Fifth wheel hitches are the most popular type of cargo trailer, with an estimated 10 to 30 thousand pounds (4-13600 kg) capacity. They can haul large loads without disrupting vehicle stability because they’re connected at either frame or bumper; fifth wheels attach onto the bed above rear axle for added support for driving and central positioning on trucks that have an open bed design – something important when you’re carrying heavy objects such as Tiny Houses.
