GMC Sierra 2008, 5th Wheel Rails and Installation Kit Includes Brackets and Hardware by Pro Series®. 5th wheel hitches are the favorite of professionals who tow, because their road manners are superior to conventional-hitch trailers. If you're traveling with a trailer on a daily basis, you'll appreciate how a 5th wheel handles. Ten-Year warranty.
- Superior performance in cross winds
- Easy hookup
- More tongue weight for better stability
- Concentrates trailer load directly over the rear axle
If you're going to be doing extensive towing with a large trailer, as opposed to taking it somewhere and leaving it for a while, there's no substitute for a 5th wheel. Sure, you can tune a conventional hitch up to tow pretty nicely, but those who tow for a living know that the sweetest-towing rigs, pound-for-pound and foot-for-foot are always 5th wheels. With the connection between the trailer and truck centered over the rear axle, the trailer has far less propensity to steer the truck over poor roads or on windy days, reducing driver fatigue. One of the major factors that influences trailer stability is the proportion of the trailer's weight that sits on the tongue. Conventional-hitch trailers should have 10-15% of their weight on the hitch ball, but 5th wheel hitches should be carrying 20-25% of the load, substantially more.
If you need to use your truck to carry cargo in the bed when you're not towing, consider a 5th wheel setup that is readily removable, permitting unrestricted use of the bed. If you're towing with a short-bed pickup, there's a problem: you can't turn any sharper without the trailer hitting the cab, especially when backing up to spot the trailer into a narrow lane. That's when you need a 5th wheel that sits on rollers on a rail in the bed, sliding back a foot or so to allow sharper angles between the truck and trailer. When you're on the road, just slide the hitch back forward over the axle for the best towing.122.88Brand: Pro Series Part Number: 30095 UPC: 016118073614

Cargo carrier would have been nice if the bike rack could hook into the back of this cargo basket. Be I am an engineer, I will figure it out. Other than that, easy to assemble and install.Was this review helpful for you?

Very solid construction, with plenty of room for cargo. Incredibly easy assembly. It only took 20 minutes with a 2-year-old "helping" me. Lots of places to hook cords/straps, and enough rise to be safely above the road. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful for you?
