The fifth wheel hitch is a sturdy one and requires professional help for installing it. However, if you are confident about yourself, then you can get it installed all by yourself by following some important steps. There are incidents that a small work has been turned into a nightmare and installing the fifth wheel hitches is no exception.

Getting a frame purpose kit

The first important thing to be undertaken is to have a frame purpose kit for towing the vehicle. It is very important and critical to transfer the huge weight of the vehicle in the ground. With the frame kit, you are sure to get this easily done.

Understanding the user manual

It is very important on your part to understand the different parts and structure of the fifth wheel hitch. You do need to know about the load capacity that could be towed. If you are not clear about it, then it is better on your part to confirm the same with your manufacturer. This would help you to save on huge amount of dollars in the form of repair costs.

Place the weight between cabin and rear axle

It is better to keep the vehicle equally weighted on the tyres when towing the heavy load. You can find the exact diagram of the same in the user manual. The fifth wheel hitch that is badly balanced would place pressure that is uneven on the tyres that might also cause it wearing prematurely.

Vehicle frame to be fixed securely

The fifth wheel hitch comes with rail kit, which is designed for attaching to the chassis or the frame of the vehicle. The fifth wheel hitch weight is evenly transferred by the rail kit and quite safely.

You need to remove the plastic liners that are found between the fixing points of the vehicle and the rail kit. This would certainly help the weight of the vehicle to be evenly distributed.
