. 

Inside, a cathedral arch ceiling and extra insulation offers roominess and temperature control. Residential appliances and porcelain bathroom fixtures are standard. These units come ready for solar and generator power for your boondocking in luxury.

Coachmen Chaparral 5th wheel

Coachmen Chaparral 5th wheels have residential features and elegant interiors, just like your home. 

Their smallest offering is the 27RKS weighs in at 9803 pounds. It has a queen bed in a slide, and an oversized shower. 

Open Range 284 RLS

Open Range 284 RLS is a contender in the small 5th wheel category as well. 

Dry weight of 10,005, and a pin weight (on the truck bed) of 1,665, puts this unit on the heavier end of the 5th wheels reviewed here due to the upgrades in construction and extra standard features. 

This 5th wheel offers comforts of home. It features an outdoor kitchen, LP quick connect, and frameless windows. Optional unique features like nitrogen-filled tires, and a built-in pet bed give it flare! 

When Choosing Your 5th Wheel

Don’t discount 5th wheels. It’s possible to buy a small-ish unit! There are numerous options with the spaciousness and ease of towing that can be compatible with ¾ ton or smaller pickups (Scamp)!

If a 5th Wheel Isn’t Your Vibe, Try These Small RVs

Discover the Best Free Camping in America

Scamp fiberglass trailers emerged at an ideal time where a sector of the recreational vehicle marketplace began to desire a product that would enable fuel efficiency and easy towing by almost any capable passenger automobile. Constructing travel trailers as well as 19-foot fifth wheel trailers, Scamp products are well equipped with various amenities including air conditioning and hardwood touches. The Minnesota-based Scamp remains a family-owned business. http://www.greatescapesrvcenter.com/--xInventoryDetail?id=2877513,

Items: Towels, Toaster, George Foreman Grill, Frying Pan, Bed Sheet Set, Comforter with Duvet Cover, 3 small rugs, folder with owner manuals I invested 5 years of time and over $25,000 to develop this RV Camper. I started with a Scamp 5th Wheel because its only 6' 8" wide allowing it to get into real tight places. I stripped the original Scamp out completely including the frame. Yes, I started with just the original Fiberglass Shell and original windows. I added fenders, a back storage compartment for the generator plus extra storage for misc items. Then I redesigned the frame and interior. All interior cabinets are 3/4" plywood that is screwed together every 2" - 3" apart with construction adhesive being used . This is one solid trailer. I have always said that you could crash, roll over and over down an embankment and it would stay in one piece. Just hook it back up and go on your way. Modifications completed in 2005. The new owner of this trailer (an explorer or adventurer, a hunter or fisherman) will find this trailer to be uniquely comfortable. Whether your in a snow storm or a down pour, in desert heat or northern sub-zero temps, this camper is extremely cozy. If you are 6'4" tall, this probably won't work for you. I'm 5'11" tall and can stand up tall anywhere inside or stretch out full height in the sleeping bunk - so 6" tall would probably be about the comfortable height limit. Insulated great - with 4 adults inside the trailer in 45 degrees temperatures, you won't need the furnace. Just the body heat will keep it comfortable inside. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

Wheel for sale fiberglass fifth

Sharing is caring!

Since we first started shopping for an RV in 2017, the small 5th wheel trailers have always been one of the designs that immediately caught my eye when we walked on an RV lot.

When I first spotted one of these rigs, I was honestly a bit confused by it. It looked so different from anything I had seen before from the outside…but I knew that I liked it as well. Sure, it had the same 5th wheel hitch design, as usual, but at a size that didn’t completely dwarf me!

Immediately, I felt like it could have a lot of the benefits of a 5th wheel trailer without the tough-to-manage and intimidating-to-tow size that I had seen with so many others.

I think you are really going to like this lineup of small 5th wheels we’ve got for you here, and of course, our hope is that it will help you get out there on the open road as soon as possible for some RVing adventures!

Top 7 Small 5th Wheel Trailers for Your RV Adventures

Before we jump straight into a close look at our top 5th wheel trailer picks, I want to point out a few things that you must be aware of going into this. After all, knowledge is power, right?

