Rear Receiver Hitch For My 5th Wheel Toyhauler To Double Tow

Question:

Im looking for a hitch receiver for my 2019 Vortex By Genesis Supreme 3619V 5th Wheel toyhauler. I would like to find something that can handle the heaviest weight possible. I plan on double towing a small SxS trailer and/or a small boat less than 5000lbs.

We highly recommend against double towing and many states either don't allow double (some states call it triple) towing or have numerous restrictions. Some states limit the total length of all 3 units, some only allow certain types of trailers behind the 5th wheel trailer, some require a special endorsement on your license to be allowed to double/triple tow. I highly recommend checking the laws for any state you plan on double/triple towing in.

To double/triple tow you'll need to ensure that your truck can tow the weight of both trailers. The safe maximum weight to tow is really 80-85% of your listed max towing weight. Your 5th wheel hitch and pin box need to be rated to handle the extra weight of the added trailer and then you'll need a hitch for your 5th wheel that's rated for the trailer you want to use.

I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 18" to 51" Wide Item # C13702 if the distance between your frame is 18" to 51".

If your trailer's frame is 22" to 66" wide I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 66" Wide Item # C13704
