Curt, supplier of a complete line of towing products and a manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, launched its new PowerRide 30K 5th wheel hitch.

PowerRide equips hardworking truck with a professional-grade solution for 5th wheel towing. It is ideal for towing the largest RV trailers, campers and other 5th wheel trailers. It features a 30,000-pound fully tested rating and a number of distinct features, including a cast head with multi-directional tilt, an easy-to-use self-resetting handle, enhanced portability, and no welding or fabricating required for installation.

With its 30K gross trailer weight rating and 7,500-lb. vertical load limit, this CURT 5th wheel offers enhanced towing power and is constructed with a cast steel main body for dependable strength.

The hitch uses two interlocking jaws to fully wrap the kingpin for less chucking, and its cast yoke head tilts in multiple directions -- not just forward and backward -- to promote a smooth ride. The self-resetting handle resets the jaws to the ready-to-couple position after uncoupling, saving an extra step in the hookup process.

For installation and removal, PowerRide is unique with a one-pin head removal system. The central pin can be removed as needed, breaking the hitch down into smaller, easier-to-lift pieces. To ensure long-lasting use, the 5th wheel head is equipped with a durable wear indicator which also contributes to smoother towing and eliminates the need for messy grease or a lube plate.

The hitch is also equipped with strategically-placed grip points for a comfortable, confident hold when lifting. Additionally, the PowerRide is thoroughly tested to SAE J2638 specifications for safety.
