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. Now, we are going to focus our attention on one hitch in particular – the class 5 hitch.
The Benefits of a Class V Trailer Hitch include:
- A class 5 trailer hitch is the type of hitch is a weight-distributing hitch used for extra heavy-duty towing.
- A class 5 trailer hitch can handle a gross trailer weight (GTW) of over 10,000 lbs.
- A class 5 trailer hitch can handle a maximum tongue weight over 1,200 lbs.
- A class 5 trailer hitch is ideal for towing extra heavy loads, including: car trailers, horse trailers, large boats, and campers.
- A class 5 trailer hitch can be installed on most and full-size pickup trucks.
A class 5 hitch is the heaviest class-designated hitch on the market. Typically installed on full-size trucks, these hitches are best suited for towing large trailers, campers, and boats. For anything heavier, you should consider a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch.
