Fifth Wheel Frame

fifth_wheel_header

Here’s a quick shopping tip for fifth wheel buyers. To spot a potentially weak frame, look for a vertical plastic strip on the bedroom sidewalls. This seam typically means the bedroom walls aren’t built on a thick perimeter frame; this support seam is added to compensate for expansion joints. At Jayco, you’ll never find this seam on our fifth wheel walls because we build on a hardy 2” x 6” perimeter frame.

Here are some more Jayco fifth wheel frame differences:

  • Our walls are built on the frame’s full-width outriggers. These outriggers are spaced 4-6 feet apart (vs. 8 feet) for more support.
  • Our fifth wheel frames are made of I-Class structural-steel I-beams. These cambered frames feature a one-piece design that doesn’t twist during travel.

In addition to this frame, we build on three other impressive foundations. Click here to visit our Strong Foundation landing page to learn more.
