It generally comes down to pros. vs. cons.
For me, the pros of a fifth wheel won.
I like that I have more headroom inside (at the cost of being taller outside *and* having more steps to deal with).
I like that hookup is simple (just back into the hitch & throw the handle vs. sway controls, weight distributing hitches, etc.).
I also couldn't wrap my head around a TT over 30' (I know lots of people do it)- I just felt
like I needed a FW for those lengths.
The loss of my truck bed for storage was made up for by the basement storage on the fiver. I like that I'm not moving stuff back and forth from the truck to the camper and vice versa.
I never found a TT with the shower the size that we have in our FW. (Nor in many other FWs for that matter.)
