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. When that is the case, a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch (Fifth Wheel) may be your best option!
Resembling the hookup of a big rig, a 5th wheel trailer hitch is the strongest hitch made for pickup trucks, traditionally used for livestock trailers and RV’s. And unlike traditional trailer hitches, 5th wheel trailer hitches are mounted in the bed of your truck. This offers a number of advantages over standard hitches.
Benefits of a 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch
- Maneuverability: 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.
- 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.