The Smallest 5th Wheel Trailers Still Far Outweigh Comparable Travel Trailers

If the overall length and maneuverability of your RV is the top priority in your search, then every one of these trailers we cover will likely hold your attention and get you pretty excited.

However, if weight is also a major factor you should know right away that there is simply no comparison between even the smallest 5th wheel trailers and comparable length travel trailers. Let’s take our full-time RVing travel trailer as an example.

Our Keystone Passport Ultra Lite 2670BH travel trailer was 26 feet long (just over 30 feet with tongue) and weighed in just over 5,000 lbs empty. It had a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 7,000 lbs, meaning I could (supposedly) safely carry almost 2,000 lbs of cargo. (See my post about travel trailer tires for a full discussion of weight ratings on trailers vs. tires. Your safety could absolutely depend on it.)

Keystone Passport travel trailer

Now, if you compare that 26-foot travel trailer weight to the weight of the 27-foot 5th wheel trailer we will cover first below, you will quickly see that there is a 5,000 lb difference in GVWR between these two rigs (12,000 lbs GVWR on 5th wheel). Despite the fact that their living space length is only a difference of one foot, the 5th wheel trailer clearly requires far more truck to tow it.

We towed our travel trailer with a RAM 2500 Long Bed w/5.7L Hemi engine. And we had no issues at all across 35,000+ miles. That truck would not come close to towing the 27-foot 5th wheel.

The takeaway is that as you shop for small 5th wheel trailers, be aware that it will require far more truck to safely tow many of these options (1-ton truck, most likely diesel). Know that going in and be prepared upfront for that additional cost if you don’t already own a 1-ton truck. Smaller and lighter 5th wheels are out there, and we will cover some, but for larger living areas the above guidance holds very true.

Small 5th Wheel Trailers Will Likely Be Much Taller and Require Additional Time and Attention for Route Planning

If you will be doing most of your traveling in the western portion of the US, this may not be quite as much of a concern for you. Clearance issues didn’t seem to be a major factor in that region during our travels.

But we quickly discovered when we started exploring the eastern half of the US that clearance issues did become a major factor, specifically as we moved farther toward the Northeast.

Essentially, you should expect a small 5th wheel trailer to add approximately two feet to your overall height compared to comparable travel trailers. Our travel trailer stood about 10 feet 5 inches high, while our first option below has an exterior height of 12 feet 4 inches. Huge difference, and I guarantee you will feel it in your route planning, especially in the northeastern portion of the U.S.

Don’t be scared…

Please understand that none of this information is meant to dissuade you from purchasing a small 5th wheel trailer. Not at all, because I believe they offer some major advantages you should be aware of in terms of comfort, maneuverability, and convenience.

But if you are wired anything like me, the weight and height factors covered above will definitely make you stop and at least seriously consider the pros and cons. I crave simplicity, and I also desire to control costs as much as possible. So I naturally lean toward the travel trailer side of the equation for my travels. But these factors may be very minor concerns for you, in which case a 5th wheel trailer could be exactly what you want and need.

And with that, we will move on to our first pick for small 5th wheel trailers! These picks are in no particular order; we are offering all of them to you as equally viable options.

#1 – Coachmen Chaparral Lite 25MKS

Coachmen is synonymous with RVing. They have been putting quality RV products on the US road since 1964, and even though they are now a brand under the Forest River, Inc. umbrella, they don’t seem to have lost a step.

small 5th wheels trailers from Coachmen

A very lightweight 5th wheel option, the 25MKS can boast the following specs:

  • GVWR: 9,800 lbs
  • Empty Weight (UVW): 7,549 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 2,251 lbs
  • Hitch Weight: 1,307 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 29′ 3″
  • Exterior Height: 11′ 10″
  • Fresh water capacity: 40 gal
  • Gray water capacity: 33 gal
  • Black water capacity: 33 gal

I have to say I was a little surprised by the smaller capacities on the holding tanks. I guess I naturally expect any 5th wheel to outdo travel trailers on their tank capacities, but this model actually has a smaller gray tank than my 26-foot travel trailer had with the other two tanks very close in size. May not be ideal for everybody.

