Used 5th Wheel Campers for Sale

Used fifth-wheel campers are an excellent option when you want to buy a fifth-wheel camper but don't have the budget for a brand-new one. These pre-owned models feature all the best amenities of modern units with significant savings.


Buying a used fifth-wheel camper is a significant investment.

Buying a fifth-wheel RV is a major decision. Fifth-wheel campers require a special hitch and a truck powerful enough to tow them. They often provide more space than other travel trailers. Things to think about when buying a fifth-wheel RV include:

  • Your towing vehicle (a truck), its tow capacity, and its gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)
  • The fifth-wheel trailer's unloaded vehicle weight (UVW) and GVWR
  • The vehicle's profile (full- or mid-profile)
  • The vehicle's amenities and fixtures, like king-size beds or auto-level capabilities
  • The kind of floor plan you want, including how many people the RV sleeps

Different floor plans offer varying passenger capacities, privacy, entertainment capabilities, and more. Tour as many floor plans as possible to get a feel for what might make sense for your needs and preferences.

How to Hook Up a Fifth Wheel RV

Before you hit the road on your next adventure, properly attach your fifth-wheel travel trailer by taking the following steps

  • Ensure you have installed your fifth wheel hitch the right way. The hitch should sit so the trailer's pin is located an inch in front of the center point of your truck's wheel axle. Follow the instructions as closely as possible.
  • Always remember to connect your trailer on a level surface and use wheel chucks to keep it from moving.
  • Ensure you have enough room to get underneath the trailer.
  • Use your fifth-wheel's landing gear and adjust the trailer's height so that the bottom plate of the pin box is an inch lower than the fifth-wheel plate.
  • Open the hitch's jaws. Continue backing up so that the trailer's pin rides up the fifth-wheel hitch into the jaws.
  • Failure to align correctly could lead to damage to your hitch.
  • Connect the emergency breakaway cable to a permanent piece of the truck. This force's the trailer's brakes to activate if the two become separated.
  • Perform a pull test to ensure everything is connected correctly. If there are no issues, raise the landing gear and remove the wheel chucks. You're ready to go!

Should I buy a used 5th Wheel RV

Fifth-wheel campers offer many advantages, making them a perfect choice for many RVers. Fifth Wheels are manageable and stable to tow and large enough to keep your essentials. In addition, fifth-wheel RVs typically have larger floor plans that allow you to sleep more guests, entertain in comfort, and enjoy many of the amenities of an in-home kitchen. A fifth-wheel camper also gives you the flexibility of parking and leaving camp in your towing vehicle.

Buying used doesn't mean sacrificing quality, however. You can get a great used fifth wheel for less than a new one. That can save you a lot of money upfront and may even mean cheaper insurance rates.

Concerned about cleanliness? Many of our used RVs come stamped with our Certified Clean Seal. This shows that they have undergone extensive cleaning and refurbishing processes that meet rigorous standards.

If you're in the market for a fifth-wheel camper but don't need to purchase the “latest and greatest,” buying a used RV can be the best option.


Compared to other types of travel trailers, fifth-wheel campers are larger. Some people look for models that allow them to live on the road full-time, while others are better suited for family trips and vacations.

One of the best advantages of a fifth-wheel camper is flexibility: You can drop the RV off at a campsite and detach your truck to drive around town. But before you buy a fifth-wheel camper, you must ensure your towing vehicle is powerful enough to pull it. Use our tow guide to ensure your tow vehicle can safely haul your camper and cargo.

As you compare campers, remember to watch out for red flags like water damage, electrical issues, and structural problems. If the model you're looking at features upgrades like auto-leveling, slide-outs, or a black tank flush, ask if you can see these things demonstrated before you purchase.

What are the advantages of owning a used 5th wheel camper? Buying a used fifth-wheel camper offers many advantages. Most notably, buying used can help you save a significant amount of money on the purchase price and insurance. Camping World dealerships have a wide variety of used models available for purchase. Because this type of RV is well-built, they stand up to use over time. Used models also often have upgrades or amenities that would be costly on newer models.

What should I consider when buying a used 5th wheel camper? Before you sign on the dotted line, consider the following details:

  • Construction and materials: Make sure it's a durable, well-built camper that can withstand regular use.
  • Floor plan: Different models have unique floor plans, so choose one that meets your needs.
  • Features and amenities: If you want air conditioning, a working kitchen, bathrooms, and appliances, you'll want to seek out models with those items.
  • Towing capacity: Make sure your vehicle has sufficient power to tow your chosen model. There's nothing worse than falling in love with an RV only to find out you can't pull it with your current vehicle.
  • Age and mileage: A great bargain on a used camper might turn out badly if it hasn't been well-maintained over the years.
