Fifth wheel trailers have several key benefits over bumper-hitched trailers. For starters, they’re easier to hitch by yourself. They also tend to be more stable while towing.
If you’re not careful though, you can still run into trouble towing a fifth wheel trailer.
This group of RVers was towing their fifth wheel near Grover Beach, California when disaster struck. As the driver turned around a sharp bend, the forward part of the fifth wheel trailer ended up smacking into the rear of the truck’s cab with a scary result.
The person who uploaded the video said that,
This was a sliding hitch, but it was to close to the cab of the truck. We ended up doing a tighter turn than we [intended]. It put a nice dent in the back, upper corner of the truck cab. The bike was in the bed of the truck, stationary.
Fortunately, everyone was OK and the only physical damage was a broken rear window.
