About this app

Fifth Wheel St. is the premier self-help RV safety app that provides the industry-leading 13-Point Weight Safety Report for fifth wheel or gooseneck trailers. Fifth Wheel St. simplifies the tasks involved with weighing your tow vehicle and trailer with step-by-step instructions. The app is designed especially for RV owners, outdoor recreationalists, farmers and ranchers who tow fifth wheel or gooseneck trailers. The final report details 13 weighing points including 7 points indicating the safety margin or overload conditions by displaying red or green numbers. This app works on all mobile device sizes.
~
Our RV weight safety report app is the best that answers "how to weigh your fifth wheel or gooseneck trailer" and determines if you are towing safely below your weight safety ratings. Our app weighing instructions provide additional glossary terms used in the industry and how to weigh at multiple platform scales and single axle scales.
~
Are you towing below the load ratings?
~
The RV Safety and Education Foundation data indicates that 60% of all tow vehicles and 55% of all 5th wheel trailers exceed one or more weight safety ratings.
~
Ensure you're not the one exceeding a load rating.
~
The number one most-reported RV insurance claim is the result of damage from the sudden release of air from tires, otherwise known as a blowout.
~
An overload combined with under or over inflated tires can cause a sudden blowout or breakdown.
~
When towing a trailer, it’s very important to ensure that the load is distributed evenly.
~
You want to make sure that all necessary safety precautions have been taken to prevent an accident or reduce a blowout event.
~
Even a slight overload, or unequal weight distribution, can seriously restrict the vehicle’s braking and steering capabilities.
~
Higher fuel consumption and driver fatigue are also common side effects of traveling with an overloaded, heavy and generally poor-handling trailer.
~
Install this app and weigh your rig soon to achieve safer towing for you, your family, and all on the road.
~
CAUTION: Do not use this app for conventional towing or RV trailer pre-purchase decision making. To learn more about conventional towing weight safety reports and our RV safety pre-purchase app (RV Tow Check), please visit our web site at http://FifthWheelSt.com

For towing a big fifthwheel I found this app indispensable. Anyone who tows a large trailer knows how important it is to stay within the weight ratings of your trailer, truck frame and brakes. This app makes doing the calculations simple.

The calculator forces you to already have the hitch installed. Not sure if I want to install one on my new truck was trying to see if it was pointless.

If you had read the description of the app, you could have avoided the frustration caused by yourself. I request you remove your comment because it does not apply to this product. I have contacted the reviewer and discussed this. Thus far, he has refused to remove this erroneous post.

Worthless app to aid in help to purchase a 5th wheel. Only after you bought one does the app help but then it's too late as you now own the beast you can't pull. Lol

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. If you were looking for an app to assist you with knowing your vehicle's towing capacity before purchase, the FWS app description doesn't support that. FWS does provide an app entitled RV Tow Check and it's available at http://RVtowCheck.com. RVTC provides realistic towing capacity for all tow vehicles.
