5TH WHEEL PACKAGES
Whether you are towing your RV to the family campground or hauling machinery cross-country on your flatbed, 5th wheel trailers are built with a bigger lifestyle in mind.
A 5th wheel trailer hitch is designed to mount into a pickup truck bed and receive a kingpin from a 5th wheel trailer. Much like the design of a semi truck, a 5th wheel hitch features a large, generally flat coupler head that latches onto the kingpin using a set of locking jaws. Being mounted in the back of a pickup, between the axles, this type of hitch can handle much more weight than a standard trailer hitch, up to 24,000 lbs. 5th wheel hitches also provide a wider turn radius and overall smoother ride. Though a 5th wheel takes up more room in the truck bed when installed, it mounts to the vehicle using a set of brackets and rails that allow the main 5th wheel assembly to be removed whenever necessary, without much effort.
