Gooseneck hitches are indispensable tools for semitractors and cab & chassis vehicles, enabling them to tow heavy loads with superior stability and control. Hitches and Couplers specializes in providing top-quality semi tractor gooseneck hitches tailored for these demanding applications.

Understanding Gooseneck Hitches

Gooseneck hitches, such as those offered by Hitches and Couplers, are designed specifically for semitractors and cab & chassis vehicles. Unlike conventional bumper-mounted hitches, these hitches feature a robust ball mount installed in the bed of the vehicle, strategically positioned near or directly above the rear axle. This placement ensures optimal weight distribution, critical for towing large gooseneck trailers.

Applications and Installation

Semi-Tractors: Semi-tractors, ranging from Class 6 to Class 9 trucks, typically mount their gooseneck hitches between the frame rails. It's crucial to maintain a clearance of at least 2 inches between the top of the frame and the bottom of the hitch near the rear axle. This setup enhances towing capacity and stability, making it ideal for transporting heavy loads across various terrains.

Cab & Chassis: For cab & chassis vehicles, Hitches and Couplers offers specialized gooseneck hitches like the 205ST30K-T and 205ST45K-T models. These hitches are designed to be installed above the frame to accommodate exhaust and other potential interference issues. This configuration ensures seamless integration and reliable performance, allowing cab & chassis vehicles to efficiently tow gooseneck trailers without compromising on safety or maneuverability.
