What Size Truck Should Be Used For Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer


I have a 27 ft 91 caltan what is my towing situation I meant what sort of truck should be able to tow it


Expert Reply:

I would recommend a full size, 3/4 ton truck like the Ford F-250, Chevy or GMC 2500, or Dodge Ram 2500 Series. There is not a specific truck size required, but of the models I mentioned would maximize towing capacity and minimize wear and tear on the drive train of the truck.

I would recommend a truck with the 8 foot bed if possible, which would eliminate the need for a sliding hitch or a replacement pin box for the fifth wheel. That is not to say that other trucks are not capable so you will need to check the towing capacities of the truck to determine if it is capable of towing your 27 ft 1991 trailer.

I would also choose a truck with the full tow package that includes the trailer connector and associated wiring. I have included a link to 5th wheel towing information below. If you wish to let me know the weight of the trailer and what truck you decide to go with I will be happy to make some recommendations that will work for you.
