You might take a look at Jayco, Keystone, and Open Range to see if they have something to your liking. The smallest I've ever had was a Cedar Creek and it was right around 36'. Good luck in your search.

Not many 5th wheels are that short.

Aren't the Escapes models this small with a full fiberglass shell? I believe there are some around 20+ feet and weigh in around 3,500 LBS or so.

There are older [earlier] fifth wheels that are smaller in length but the trend of the market now seems to be more floor space. Good luck with your search.

Glendale made a Titanium model in the 25 foot range through early 2010 when the economy caused them to close their doors. It is a premium level unit, being dang heavy for its size and still bring a bunch of bucks used. We had one, a 2006, a couple sizes bigger and it was a very nice unit - almost better in some ways then what we have now.

There are many older (through, say 2005 or so)lower end units that are in the length you are looking at but as a 'warning', they lack a lot in living space and have very few amenities and are usually in the furthest back row of a dealer's lot.
