Fifth wheel RV floor plans are available at Highland Ridge RV and Keystone RV Company. While traditional fifth wheel floor plans place the master bedroom at the front of the unit, over the hitch, as of 2015, there are options for locating it at the rear of the trailer.
The floor plan of an RV determines its convenience for the user. Families with young children benefit from a bunkhouse bedroom that provides separate bunk beds for the children. Retirees who spend several months of the year in the fifth wheel prefer a trailer that provides additional living space. If the owner enjoys cooking, a back kitchen provides more space and reduces traffic through the area. However, the back kitchen arrangement is not as popular as other floor plans and tends to reduce the value of the RV when the owner decides to sell it.
In most fifth wheel RVs, the area above the hitch is elevated and requires walking up a few steps. Buyers with limited mobility should consider these steps before making their purchase. By consulting with the dealer, they are able to make informed decisions for the best option to meet their needs.
The addition of expansion units to the RV provides additional living space. It helps the unit to feel more like a traditional home. However, the setup and takedown times of the trailer increase slightly with this option.
