The R16 offers several unique features that help to create a smooth, quiet fifth-wheel towing experience. Aside from the two-piece jaw that offers a firm and secure connection, stability is also increased by having a pivot beam with a wide front-to-back mounting configuration. The pivot beam also has a built-in vibration-isolator system that dampens both vertical and longitudinal vibration, the result of which is less noise and a better ride.
