Sometimes RV’rs don’t know that they’ve been taking their home-on-wheels beyond its design specifications. This 5th Wheel literally started to come apart at the seams because the crossbeam next to the hitch cracked under heavy loads on too many rough dirt roads. We’re installing a much stronger beam and perhaps gussets to make this 5th Wheel stronger than before. It’s a good idea to check the load limitation specifications on your RV. There you will find the amount of weight the RV is designed to carry. Double check you estimates at the next weigh station just to be safe.
