We have a Flagstaff 5th Wheel 8526RLWS and rented an Ultra-Lite 26 foot TT for a year before we bought our camper. IMO, the 5th wheel has WAY more room per foot of length towed.
No matter how much you love your husband, there is gonna come a time on a rainy day when your gonna want to be at one end and he on the other! LOL
The extra living space and "basement storage" just can't be beat. I also think the 5th wheel is easier to tow, especially in winds and heavy traffic. Just be aware that a 5th wheel tracks "inside" of the tow vehicle and the TT tracks "mostly" behind it. Thus if you miss something with the truck, you will most likely miss it with the TT.
If you miss it while towing a 5th wheel you need to be aware the 5th wheel camper is up to several feet (depending on turn angle) inside the turn and can strike what the truck missed.
I also think its easier to back, but your experience might differ. IMO, it IS slightly different than a TT but you will quickly pick it up.
