Why six wheel conversions for fifth wheelers in Australia?

The main reason to spend the money on a six wheel conversion is to carry and tow more weight. If you do wish to go down this path, you need to make sure that the entire 6 wheel conversion is engineered, inspected & certified for your needs.

The extra length of the tow vehicle much less of a problem, than the extra width and extra height of the imports and small trucks.
You can still park in low undercover parking areas etc, and open the doors in a normal car park.
You also get a larger range of Australian vehicles to convert, vehicles that do not feeling like a monster truck to drive!
The servicing of common Australian vehicles is also much easier.
Having an extra axle also gives you a larger tray to carry more gear behind the cab, but the best thing, is that you get a much better turning circle, 90 degree in most cases. This option can give you the perfect fifth wheel tow vehicle for Australia.
