If you’re on the hunt for a luxury 5th-wheel camper, you might be surprised how many are reasonably priced. Sure, some of them are absolutely insane but they often look and feel the part. The good news is, the variety is pretty large and if you have a reasonable budget, you’ll find one that measures up.
Whether you have a ½-ton, ¾-ton, or 1-ton truck, there are luxury 5th-wheel options on the market. Just remember that payload capacity is more important with a 5th-wheel setup, with your towing capacity a very close second.
A luxury 5th wheel won’t do you any good if loading some light gear is enough to overwhelm your truck’s payload or towing capacity. With that being said, here is our top ten list of the best luxury 5th-wheel campers on the market.
Top 10 luxury 5th wheel camper brands:
1. Crossroads Redwood RV
