5th Wheel RV


Recommended Posts

Topic Originally Created in December of 2006:


We got called out this afternoon to get a 5th, when we arrived we noticed that our 5th wheel attachment would not fit because the shaft was a little to short to let the pin go through the hole. We ended up using our other plate with the clevis rings.




we put in some shims








Everything went good, and there was no damage and everything stayed in the exact same spot. I was just wondering if anyone would have done anything different, when we picked it up we asked the man behind the desk and he said some manufacturers will make the shaft a little longer or shorter. We have used our 5th wheel plate of campers before and it worked perfect this is just the first one that it didn't work on.

I have used the miller 5th wheel plate without the lock pin in and chained the trailer so it could not slide back and let my underreach become the pivot point. Works great, the one I had the pin was bent a little so the lock pin wouldn't fit in the grove.
