TrailerSaver TSLB2H Air-Ride Hitch

The TSLB2H Air-Ride hitch is for medium to heavy-duty truck owners. Based on the same design as the TS3, it comes with a standard bolt-down mounting plate and a weight rating of 32,000 pounds

The Holland-Binkley style hitch head pivots about a point level with the head itself. This transfers not only the up-down motion of the trailer but the fore-aft motion as well. And because of the level-head pivot, all forward motion of the trailer is transferred down, increasing your traction on the road when you need it most.

Let’s dive into some 5th wheel hitch information:

  1. What Is a 5th Wheel Hitch?
    • A 5th wheel tow hitch is a heavy-duty towing receiver used to connect a 5th wheel RV (recreational vehicle) to a pickup truck.
    • Unlike traditional trailers that attach behind the rear bumper, 5th wheels attach inside the truck bed.
    • The mechanism is similar to how semi-trucks connect to the trailers they tow, but on a smaller scale1.
  1. Types of 5th Wheel Hitches:
    • Standard 5th Wheel Hitch:
      • These hitches are mounted in the truck bed and use a complicated coupling mechanism.
      • They provide a more stable ride compared to gooseneck hitches.
    • Slider 5th Wheel Hitch:
      • Designed for towing with short-bed trucks.
      • The slider locks in place between the cab and the rear axle during highway towing.
      • When maneuvering in narrow spaces, the slider can be released, moving the hitch closer to the tailgate for greater turning clearance.
    • Custom Fit 5th Wheel Hitch:
      • Custom rail kits mount to existing holes in the frame, reducing installation time.
      • They work with both long-bed and short-bed trucks2.
  1. Installation Tips:
    • Height Adjustment:
      • Set the 5th-wheel hitch’s height by measuring from the ground to the king pin and from the ground to your truck bed.
      • There should be 5-6 inches of clearance between the back of your truck and the 5th wheel.
    • Bed Liners:
      • When installing without a bed liner, consider using universal rail kits that can mount to any full-size pickup.
      • Custom installation kits are available for late-model Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, and GMC trucks, avoiding the need for drilling.
    • Long-Bed vs. Short-Bed Trucks:
      • Long-bed trucks are recommended due to the hitch’s position in front of the rear axle.
      • For short-bed trucks, use a slider 5th wheel hitch and an extended pin box to compensate for reduced turning clearance.
      • The slider allows normal turns during low-speed maneuvering, while the extended pin box creates more space between the truck cab and the trailer2.

Remember, choosing the right 5th wheel hitch ensures safe and efficient towing for your RV adventures!
