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 Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


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


Comments

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

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.

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


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 Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


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

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 Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


product was just as I expected. E- trailer did a great job start to finish. UPS was, as expected, rough on the boxes. This caused a loss of a few pieces of hardware. ( I was able to replace the missing hardware at home depot) This was not a big deal just faster to go grab what I needed instead of contacting E-trailer. I would recommend E- Trailer to anyone and will use them myself as needed. 159546

We'll be in touch about the missing hardware Mark. We want to make sure you have the right pieces of hardware and they are of the correct grades.

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


Received product on time. As stated by other customers, box was pretty damaged with a hole on one corner. Lots of tape was used by someone and parts were loose in the box but got all parts and more. Received lots of hardware, made me wonder if I should use all of them. The instructions were not very helpful. Good thing I was replacing another Husky hitch, so having it side by side was great. Reviews from another customer mentioned the side to side swaying of the head and that it can damage the truck rails. The silver Husky does have more movement than my old hitch which should help hooking and unhooking. I set the height same as my old hitch which is the second hole from the top but am wondering if I should go the max. Also, the lever for the slide is a problem. it is too small and cannot get any leverage on it to disengage the slide. even though I also receive a second handle, it is too long and interferes with the top jaw handle. I have not pulled my 5th wheel yet, but am second guessing my self that maybe I should have stayed with my old hitch. we'll see. Maybe this will help someone. I drive a 2010 F-250 HD with a camper shell most of the time. I use a cherry picker/shop crane to remove the camper and install the hitch and vice versa. it is a one man operation for now since am 73 years old. 499361

Review from a similar Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


We received our hitch on Thursday, exactly when E-trailer 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 Husky Silver Series in Fifth Wheel


This Husky Fifth wheel hitch is very well built and performs well. We have it mounted in our 2016 Nissan Titan on the factory supplied goose neck adaptor. The quality of the paint finish and metal components are excellent. We have towed our 9000 GVW Fifth wheel about 10,000 km without any issues. My only comment is that it is very heavy--one person cannot easily lift it out of the truck even when broken down into the two components. 489155

Great response on shipping! Product was packaged better than most items I've ever received from most vendors. ( this was an issue in previous reviews and in my experience they've certainly remedied this issue) George was a great help and hastily responded to my concerns. (Not sure if that's their generic response name/guy/email but he provided results) I would've given 5 stars but the directions left a lot to be desired. I'm sure anyone who has installed a fifth wheel before would find the directions completely sufficient but it was my first and a couple more descriptive pictures would've been useful. After completion and a few unwanted holes in my bed the directions made perfect sense and the errors were clearly mine... But would it kill ya to provide a little better diagrams. All that said the hitch is sturdy and of good construction, I would repeat this purchase through this vendor in a heartbeat. Thanks etrailer!!! 360086

Heavy duty hitch, well built, no chucking when towing. Like the composition of the slider, no greasing. Slider and head handle work smoothly with no binding. Unit weight is about 240 lbs. have a plan to lift in and out of truck , I have a small Davit crane in the bed. My truck has a 8 foot box, I may need the slider due to having a 1 foot tool box then a 7000 watt Honda generator that fits up th the hitch, height of generator may interfere with front cap when turning . When shipped it was missing some parts, called e-tailor and thay shipped the missing parts, great sevice 257328

This Husky hitch was an excellent choice for me, I've owned a previous Husky hitch and the quality of this product is excellent. What I really like is that this hitch articulates from side to side easing the stresses on the fifth wheel and make for a smoother ride over my fixed hitch. another bonus that I like is that it is powder coated for a much heavier duty finish over a regular paint job. I highly recommend this hitch plus the price is very reasonable. (Beware of articulation crushed both sides of rear quarter panels.) 248690

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.

  • Most 5th wheel trailer hitches and trailer pin boxes are height adjustable, which can help with taller trucks like yours to tow a 5th wheel trailer.

Whether or not your truck is too tall will depend on the trailer you are looking to tow, as they will all have at least slightly different height dimensions.

  • Can the Pin Box on a 5th Wheel Trailer be Lowered to Raise the Front of the Trailer
  • Yes. As long as the pin box on the trailer is not already at its lowest setting then you can move it down to raise the front of the trailer up. If for some reason you cannot go any lower with the pin box then you may want to look at a taller 5th wheel hitch. Husky hitch # HT31318-31325 can be adjusted to 19-1/4 inches tall. But if using a slider the Curt Q Series hitches are the tallest available already at 21-1/2 inches tall.

  • 2015 Ram 3500 High Capacity Fifth Wheel Hitch Setup Recommendation
  • I have a high capacity fifth wheel hitch I can recommend for your 2015 Ram 3500 8 foot bed without hitch prep package, but the part # RP30054 is a low profile fifth wheel hitch designed for flat bed trucks so it would sit too low for your truck bed. For a 26k fifth wheel hitch setup you would want the Husky Fifth Wheel Hitch part # HT31318-31325 and then for rails you would want the part # HT32221-686. All of the gooseneck adapters we offer for fifth wheel rails like the part # 49080...

  • Height Settings of the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch 3200
  • I do have options for you but if you were using the lower most hole on the hitch ball for the Andersen Ultimate Connection 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # AM3200 then that is going to be your max height for this hitch as they do not make a taller ball for it nor do they have any other means of raising the connection point. The max amount of height you can obtain from this hitch is 18" above the bed floor. The next best option for you would be to check if the pin box or coupler on your...

