5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 101

For light-duty tows, a ball hitch typically found on an SUV or pickup truck model should do the trick. But for heavier loads, like towing an RV or livestock trailer, a 5th wheel hitch is a must. Here's a brief overview of what a 5th wheel trailer hitch is and why it's beneficial to use.

What is a 5th wheel hitch?

Unlike a gooseneck hitch, a 5th wheel hitch doesn't have a ball mount. Instead, it has a downward-facing pin (a.k.a. a king pin) and a plate that lies on top of the 5th wheel hitch plate.

What are its benefits?

Here are just some of the benefits that a 5th wheel hitch offers.

  • Greater Towing Capacity: The average 5th wheel hitches have a maximum towing capacity of 24,000-25,000 pounds, though some can tow as much as 30,000 pounds.
  • Simpler To Maneuver: A 5th wheel hitch yields a better turning radius, which makes it easier to turn around corners with a trailer in tow.
  • Increased Stability: Because a 5th wheel hitch attaches to the truck via the truck bed's interior, it results in a smoother, more balanced ride than a gooseneck hitch.