If you don’t plan on doing any extensive boondocking, then this may be no issue for you at all. Obviously, this is really only a factor when you do not have full hookups for your rig. So if you are more of a “RV resorts and full hookups every night” type of traveler, then there is no cause for concern here.

The Chaparral Lite lineup actually offers 8 different floorplans from 25 feet up to 30 feet in length, with the heaviest model (30 BHS) coming in with a GVWR of 11,500 lbs, a full 1,700 lbs over the 25MKS mark.

This option deserves a solid look, in my opinion, with floorplans to suit just about every situation and preference.

#2 – Winnebago Micro Minnie

If Coachmen is synonymous with RVing, you certainly can’t say anything less about this trusted household name: Winnebago.

small 5th wheel campers from Winnebago

And I was absolutely shocked to see all of the details of this “tiny wonder”, the Winnebago Micro Minnie. Let me show you what I’m talking about using the 2405BH floorplan as our example (although all floorplans have very similar specs that are identical in many categories):

  • GVWR: 7,700 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 5,740 lbs
  • Hitch Weight (Dry): 1,140 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 26′ 9″
  • Exterior Height: 11′ 5″
  • Fresh water capacity: 31 gal
  • Gray water capacity: 25 gal
  • Black water capacity: 25 gal

Two things shocked me about these specs: The very low dry weight (only about 700 lbs more than my travel trailer, which I think is awesome), and the small holding tank capacities (again…all of them smaller than my travel trailer).

I’m not faulting the manufacturer for the tank capacities, because the reality is that there may not be a market demand for higher capacities. I just know that these tanks would not work for me, because when we hit the road again I will be fully prepared to boondock until my heart is content, hitting every single Harvest Hosts location I can possibly find.

Note: They do have other floorplans in this series with 50 gal gray water capacities…and that could possibly make this a contender for me, all things considered.

But I really do love the super lightweight options that Winnebago offers with this lineup. And with their solid name backing it up, the Micro Minnie should not be ruled out lightly (no pun intended).

What About ‘Trying Before You Buy’ with Fifth Wheel Rentals?

Pardon the interruption, but I think at this point you should be aware of our plan when it comes to finding the next RV that will be perfect for our needs. It might be exactly the idea you’re looking for.

You see, we have decided to try renting our way to our next RV purchase, which you can read all about by clicking here.

The worst thing any of us can imagine is making the wrong choice when it comes time to purchase an RV. That is especially true if you plan to live in it full-time! (Our most likely path.) So we are trying several different RVs on for size, from small camper vans to spacious travel trailers to adventurous driveables.

So far, we have used Outdoorsy as our rental platform of choice. And we have been very pleased. Here are a couple of small fifth wheels (see images below) in our area that rent for $150-$200 per night. A weekend in one of these will be money well-spent and will give you a much better idea of whether this is a realistic RV option for your particular situation. Not to mention it will be a blast to just get away!

So, maybe it’s time for you to try before you buy. At least consider it as one reasonable option on your path to your next small fifth wheel purchase!

__________________________________________________________

#3 – Escape 5.0TA

It’s time to leave the “mainstream” RV pack and head north of the border for the next option in our rundown of small 5th wheel trailers: The Escape 5.0TA Fifth Wheel takes small to a whole new level.

You can tell immediately that this is a trailer of a different sort. From the fiberglass shell to the reduced height, it’s obvious we are heading into a different realm altogether here. Let’s take a closer look at this tiny beauty from Canadian manufacturer Escape Trailer Industries.

  • GVWR: 5,500 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 3,810 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 1,690 lbs
  • Hitch Weight (Dry): 630 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 21′ 2″
  • Exterior Height: 9′ 7″
  • Fresh water capacity: 28 gal
  • Gray Water Capacity: 28 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 30 gal
small 5th wheel trailer details and features

While this small 5th wheel trailer might not be ideal for many folks who are interested in the full-time RV lifestyle, it would certainly be an ideal escape pod for a couple looking to get away and soak in more of the natural world for a weekend or a week.

