Big Rigs – Luxury Fifth Wheels and Toy Haulers

RVs over 10,000 lbs. are considered a big rig. You’ll need a particular towing vehicle for these luxury fifth wheels and toy haulers because of the additional weight. These heavier RVs are often ideal for full-time RV living as they feature more residential amenities like a full-sized refrigerator, shower, and more. This Jayco North Point fifth wheel is a prime example of the luxurious details that are included in many big rigs.

Additional Features:

  • Fireplace
  • Residential-Style Pantry
  • Two Bedrooms
