Can Fifth Wheel Trailer Hitch have it's Weight Capacity Exceeded


I am purchasing a 2021 Grand Design Momentum 381M with upgraded 8K axles x3. I will be towing it with my 2020 Ram 3500 DRW MegaCab 6.5 bed length. The GVWR of the trailer will be officially 21,000 lbs due to the limitation of the king pin which I will upgrade to a Morryde 23K lb. We plan to load into the trailer RZR, Motorcycle, gear, I expect to be at 21,000 lbs or a little more most of the time. Will the Demco 21K be able to handle the maximums I expect it to tow? thanks.

Since we can't ever recommend exceeding the towing capacity of a fifth wheel hitch we'd have to recommend a hitch with a higher towing capacity like the Curt Q25 part # C16566 with the Ram OEM Rail kit part # C16022 which has a 24k capacity.
