Trailer Hitch Recommendation for Use on the Back of a Crossroads 5th Wheel Trailer

Question:

I need to find a reciever for the back of my crossroads zf25bh fifth wheel. Do you have a bolt on reciever hitch that I can tow a ski boat behind my fifth wheel?

Expert Reply:

We have a couple of different options in terms of trailer hitches for 5th wheel trailers. The Curt Hitch, # E-100, that you have referenced is designed to fit on 4 inch square channel bumpers. You will need to check to see if your bumper fits this description and if it is rated for this application.

I recommend going with a frame mount hitch. The most versatile frame mount hitch we offer is Curt Hitch, # 13703. It can be bolted or welded on and fits C-channel, I-beam, and Box frames. Any welding should be done by a qualified professional welder. I have included a link to the installation details for reference.

In some states, it is against the law to tow a trailer behind another trailer. Make sure to check with your local laws and the laws where you will be traveling to determine what the restrictions, if any, are for that state. The state Departments of Transportation are a good start.
