Recommended Spacing Between Tool Box & 5th Wheel Hitch  


How much clearance, if any, must be maintained between hitch and a toolbox mounted in front of it?


Expert Reply:

There is no absolute rule for spacing between the forward side of a 5th wheel hitch and a tool box mounted between it and the cab, but I would say 6 inches would be an appropriate minimum in most instances. We do have recommended clearance distances between the various points of the trailer and truck that you can see in the linked diagram. You want to ensure the front loft of the trailer can clear the top of the tool box.