I do find it pretty odd, because it defies practical use, that they made the black tank capacity higher than the gray tank capacity. But hey, maybe there is a logical explanation for it that you can determine with additional digging if this one ticks all of the other boxes for you.

#4 – KZ Sportsmen 231RK

Ladies and gentlemen, this one really has my attention. I’m seeing quite a few things to love about this unique rig, including the tank capacities and rear storage rack!

small 5th wheel trails from Sportsmen

There are several key points in the specs below that really make this a contender in my book…and one puzzling number. Let’s see if you can spot the one that’s throwing me off:

  • GVWR: 7,000 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 6,100 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 900 lbs
  • Hitch Weight (Dry): 840 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 25′ 3″
  • Exterior Height: 11′ 11″
  • Fresh water capacity: 38 gal
  • Gray Water Capacity: 93 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 53 gal

While I love the fact that it has about the same GVWR as my 26-foot travel trailer did and a surprisingly low hitch weight, it’s very curious that they only equipped it to carry 900 lbs in cargo.

For a full-timing couple, that is going to be pretty tough to manage, based on our experience. I’m sure it is doable, but it could give you some headaches along the way since most rigs this size have cargo capacities at or near 2,000 lbs (like my travel trailer did).

small 5th wheel trailer floor plan

Having said that, I LOVE the tank capacities they have equipped her with! The 38 gal freshwater capacity is respectable, but 93 gal and 53 gal respectively for gray and black water capacities are among the highest I have come across for this size rig. A couple could probably boondock pretty comfortably with those numbers for a decent amount of time. Yes, please!

And clearance? Another big plus here at just under 12 feet, because some comparable models from competing brands will rise to 13 feet (like our next option below in the lineup). Of course, you should be aware that what you gain on the exterior in terms of manageable height you also give up on the interior height. Always give and take…

Overall, I see plenty to love and plenty of reasons to dive deeper into this small 5th wheel trailer option. And I should mention that they have 25-foot and 26-foot floorplans available to explore on the site as well, so go take a closer look before you rule this one out.

#5 – Forest River Rockwood Ultra Lite 2441WS

Forest River Inc. boasts one of the broadest lineups of RVs in the industry, with a total of 7 RV brands under its corporate umbrella (including Coachmen that we covered above). They know the game well and their Rockwood designs seem to reflect that.

small 5th wheel trailer from Rockwood

Let’s examine the specs on this solid option so that we can compare apples to apples in this quest for the “perfect” small 5th wheel trailer:

  • GVWR: 9,165 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 7,149 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 2,016 lbs
  • Hitch Weight (Dry): 1,165 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 28′ 5″
  • Exterior Height: 13′ 0″
  • Fresh water capacity: 60 gal
  • Gray Water Capacity: 45 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 45 gal

As you can see, this rig starts out about 1,000 lbs heavier than the KZ Sportsmen we just looked at…but it also has a more reasonable cargo capacity of just over 2,000 lbs. So full-timing seems to definitely be a viable possibility for this rig.

I mentioned above that you have to really decide what is more important to you in terms of vehicle height: Exterior height or interior height.

If you are exceptionally tall, you will probably have to give more weight to interior height (so you have livable space) and then deal with the added exterior height and the potential stresses it can introduce to your route planning and overall driving experience.

small 5th wheel camper floorplan from Rockwood

But overall, I feel like this 24-foot RV offers a very livable space for a couple, with additional convertible bed options for others along for the ride. That 18-foot awning and exterior gas grill they included doesn’t hurt either, because we all know it’s really nice to have an enjoyable outdoor space while living the RV lifestyle.

#6 – Keystone Springdale 253FWRE

Here’s something interesting: Even though I owned a Keystone travel trailer and looked pretty extensively at their lineup before purchasing, I did not know until very recently that they offered a small fifth-wheel trailer in this series!

We even conducted a video tour recently of a smaller Springdale travel trailer, but somehow I never realized that fifth wheels were also an option here.

