Each Husky Silver Series fifth-wheel trailer hitch has been thoroughly tested to meet SAE J2638 standards. These criteria - set forth by the Society of Automotive Engineers - are specifically designed to ensure the highest level of performance for fifth-wheel towing.


Single-Piece, Wraparound Jaw

Wraparound Jaw on Husky 26K W Fifth Wheel Hitch

The wraparound, single-piece jaw on this heavy-duty fifth-wheel trailer hitch offers excellent security and stability by surrounding your trailer's king pin. The increased jaw-to-king-pin contact not only creates a stronger connection than you would find with a slide-bar jaw, but it also helps to reduce the rattle and jarring movement that is often experienced when towing a fifth-wheel trailer.


Maximum Adjustability

Adjustability of the Husky 26K W Fifth Wheel Hitch

The Silver Series 26K W fifth-wheel trailer hitch offers maximum adjustability both up and down and front to back. Adjust the hitch height by simply moving the crossbeam up or down and bolting it into position. To ensure perfect placement of the hitch over your truck's rear axle, you can move the head and crossbeam along the uprights, front to rear. Proper placement of the hitch head will give you more cab clearance and a more stable ride.


King Pin Safety Features

The jaw of the Husky Silver Series 26K W fifth-wheel trailer hitch will only close when your trailer's king pin is positioned correctly inside the hitch. A trigger plate sits just beneath the jaw. When this plate is pressed by the king pin, the jaw will fully close. Because the king pin must press the trigger plate on the underside of the jaw for the jaw to close, high pinning cannot occur.


King pin safety indicator on Husky Silver Series fifth-wheel trailer hitch

A color-coded king pin indicator is built into the handle so that you can easily determine if the jaw is open or closed. Anytime that you can see the red tab at the rear of the hitch, the jaw is open. When no red can be seen, you can rest assured that you are properly hitched. Further secure your trailer to your hitch by inserting a padlock (sold separately) through the lockable tab on the handle.

We purchased this 26k Husky hitch for two reasons. First, we just went from a short bed truck to a 8ft bed and no longer needed our auto slider. Second, we are going to trade our 40ft fifth wheel toy hauler for a 43ft toy hauler and the 18k auto slider was not rated high enough. The Husky hitch was delivered on time and the packaging was excellent. No damage or lost parts from shipping. This Husky hitch is very heavy duty, extremely well designed and nice looking. The quality of workmanship is excellent. We are very happy with our choice. Dealing with etrailer.com was a pleasant experience. They were extremely easy to work with keeping us updated on the shipping process and the delivery date. We received it 4 days after we ordered it. I feel confident if any problems should develop, Husky and or etrailer.com will take care of it pronto. Happy campers! 613760

Very frustrated so far. After FINALLY receiving the hitch and installing on my truck the jaw mechanism does NOT work properly, in other words I pulled on the lever to open the jaw, then to test the striker mechanism took a hammer handle & tapped on the striker (like in the instructional video) release at the rear of the jaw to make sure that the jaw would close automatically as it should when the king pin hits it.....nothing.....won't close as it should. Back on the phone with customer service. My previous 16k Husky was a good hitch but this one thus far .......? 188389

Review from a similar Silver Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I chose the Husky because of the listed height of the hitch. Unfortunately it sits about 1.5" higher than advertised. I was however able to use it and it performed very well. As long as I have someone helping me to get it in and out of my truck (because its very heavy) I would have to say I'm not too disappointed. Also, the custom rail kit was a perfect fit. I'm very happy I went with that particular kit. 738394

Review from a similar Silver Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


We received our hitch on Thursday, exactly when etrailer said it would come, completed installing it in three hours. The rails had been installed from a previous hitch. The instructions where pretty good until the last step, they stopped before installing the receiver plate, but by that time I was able to figure out what needed to be done. We have traveled over 1500 miles in the first week and so far have not had any problems. One thing that I have noticed, turning is much smoother with the pivoting plate then from our previous hitch which it did not have. Also, the trailer jumped a curve while making a tight turn and was not felt in the cab of the truck. 667167

