Growth of Automotive Fifth Wheel Coupling Market Projected

Automotive Fifth Wheel Coupling Market: Introduction

The main function of a fifth wheel coupling is providing a link between the towing truck and semi-trailer, leading tracker, dolly or tractor unit. Fifth wheel coupling configuration is used in many camping trailers, which necessitates the coupling to be mounted in the rear of a pick-up truck as a towing vehicle, thus fifth wheel is also represented as campers in the North America region. Fifth wheel coupling consist of a 3 ½ or 2 inch diameter (88.9 or 50.8 mm) vertical steel pin kingpin expanding from the lower part to the front of the trailer. The appearance of a fifth wheel coupling is like a horse-shoe shaped coupling and it is denoted as fifth wheel on the back of a trailer or towing vehicle.

The fifth wheel coupling allows the trailers to slip into the fifth wheel and remain locked into it. Fifth wheel coupling is one of the most reliable towing unit if they are serviced and maintained on time-to-time basis. The connection of the kingpin with the fifth wheel coupling is the only way for the interconnection between the trailer and the vehicle, there is no supplementary device or safety system used. Pintle hooks and couplers are equipped with safety chain so that the trailer remains connected to the fifth wheel while driving on the road. Additionally, Trailer to trailer inter-connection can also be made by using fifth wheels.