At 25 feet in length (well, almost 33 feet total length), the Springdale 253FWRE may be a bit beefier than you would expect. Given the lightweight options that Keystone offers in the travel trailer category, I guess I was hoping to see something close to 7,000 lbs GVWR in the fifth wheels. But that is not in the cards. Here are the specs you desire:

  • GVWR: 10,300 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 8,615 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 1,685 lbs
  • Hitch Weight (Dry): 1,500 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 32′ 10″
  • Exterior Height: 12′ 4″
  • Fresh water capacity: 52 gal
  • Gray Water Capacity: 39 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 39 gal

So as you can see, after moving to the lighter end of the spectrum with our previous picks, this option does take us back to where we started in the 10,000 lb GVWR range (like the Coachmen). This is definitely still considered small by fifth wheel standards, but it’s nothing like the Winnebago or KZ options we covered above.

small 5th wheel camper floorplan

Having said that, it does have a respectable cargo capacity and a lower profile than the Rockwood (by about 8 inches), so it might be a great fit for your needs.

On tank capacities, it clearly doesn’t WOW me like the KZ, but it has definitely still got the Winnebago and Escape options beat. And for a couple, these capacities are still very doable for extensive boondocking options (with some reasonable measures in place to minimize tank usage).

#7 – Jayco Eagle HT 25.5REOK

Last but not least, for our final slot in this fine group of small 5th wheel trailers, let’s take a look at another industry leader: Jayco. With a GVWR staying just a hair under 10,000 lbs, this option has plenty to get your attention.

small 5th wheel trailer from Jayco

Let’s be honest: This option isn’t likely to win any awards for style or colors. Nope, this one is built to kind of blend in with the grasslands of the Midwest. But my guess is this is not your first concern as you shop for a fifth wheel. So let’s see what those all-important specs look like on this well-equipped rig:

  • GVWR: 9,995 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 7,775 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 2,220 lbs
  • Hitch Weight (Dry): 1,405 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 28′ 8″
  • Exterior Height: 12′ 8″
  • Fresh Water Capacity: 42 gal
  • Gray Water Capacity: 32.5 + 32.5 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 32.5 gal
small 5th wheel trailer from Jayco floorplan

A couple of things really jump out with this floorplan that we can take a closer look at.

First, this model is the only one to offer a secondary gray tank of 32.5 gal, giving it a total capacity of 65 gal. While this still doesn’t outdo the KZ Sportsmen at 93 gal, it comes in a very respectable second and gets high marks from me for opening up boondocking options.

Second, be advised also that this is the second tallest option in our lineup at 12′ 8″, coming in second only to the Forest River Rockwood. I’ll say it again: this would be a factor for this simple-loving guy to consider before making a purchase, but it may not even make you bat an eyelash.

Either way, it’s best to be completely aware of it ahead of time and prepared to handle it appropriately.

Bonus #8 (Reader Recommended): Grand Design Reflection 150 Series 240RL

**Shout out to TREKKN reader, Blake, for turning me on to this small fifth wheel option. He suggested that it should be part of this list after I published the post several months ago, and I agreed that it needed to be added. If you have other suggested models, let me know in the comments below.**

If you don’t know Grand Design, you are missing out. When I first purchased my travel trailer in 2017, it was parked right next to a Grand Design travel trailer in the storage lot for a few months. I got to know the owner and he invited me inside to take a look at what it offered, and I have to say I was impressed.

But when I was introduced to these small fifth wheel options in the Reflection 150 Series, I was even more impressed with the brand. Let’s take a look at the important specs this particular model has to offer:

  • GVWR: 9,495 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 7,691 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 1,804 lbs
  • Hitch Weight: 1,272 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 29′ 11″
  • Exterior Height: 12′
  • Fresh Water Capacity: 52 gal
  • Grey Water Capacity: 71 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 39 gal

As you can see, our hitch weight (1,272 lbs) on this option has dropped over 130 lbs from our previous offering, keeping it in what I consider a comfortable and manageable range.

Cargo capacity (1,804 lbs) on the other hand is a nice healthy number near the top end of our range of options here. This makes it an equally reasonable option for the full-time RVer looking for that ideal home on wheels.

