Tow Vehciles for 5th Wheels


New Member
Is there any type of lite or ultra lite 5th wheel that can be towed safely with a small pickup such as a Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier safely?

Hey Marg, welcome to the forum. You can probably tow a 21-24 foot 5'er safely with either pickup. I wouldn't try to go any bigger. Check the tow ratings of both pickups and then look around at the RV dealers to find what smaller 5th wheel trailers will fall in the tow weight ratings of the pickups. Remember the weight the RV dealers will emphasize will be the dry weight of the RV. The weight of the 5'er will go up significantly when you load the trailer.

Welcome, Gulf Stream has a 21' Ameri-Lite 5th wheel, that you could probably tow. You need to find out what your truck can tow and go from there.
