Camco introduces new fifth wheel hitches

GREENSBORO, N.C. — Camco announced today it has released two new fifth wheel hitches, the Eaz-Lift 18K and the 18KS. The 18K is a stationary fifth wheel hitch, and the 18KS is a sliding hitch.

The hitches feature Eaz-Lift quality on a standard base-rail-style bracket system.  The 18K-stationary and 18KS-slider fifth wheel hitches’ universal design allows them to be mounted to any existing base rails or to Eaz-Lift’s heavy-duty rails.  Ideal for a truck with a short bed, the 18KS utilizes the slider system to avoid truck and trailer damage by allowing additional turning clearance.

Features of the 18K and 18KS include:

  • Mounts to industry standard 4- and 10-bolt bed rails
  • 11-degree side-to-side pivot with urethane cushions
  • 32-degree, front-to-back pivot
  • Automatic locking jaws
  • Durable, powder-coated finish
  • 18,000-pound capacity (4,500-pound vertical)
  • Secondary handle lock to ensure jaws have been locked closed

The 18K stationary hitch offers:

  • Adjustable height from 14.5 to 18 inches

The 18KS slider hitch offers these additional features:

  • Adjustable height from 17.5 to 21 inches
  • Displaces hitch 9 inches toward tailgate for tight maneuvering
  • Visible flag on each rail to show the slider has locked in either towing or maneuvering positions
  • Secondary lock pin ensures primary locking mechanism is fully secured
  • Fully enclosed rollers and locking mechanism to minimize debris build-up
