Fifth wheeler hitches receive ADR compliance

Caravan World — 19 June 2015

A fifth wheeler hitch, used by three of Australia's leading fifth wheeler manufacturers, has recently undergone testing and has been given compliance under the Australian Design Rules (ADR).

Three models of the Hijacker hitch used by Cut Loose RV 5th Wheelers, Venture Van and Winjana RV are now compliant under ADR 62/02.

The double-pivot and flat-bed hitches are compliant to a load of 3.5t, while the single-pivot is compliant to 3t.

Fifth wheeler owners who run one of these hitches bought from Cut Loose, Venture or Winjana can now obtain compliance plates to attach to their hitches.