  • How to Prevent Pin Box from Hitting Bed Rails on 2001 Chevrolet Silverado
  • We cannot recommend you modify the kingpin box in any way. Since you have already adjusted the height of your fifth wheel hitch to its highest setting, you might consider going with a fifth wheel hitch with a greater height adjustability such as the Husky Silver Series 26K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # HT31318-31325. The Husky Silver Series hitch can be raised to 19-1/4 inches tall. See the video review I have included.

  • Can the Reese Low-Profile 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch be Mounted to Above the Bed Rails
  • On trailer hitches that fit above the bed rails the bases or legs will have little tabs to fit in the mounting slots on the tops of the rails. The Reese Low-Profile hitch # RP30054 does not have those tabs so there isn't a way to safely mount it to rails. The highest capacity hitch that will fit in above the bed rails is Husky hitch # HT31318-31325 which is rated for 26,000 pounds. I have linked a video review of this hitch for you. If you can tell me the year of your Ram 3500 I can...

  • Should a Slider Husky 5th Wheel Hitch be Used in a Short Bed Truck Instead of the Fixed Version
  • Since your Husky hitch is a fixed hitch then a slider should be all you need for the short bed truck. Or you could just get the slider base, # HT32042, and put the Husky head and center section (that the head sits on) you have on it. The slider base offers 10 inches of travel.

  • Compatibility of Husky Silver Series Fifth Wheel Hitch # HT31318-31325 with Reese Bed Rails
  • The Husky Silver Series # HT31318-31325 hitch is indeed fully compatible with the Reese bed rails used with your existing # RP30035 Reese Universal Install Kit. Your existing bed rails will NOT need to be removed and repositioned. We actually have one of the Husky Silver Series Hitches assembled, and if you look at the photo I have edited for you, you can see the dimensions of the mounting tabs that insert in the bed rails. You can measure the mounting holes in your bed rails to confirm,...

  • How to Prevent the Pin Box from Hitting the Bed Rails on a 2012 Chevrolet 3500 Dually
  • Your best option is to adjust the height of the fifth wheel hitch if possible. The Curt Q24 fifth wheel hitch is height adjustable from 13 inches to 17 inches. If you can raise the height of the fifth wheel hitch, try that first. There are other fifth wheel hitches on the market with a greater height adjustability such as the Husky Silver Series 26K Fifth Wheel Hitch, # HT31318-31325. It can be raised to 19-1/4 inches tall. If raising the hitch or replacing the hitch is not an option,...

  • How to Tow a Fifth Wheel Trailer with a Short Bed Truck and a Stationary Hitch
  • To make sharp turns with a short bed truck towing a fifth wheel trailer you will need to have a slider hitch unless you have a Sidewinder installed on the trailer to replace it's OE pin box. If you install a Sidewinder on your trailer you would be able to use a non-sliding hitch like the Husky hitch you have. Sidewinders are pin box specific so you will first need to know what pin box you have know in order to pick out the correct one. There should be a sticker or a stamping on...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch Recommendation for a 2008 Chevy Silverado 3500 with 26k Capacity
  • Since you are looking for a fifth wheel hitch with at least a 26k capacity your best option would be the Husky Silver Series Fifth Wheel Hitch part # HT31318-31325. 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.

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch for FW Flagstaff # 85258IKWS Compatible with Reese Revolution Pin Bux
  • The Reese Revolution is the OEM version of their aftermarket Sidewinder. Lets begin with the Curt Q20 fifth wheel hitch, part # C16130. Curt makes a great hitch, and I really like the spherical axial bearing they use to allow full 360 degree tilting movement. The double jaw used in the hitch grabs the fifth wheel king pin from all sides, reducing rattle and chucking. The built-in cushioning further reduces how the rattling, clatter and chucking is transferred to the vehicle. However,...

  • Recommended 5th Wheel Base Rails Compatible with 26K 5th Wheel Hitch

There is not a custom fit bracket kit for your truck so you will use this universal base rail kit with the Husky Silver Series 26K W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - 26,000 lbs # HT31318-31325 or sliding hitch # HT31318-32042 for short bed applications.

  • High Capacity Fifth Wheel/Gooseneck Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500
  • We have some high capacity hitch setup for you to consider, but none are more than 30k. Which for most trucks is more than adequate. That being said we are aware of the absurdly high towing capacity your 2016 Ram 3500 would have if it was a dually and a diesel and a long bed. I just checked the Ram page it lists a whopping 31,200 lb capacity for this vehicle configuration. The highest rated fifth wheel hitch we have to fit your 2016 Ram 3500 without the factory rail kit would be the...

  • 5th Wheel Hitch for 1999 Dodge Ram 8-Foot Bed for Maximum Height
  • A toolbox in a pickup is a feature that can pose a challenge for 5th wheel towing due to the limited clearance you refer to.

  • We have the Husky Silver Series 26K W 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Single Jaw - 26,000 lbs # HT31318-31325 but not the OEM Hitch. You will need to use the Replacement Crossmember for Husky OEM 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # HT32998 and the Husky Towing OEM 5th-Wheel Hitch Legs for Ford Towing Prep Package - 26,000-lbs # HT32997 you have pictured.
