How to Estimate Trailer Pin Weight Based on Total Trailer Weight


Is the listed weight of the King Pin assumed to be with the trailer fully loaded? If not, how do estimate how much extra weight would be put to the King Pin with a loaded trailer?


Expert Reply:

Typically a fifth wheel trailer's pin weight is 20 percent of the total weight of the trailer. The Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th-Wheel-to-Gooseneck Adapter # CAB-C5GX1216 that you referenced has a pin weight capacity of 4,000 lbs.
