These 5th wheelers can be towed by a Ford Ranger, Holden Colorado, Mazda BT-50 or Dodge Ram – provided the ute has a 3.5 tonne towing capacity. At Road Life our team of experienced technicians can install the hitch and electronic breaking system into the ute of your choice (additional cost). A 5th Wheeler is built to extend over the back of the tow ute and sits on a horizontal plate (the 5th wheel) on the tray. The 5th wheel usually sits in the centre of the tray back directly over the rear axle, providing support for the unit. Some coupling devices are designed so that they can be removed from the tray when the vehicle is not being used to tow.
An important feature of the Sunliner Houston series is that they have been designed for Australian and New Zealand conditions and are also light enough to be towed by a range of locally available utes.
