For really heavy towing we carry 5th wheel and gooseneck hitches that mount in the bed of your pickup truck. Whether you bought it from us or from someone else, whether you have a Reese, Drawtite, B&W, Valley, or Husky, we can install it for you.
Fifth Wheel hitches vary by vechicle and the frame of the vehicle. Installation also varies. Some newer vehicles that have tubular frames which require a special kind of bracket system that allows a fifth wheel to be installed on the bed of your truck. If you are looking for a sleek designed hitch we recommend the B&W Hitch, which is primarily for gooseneck trailers, along with the B&W Companion (p/n 3000) that allows you to pull a fifth wheel.
NOTE: Always choose a hitch that is strong enough to handle the maximum anticipated total weight of the trailer but does not exceed the towing capacity of your vehicle. Refer to your vehicle's owner’s manual for maximum towing and tongue weight limitations. The trailer tongue load should be kept at 10 percent of the loaded trailer weight for weight-carrying (deadweight) trailer hitches, and 12 percent for weight-distributing(equalizing) trailer hitches. Also, you may want need to consider vehicle modifications that might be beneficial, such as stiffer springs, air springs, overload or air assist shocks, larger sway bars or automatic transmission fluid (ATF) cooler. Such modifications may be needed on vehicles used for heavy towing or long-distance towing. You may also want to refer to the U.S. Department of Transportation web site for additional towing tips and information.
