    Up until about 30 years ago the most common configuration was horse floats but once it became viable to 'convert' the Yank or Canadian models to ADR compliance (240 Volt/LH door/LPG/etc) the Aussie demand exploded and several Aussie Companies now make some very nice units.

    Demand in Aus is so high now that the Yanks et al make ADR compliant models ex factory and Aussie models are made by Jayco Fifth Wheeler, Southern Cross Fifth Wheel Caravans, Winjana Fifth Wheelers, Travelhome, Venture Fifth Wheelers and Dryden Trailerhomes.

    Back to the good old ACT...
    The ACT had a different wording to the other states in their Licensing Act so it was indeed illegal to drive them into the ACT unless the Driver had the appropriate HC License.
    The rigs themselves were always quite OK
    Obviously this was affecting Tourism etc so this anomaly was rectified a few years ago now http://www.legislation.act.gov.au/es...f/db_50929.pdf

    Bottom line is you can now go anywhere in Aus with a fifth wheeler on a C or LR license (as determined by the tow vehicle)
    Yeah, good to know about these license categories in VIC.
    I'm considering upgrading my license to include the next weight range or semi-trailers(but I don't think it's allowed as a single step).

    I've seen it,and I've seen guys modifying caravans to be able to tow as a "fifth wheeler"(assuming that's the term)
    using a ute. I would say they are ok to drive anywhere in Australia, as you said above.
    But, ACT classifying them as "semi-trailers" means anybody driving a one would need an upgraded drivers license to cover
    that category?!

    That`s it dom14. LR licence would be required I`d assume.

    The one in the picture looks too massive for the ute, doesn't it?
    But, I bet it's built pretty light weight, and probably only fraction of weight of the vehicle.
    I wonder whether occupiers are allowed in fifth wheelers like the above while it's moving.

    Umless the occupant is a horse and fifth wheeler is a horse float I would say no. Just like any other trailer.

    What he said X2 ^^^

    Livestock only in any trailer, no Humans permitted.
    About the closest you get is a 'bendy bus' but they are a separate category again
    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    That is flat out discrimination against humans.
    Well........I'll see how the cop's gonna find out whether there is a human inside this fifth wheeler or not.

    Yeah, it's not a bad idea to have medium/heavy vehicle license as a backup if another GFC hits us.
    I'm pretty keen to materialize the idea as soon as the funds allow it.
