5th wheel hitch?

So if we're looking to get a 5.0TA, would this work for a hitching system?

I know I'd need to add a sidewall 7 pin.

Thanks!

Frank

With that Curt gooseneck hitch you still have to get the installation kit that adapts it to your particular vehicle.

The sidewall 7-pin is not required, but sure is nice to have.

Good catch Jim, but yes, will need that as well.

I don't know what truck I'm going to get. At least a full size half ton with more than a 6' bed.

Thanks!

If you are picking up the unit, Trademasters in Chilliwack is the place to go for hitch work.
