How to Determine Max Weight of 5th Wheel if Pin Weight is Known


If the max tongue weight is 1975 what is the max trailer weight?


Expert Reply:

If you're speaking of the # CAB-C5GX1216 Convert-A-Ball Cushioned 5th wheel to gooseneck adapter, it has a 20,000 lb towing capacity and a 4000 lb pin weight capacity.

If you're speaking of a 5th wheel trailer where the pin weight is known to be 1975 lbs, since the pin weight is generally 20% of the trailer weight that should put the trailer weight somewhere in the vicinity of 10,000 lbs give or take a few pounds.
