CURT Launches New 30K 5th Wheel HitchPowerRide™ Excels in Professional Capacity, Ergonomic Operation
Eau Claire, WI – June 3, 2021 – CURT, supplier of a complete line of towing products and the leading manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, is excited to announce the launch of its new PowerRide™ 30K 5th wheel hitch. The hitch enters the market as part of CURT’s extensive line of top quality 5th wheel hitches.
PowerRide equips hardworking truck with a professional-grade solution for 5th wheel towing. It is ideal for towing the largest RV trailers, campers and other 5th wheel trailers. It features a 30,000-lb. fully tested rating and a number of distinct features, including a cast head with multi-directional tilt, an easy-to-use self-resetting handle, enhanced portability, and no welding or fabricating required for installation. With its 30K gross trailer weight rating and 7,500-lb. vertical load limit, this CURT 5th wheel offers exceptional towing power and is constructed with a cast steel main body for dependable strength.
The construction and technology of the PowerRide are what make it superior in its class. The hitch uses two interlocking jaws to fully wrap the kingpin for less chucking, and its cast yoke head tilts in multiple directions -- not just forward and backward -- to promote a smooth ride. The self-resetting handle resets the jaws to the ready-to-couple position after uncoupling, saving an extra step in the hookup process.
For installation and removal, PowerRide is unique with a one-pin head removal system. The central pin can be removed as needed, breaking the hitch down into smaller, easier-to-lift pieces. To ensure long-lasting use, the 5th wheel head is equipped with a durable wear indicator which also contributes to smoother towing and eliminates the need for messy grease or a lube plate. The hitch is also equipped with strategically-placed grip points for a comfortable, confident hold when lifting. Additionally, the PowerRide is thoroughly tested to SAE J2638 specifications for safety.
