Towing a Large 5th Wheel RV | Full Time RV Truck and Towing! | Changing Lanes!

When we moved into our RV almost a year ago, it was our first time EVER staying in an RV.  The next morning was my (chad) first time ever towing a 5th wheel.  A VERY large 44 foot 5th Wheel at that!   With a 22 foot truck!  That’s over 60 feet of rig!  The most I had ever towed was a 10 ft motorcycle trailer behind an SUV so, needless to say, it was a bit intimidating.  This thing is also 13.5 feet high, and 8.5 feet wide.  Not too much smaller than some commercial tractor trailers!  It took some getting used to, and we made a few mistakes along the way, but we wanted to share what we’ve learned and demonstrate some of the most common maneuvers as well as how we prepare for each leg of our travels.
