Fifthwheel Toyhauler

We've had 3 TT's and my wife keeps wanting a Fifthwheel, but I need the truck bed for UTV and misc stuff. So I figured if we acquired a 5er Tool hauler it would solve our situation.
But we have some qualifying criteria.... Need to be 30 feet or less, and under 12 feet max heighth to fit in our storage building.
Would like to have a slide to open up the living area some.

I've done some searching online, but searching common subjects still means going to every brand line to see what is offered.

Anyone have a suggestion that will fit the bill.

That size will be tough, especially under 12' tall. 5th wheel toy haulers generally are 13' +

I do not think you are going to find a FW under 12.5 Ft.

Looks like you will be either modifying your shed or getting a new one. Wives always tend to win......

Fifthwheel Toyhauler

Not sure why you want a fifth wheel but if it has to do with sway or other handling issues get a TT or toyhauler and install a Hensley arrow or pro pride 3 hitch. I bought and installed a Hensley arrow and it was the best money Iíve ever spent. Sway is eliminated before it begins and I think it handles at least as good as a fifth wheel. Having semi trucks pass me or when I pass them you donít even know theyíre there. Turning is tighter and improved, and it feels like Iím driving a school bus down the freeway. In fact I had to pick up my trailer from my dads house in fallbrook two days ago because of the lilac fire and all those crazy winds didnít budge me going down the 15frwy at 55 - 60mph. My fj cruiser felt way more stable attached to the trailer than on the drive up in the winds.

Now if itís for other reasons disregard what I just wrote.

I had the same problem. I wanted a trailer that fit in my pole barn. Under twelve feet. I have a Fury 2910 at eleven feet one inch. My son wanted me to get a fifth wheel, but I already had a sixty foot pole barn. Set it up right and it will pull good.

They used to make work and play fifth wheel that was low profile. Good luck finding one.