In addition, it has a relatively low exterior height (12′) compared to the rest of the lineup, making route planning not quite as much of a challenge.

With the rear living layout, similar to the majority of the options we have highlighted, this would make the perfect “getaway vehicle” for any couple looking for comfort and class. With Grand Design’s claim that it is “half-ton towable” (do your own due diligence here) and offers “90-degree turning radius without a slider hitch in a 5.5 ft truck bed”, this one certainly deserves a long, hard look!

Bonus #9 (Reader Recommended): Keystone Cougar 23MLS

**Shout out to TREKKN reader, Pam, who owns one of these small 5th wheel trailers and is apparently completely in love with it.

Here she is in her own words: “This model makes great use of space, has plenty of storage, feels roomy, efficient and cozy all at once. Her maiden voyage was over 10,000 miles and 4 months long and she had NO issues at all.” Thanks for pointing this one out, Pam!**

Our full-time rig in 2017-18 was a Keystone travel trailer, so we do have a special place in our hearts for this brand, no doubt about it. But on a more practical level, this 5th wheel ticks all of the boxes for me: compact, simple, relatively lightweight, and just all-around functional and comfortable. So let’s take a closer look…

Keystone Cougar 23MLS Small 5th Wheel Trailer - Half-Ton Towable

Get ready, here come the specs (do you love them as much as I do?):

  • GVWR: 10,000 lbs
  • Dry Weight: 7,107 lbs
  • Cargo Capacity: 2,893 lbs
  • Hitch Weight: 1,335 lbs
  • Exterior Length: 26′ 10″
  • Exterior Height: 12′
  • Fresh Water Capacity: 60 gal
  • Grey Water Capacity: 60 gal
  • Black Water Capacity: 30 gal

This model is part of Keystone RV’s “Half-Ton Towable” lineup. It should go without saying, but I’m going to say it (again): Don’t take their word for it. Check your towing capacity and payload numbers. Then check them again. Then get your buddy to check them. Before you BUY. Please. And after you buy? Check those tires and make sure they are really up for the job.

Keystone Cougar 23MLS Small 5th Wheel Trailer Floorplan

Now, back to those numbers. This model has a very impressive cargo capacity at nearly 3,000 lbs. And that overall length of less than 27 feet makes me salivate a little bit, to be honest. (Did I mention I like small and simple?)

I’m slightly underwhelmed with the Black Water Capacity at 30 gal (2nd smallest on our list), but it’s not a deal breaker in my book. At least that Grey Water tank is pretty beefy at 60 gal and will allow an RVing couple quite a few days “off the grid” with a little bit of caution on water usage.

Overall, even though it is quite a bit heavier than a few options on our list, it still is manageable with many half-ton trucks and would be a fairly easy tow even for a relative newbie to the towing game. That keeps it close to the top of my mental list if we end up going the small 5th wheel trailer route with our next RV purchase.

Which of these Small 5th Wheel Trailers Is Going to Get You On the Road?

We’ve pretty much seen it all here, friend. With options ranging from 3,810 lbs to 8,615 lbs in dry weight, from 9′ 7″ to 13′ 0″ in height and from 21′ 2″ and 32′ 10″ in total length, it’s now up to you to decide which factors are the most important to you and which ones you can just live with.

Of course, one major factor that we haven’t gone into here is the price of each option. With so many features potentially available on each one that could cause the price to vary widely, we figured it would be best to leave the sticker prices to you as you really get out there and start doing your research.

As we’ve said before, there is no perfect RV out there; it’s always a game of give and take, pros and cons. My goal is to help you most effectively and efficiently weigh those pros and cons, comparing apples to apples, so that you can locate and purchase the rig that is best for you and your family.

At the end of the day, you can make fantastic memories in any of these small 5th wheel trailers…and we truly hope that you do! But let us know which one of these is the right fit for you, or if you’ve found another option that you can share with us and add to the list.

Now enough reading. Let’s go RVing!

