The best trucks used to tow Luxury 5th-wheelers include long bed 3/4 ton or 1 ton vehicles, according to Etrailer. These trucks are capable of pulling more than 15,000 pounds and they are generally powered by diesel engines. Diesel engines use more torque than their gas-powered counterparts.
Some examples of 3/4 trucks include the Ford 250 or GMC 2500. Although dually trucks provide extra traction with towing larger objects, they are not required to pull 5th-wheels, according to Etrailer.
Some examples of 1 ton trucks include the Ford 350 and GM 3500 series, which are available in either gas or diesel variations.
