Big Beautiful Black 5th Wheel

Saw this beauty parked in a local RV park near a military installation. This is easily the biggest 5th wheel I've ever seen. Triple axels, and at least 50 feet long. Yes, that's the built-in deck option, and yes, that's a 42" TV behind the cover on the wall under the speakers. I stopped to talk to the lady there, and she told me it has TWO bathrooms, and a house-style fridge among its various amenities. She said they are LIVING in it for the next 2 years while stationed at the base.

I saw one just like it at a local RV dealer but it also had a deck out the back of the TT. Also triple slides.

On another site that I'm on, someone posted about their 50' long fifth wheel. They had it custom made. It didn't appear to be nearly as nice as this one.

Did you get a manufacturer at all? I know there was one major manufacturer who was/is offering a deck option.

Things you see in an RV Park

Again, not campground- but saw this at the local grocery store in St. Clair, MI. 4 people got out of it.

Road warrior makes one with both a side and rear deck/patio...heartland may be the brand and road warrior may be the model..

I just don't know of any "regular" manufacturer who makes a 50' fifth wheel. 42-43' seem to be the maximum without a custom build.
