This 5th wheel hitch looks great even in the rain!

Whether you are a newbie and wanting to get into the 5th wheel lifestyle or are a seasoned towing veteran – it’s always good to go back to the basics! As you may or may not know, fifth wheel trailers can get up to 45-feet long and can weigh well over 10,000 pounds. Because of this, it is important to consider the towing capacity of your truck and make sure the two are balanced for maximum safety and ease of towing.

Matching your truck and trailer could be an entire blog on its own so we won’t get into it much here – just know that it’s incredibly important and is the foundation of being able to tow your trailer safely.

Another very important aspect of towing a fifth wheel is, of course, the hitch. There are a range of different kinds of 5th wheel hitches that take into consideration many factors: the weight of the trailer you are going to be towing, whether you have a long or short bed truck, whether your 5th wheel hitch bed rails are above or below the bed and much more. Below are the top two long bed 5th wheel hitches we recommend!


PullRite SuperLite 5th Wheel Hitch

The PullRite SuperLite 5th wheel hitch

Probably the best 5th wheel hitch we’ve seen come out in a few years, the PullRite SuperLite is a wonderful development in hitches for fifth wheels. The PullRite SuperLite 5th wheel hitch makes hooking your trailer up as easy as possible with its funnel and gooseneck coupler. All you have to do is aim the ball over any part of the funnel and it will guide the ball into the coupler. As an added bonus, the SuperLite is only 52 pounds, so you no longer need two or three people to remove your 5th wheel hitch when you’re not towing and want to use the bed of your truck.


PullRite Super 5th Fifth Wheel Hitch

This hitch is made specifically for a long bed truck.

Another great example of 5th wheel trailer hitches available is shown in photos throughout this blog, the PullRite ISR Super 5th wheel hitch, which we install on many trucks that come through the Torklift Central shop. ISR stands for “Industry Standard Rails” meaning that these fifth wheel hitches work with industry standard rails, or rails that are already installed on your truck as long as they’re industry standard width apart. Made for a long bed truck, the PullRite Super 5th hitch is top of the line and one of the strongest hitches available. We also offer many other hitches for 5th wheels including PullRite SuperGlide for short bed hitches, B&W hitches and more -  which could also have blogs of their own.


Why is the PullRite ISR 5th Wheel hitch the best? Here are all the features of this hitch:

  • All ISR series of hitches simply pin to the “other guy’s” existing base rails in your truck – eliminating the need to reinstall and drill additional holes
  • 16,000, 20,000, or 24,000 lb. max gross trailer weight towing capacity
  • 4,000, 5,000 or 6,000 lb. max trailer pin weight capacity
  • Vertical height adjustment from 16" to 19"
  • Made in America
