Blue Ox Products released a new fifth wheel hitch and accessory line. The supplier’s BXR Series fifth wheel hitches include a true kingpin connection with no adapters required.

The BXR2100 5th Wheel Hitch connects to a 2 5/16-inch gooseneck ball. The BXR2100 has a 21,000-pound gross towing capacity and 5,000-pound vertical load limit.

The BXR2410 5th Wheel Hitch connects to industry standard rails. The BXR2410 has a 24,000-pound gross towing capacity and a 6,000-pound vertical load limit.

“Traveling the country talking with our dealer partners, we have been continually asked when we would bring Blue Ox brand quality to the fifth wheel market,” Blue Ox CEO Mike Hesse said. “We listened to the wants and needs of our customers and applied those in designs and tests for our new hitches. The new BXR series brings the same high-quality manufacturing customers expect from Blue Ox. Our team could not be prouder in helping a new segment of RVers on the road to adventure.”

Both BXR fifth-wheel hitches feature a funnel-shaped hitch head helping guide the kingpin into place. The design significantly reduces false hookup and trailer drop rate, Blue Ox said, as well as 360-degree nesting around the kingpin.

The hitches include a dual articulating head moving front, back and side-to-side. The two-piece designs weigh 122 pounds and have three adjustable heights: 17, 18 and 19 inches. Both have been tested for safety with SAE J2638 standards.

“With our unique design, we not only provide one of safest hitches on the market but also one that is simple and easy to use,” said Paul Choquette, company director of operations.
