It wasn’t easy but in the end, these are the top 10 best 5th wheel campers we found to have the least issues with owners, have excellent standard features and a good selection of floor plans. Let’s get started.

The Heartland RV Landmark 5th wheel is luxury end to end. It comes with features and amenities only found on high-end 5th wheels. The Landmark is priced at the higher end of the range but from the reviews I’ve read, it is definitely worth it if you can afford it. It has features usually not found in typical 5th wheels such as power bed lifts, 3 standard air-conditioning units, hardwood window sill and much more.
This camper is huge and is perfect fulltime RV living. It is spacious and feels like a home with all of the features and amenities you find in a home. What I like about the Heartland Landmard is the plethora of standard features. They do offer over a dozen upgrades if you feel the need to spend more. All Heartland RVs come with a 3-year structural warranty and a 1-year warranty for the rest of the RV. Their luxury brands which include the Big Horn and Big Country are warranted for full-time living and have an industry-best 2-year warranty.

Right from the start, we like the Coachmen Chaparral and have selected it as one of our best 5th wheel campers due to its use of Azdel Composite panels for its sidewalls. If you don’t know what Azdel is I wrote an extensive article on what it is and which manufacturers use it. You can check out the article right here.
The Coachmen Chaparral is a mid-profile 5th wheel which means they are designed with a 3/4 gas or diesel towing truck in mind. They combine excellent towing ability with a lighter weight yet still maintain lots of room, luxury and features typically you’d in 5th wheels that are generally priced much higher.
You will find a host of excellent standard features on this camper as well as some optional packages that will upgrade components or materials.
