I went 5th wheel. I find it easier to tow, no sway issues, even when I'm light in the front (RZR in the back and all the tanks are empty). I also find a 5th harder to backup then a tag, meaning when you have to cut sharp and fit into a tight space - a 5th wheel responds very slow when backing. In a real tight turn you can end up in a pretty awkward position with your tow vehicle. My issues, others with 5th wheels are better at it than I am. A tag will respond immediately to what you want it to do when backing, and you usually need less room to maneuver when backing up and turning into a tight spot.

Good luck. Enjoy the process.

Don't tow a fifth wheel or you'll HAVE to have it! However a well set up tag, that's not too big, will tow pretty well. I'm too spoiled to ever go back to a tag.

Good luck, hope you don't have to order one, our new one JUST arrived at the dealer today, we ordered it March 2, 2108.


We are looking at a Sandstorm 251GSLC overall length is 31’ which is max we can get to store here at the house.

That's quite the upgrade for you guys. You deserve it. Good luck in your search.

That's my limiting factor as well, plus getting it into the driveway! My son has a Sandstorm and it has been a great trailer, about two years old, not one issue. Small one though
