With a properly adjusted hitch, a TT will tow pretty well in the wind, but it will never tow better than a 5th wheel in the wind. With the pivot point of the 5th wheel being just in front of the rear axle, the trailer does not try to turn the TV into the wind the way a TT does. Also, the lighter the trailer, the more the wind will affect how it tracks behind the TV.
Over all, I'm not saying one is a better RV than the other. I've had both, and enjoyed them all. I'm just saying I prefer how a 5th wheel pulls compared to a TT.
