RV Manual: Hooking up to Tow Fifth-Wheel Mobile App

The RV Manual: Hooking up to Tow Fifth-Wheel mobile app provides a sequential checklist for safely hooking up a Fifth-Wheel to be towed. We recommend the tow vehicle selected have a trailer weight rating to handle at least the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the RV you have selected. Please consult with your tow vehicle’s dealer for more information about the specific ratings of your tow vehicle. GoCanvas does not limit the functionality in any way during the 30 day free trial.
