Trailer hitches are given a “class” rating that defines their towing capacity and receiver opening size, with classes range from class I to class V. We have already explained the differences between each type of trailer hitch class. But sometimes, even a class V trailer hitch won’t do. If it is too large for a Class V hitch, a Gooseneck Hitch might be your best option.
Unlike a standard ball hitch, a gooseneck trailer hitch is mounted inside the truck bed, similar to a 5th wheel trailer hitch. The difference between the two types of hitches is that a gooseneck trailer hitch uses a ball and coupler, while a 5th wheel trailer hitch uses a kingpin and fifth wheel hitch.
Benefits of Gooseneck Trailer Hitches
- Gooseneck hitches are typically used for horse and livestock trailers and other larger items.
- Gooseneck hitches are rated for weights up to 30 thousand pounds.
- Towing heavy loads without the proper equipment can really damage your truck.
- Gooseneck hitches are ideal for any truck owner looking to add more versatility and towing capacity to their pickup.