Review from a similar Silver Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Quiet and capable hitch. Two issues. 1- Husky issued a recall to have Loctite applied to three bolts in the head, free repair if a dealer is near you. 30 minute DIY if you have loctite red and a torque wrench on hand and no accomodating dealer. 2- I have had to tighten the castle nut on the center pin a few times over 800 miles, head will develop a clunk in the yoke moving fore and aft. Husky indicated this is not a concern and there is no upper torque limit on the nut, so just adjust tighter as needed to compress the yoke to the head and eliminate this movement. All said, far more comfortable drive than the Husky 16 KS it replaced. 576427

Review from a similar Silver Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


I ordered a Husky silver series 5th wheel hitch with rails, and custom brackets, only to find out that the hitch was missing, a leg, crossmember, handle, and all hardware. Furthermore I paid extra money to have items shipped quickly, so I could pick up my new purchase. I am told, that even due to the fact there was a mistake made on your end, your company cannot overnight ship the rest of my items due to cost. I feel that is a poor excuse for a large company as yourself. I had already made phone contact to ensure all items were available prior to my order. I have been in contact with Carla, who has been nothing but nice and very helpful. I would appreciate it if you could please overnight my items that I should have receive monday the 4th, so I do not loose the trailer that me and my family are so happy to purchase due to not having my items in time. Thank you for your time. Kevin N 190815

Review from a similar Silver Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Easy installation, easy to understand instructions and a simple locking system make this a good choice. I had the Husky 16kw, but replaced it with the 16ks. the Ks fit in my rails so the installation into my pick-up was a snap. I bought the Ks on sale for less that $300, a good deal in my opinion. I will see how it tows this weekend. 523774


Comments
Not as well as I had hoped. After the third tow, I could not dis-engage the slider bar and had to slowly force it open with a 3 pound sledge. Afterwards, I took the head piece off and looked at the mechanism the slide bar was a part of. Seeing no obvious damage, I lubricated all the parts and reinstalled the head gear. It worked great the first time, but I experienced the same problem after the second tow. I just went ahead and bought a new hitch, a 26k Husky etrailer because I bought a heaver 5th wheel. No problems so far with the new hitch. I bought the fully articulating hitch this go around, as I had never had a problem with the first hitch I bought from Husky etrailer which was the same, but only a 16K.

Review from a similar Silver Series in Fifth Wheel Hitch


Thanks George for the note.My last hitch was the Husky slider,I had a ford short bed.I had it for 9 years and it worked great.I went to this husky hitch because I up graded my Ford to a 1 ton long box.The hitch works good,but I have one question maybe you can answer My last hitch did not have very much side to side movement The new one has a lot of movement.I know this is to let you back the truck in when you are on a bit of a grade.The problem is when you are not hauling the trailer and you go over a bump or around a corner the hitch will flop to the opposite side making a bang when it hits the base.I had to put pieces of leather to cut down the noise when it hits.It there anything I can tighten so it dose not flop from side to side so easily. Thanks Jim Bell 551750

Works fine, how often should I grease the pin that hold s the head to the main housing.It has a bolt with a grease nipple going through to back of housing with a large nut and locking pin to stop nut from coming off Thanks
Jim - 08/12/2019

According to the instructions, that I have attached for your reference, the grease zerk fitting that you are describing is to be checked periodically. The other moving parts are recommended to be checked every to 3 to 6 months. It would depend on how often you are using you hitch and it is left at your best judgement how often periodically applied to your situation. I would recommend at a minimum every 3-6 months if not more frequently. We do have a help article that provides a maintenance schedule for other trailer components that you might find useful.

  • Availability of 5th Wheel Hitch to Tow 25,900 lb Car Hauler with a 2014 Ram 3500
    If your loaded trailer weight is 25,900 lbs then you will want to use a gooseneck hitch rather than a 5th wheel hitch. The highest rated 5th wheel hitch that we have to offer is the Husky # HT31318-31325 rated for 26,000 lbs. You won't find too many 5th wheel hitches anywhere else that will be rated much higher than this. The 100 lb difference in the weight of the trailer and capacity of the 5th wheel hitch is too close to consider a safe margin. Gooseneck hitches are rated for at least...

