Hydralift’s Specialty Built Motorcycle Lift for a 5th Wheel
Hydralift has worked together with 5th wheel chassis manufacturers to develop a specially designed motorcycle lift exclusive for the 5th wheel chassis. Hydralift uses a one piece welded body that is strong but lightweight utilizing a tube frame design that is powered by 12v that is used to operate our new generation hydraulic system. Hydralift’s patented design along with Hydralift’s hydraulic system not only provides you with the Power-Lift with the most power of any other power-lift but Hydralift is also the lightest power-lift on the market.
The Hydralift Motorcycle Lift for a 5th Wheel trailer can be mounted on some 5th wheel trailers, not all 5th wheels. Further information will be required to determine the fit of application. In addition during installation it will be necessary to reinforce the trailer’s frame prior to installing the Hydralift motorcycle lift for a 5th wheel trailer.
Hydralift’s 5th wheel lift is designed to fit chassis between 32″- 88′ wide. With most 5th wheel lift installs a frame reinforcement is necessary along with the proper recommended pin box (Demco’s Glide Ride or MOR/Ryde’s RPB pin box or equivalent). The Hydralift 5th wheel motorcycle lift can be mounted on some, not all 5th wheel trailers. Every 5th wheel application is a custom fit application. The Hydralift’s lifting capacity is restricted to the 5th wheel’s GVWR as to the available chassis carrying capacity. For further information contact your Hydralift installing dealer.

EXCESSIVE REAR OVERHANG / SAMPLE OF ADDING A 3RD AXLE
Some 5th wheels may have an excessive rear overhang that would prevent the addition of a rear motorcycle lift. The 5th wheel trailer pictured above originally was a double axle trailer and had more than the allowed rear overhang to install a Hydralift motorcycle lift for a 5th wheel trailer. This installer added a rear TAG type axle see below.
Adding a 3rd axle to a 5th wheel is really not that difficult. This can simply be a trailing axle that is connected behind the tandem axle set and in most all installs does not require brakes.
The 5th wheel trailer you see above originally was a tandem axle 5th wheel trailer (two axles). The rear overhang was such that a third axle was required to properly distribute the carrying weight of the Hydralift and the motorcycle. The installer added a third axle trailing axle for additional weight distribution and reducing the rear overhang to less then 10′.
The photos to the right is showing a third axle that was added behind the 5th wheel trailers existing tandem axles making the 5th wheel trailer a tripple axle trailer. In addition reinforcing of the chassis frame and suspension were made for the additional weight added. fig A & B to the right.
Hydralift recommends a mechanical pin box when installing a Hydralift on a 5th wheel. These pin boxes are proven to greatly reduce 5th wheel chucking as well as smooth out the harsh start and stop action. These type of pin boxes help to provide a more stable ride for your motorcycle and the Hydralift. Ask your local RV parts store for further information.
