Most farmers go with a ball in the bed, it takes up less space and you can get removable ones that leave nothing in the bed. With a fifth wheel you will have at least some rails left. Price would certainly be much higher for a fifth too. Other that that there shouldn't be much difference. Not likely that you will have any wear problems with either unless you tow several hundred thousand miles. If you want to pull doubles you need a fifth tho, no doubling trailers with a ball.

I wonder if the 2 ball ban is just a MN thing. Do you know of other states that don"t allow it?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Not just a MN thing. Michigan allows doubles behind a fifth wheel camper.

Front trailer MUST me fifth wheel, and it MUST contain living quarters.
I.e. be a camper. (haven't figured out why that is yet)

Plus, you need an "R" recreational endorsement unless you have a CDL with
the proper endorsement. Triples are not permitted.

Here in Missouri, as long as your total length is 65 feet or less, you can tow 2 ball hitch trailers.