The Best Fiberglass Travel Trailers

RVs are constructed in a number of different ways, but many follow the same basic blueprint: Start with a steel or aluminum frame, build up the walls with wood and/or aluminum, more framing and composite materials, cover the structure with a roof and wrap the entire unit with either aluminum panels or gelcoat fiberglass. While conventional construction methods work well, another successful strategy has been in place for years and continues to flourish—molded fiberglass.

What are Fiberglass RVs?

RVs built from molded fiberglass are sleek and shiny, and share their origins with the marine industry (think boat hull). In a molded-fiberglass trailer, fifth-wheel, or truck camper, the rigid fiberglass body actually serves as the main framing element, as well as the interior and exterior skin. The body of the RV is essentially two pieces that clamshell together, resulting in a durable, corrosion-resistant body that is quite strong and can have several advantages over traditionally built RVs.

“The two-piece fiberglass shell has one main seam around the center beltline,” explains Grant Bilodeau, president of Bigfoot RV. “Traditional trailers are made of many separate side, floor, and roof panels, and are then screwed together with many moldings and seals. As RVs are meant to travel down the road, a traditional trailer will flex over time, and all the extra seams and joints become higher maintenance and risk points for leaking. With a fiberglass trailer, there is only one seam to worry about.”

“Fiberglass molded trailers are sprayed into a mold with gelcoat and fiberglass,” Bilodeau adds. “The glass content is like the rebar in concrete — it gives you all your strength, as the resin binds it all together.”

RV.COM

Advantages of Fiberglass

Fiberglass construction can also lead to some positive results when it comes to fuel mileage, handling, and durability. “Our fiberglass campers are 25 percent lighter than conventionally built truck campers,” says Keith Donkin, general manager at Northern Lite Manufacturing. “They are very aerodynamically designed for improved fuel efficiency, and they feature a very low center of gravity, which eliminates the sway of a conventionally built camper.”

Improved towing characteristics and longevity do come with a trade-off. Molded-fiberglass RVs can be a bit more costly than their conventionally built counterparts. But manufacturers of fiberglass RVs claim the difference in price can easily be amortized over the lifetime of the RV.

RV.COM

Trailers That Last

“Generally, people like our trailers because they are easy to tow, easy to set up, and they last forever,” reports Kent Eveland, president of Scamp Trailers. “Most of the trailers we built in the 1970s are still in use.”

Robert P. Partee, general sales manager of Oliver Travel Trailers, agrees. “Most fiberglass trailers hold their value over the years much better than the standard build types,” he says. “Constructing travel trailers with fiberglass has been flying under the radar for years.”

Often eclectic, sometimes retro-chic, and always eye-catching, molded-fiberglass RVs are frequently the focus of online communities and club rallies. “We find our trailers appeal to all ages in part because of the nostalgia factor, as well as the simplicity and weight,” says Heather Gardella, president of Dub Box USA.

Check out the following collection of some of the best fiberglass RVs on the market.

Bigfoot

Bigfoot Industries manufactures a variety of travel trailers and truck campers, all featuring clamshell molded fiberglass construction. Bigfoot overlaps the top shell onto the bottom and uses a special sealant to further guard against water penetration. The 2500 series travel trailers include R-8 insulation, which, when combined with the fiberglass base (less conductive than aluminum or steel), creates a more livable four-season RV, according to Bilodeau. Floorplans ranging from 17 to 25 feet are available. The 25B25FB boasts a full rear bath, sleeping space for up to six, and standards that include a porcelain toilet, aluminum wheels, heated and enclosed tanks, and a living-area skylight. The option to enclose the A-frame and add cargo space is not only practical but looks great as well. Other options include a solar-power system, 11,000-Btu roof air conditioner, exterior speakers, and an electric A-frame jack.

 

RV.COM

Casita

For 33 years, Casita has been building lightweight fiberglass trailers. The 17-foot Casita Spirit Deluxe offers comfortable sleeping arrangements for three, with a bit more space for guests, provided they are of a smaller variety. Both sleeping areas convert to dinettes by day, meaning the trailer can easily accommodate more than it can sleep before the sun goes down. A couch/bunk-bed option ups the ante even more. The surprisingly wide-open floorplan means occupants won’t trip over each other while moving about. In Deluxe models, a large, full-featured bathroom is located at the front of the trailer, as is a roomy storage wardrobe. Standard features include custom marine-grade fiberglass furniture, carpet-lined storage compartments, and a powered roof vent. Owners can also opt for LED lighting, a microwave, an electric A-frame jack, and a larger gray-water holding tank.

