Valley Towing Products
Valley produces the "best kept secret" in 5th Wheel and Gooseneck Hitches. For over a decade, experienced installers agree that Valley 5th wheels install faster and easier than others, and Valley 5th wheels hitch up easier and work more consistently in all conditions, for both "weekend users" as well as experienced, demanding heavy-duty towing aficionados.
WHAT MAKES VALLEY HD HITCHES SO GOOD?
Valley's custom-fit 5th wheel and Gooseneck installation bracket kits are designed by engineers who have very close ties to OE design and engineering personnel; relationships that often give them early access to new truck beds and frames. New hitch or bracket kit development is usually done on actual vehicle frames, obtained right from the factory. CAD (Computer-Aided) designs are then created to develop a prototype, following which our engineers return to the vehicle to verify fit while collecting notes on installation procedures, clearances, and making whatever modifications are required to ensure a high quality fit. The entire event is photographed for tech reference and installation instructions. Prototype samples are then produced that are rigorously tested to both
and Valley VES-001 durability testing regimens.
Valley’s design team has a combined 40-plus years of towing product development experience, and over 100 years of automotive industry knowledge. Our testing technicians have a cumulative 32 years experience and their intricate knowledge of hitch performance is the key to excellence in Valley’s development of towing products.
Valley engineers utilize high-end tools such as Finite Element Analysis to optimize designs, making them stronger and expediting development even before the first prototype is built. High design accuracy is always key, and as such, FARO portable laser scanners are used to acquire data. Valley is proud of it's
AESTHETICS & FUNCTIONALITY:
Valley’s 5th Wheels and Gooseneck Hitches represent the finest in engineering design, manufacturing quality, and user functionality. Valley takes pride in offering the optimal combination of performance, quality and value in heavy-duty towing products.
Valley 5th wheels have long been applauded for offering the most secure and robust jaw design. Our one-piece wraparound jaw on all models ensures a clean and complete hookup while preventing annoying “chucking” and premature king pin wear.
Valley 5th wheel installation kits offer the unbeatable combination of superior construction and ultra-fast installation times (faster times = more profits!). Valley installation kits (a critical part of any installation) feature high-grade fasteners designed and sourced specifically for 5th wheel installations.
Valley’s Stow-A-Ball® Gooseneck hitches provide installers and enthusiasts with an ultra-strong head assembly featuring a heavily reinforced ball socket accessed by a robust release rod mechanism. Coupled with quick-install custom frame bracket kits designed and engineered specifically for each truck model, installation is fast and trouble-free.
Valley engineers and designers strive to develop installation instructions that are as 'fool-proof' as possible, while imparting clear & easy direction from start to finish.
“Valley’s installation instructions for heavy duty products are easy to read and understand, and offer a clear path to a clean and successful installation and setup” state experienced installers. Truck bed measurements and reference points are just some of the extras that make installation easier and less worrisome for new installers!
THE VALLEY ADVANTAGE!
The results of all the planning, design and careful execution are Valley heavy-duty hitches that install quickly using factory holes and attachment points wherever possible, providing the installer and end-user with heavy-duty hitches that do what they're designed to do: tow heavy trailers safely and efficiently.
