Catalog simplifies fifthwheel ordering

Feb. 25, 2014

Fontaine Fifth Wheel has released a new 20-page catalog that covers its full line of fifthwheels. The catalog replaces multiple individual product brochures to simplify the fifthwheel ordering process.

To make the reordering process as seamless as possible, the catalog includes a breakdown of Fontaine’s part numbering system. Using the part number diagram, a customer can determine which fifthwheel assembly is currently on his or her truck. A matching fifthwheel can then be ordered, or the customer can change the top plate, mounting bracket, release, height, or slide travel.

The catalog answers some frequently asked questions and uses photos to illustrate three areas that should be inspected after every couple. Fontaine’s five duty classes—standard, moderate on-highway, moderate off-highway, severe on-highway, and severe off-highway—are outlined in detail to aid in the selection process.

With five top plate models, nine mounts and several release styles to choose from, the catalog lists more than 175 fifthwheel assembly options. The catalog includes QR codes that link back to additional information at
