Rear View & Visibility - visibility of coupler in the locked position, peace of mind inside the truck cab.

CURT-Three Point Indicator System
Color coded indicator visible from inside your truck. No other 5th wheel on the market offers these features. This system allows you to see the position of the jaw: Uncouple-Red, Couple-Yellow, Tow-Green. There is two locations visible from the rear of the hitch, the center under the head unit and the pull handle.

Reese- The only visible indicator is a small lever that slides over the handle to lock it in place. No other visible sign noticeable from inside the cab of the truck.

Valley – A small pin on the handle must be extending up through the slot in the head and the handle must be hanging down to be in the locked position. Pop-out indicator visually confirms that the trailer is properly hooked up.

**All meet or exceeds current & proposed industry standards. Weight Capacity was equal on all 5th wheel hitches 20,000 lbs. maximum towing weight and 5,000 lbs. max pin weight capacity (vertical load weight)

Lockable for trailer security – The CURT and Reese 5th wheel hitches offer the ability to pad lock the 5th wheel arm in the coupled position so the trailer can be secured. This is a great safety feature we feel every 5th wheel hitch should have.
