The fifth wheel hitch is the strongest hitch you can get for your truck. More often than not, this type is used to tow big RVs or livestock or farm goods trailers. It’s mounted in the pickup’s bed, and it’s ready for the heavy loads.

Fifth Wheel Hitch

That being said, here are several fifth wheel hitch benefits:

  • Stability- This hitch makes your trailer way more stable compared to its counterparts.
  • Easy to Maneuver- The fifth wheel hitch is mounted inside the truck’s bed, and this makes it easier to turn corners. When pulling heavy loads, you could certainly use all the mobility you can get.
  • Safer- If you are a novice in hauling loads, a fifth wheel hitch proves to be the best as it is easier to use.
  • Capacity- With this type of hitch, you can transport really heavy loads. As a matter of fact, it’s the reason why they look similar to hitches used on 18-wheeler semi-trucks.

How hard the installation is depends on the make and model of the truck as well as the specific hitch. In some situations, you need to remove and modify the truck’s bed in order to complete the installation.
