The Benefits of a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch

Fifth wheel trailer hitches are the strongest hitches made for your pickup truck. Resembling the hook-up of a big rig (also known as an 18 wheeler, semi, or tractor trailer), 5th wheel truck hitches allow you to haul large loads that would be otherwise impossible. These heavy-duty trailer hitches are commonly used for livestock trailers and RV’s.

5th wheel hitches, unlike traditional trailer hitches, are mounted in the bed of your truck. This offers a number of advantages over standard hitches, including:

Easier to Maneuver: Because of the placement of the hitch, it provides a much better turning radius, making it easier for you to maneuver your trailer or RV around corners.

Better Stability: With the trailer fastening inside your truck bed, you are provided far more stability than with traditional ball hitches.

Towing Capacity: Standard ball hitches do not even come close to the towing capabilities of a fifth wheel hitch.

Safety: All of the above advantages work together to provide a much safer experience.

So if you are planning on hauling a large loads with your pickup, having a 5th wheel trailer hitch installed on your truck is the only way to go!
