The question came up over lunch today. Can you buy a 21 - 22 ft 5th wheel that can be towed with a F150 pick-up. I don't know, I've looked at a lot of trailers but not a 5th wheel that short. What manfacturer, etc? Thanks.

Although we have not made an exhaustive search, the smallest that we found was from Pilgrim:

Of course, it's not an Outback - but of good quality anyway...

I know early on, there were quite a few short fifth wheels out there, but I sure have not seen any for awhile.

I have to ask myself though - and this is just my perspective - what's the point?
You are giving up cargo carrying capacity for a trailer that is not that long or heavy to start with. I just don't see the benefit. :dunno:

Maybe that's why you don't see many on the road...

Not for me. Friends who have previously towed a fiver were thinking about something smaller they could pull with their F150, and not have to upgrade the TV. We just got to wondering about it over lunch Sunday. Thanks for the replys.

Good luck to you and your friend. If they decide against it, we know what trailer type they should buy.... :D :D :D :D :D

I saw a small 5er this morning being pulled by a F150 (97-03). I did not see an obvious name on it. It did look like the truck was overloaded, squatting pretty badly in the back.
