Sorta; We owned a 30' 5er for 13 years. We traded for a 40' 5er, then traded our 3/4T Dodge CTD for a Duramax dually for safe towing. There is considerable difference between towing, and backing 30' an 40' 5er. After 8 years I'm used to handling our 40' 5er now. I cannot explain the differences much more than to say YOU NEED MORE ROOM to maneuver and turn sharp corners. My 5er wheels cut a full 8' inside the truck duals at about a 60-70 deg. turn. Merging into interstate traffic or changing lanes requires forethought and planning somewhat like a semi-truck, or 40' MH and towed. Lastly, a 40' 5er demands quality towing mirrors for the aforementioned driving.
Is it worth the trouble and money, you darn right! I do wish we'd had a 30' 5er for our AK trip; most of the CG's are not setup for 40' RV's, you can get in/out of most sites, but I now have tree scrapes on my 40'5er.