The Husky 5th wheel hitch would pin or bolt in place using the existing slots in the picture frame adapter, depending on the trailer weight.

  • Fifth Wheel Hitch Height for 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 With 21-3/8 Inch Sides on Bed
    In order to determine the correct hitch and height settings, you will need to take a couple quick measurements. Start by parking both your 2017 Chevy Silverado 3500 and new fifth wheel on level ground. You will then measure from the plate of the pin box to the ground. After that measure from the bed floor of your Silverado to the ground. The difference between these two measurements is the height of the hitch you'll need, keeping in mind you are going to need to keep your trailer level...

I do have an option for you but I don't think there is a way to get you to the recommended 6" of clearance between the top of the bed side and bottom of the pin box.

This hitch has a 26k capacity and would work well for you. Check out the review video I attached for this hitch as well. For hitch rails you would want a custom install kit like the part # HT31397-686 as this would install in about half the time as a universal kit and would minimize drilling.

    Valley is no longer in business, but the generally accepted capacity for all industry standard fifth wheel rails like your DH9128 set that you have is that they basically have the same capacity of any hitch that's installed in them. So as long as the fifth wheel hitch you use has the capacity needed for the trailer you'd be set.

    The Husky Silver Series 26K # HT31318-31325 is compatible with industry standard base rails like what come with the Kit # HT31407-686 for your 2004 Ford F-250/F-350. Since the Husky EZ Roller uses base rails with the same attachment points you will have no issues using the 26K with your current setup. I have attached a photo of the measurements for standard base rails that you can use as a confirmation.

  • Compatibility of Reese Sidewinder with Husky Silver Series 26K Fifth Wheel Hitch # HT31318
    According to my Reese representative, a Sidewinder would be compatible with the Husky # HT31318-31325, but the universal wedge included with the Sidewinder would need to be replaced with the Husky-specific part, which is # SWW-04. The wedge is bolted to the underside of the Sidewinder arm, and is designed to sit in the funnel of the 5th wheel hitch and prevent the king pin from swiveling at the hitch. This is what allows the pin box to swivel at its connection to the 5th wheel, 22 inches...

  • Can You Upgrade Fifth Wheel From Husky 16K to 26K With Only the Replacement Head Unit?
    In order to upgrade from a Husky 16K fifth wheel such as # HT31326-31314 to a 26K version you would need to replace both the head unit and legs. The Husky 26K fixed fifth wheel is # HT31318-31325 while the sliding version is # HT31318-32042. Each of these hitches will mount on industry-standard above-bed base rails, which is also what the 16K version fits in. I've added a link to video reviews of both 26K hitches for you to take a look at.

  • Compatability of a Reese Revolution Pin Box with Husky Silver Series 5th Wheel Hitch HT31318-31325
    The Reese Revolution pin box would be compatible with the # HT31318-31325 Husky hitch once you add a custom wedge, part # SWW-04. The same applies for the 16k Husky fifth-wheel hitch # HT31326-31314. I am including links to demonstration videos for both Husky hitches if needed.

  • Recommended Base Rail Kit for a 2017 Ford F-350 Using the Husky 26K 5th Wheel Hitch
    The Husky Silver Series 26K W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch # HT31318-31325 that you referenced will fit industry standard base rails. Even though Husky doesn't have any base rails that will fit your 2017 Ford F-350 as of yet, there are other options that are compatible with this 5th wheel hitch. I recommend going with the Reese Quick-Install Custom Base Rails and Outboard Installation Kit # RP56017-53. The outboard installation for this base rail kit makes it much easier and a little quicker...

  • How Heavy of a Trailer can a 20K 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch Safely Tow
    The weight you can safely tow behind your vehicle will always be limited by your setup's weakest component. For example, if you have a Husky 5th-Wheel Trailer Hitch that has a 20,000 pound capacity but your truck has a maximum trailer weight of 15,000 pounds, you will need to follow the 15,000 pound capacity of your vehicle, even though the hitch itself is capable of handling more. I have also attached a couple of articles on towing a trailer that you may find helpful.