RV.COM

Dub Box

Dub Box USA manufactures lightweight fiberglass trailers reminiscent of the Volkswagen Microbus popular in the 1960s and ’70s. Dub Box trailers are not true Volkswagen conversions but are in fact manufactured from a fiberglass mold made from the vintage VW Bus. Each Dub Box trailer comes equipped with classic moon-style hubcaps, a hot/cold outdoor shower, a two-burner stove, a sink, a 3-cubic-foot refrigerator, an LP-gas water heater, an L-shaped convertible couch with 4-inch cushions, a folding dinette table, and Sunbrella weather curtains for the pop-top. Options include air conditioning, solar panels, a luggage roof rack, and a storage box on the A-frame. Buyers get to select the paint color for the exterior to match their tow vehicle.

RV.COM

Eggcamper

Eggcamper trailers are ultralightweight and offer a fun way to enjoy RVing. Available only from the factory in Grandville, Michigan, and weighing less than 2,000 pounds (dry, without options), the Eggcamper can be towed by almost any properly equipped truck, van, or SUV. The all-white trailers may look spartan inside, but they contain all the amenities needed for weekend fun, including sleeping space for two to four, a galley with a stainless sink, a 2.4-cubic-foot refrigerator, available air-conditioner, appliances, and a lavatory with a toilet (or a large storage area instead). Plus, the smooth interior makes cleanup a breeze. The Dexter Torflex suspension is a welcome inclusion, as are the power roof vent and radius safety-glass windows with screens and miniblinds. LP-gas options are available, in addition to the electric-only model powered by an appropriately sized AC generator, along with the standard 30-amp converter with charger.

Escape

Another big name in the molded-fiberglass market is Escape Trailers. Based in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Escape offers several fiberglass travel trailers and even a fifth-wheel. All Escape trailers are compact and lightweight for easy towing, and the Escape 21 is designed specifically for tow vehicles with weight ratings down to 5,000 pounds. But don’t be fooled by the diminutive size. Escape trailers are equipped with full galleys, bathrooms, and living areas, in addition to oak cabinetry, high-grade linoleum flooring, and an insulated headliner. Other impressive standards include two roof vents, LED ceiling lighting, full-surround overhead storage, and a holding-tank monitor. Popular options range from appliance upgrades to a stereo, a water filter, and a solar charging system.

Happier Camper

In addition to offering vintage restored fiberglass rentals, Happier Camper now builds the unique HC1 trailer. The base-price HC1 begins as an empty shell built using bonded double-hull fiberglass with 1.5-inch honeycomb fiberglass flooring. Grooves are embedded in the flooring to accommodate the modular components (think Legos) that will make up the custom floorplan, including a kitchenette, benches, cushions, an AC/DC refrigerator cube, tables, floor panels — there’s even a portable-potty cube. Buyers can configure the layout exactly as they’d like it, and the price is determined by the selected modules. LED lighting comes standard, as do built-in rear stabilizing jacks and an undercarriage-mounted full-size spare tire. Add-ons include compatible comfort heating, stereos, electric fans, and moon-style hubcaps.

Northern Lite

Another Canadian manufacturer, Northern Lite Manufacturing in Kelowna, British Columbia, builds fiberglass truck campers designed to withstand extreme weather.

There’s even a full 14-inch basement with heated and enclosed storage tanks. Sleep like a baby on the 60 x 80-inch queen bed, or take a warm shower in the large bathroom area. Options include an air conditioner, electric jacks, LED lighting in the electric awning, battery disconnect, an extended patio bumper, and a boat rack and ladder. With a floor-length of more than 11 feet, this camper weighs in at 1,400 to 2,000 pounds lighter than comparable conventionally built campers with the same features, offering buyers the best of both worlds.
