Fifth wheel towing isn’t built the same way as ball hitch towing. It requires an entirely different set of tools—not to mention a different skill set. There are dozens of different hitches that can be added to a pickup truck that will allow them to tow a fifth wheel. They come in different shapes, sizes, and weight ratings. Along the same lines, different truck brands may require different types of hitches. These hitches often called wheel hitches or gooseneck hitches, let you just slide the trailer’s connector into the hitch. Because of where it’s placed on top of the rear wheels, it provides a little additional torque for towing heavier things. Find the right hitch for your vehicle, and for the weight of the rig you intend to tow behind you. And don’t miss the vented gate that replaces a truck’s tailgate. Not only does it make the tow vehicle a little more aerodynamic, but the notched top rail also saves you the hassle of lowering the tailgate every time you hitch—something that has led to hundreds of dented up tailgates. With the right hitch on the right truck, a tow vehicle can make easy work of even the heaviest of fifth-wheel tow behinds.
