Each trailer hitch is given a class rating, ranging from class I to class V. These ratings outline the towing capacity and receiver opening size of each hitch. For an indepth look at the differences between each type of hitch, check out our previous blog, “Knowing the Difference Between Trailer Hitch Classes.” This week, however, we are going to focus on the benefits of one trailer hitch in particular, the 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch.
5th wheel hitches, unlike traditional trailer hitches, are mounted in the bed of your truck, offering a number of advantages over standard hitches, including:
- Better Maneuverability: Because a 5th wheel trailer hitch is placed in your truck bed, it provides a much better turning radius and better maneuverability than other, more traditional trailer hitches.
- Improved Stability: Similar to maneuverability, the location of the 5th wheel trailer hitch in the truck bed provides improved stability.
- Towing Capacity: Traditional ball hitches do not even come close to the towing capabilities of a fifth wheel hitch.
- Safety: The cumulative effect of all of the above benefits is improved safety.
