A 5th wheel hitch is an important equipment used in heavy vehicles. It is installed over or in front of the vehicle’s rear axle and a kingpin is used to connect the notch on the fifth wheel hitch to the trailer. This hitch is used for hauling trailers carrying livestock or other equipment. However, every hitch has its own weight limit, which you should adhere to. Most of the vehicles use hitches that are quite long. There are also specifications for the distance between the mounting point on the hitch to the truck cab.

A common question- is the reason behind using these hitches. The 5th wheel hitch is useful in enhancing the manoeuvrability of the vehicle especially on narrow roads. The installation of these hitches helps you in enhancing the stability of the truck. Lastly, the capacity could also be increased with the help of these depending on what you use.

There are other advantages offered by a hitch. For example, when you use a truck, you can use the hitch for side to side pivoting. Similarly you can also use front to back mounting depending on the actual requirement. Some hitches give you flexibility as far as vertical angle adjustment is concerned. The hitch also helps in easy release which becomes an important functionality even when the truck is on unlevelled sites. The hitch is beautifully designed to provide a lot more stability and enhance the performance without start-stop issues that are commonly seen with trailers. Most importantly, high quality hitches are designed to make sure that there isn’t any annoying rattling sound that can often be heard with towing trucks and trailers.
