M5™ Max Duty™ Fifth Wheel Hitch, 14,000 lbs. Capacity, Exclusive use with REESE® Max Duty™ Underbed Mounting System

Part No 30947
Tow to the max with your half-ton truck AND still have full use of your truck bed when you’re done! It can happen, thanks to the REESE 14K M5 Max Duty 5th Wheel Hitch. Enjoy using the features of the REESE M5 line of fifth-wheel hitches with your ½ ton truck to pull and haul your trailer, toys, or RV. When you’re done, simply take the Max Duty 5th wheel hitch out of your truck. Your bed will be clean and clear for whatever ‘to-dos’ you have next on your list. That’s because this fifth wheel hitch easily drops into and can be removed from the REESE Max Duty Underbed Mounting System - the first and only under-bed mounting kit on the market designed specifically to have both a 5th wheel or gooseneck hitch mount into the same puck system for ½ ton trucks.

With a weight rating of 14,000 pounds, the Max Duty 5th Wheel Hitch is designed to give you the maximum towing capacity out of your ½ ton pickup. This modular fifth-wheel hitch features a wider leg stance, tighter tolerances, and an exclusive talon jaw that is always ready to receive. With a locking handle and black powder coat finish to resist rust and corrosion, this 5th Wheel Hitch mounts into the exclusive, Max Duty puck pattern with a wide mounting footprint for increased stability. It’s the FIRST 5th wheel designed to be easily transferrable between Ford, GM, and RAM ½ ton pickups. Like all REESE products, the 14K M5 Max Duty fifth wheel hitch is tested to exceed SAE J2638 standards and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

  • COMPATIBILITY: The REESE® M5 Max Duty™ 14K 5th Wheel Hitch is designed to work EXCLUSIVELY with the Max Duty Underbed Mounting System.
  • ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION: REESE’s 14K Max Duty 5th Wheel Hitch comes in three easy-to-assemble pieces (head, center, legs). Installs in just seconds by securing into the Power Pucks of the Max Duty Underbed Mounting kit. When you’re not towing, removing the hitch is just as easy, leaving you with a clean, fully available bed when you’re not towing.
  • CAPACITY: With a weight rating of 14,000 pounds, the Max Duty M5 5th Wheel Hitch is designed to give you the maximum amount of towing capacity out of your Ford, Chevy, GM, or RAM ½ ton truck.
  • TESTED: The REESE Max Duty M5 5th Wheel Hitch is inspected for quality and superior workmanship and is tested to exceed SAE J2638 standards, so you can tow confidently knowing your family and your connections are safe and secure.
